Jae Crowder did take a bit of time to see if the grass was greener elsewhere, but he didn’t take long to decide to stick with the capital “G” Green.

According to league sources, Dallas and New York were the other main suitors for the 6-foot-7 winger, but after finally finding a team that was willing to play to his strengths, he wasn’t about to leave the Celtics.

The restricted free agent’s return was secured with a five-year, $35 million deal.
