Jeffrey Lynn Green (born August 28, 1986) is an American professional basketball player with the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association. Green attended Georgetown University until following his junior year, when he entered the 2007 NBA Draft. He was selected fifth overall by the Boston Celtics, and was subsequently traded to the now defunct Seattle SuperSonics in a trade including Ray Allen. The SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma following his rookie year and became the Oklahoma City Thunder. On February 24, 2011, Green was traded along with Nenad Krstić and a future first round draft pick to the Boston Celtics for Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson.

Jeff Green was born in Cheverly, Maryland to Jeffrey Green Sr. and Felicia Akingube. He attended Northwestern High School in Hyattsville, Maryland, where he led the NHS Wildcats to the state basketball championship in 2004.

Green was recruited to Georgetown University by coach Craig Esherick in 2003. However, Esherick was fired before Green arrived on campus and John Thompson III was hired as the new coach. The two top recruits of Esherick's tenure, Green and center Roy Hibbert, would be the key components of Thompson's future success.
