Celtics waive Orien Greene
The Boston Celtics announced today that the club has requested waivers on guard Orien Greene. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Greene was selected by the Celtics in the second round (53rd overall) in the 2005 NBA Draft. He appeared in 80 games (five starts) for the Celtics last season, averaging 3.2 ppg, 1.8 rpg, 1.6 apg in 15.4 mpg. Greene scored a career-high 14 points on April 17 vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers, matching the mark two days later in the season finale vs. the Miami Heat.
Insideoops.com Editor Says: The Celtics just grabbed a few point guards in the 2006 Draft. And, they still have Delonte West. Orien Greene's services were no longer needed. I think he's good enough to find another job, not as a starter, but maybe the second guard off the bench.
