Season stats: 10.1 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists
Chances Rivers was referring to him: Medium
Case for trading: If the Celtics can find someone to send Green’s four-year, $32-million plus contract to, they could free up a lot of money. Green is being paid like a starter, but he’s yet to reach that level of play. Time will tell if he can get there as he continues to recover from heart surgery a year ago.
Case for keeping: On the court, Green has been much better lately, averaging 10.1 points on 47 percent shooting in almost 25 minutes per game since a win over the Knicks on Jan. 7. In those increased minutes, Green has shown increased stamina and a turnover percentage (turnovers per 100 plays) that has dropped from 12 to 6.
