Bucher: Where C's stand without Green

ESPN's Ric Bucher looks at the state of the Celtics after losing Jeff Green for the season.

Where does this leave them?

"In a deep hole," says Bucher. "They tried to get David West, they already wanted to add some depth to their front line. And now you lose Jeff Green. They were expecting big things from him.

"This raises the question: Is there a rebuilding project? We expected them to get to that next season. Is this expedited now because Jeff Green is not going to be there? You look at the Eastern Conference, certainly Miami and Chicago are on top of them."
