    Did Boston really want James Harden instead of Jeff Green?

    I saw this article http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/05/14/what-if-james-harden-had-been-traded-to-boston-in-the-perkins-deal/related/ and wondered if there really was any truth to it? Was Boston really after Harden and settled for Green?

    I heard Mike Breen say that during the OKC/Memphis game too.

    makes sense , Harden is a better player. Better on D and more potential. He is a huge part to what their doing , playing a bigger role than Perk.

    Let's just hope we can resign Green, at least he's a restricted free agent.

    Just as long as Green's price isn't too high.

    You want more Jeff Green? Im actually a fan of his , thought all of Boston was killing him. I really thought we wanted Harden , both him and Green make sense. I think Green was placed in a tough spot. Most Sports fans have no idea what their talking about and think the sky was falling when we lost Perk. Green was , is and will be a better player than Perk.

    Green's price is fixed, the Cs on his rights at about 6 million for the coming year.  All they have to do is sign him.

    In Response to Re: Did Boston really want James Harden instead of Jeff Green? : At 6'5" he defends shooting guards just as good as Green at 6'8" defends SF's. Green can be just as good a  Sf as Harden a SG... its just that Harden was abruptly traded so he is showing what a telnt he currently is. Green still has to prove it. If we had a younger Pierce, no shooter in Ray (who needs less mins but can do his thing for 3-4 more years) and more SG's than SF's to fear in the East... i'd rather have Harden. But his best asset is also Ray's... We have 3 guys who can defend SG's... the best players in the East are SF's... and Green can defend 3's that Harden cannot. so I'd  take Green.

    I believe the right to match an offer (restriction) is set for the C's at the minimum of $5.9 MM but Green can still get a greater offer from another team and if it's too high for DA to match then he could be gone.
