Jeff Green deal not officially done but agent calls it ‘imminent’

David Falk, the agent for Jeff Green, said Wednesday that his clients contract is still not done but he and the Celtics are working out “minor contract details” and that the deal is “imminent.”

The two sides have agreed to the framework of a four-year, $36 million deal to return to the Celtics and Green participated in a press conference nearly two weeks ago, but Falk said they are still negotiating issues dealing with the new collective bargaining agreement.

“I expect it will be done imminently,” he said. “Just some collective bargaining issues that changed. Just some details stuff, nothing serious.”

Green missed all of last season after surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm but has been cleared to return to the NBA. Falk said Green was grateful for how the Celtics treated him during his recovery process and it was his top priority to return to Boston.
