With big man Greg Oden set to return to the court, the Celtics have been listed as one of his potential landing spots. This from ESPN:
Greg Oden will likely choose from a group of suitors that includes the San Antonio Spurs,Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics and Memphis Grizzlies, a source close to Oden told ESPN.com.
A source close to Oden told ESPN's J.A. Adande that the Cavaliers and Spurs appear to be the best fits at this time.
Sure, Oden has had a less than stellar start to his career, playing in only 82 games due to numerous injuries after being drafted number one overall in 2007, but at 25, Oden still has plenty of time to prove that he was worth the pick.
A healthy Oden can be a real game changer with his rebounding and shot blocking ability and a team can never really have too many seven-footers.
With the Celtics limited financial flexibility for the upcoming season, the best Boston could probably offer is a minimum contract. That shouldn't be much ...
BEST OF MAXIM
When you think of the Boston Celtics you think winning, loyalty, and tradition. You think of the 17 championship banners that the franchise has raised to the rafters throughout it's storied 67 year history. You think of the 21 numbers that have been retired, forever immortalizing the legends that have donned the green and white. You think of guys like Bill Russell, Bob Cousy...
If Danny Ainge ever changes his mind about trading Rajon Rondo, it appears he has plenty of options.
The Pistons have reached out to Ainge and the Celtics about their interest in trading for the All-Star point guard if he were to become available, according to CBSSports.com.
Ainge has repeatedly shot down ideas of trading Rondo since he completed a trade last Thursday that sent franchise...

I remember July of 2007. It was an interesting, strange time for me as a basketball fan. I had been following Kevin Garnett's career in Minnesota for so long, that even though I had never once set foot in the state of Minnesota I thought of the Timberwolves as my team. I knew all of their history. I had spent hours on the various Timberwolves message boards. I had invested in...
No fan wants to see their favorite player (let alone a franchise type player) leave their team. It has happened before with Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon and Charles Barkley.
But it is the nature of the NBA business and no player is safe or un-tradable from a team.
Paul Pierce is one of those players that many thouht he'd retire in green and white. Yet the Celtics made roster...

Lots of money there. Still almost a 50% savings from Doc Rivers.
Should the Celtics tank the 2013-2014 season for a high draft pick?During an offseason in which he has traded away his two best players and his coach without receiving a single impact player in return, Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge adamantly proclaimed that the organization is not ‘tanking’, according to Baxter Holmes of The Boston Globe.“We...
In the past week, the Boston Celtics have experienced an overwhelming amount of changes. Doc Rivers was formally introduced as the Los Angeles Clippers head coach and Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Jason Terry were all traded to the Brooklyn Nets. It’s a lot to digest but when the deal to Brooklyn officially goes through [...]

College basketball fans have always wondered if Butler coach Brad Stevens would ever leave the Bulldogs for a “bigger” opportunity.
Today, that question was answered as he was officially hired as the next head coach of the Boston Celtics.
The team tweeted out the news this afternoon, along with a press release.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge certainly swung for the fences here. I’m just not sure he didn’t swing and miss. In a very interesting move, the Boston Celtics have hired Brad Stevens away from Butler University as their new head coach, […]
This one was surprising. Mainly because I thought Stevens always gave off the impression that he was intent on building Butler into a powerhouse. But some jobs you just can’t pass up. The @Celtics have hired Brad Stevens as their next head coach.
