“I’ve been working out in the gym a lot,” a visibly bulked up Green said. “I’ve put on some weight.” Nearly 10 pounds, according to strength and conditioning coach Bryan Doo. And on top of the added weight, Green has also refined his game on the court. “There’s so much that I have to have my eye on, but I try to conquer everything,” he said, alluding to his versatile floor game. “I think I did a good job of that this summer. So I’ve just got to transfer it into the season.” NBA.com

Now at age 28, entering the prime of his career, Green said he understands and embraces his increased responsibility in the Celtics’ success. “I’ve been working on everything basically,” he said last week. “There’s not one thing I didn’t work on. Just coming into camp in good shape, new focus, and a lot of people say it’s a different vibe they feel from me now and I just have to transfer it on the court, continue to get better as a player, and find a way to stay consistent. I think that’s been my biggest fall throughout my career, so I’ve just got to find a way to do that.” Boston Globe

"Just getting better as a player, all around," Green said. "It was more just becoming a better all-around player, trying to take the next step and become a leader on this team and will my team to win. That's my main focus, just get better at each spot on the court." CSNNE.com

Turner is 6-foot-7 and a mix of shooting guard and small forward, while Green, two inches taller, is a small forward or stretch 4. But there is some overlap. And the presence of Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk at power forward would seem to push Green toward the 3. “I’m not concerned,” said agent David Falk, who represents Green, Turner and Sullinger. “I don’t think Evan Turner coming in is going to supplant Jeff Green. But it’s impossible to figure out how Danny (Ainge) is going to solve the puzzle. That’s the challenge, and Danny’s a very intelligent man. I’m sure he will find a way to solve the puzzle.” Boston Herald

"We picked Boston as much for the historical culture and for Brad, as for anything else," Turner's agent David Falk told CSNNE.com on Tuesday. Falk, who also represents Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger, discussed how Boston's use of versatile players in the past influenced his client's decision to sign with the Celtics. There were two teams that Turner was seriously considering. Falk declined to reveal the other team, but a league source indicated that it was the Minnesota Timberwolves. "If you look back into the 1980s when you had Danny (Ainge) and (Dennis Johnson) in the backcourt, (Kevin) McHale and Larry upfront ... there was a lot of diversity in the way the players were used," Falk said. "Evan's a multi-dimensional player." CSNNE.com

We’ve been told that Washington isn’t presently interested in Jeff Green at his numbers ($9.2 million next year and a player option for the same in 2015-16), and that a number of teams are waiting to see where the Celts land in the lottery before entering into different deal discussions.

Jeff Green: He was a volume scorer and shooter on a bad team, with two more years at $9.2 million each — the second not guaranteed — left on his contract. He’s eminently available if there’s a contender who believes Green can fit in as a third or fourth guy. Boston Herald

But in the game before his most-recent 39-point outing, Green did something none of those eight did: score single digits. And in the game after his-most recent 39-point outing, Green did something none of those eight did: score single digits. Nine points last Thursday, 39 Sunday, five Monday. He played more than 35 minutes in all three games, too, so it’s not a lack of opportunity. This is just who Jeff Green is. He’s scored 25 points a dozen times this season. And he’s scored single digits another dozen times. Nobody else with as many 25-point games has so many single-digit games. NBCSports.com

Jeff Green knows what you think. He claims to ignore the noise, but he knows. He gets that people are disappointed in him when he goes from monster to mundane in 24 little hours. He feels the frustration of Celtics followers breathing down on him when he blends into the statistical scenery the game after looking like one of the best handful of players in the NBA. And, respectfully, he’s paying those opinions no mind. “I’m playing,” Green said. “I mean, that’s all I care about. I’m healthy. “I can care less about what other people have to say about my performance. You know, everybody’s entitled to their own opinion, so I really don’t pay attention to it. I’m just trying to come into each year being healthy and being able to play this game.” Boston Herald
