Report: Danny Ainge shopping Jeff Green to Atlanta Hawks in possible trade
Posted By Mike Petraglia On February 9, 2014 @ 7:16 pm In General | 45 Comments
The New York Daily News reported Sunday that the Celtics  vice president of basketball operations is shopping the forward around and the Atlanta Hawks  reportedly have serious interest in acquiring him before the Feb. 20 deadline.
Green has $18.4 million left in guaranteed money after this season, including a player option for $9.2 million for 2015-16. He is leading the Celtics  in scoring this season at 16.3 while playing in all 52 games through Sunday.
Sam Amick of USA Today reported Sunday that the Knicks might be willing to take on Green’s contract  or that of Gerald Wallace  in order to entice Ainge to trade Rondo to the Knicks in exchange for a package that could include Amar’e Stoudemire and several young players.
The Hawks are clearly looking to add pieces to a roster they think can make a move in the underwhelming Eastern Conference this season. They stood 25-24 entering Sunday’s action, in fourth place in the East, just a half-game ahead of Chicago Bulls .
