Report: Celtics, Jeff Green working on four-year, $40 million contract

Unrestricted free agent forward Jeff Green, whose one-year, $9 million contract was voided after he was diagnosed with a heart ailment during the last preseason, appears likely to stay with the Boston Celtics, his agent, David Falk, told Sam Amick of SI.com.

"I’m confident it’ll get done," Falk told Amick. "I guess they got (Brandon) Bass' (contract) done, which is great. Jeff is trying to get a sense of what the team looks like first before he makes a commitment, but I expect he’ll be there and I expect it’ll be done by the 11th (when the free agency moratorium ends). We’ve gotten a lot of interest from other teams. But as far as Boston, we’re very confident we’ll get it done."

One source with knowledge of the talks tells Amick that the deal is in the four-year, $40 million neighborhood. That led to these tweets from SI.com's Zach Lowe:
