NBA Trade Deadline Targets: Jeff Green

With just two weeks until the All-Star break, the Pistons find themselves a half game out of the playoffs in an embarrassingly weak Eastern Conference. With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, Joe Dumars will almost certainly make a move that could make or break the season.

Jeff Green was a standout at Georgetown before being drafted No. 5 overall in 2007 by the Boston Celtics. He was traded to Seattle on draft night and spent three years with the SuperSonics and the Thunder. Green was traded back to the Celtics in 2011 at the trade deadline, but missed the entire 2011-2012 season with a heart complication

After being absent from the playoffs for nearly four consecutive seasons, the Detroit Pistons finally have a chance of returning to the NBA postseason. As the all-star break approaches, the team vies with the Charlotte Bobcats and New York Knicks for that coveted eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Strong Goaltending and Canucks’ Lack of Offense Helps Wings

The Vancouver Canucks have struggled as of late.

Its goal scoring and behind the bench presence has been far from exemplary this year. Head coach for the Canucks, John Tortorella, returned for his first game behind the bench in 15 games, after threatening and attacking another team’s players and staff in the locker room back in January.

Vancouver could not quite get a hold on the speedy Red Wings offense, giving the team many chances. Luckily for Tortorella’s team, Eddie Lack was not lacking any sort of confidence between the pipes. The backup goaltender stopped 29 of 30 shots from the Wings and did not give them much space to shoot into.
