CSNNE You can now officially add Brandon Bass to the list of free agent targets for the Celtics. While there has been considerable speculation as to what Bass will do this summer, his agent tells CSNNE.com that the 6-foot-8 forward plans to not opt-in to the final year of his contract, and thus test the free agent waters. However, all indications are that Bass is hoping to return to the Celtics with a multi-year deal. "Oh absolutely," his agent Tony Dutt said when asked if Boston was his client's first choice. "Without question, he would love to go back." Brandon Bass was great during the regular season, but basically disappeared in the playoffs. We'll see.

Kevin Garnett is pondering retirement and his decision figures to be the first domino to fall.

Video: Boston Celtics thank their fans

The Boston Celtics released this video yesterday, thanking their fans for sticking with them throughout the season. I love and hate these videos. I love them because they're usually very thoughtful, yet cheery at the same time. I hate them because it means the season's over, basketball is still being played and none of the teams currently playing are named the Boston...

Perkins joins the growing chorus: Garnett considering retirement, won’t play for anyone but Doc Rivers

Allen's Celtics future uncertain... because of Rondo?

The Celtics future is very much in flux. Everyone sort of realized that after their Eastern Conference Finals loss to the Heat and the fact that two of the three of the celebrated Big Three of 2008 are free agents.
