Jeff Green 2013-2014 Season Outlook

285 posts in this topic

I am wondering what people are expecting for Jeff Green this year on the new Celtics team. He should be a focal point moving forward.

Thoughts? Projections? Bueller?

He's obviously going to be relied upon much more. Last season when he was good, he was REALLY good, but he'll need to be more dependable this coming season.

I agree, he seems like more of a guy who flourishes when he's not being heavily relied on. This next year he may be one of the main Celtics, so will he take a step forward and take advantage, or will he get overworried and be inconsistent???? I guess that's the big question.

His numbers from last postseason are what I'm expecting.

Nope, I don't think he has the heart for replicate those numbers for an entire 82 game season. Sad but true, he was always a midlevel talented guy you played too many minutes. He will have no doubt some veryu good games but that's it.

Who else is going to score on the team? A very empty 20 points on low efficiency is very reasonable.

I'm also dubious. Rondo is the candidate for a total blow-up this season, but there's a ton of "if's" there...

My mild prediction. Guy was a decent fantasy contributor when he got starter minutes for the Thunder. No reason he can't reproduce a decent fantasy line now.

17 ppg, 6rebs, 1.7 apg, 1.0 stl

42% FG, 80% FT, 5FT attempts, and over 1 3p make per game.

For reference, during his last season with OKC, he was #55 overall.

Pretty much a poor mans Danny Granger from his good, healthy days sans the 2+ 3ptm per game

I think this guy is going to be a trender so I just want to make sure I'm on the right page with him. He does seem like more of a mid-level talent, but he's not bad and does have a good opportunity. Sometimes bad teams falls behind in games and players from the bad team can easily rack up the production, from a fantasy perspective this can be very useful when in reality the player is not winning any games.

So that makes him Rudy Gay?

That's actually a pretty solid comparison. I think we can expect Gay-type numbers from Green this season.

I dont think Green will ever steal the ball with the frequency of Rudy Gay, but he might be slightly more efficient with fg% and tos.

I wouldn't except any sort of positives from Green's FG% this season. He's never had great shot selection, and his touch around the rim, while improving, is pretty bad for someone of his length. Considering how he will be the only legitimate offensive option for Boston next year (sadly), he's going to be looking at a lot of bad shots he'll have to put up. However, I think where Green makes up for the loss in steals is points and three's.

Surprisingly Green's career fg% is 45%, the same as Rudy G. I think you are right though. He could be forced to really jack a lot of contested shots next season. However, playing with Rondo (no sure thing he'll be there) and those easy buckets could help counter balance the impact.

Don't forget the blocks!

I'm also a little concerned about his consistency, and his ability to fold in the spotlight... that said, he, like Gay and Granger, has at times been one of the few guys that could get you a 3, stl, and block all in 1 game with at least some regularity. He definitely had a strong uptick in blocks to end the season last year. With a career bpg of 0.8, he was closer to 1.2 bpg from Feb-April this past season. He had a few 3+ block games in there too.

I'd consider him more like Gay with less stls and a few more blks potentially.

He could finish in the top 50, but i think you are reaching if you snag him before round 6.

My advice let him fall to you and reap the benefits of a top 50 player.

If you want Green, I'm not sure you can afford to wait that long. Even with his underwhelming track record to date, he's still a super athletic wing with a lot of potential who will be one of the primary options of a bad team this year. Plus, he still has Rondo as his PG, and I'm hearing a lot of sources speculating Rondo will be back by opening day. Considering his work ethic and determination, I wouldn't be surprised at that one bit.

His FG% has been trending up for a couple years now, although one was incomplete. I think 46 is reasonable, and I could see it going higher, even. 43 or 42 sound low.

My worry for him is that he felt like he proved his point last year. He made a big deal about his renewed focus after his (literal) heart problems, and I think that accounts for some of the improvement we saw from him. Will he still have the same fire?

Absolutely. To be honest, Green looked extremely timid for pretty much the entire first half of the season. He didn't really start picking it up until after the ASG, and even then there was still some inconsistency. It wasn't until the last few weeks and the postseason when he really started to blossom, and I think he'll be looking to improve even further as a focal point of the C's offense. Besides, there are still A LOT of glaring flaws in his game that he needs to fix. There are definitely a lot of things Green still needs to prove, but even as a well-spoken Green critic, I'm looking forward to this upcoming season.

Yeah he's gonna have a leadership role in Boston now due to the fact that he is actually one of the highest paid players on the squad. I think he will step up now that Garnett and Pierce are gone.

You won't actually know until the regular season so you gotta take the risk if you want the reward. In saying that I don't think it's such a risk drafting him in 4th/5th round. He's prob be 100% fit and healthy to start the season for first time in a while.

I think he has legit potential to be this year's James Harden. I won't project him THAT high, but I think he is a 8 cat monster. 20-22 pts, 5-6 rebs, 3-3.5 assists, 1-1.5 3's, 0.7-1.2 in blocks and steals, 80% ft's on 4+ attempts. 44+ fg%. The only worry is that as the only legit scoring option (Rondo will score but we all know he's a bad shooter) Green will force up some shots and get some real tough D played on him. He's a great athlete that can shoot and do it all though, and I am salivating at his potential. There are some players I will MAKE SURE are on my team, and this is one of those guys.

I think his fg suffers from extra attention and shot chucking...prob around 42%...i have him pegged early 4th round...i know someone in my ultra competitive league will take a chance early in round 4...my question for you is...Green or Leonard? Green more points, Leonard more peripherals and better fg%
