Celtics make qualifying offer to Jeff Green, pick up Bradley option

Danny Ainge took the same approach with Jeff Green that I did with every assignment ever in college. Waiting until practically the last minute, the C's announced that they have officially made a qualifying offer to Jeff Green.  Here's the email:

The Boston Celtics announced today that they have extended a qualifying offer to forward Jeff Green, making him a restricted free agent. The qualifying offer allows the Celtics to match any off he receives from another team.

Green, a 6’9” forward, averaged 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 32.4 minutes per game split between Oklahoma City and Boston during the 2010-11 season.  In his 26 games with the Celtics, Green shot 48.5 percent from the field.  The fourth year pro also shot 43.4 percent from three-point territory in nine games during the playoffs.  In his first Celtic start against the Wizards on April 11, Green recorded 20 points and a career-high tying 15 rebounds.  Green, a member of the 2008 All-Rookie First Team, has posted career averages of 13.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 315 games.

They also pass along word that they picked up Avery Bradley's option for 2012-13.  Not sure why that needed to be done today, but they did it.

    I got a suspicion that Perk is damaged goods…OKC now has a bad contract in Kendrick.

    Nene is opting out, he’d be a good fit here?

    I like Tyson Chandler, who just opted out too, more than Nene. Not that it matters now, there will be no free agent signings at all during the lock-out, which will make for a boring summer in the NBA.
