Mark Murphy of The Boston Herald is the first guy with reported terms of the deal as Jeff Green has reportedly signed for 4 Years/$36 Million, a bit under the rumored 4 years/40 million dollar deal from last week. Agent David Falk, who said Friday an agreement with the Celtics on Jeff Green’s contract should come early this week, clearly is pleased with how talks have progressed. Green agreed to a one-year, $9 million contract with the team last December, but the discovery of an aortic aneurism during a physical voided the contract. Falk returned to the same starting point this month and got his wish. The new deal, again starting at $9 million, will be worth $36 million over four years, according to a source.

Four mil ain't no chump change.
Perhaps we're getting closer to having solved the latest mystery from the Grassy Knoll, i.e., perhaps the two sides are still choosing the final numbers.
