The agent for Jeff Green confirmed that a deal is in place for his client to return to the Celtics next season.

"We've reached agreement in principal for him to return," agent David Falk said. "You see a situation like Jeff's where there's a tremendous level of goodwill that been built up over the last year and half. I've got a long memory. I remember people who treat me well and I remember people who don't."

Green’s contract is expected to average close to $10 million per season.

When asked if Green was official, Danny Ainge said: "It's looking good. We intend to sign him. We anticipate it being (official) by Wednesday."
