Will Jeff Green stay or go?With KG and Ray Allen's time in Boston limited, is Jeff Green the future? Danny Ainge and the Celtics have to decide soon.

A week from today, at the latest, we are likely to know which one of four avenues Jeff Green will take.

"I expect Jeff Green to be in a training camp on December 9,'' Falk said Friday.

But will that training camp be in Waltham, Mass., or somewhere else?

Danny Ainge said he would like Green back, but not at too ridiculous a cost. Falk already turned down a lucrative offer for Green last year from Oklahoma City. The two sides have had what Falk called "friendly" discussions.

"The reality of the situation is that over the next two years, the Big Three are going to retire,'' Falk said Friday. "To maintain a competitive, playoff team, if they keep Jeff Green and [Rajon] Rondo, they have two strong pieces on which to build. If they only have one, they're going to have to blow it up and start all over again.

"They already have Rondo. Jeff represents a very important part of the future of this team. He's like the swing vote in a Supreme Court decision," Falk said.

Let's explore the four options.
