HoopsHype David Falk rumors


February 1, 2013 Updates

Sullinger's agent, David Falk, said Sullinger is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for next season's training camp. "He had (back) spasms on Wednesday night (in a home game against Sacramento), was in pain and went to the hospital," Falk told USA TODAY Sports by phone. "There were alternatives...He could've tried medication, steroids or cortisone. But he's 20 years old. We all agree that we have to look at this long term and that the benefits of fixing it now and having him come back 100 percent in training camp and being ready to go far outweighed potential short term benefits of trying him to play."

In an attempt to satiate those still scrutinizing this contract, SI.com spoke to three league insiders (Falk, an Eastern Conference scout and a rival general manager) who shed light on Boston's rationale, Green's true value and more. Agent David Falk "Like most deals, there will probably be people who think that he was overpaid. I always feel he could have got a little more money, but because Jeff had such a strong feeling about returning to Boston, he [did this deal]. I feel that if he would've told me, 'I don't care where I go, just get me the most money,' then he probably could've gotten $11 or $12 million a year. "Because Boston withdrew the [one-year, $9 million] qualifying offer in January [after discovering the heart condition], he became an unrestricted free agent six months before everybody else. We had a lot of discussions with people. No one should [discount] it when I said we talked to 14 teams. Some were serious, some were inquiries, and I definitely feel we could've gotten him more money." SI.com

Agent David Falk, who said Friday an agreement with the Celtics on Jeff Green’s contract should come early this week, clearly is pleased with how talks have progressed. Green agreed to a one-year, $9 million contract with the team last December, but the discovery of an aortic aneurism during a physical voided the contract. Falk returned to the same starting point this month and got his wish. The new deal, again starting at $9 million, will be worth $36 million over four years, according to a source. Boston Herald

Boston has agreed to terms with forward Jeff Green on a multi year deal, according to his agent, David Falk. No word yet on the terms, though keep in mind that the Celtics issued a $9 million qualifying offer last off-season before he had heart surgery. They are confident he is fully healthy. Sulia
