The Boston Celtics have re-signed forward Jeff Green.
Green missed all of last season after a physical exam revealed an aortic aneurysm, swelling in the body's main artery. He had surgery and became a free agent before signing Wednesday.
Green, 6-9, had been expected to play a key role as a backup forward last season and is being counted on to do that next season. The Celtics obtained him from Oklahoma City in February 2011 with center Nenad Krstic and a first-round draft pick from the Los Angeles Clippers for center Kendrick Perkins and guard Nate Robinson.
Green averaged 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 32.4 minutes in 2010-11. For his four-year career, the former Georgetown player has averaged 13.9 points and 5.5 rebounds.
