Post-game Reactions

On this final grim day before the lockout, the Celtics extended the qualifying offer to Jeff Green (for $5.9M). As a result, Green becomes a restricted free agent this offseason and can solicit offers from other teams. The Celtics will have ten days to match any offer Green receives (although this time period could be shortened in the next CBA).

For the Celtics, Green’s return is no sure thing. Should he receive a multi-year offer at unfavorable money from another team, Boston will have to balance the value of his services and future trade value against maintaining cap flexibility in 2012-13. It’s likely Danny Ainge would prefer Green return for a single year at the QO and that may also suit Green, who, with a strong season, could pump up his value heading into unrestricted free agency in 2012. The other option — if it still exists in the new CBA, no sure thing — is a sign and trade.

Additionally, the C’s exercised their 2012-13 option on Avery Bradley. Bradley becomes Boston’s third player under contract for the 2012-13 season, joining Paul Pierce ($16.8M), and Rajon Rondo ($11M). 2011 draft picks JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore are ineligible to be signed until a new CBA is in place.

    I am disappointed the lockout is occuring, but it will help the Celtics regroup and find out what they need to do to hopefully win a championship

    I'm watching game 4 of the 2010 NBA finals right now. I really miss the days when he was awesome. If only we could trade new BBD for old BBD.

    We should pick up Millsap or Jefferson, as the Jazz now have a logjam at the 4 & 5

      Neither of those guys really fit into the 'play some defense at some point' philosophy the Celtics have in place, though I like both players. It would be hard to preach defense winning Championship with Big Al in the green.
