The Boston Celtics are a team in need of some fresh impetus, and in recent weeks their GM Danny Ainge has revealed they are planning an active offseason to achieve as much.

And it looks like their plans this summer could begin with the exit of one of their ever-present stars - Jeff Green.

Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald is reporting that Green, the Celtic's top scorer this past season, is "eminently available if there's a contender who believes Green can fit in as a third or fourth guy."

Green led the team in appearances in 2013-14, taking to the court in all 82 regular-season games, and averaged 16.9 points per game in the process.

But with the Celtics management keen to revitalise a struggling core roster, it appears that they are willing to shop anyone in order to entice a fruitful trade.

The Celtics have been linked in recent days for moves for former star Paul Pierce, and even a 2014 All-Star.

Murphy also believes that Rajon Rondo could be set to leave the Celtics should the franchise pick up a top rated point guard in the NBA draft.
