This came out of left field when I was reading Kelly Dwyer's column this morning, which pretty much rips Danny Ainge for spending $36 million on Jeff Green.
And Jeff Green, fully vetted as a wing apparently, will be relied upon due to the potential half-year absence of Avery Bradley, who will be out until midseason while he recovers from significant shoulder woes.
Bradley is having his second shoulder operation today, but the reports that I've heard are that he'll be back by mid December. Now I know that the Celtics aren't always "accurate" with their estimated injury timetables (That was me being kind), but I'm hoping that Dwyer simply made a mistake here with the midseason talk.
If Bradley's injury will keep him out longer, then we can understand why Danny has been working so hard to pick up another shooting guard even after the Terry signing. It's important not to rush Bradley back, as we don't want these shoulder injuries to become a ch...

After watching Hall Of Famer Ray Allen bolt to the rival Miami Heat, Celtics fans are finding out that Avery Bradley will miss the first half of next season due to another shoulder surgery.
One offseason shoulder surgery for Celtics guard Avery Bradley appears to not be enough. It's going to take two to get him in shape for next year. Surgery on Bradley's right shoulder, scheduled for Tuesday, may keep him sidelined into the beginning of next season, Celtics director of player personnel Austin Ainge said Sunday, as reported by ESPN. Bradley has already had surgery...
A few pieces of paperwork remain, but just about everything else is in place for Jeff Green to return to Boston next year. Green agreed to a multiyear deal with the Celtics on Saturday, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. Green's agent, David Falk, said the contract will be official Wednesday, when teams are allowed to start officially signing players. "We'...

Despite evidence that O.J. Mayo’s development has stagnated or even begun working in the wrong direction, Danny Ainge seems to have set his sights on the free agent and will explore any avenue to acquire him.The Celtics are reportedly still interested in Mayo, even without much in the way of assets to deal for him or any cap space whatsoever with which to sign him outright. ...

Boston is foregoing the chance to rebuild and bringing the gang back together. However, I believe they are actually doing a little bit of both by signing two guys under 26 years old to 3-4 year deals as decent money to build...

This just doesn't look right.
Whether he left because of a deteriorating relationship with Rajon Rondo, losing his starting spot to Avery Bradley and/or being used as trade-bait by the Celtics, Ray Allen chose the Heat over the Celtics.
Allen has been really quiet about his decision so far so Celtics fans don't really know his reasons for leaving. One reason that probably...
So…it’s official. Danny Ainge and the boys started it. Kupchak, Kobe and the clan carried it for a couple years, and now we can thank “Riley’s kids” and the frantic, big-splash, free agent frenzy that’s taken place so far. It really looks like the tides are turning to what most basketball purists(a.k.a. old school) are dreading, a “pay for your championship” league...
Now that Ray Allen is out of the picture for the Celtics, they have turned their attention elsewhere.
The Herald reports that Doc has met with Rockets' free agent Courtney Lee. Originally, Lee was a restricted free agent with a $3.2 million qualifying offer, which Houston recently took back, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Lee is a good defender, averaging over...
For those secretly hoping Nenad Krstic would return to the Celtics, or that Danny Ainge would be able to move him for another asset – forget about it.
Nads enjoys playing hoops in Brooklyn South Beach Moscow. He just signed a three year contract with CSKA Moscow. Krstic was recently named to the All-Euroleague 1st team.
Due to the Keith Van Horn rule, Nads wasn’t eligible for...
