Found August 24, 2012 on HoopStuff:
 Added: Jason Terry (FA), Jeff Green (FA), Courtney Lee (Trade), Jason Collins (FA) Lost: Ray Allen, Greg Stiemsma, JuJuan Johnson, E’Twaun Moore, Sean Williams, Ryan Hollins Draft: Jarred Sullinger (Round 1 Pick 21), Fab Melo (Round 1 Pick 22), Kris Joseph (Round 2 Pick 49) Free Agency Analysis: The biggest move that the team made was resigning star center and future Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett, who looked five years younger during the Celtics playoff, run and whether he can keep up that pace or not, he is still a valuable two way player and the emotional leader of the team. The biggest headline involved Ray Allen leaving the team to play for the rival Heat. Allen seemed to be hurt by trade rumors over the last two years and famously took millions less to play for the Miami Heat.

How good will Jeff Green be?

Mr. Jeff Green just signed a pretty nice contract, reportedly four years for around $36 million. That's a lot of money, especially for someone who will be the seventh man (sixth man, that's Jason Terry's job). Still, you'd expect that Green is going to get some significant playing time relieving both Paul Piece and Brandon Bass next season and beyond. Why else...

The Power of a Near Death Experience

Sometimes there are factors that can affect a player's game in a positive way. One of those factors is a near death experience. There is something about facing your own mortality that forces a person to re-evaluate their life and give them a new lease on life.
