BOSTON – The Boston Celtics announced today that they have signed free agent forward Jeff Green. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are thrilled to be able to have Jeff back with the Celtics,” said Danny Ainge, Celtics President of Basketball Operations. “Jeff’s versatility on offense and ability to guard players out on the perimeter is something that we are looking forward to having on the court this season.”

BOSTON – Bad news is always made worse when it arrives in unexpected fashion. Jeff Green can tell you all about that.

Minutes before doctors relayed news to him on Dec. 9, 2011, that he was suffering from an aortic aneurism, Green was on his way to cashing in on a brand new contract with the Boston Celtics and helping the team chase its 18th World Championship.

Then his life changed in an instant.
