Much of the Celtics' rebuilding plan -- should they decide to rebuild at all -- rests on whether Jeff Green will be back in a Celtics uniform. Green was expected to bolster Boston's bench until an aortic aneurysm discovered shortly before the season wiped out his entire 2011-12 campaign. His health issue turned out to be only the first domino to fall, as Jermaine O'Neal, Chris Wilcox and Avery Bradley all ended up sidelined at the end of the season for various reasons. In a goodwill gesture, the Celtics withdrew their qualifying offer to Green in December. Instead of the...

Celtics may package 21st & 22nd picks to move up in NBA draft

According to a recent report from NBA insider Alex Kennedy, the Boston Celtics might try and package their two first round draft picks to trade up for a higher pick. From The Celtics hold the twenty-first and twenty-second picks in the first round. However, league sources believe Boston will package the picks together to move up in the draft or trade away one of...

Jeff Green's Return to Celtics Not a Certainty, As Other Teams Showing Interest, According to Agent

When the Celtics traded for Jeff Green, they were operating under the assumption that he'd become a big part of their future plans. He still might, but it may take some work to keep him in Boston. Green, who missed all of this season due to a serious heart condition, is on the comeback trail and will be available to any team when the NBA free agency period starts on July 1. While...

Ray Allen Remains in Limbo Until Market for His Services Is Set, Celtics Set Free Agent Plan

Ray Allen played more seasons in Milwaukee and as many seasons in Seattle as the five years he has spent in Boston, but by now the team he is most strongly associated with is the Celtics. Part of that has to do with winning a championship with the organization, but the way he embraced the franchise's history played a factor as well. Whether Allen remains in a Celtics uniform...

Your Morning Dump… where Perk thinks KG’s coming back to Boston

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “I feel like if he does return to basketball, I think that that would be the team,’’ Perkins said of the Celtics. “I heard Kevin say a few times that he wouldn’t want to play for anybody but Doc, so...

Many options lie ahead for Celtics in draft

With the NBA draft fast approaching (and the Celtics offseason starting earlier than most of us had expected/hoped for) it is time to take a look ahead at the offseason. This offseason figures to be one of the more interesting in recent memory, given the plethora of options available to the Celtics; the biggest of which being the decision to rebuild or to make one more push with...

26 Years Ago Today

The sting never wears off.  The blow never lessens.  26 years ago today, the fate of our beloved Boston Celtics changed in an instant when Len Bias passed away.  Is it selfish of me to still have visions of Parish taking a baseline fall away that bounces high off the top of the rim only to be flushed down by a streaking Len Bias?  Or Larry Bird throwing an alley-oop from just...

Rajon Rondo Shows Off His New Boston Digs On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Ok, so you only get to see a very little bit of Rajon Rondo’s new house in Boston. But in a surprise appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night during Kimmel’s pre-NBA Finals show prior to game 4 between the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder, Rondo seemed to open up a bit, something [...]

Video: Rajon Rondo actually smiling and having fun on Kimmel

For those of you used to Rajon Rondo being stone faced, short with the media (or sometimes flat out angry), this is a nice little change of pace.  Rajon joined Knicks center Tyson Chandler via Skype on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night for a game of Skype Scavenger Hunt. I know WEEI’s Ben Rohrbach calls this classic Rondoism, but you tell me how often you see Rondo laugh this...

Celtics' Reported Targeting of Omer Asik Could Impact Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett spent the second half of this season reminding everyone who asked that he does not like being a center. He fancies himself a forward, and no amount of praise for his play at the pivot is likely to change his opinion soon. The good news for Garnett is, he does not have to be a center anymore if he does not want to. The unrestricted free agent is believed to want to return...

Celtics considering strong offer for Bulls center

IAMGM: According to Sam Smith from The Celtics are one the teams said to be considering a strong offer to Bulls center Omer Asik. The thinking is it might help them retain Kevin Garnett, who though playing very well at center the second half of the season doesn’t want to return as a center. Asik would definitely be a great add, but I'd prefer him coming off of the...

Flip Saunders is Confident In Kevin Garnett’s Return To The Celtics

Flip Saunders knows Kevin Garnett almost as well as anybody in NBA circles. Saunders coached Garnett for a while back in KG’s Minnesota Timberwolves’ days. One would tend to believe then that when it comes to KG, anything that Saunders has to say about the future of the 14- time All-Star Forward/Center has got to [...]

Metta World Peace claims Lakers would be in finals if he hadn't been suspended

This isn't directly related to the Celtics, but the basketball player currently known as Metta World Peace and formerly known as Ron Artest has recently been active on Twitter saying ridiculous things about James Harden and the Thunder. But his most recent delusional statement is that the Lakers would still be playing had he not had to serve a 7 game suspension for elbowing...
