Green wasn’t quite far enough back. Considering the court is 94 feet long and the free-throw line is 15 feet from the baseline, I’d call Green’s attempt 86 feet. 2. Green didn’t get the shot off in time. By rule, it’s possible for a player to take a jumper in 0.3 seconds, but that doesn’t mean he necessarily he does it that quickly. NBCSports.com

Should the Celtics or any team seek a trade for Monroe, the 6-foot-11, 253-pound former No. 7 overall pick would have to waive his Bird rights, which diminishes the amount of money he could make this summer. Still, Ainge would have enough cap space in 2015 to offer Monroe a hefty contract, and Boston is made more attractive by the presence of Monroe’s fellow Georgetown product Jeff Green. “We’re really good friends,” said Monroe. “Obviously, he’s originally from D.C., so he’s always home in the summer, and I spend a lot of time back at school, so we’re together a lot. We have the same agent and stuff like that, so we have a pretty good relationship. I would say we’re good friends.” WEEI.com

Should Green decline his $9.2 million player option for the 2015-16 season, he too would become an unrestricted free agent, and the Hoya duo has discussed joining forces on the Celtics, even if in jest. “We joke about it,” said Monroe, who could command a max deal in the four-year, $60 million range this summer. “We all joke about it, man, but obviously it’s a lot more than us two coming here or us two talking about it. Right now, I’m just focused on where I’m at. Whenever the time is and if everything is right, then obviously I’ll always weigh my options, but right now I’m not worried about that.” WEEI.com

Green said he received a text directing him to an undisclosed article that suggested he desired to be traded from Boston. Unprompted, Green addressed the story -- one that most of the assembled media was unaware of -- after Sunday's game. "Before you start, I just want to clear the air about some B.S. rumor that came out," Green said. "I don’t know if the person who made this article is in this [group of reporters], but the rumor about me wanting to get traded is definitely false. I said that I was frustrated with losing, not frustrated with the team. So if the words didn’t come from my mouth, I'd appreciate if you do not write a dumb--- article like that." ESPN.com

Green was asked how he feels about Boston and whether he wants to be here long term to see through this rebuilding process. "I want to stay here," Green said. "I love this team. I love being here." Later he added, "If I didn’t [want to be here], I wouldn’t have signed [his most recent] contract to come back here. I’m happy where I’m at, happy with the coach, management, front office, everybody. I haven’t been happy like this in years. It’s a good place for me." ESPN.com

He is playing at a level that if he were to opt out of his contract at the end of this season, he would be among the more sought-after free agents. A league executive told CSNNE.com on Saturday that the market for Green is as strong, "if not stronger", than it is for Rajon Rondo, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. "They're two totally different players and their roles with a team are different, too," he said. "But Green can do a lot of things to help just about any team, as long as you're not making him the guy you build around. Green's the guy you add to the guy you're trying to build around." CSNNE.com

It was Boston's fourth loss in their past five games, and the disappointment from such setbacks is shifting towards frustration for Green. "All-time high" was how Green described his frustration level to Comcast SportsNet New England's Abby Chin. Green added, "I'm tired of losing." CSNNE.com

Green has displayed jaw-dropping athleticism on many of his plays this season, specifically getting into the lane for powerful dunks, and on LeBron-esque chase down blocks. Green doesn’t feel he has done anything differently this season during his hot start, though. “I’m just doing the same thing and that’s just being aggressive. There’s no difference,” said Green, after the demoralizing loss to Phoenix. WEEI.com

Jeff Green broke up the media scrum before the game to give his former coach, Scott Brooks, a hug. “Been a long time since I’ve seen you,” Green told Brooks. “How you been?” “Been good,” Brooks told him. “Shooting a lot of threes, aren’t you?” “Yeah,” Green shot back. “Don’t leave me open. It’s going to continue to go up.” Boston Globe
