When news broke that veteran Memphis Grizzlies wing Danny Green was going to be bought out, fans of the Boston Celtics grew excited about the possibility of seeing Green as a member of their favorite club.
But that outcome was not to be, with Green instead heading to the Cleveland Cavaliers to help bolster their rotation at the 3. Some Celtics fans were irked, perhaps also by the lack of any signing to the team’s open roster spot, but some specifically at letting Green slip through the club’s fingers at a moment when the team should be gearing up for a title run.
But according to the man himself, per CLNS Media’s Bobby Manning, “it was the Celtics not communicating, not getting back to him.”
“They said they weren’t ready to make a move at that time,” he continued, raising more questions with that news than it answers.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what else they had to say about the possibility of Green to Boston going bad.
