The Boston Celtics have made a qualifying offer for roughly $1 mil. to Greg Stiemsma. This ensures that come July 1st (this Sunday) the Celtics will have the opportunity to match any offers made to the Big Stiemer. Stiemsma has the option to sign the offer, or try and hammer out a longer deal with Danny Ainge and Boston. The Celts will have 3 days to match any offer other NBA teams throw at Stiemsma. Despite being hampered by a foot injury in the latter part of the season, Greg Stiemsma played very well for Boston last year-specifically on defense. He blocked 85 shots in 55 games for the green during the 2011-12 season.

Boston will select Kris Joseph with the 51st pick, league source tells Y! Sports.7 minutes ago via webReplyRetweetFavorite@WojYahooNBAAdrian WojnarowskiLong, productive, good in transition, solid spot-up shooter. Don’t expect him to become an NBA All-Star any time soon, but the Celtics could have done a lot worse than Kris Joseph with the No. 51 pick.Plenty more to come in the morning.
I absolutely love Jared Sullinger at the 21st pick, back problems be damned — almost as much as I loathe Fab “El Busto” Melo. I emailed a group of friends earlier this morning to say that if Melo becomes a productive pro, I’ll tattoo a profile of Kobe Bryant’s face on my chest and write a love letter to Rick Pitino.But Sullinger? He would have been a top 5 selection last...
Danny Ainge owns a reputation as a crass-maneuvering son of a ***** who’s more difficult to deal with than a double-breaking putt at Augusta. But he also has a more sensitive side, which could help Jeff Green sign with the Boston Celtics for a slight hometown discount.Green’s agent, David Falk, called Boston “a great environment” for Green and said he has a great relationship...

What made the Boston Celtics great in 2012 is that when they entered the post-season they knew exactly what they were as a basketball team. They were a primarily jump-shooting team that played their asses off on the defensive side of the court and were at their best when Rajon Rondo was...
Boston is aggressively working to move up into the late lottery, if not higher, league sources tell Y!. Celtics own No. 21 and 22 picks.

I wonder who Danny is after. He has one more trade chip to play with after being given the Bobcats 2013 2nd round pick due to the OKC Thunder not disclosing Green's heart issues. "Late...

Literally didn’t take sixty minutes from the time I posted Jared Sullinger’s grade of a “B” for the Celtics to announce that Sullinger might require surgery.
I want a trade-back Oklahoma City and I want it now.
