Report: Celtics Forward Jeff Green ‘Liked’ By Washington Wizards

John Wall, Jeff GreenSomebody’s crushing on Jeff Green.

In the wake of their best playoff showing in 10 years, the Washington Wizards are looking to shake things up. They don’t have much of a choice, since key players Trevor Ariza and Marcin Gortat are free agents, and the team is understandably worried about both players’ affordability.

This is where Green, a native of the Washington, D.C., area, comes in. The Wizards have “long liked” Green, according to Grantland’s Zach Lowe, and the fact that he has just two seasons at $9.2 million each remaining on his contract is attractive to Washington.

Ariza and Gortat each made $7.7 million this season in the last year of their respective deals. Power forward Nene is on the books for $26 million over the next two seasons, and John Wall’s five-year maximum extension kicks in next season at more than $13.7 million.

Thus, the Wizards’ “liking” Green. But do they like like him? We’ll let you know after Brooke slips him a note in homeroom.
