I don't even think the Celtics would trade Jeff Green for Andrea. Sorry guys.
Come on guys you know Jeff Green came off a surgery and hasn't played for a year he's rusty the only thing I worry about is how it affects rotation.
Yikes.. I want Bargnani off this team but for Jeff Green? Ugh, no thank-you. I'd rather just amnesty Bargnani and then look for a SF in free agency. Jeff Green will be a very hard salary to move. He has 4 years left after this one and has a loooong way to go before he even becomes as close to the player he was in OKC, and even then he was slightly average. I liked Jeff Green for his potential but he's now 26. Even though he lost a year, most athletes plateau at around 26, and Green has always relied on his athleticism.
I do hope he bounces back, but I wouldn't want to take that gamble that he will.
It might be a case of buying low with Green. OKC traded him because they needed interior toughness in the playoffs, and Perkins had a relatively high asking price at the time. Green was the unfortunate odd man out when compared to Durant, Westbrook, and Harden. But I don't think that's a knock on Green at all. He's versatile/multi-skilled, and could simply need a larger role to take his game to the next level.
If we are certain that Green's medical issues are no longer a concern, I would seriously consider this trade. The only reason I hesitate is the length of his contract.
The other thing to consider is that if we acquire Green, you better believe more moves are coming. Green would be our 6th small forward (with Anderson, Pietrus, Ross, Fields and Kleiza)
