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 the current core. Many of us assume that the Celtics will look to make a youth movement and rebuild on the fly around a core of Rondo, Bradley, and the other young guns.
If that is indeed the approach, this years draft figures to be one of the most important for the Celtics. Holding the 21st and 22nd picks in the draft, the Celtics have plenty of options as to what they can do with those picks, so lets take a look at the options available to Boston and who we may see in green for 2012/13.
Keep the picks:
If the Celtics choose to keep both picks they have plenty of options at 21 and 22. This years draft is wi...

Jeff Green’s agent, David Falk, says his client is “100 percent,” fielding interest from 12-14 teams, and the second-best unrestricted free agent on the market. He said Green would return from heart surgery “better than ever” and isn’t committed to re-signing with the Boston Celtics, though they currently rest atop his list.I’ve never met Falk personally, but I imagine...
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.
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...
Celtics stopper Avery Bradley had a break out season with the Celtics this past season. He is spending his hard earned money this off-season on some of the worlds priciest kicks. Over the past two weeks Bradley has posted pictures of his latest cops on Instagram. This list includes the Nike Air Yeezy 2, Air Jordan 12 Retro Obsidian/White, and a $1,295 pair of gold Chistian...
“Of course,” he told CSNNE.com. “I would love to be here next season.”
“I know the type of players that Paul and Kevin and Ray (Allen) and (Rajon) Rondo are and how they want to win,” said Hollins. “Going against those guys on the other side, I’d always felt like I was a fit for this team and the way that Doc (Rivers) coaches and the way that players play over...
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...
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...
Kevin Garnett is reportedly waiting to see what direction the Celtics are going in before he signs on for another year or two with the club. The Celtics, meanwhile, are apparently waiting to see what direction Garnett wants to go in before they commit to a set plan for next season's roster. At some point, someone will have to act, but until then Celtics fans must deal with the...
When news broke on Monday that Ohio State power forward Jared Sullinger had been medically red-flagged with a back issue, you could pretty much hear the footsteps of numerous NBA executives running away from drafting him. At the same time, you could only imagine the smiles of other team execs sitting outside of the lottery hoping that the All-American falls to them. According...
With the Boston Celtics looking to add size and improve their rebounding this offseason, Sam Smith of Bulls.com is reporting that the C's are going to strongly pursue Chicago's backup center, Omer Asik.
The Celtics are one the teams said to be considering a strong offer to Bulls center Asik. The thinking is it might help them retain Kevin Garnett, who though playing...
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...
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...
According to Sam Smith from Bulls.com:
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, who coached Kevin Garnett in Minnesota from 1995-2005, is pretty confident that KG will be back in Celtics green next season.
Saunders worked as a consultant for Doc Rivers and the Celtics this postseason and told the Minneapolis StarTribune this weekend that he was ‘positive’ that Garnett would return to Boston for the 2012-2013 season.
