Report: Celtics to waive Donte Greene, he’s headed to China

Donte Greene was traded to the Celtics in August in the Fab Melo trade and Greene was always a long shot to make the team — Boston went and got him to save money because his deal was not guaranteed. They were going to cut him free at some point.

So Green was looking at other options.

Apparently he found one in China, reports Hoopshype.

Other sources have confirmed Green will be waived, and as the report he is headed to China comes on the record from his agent it seems pretty solid.

The Chinese season ends in February (when exactly depends on how a team does in the playoffs) so Green will be back as a free agent and able to sign with an NBA team for the stretch run if there is interest.

Greene played four okay seasons in Sacramento then missed all of last season with a broken ankle. If he’s proved he’s healthy maybe some team will grab the 6’11” forward when he’s done overseas.

      So the Celtics are tanking because they waived a player who would’ve probably be the 13th or 14th man on the bench?

        Well it’s official, you missed my sarcasm!

        Also, he’d be closer to 17.
