Report: Hawks interested in trade for Jeff Green
Celtics forward reportedly drawing interest from Atlanta, who would have to way long-term implications.
It's going to cost #Atlanta DeMarre Carroll and more— Mitch Lawrence (@Mitch_Lawrence) February 9, 2014
This is a fascinating idea. GM Danny Ferry has signaled that he's reluctant to add long-term salary. Green has $18.4 million left over the next two seasons in Boston, with a player option for his last year at $9.2 million. Is that a big enough chunk to keep them away from a deal like this? Carroll is only on the books for $2.4 million next season. They have Elton Brand's expiring $5 million and Lou Williams only has one more season left at a little over $5 million.
Is Green enough of an upgrade to warrant long-term committment from Ferry without a superstar? I'll admit that a Teague-Green-Millsap-Horford core sounds great, but it's also not a title contender. The fact that Atlanta's even mentioned with Green at this point may signal that Ferry's looking to at least make a significant upgrade through trade rather than pursue pure salary space.
