    • I dropped Markieff Morris for J. Green last night. He plays well today....

    • I don't see him as a consistent option this year. He might manage to string together a three game run with his next outing, but I still wouldn't trust him til he has a starting gig and over 30 minutes locked down. I'd say his OKC numbers are a very high ceiling for him and I don't see him getting that kind of run in Bean town til next year at the soonest. This year he's pretty much Marvin Williams with a bit more name recognition.

      That said fools will grab him just like I'm sure they're grabbing Josh Howard right now, then dump him back in the pond in a few days when they realize they netted a sucker.

      • I'd have to disagree with Dillon on this one, which is rare since we mostly agree on things. lol.
        I've watched all Celtic's summer league, pre season, and regular season games. I think Jeff Green could easily turn into a player with mid-late round value in standard leagues. But I don't htink it's going to happen over night.
        On every single interview he has, he talks about how serious his heart issue was, how hard of a recovery it still is, how he isn't back to normal yet, but is making strides in the right direction. So in 3 weeks or a month when he is fully 100% healthy and in shape again, and the Celtics realize they need to inolve him A LOT in the offense for them to win, I think he will have some consistent value.
        I hate projecting numbers, but if I had to guess I'd say in the: 13pts, 6rebs, 2 asts, 1stl, .7 blk, 1 3PTM range.
