The Boston Celtics have bigger fish to fry than Raja Bell right now. But the free agent wouldn’t mind playing his home games at the TD Garden next season. (Salt Lake Tribune)Bell’s already drawn interest from several clubs since free agency began July 1, and he acknowledged teams such as Miami, Boston and the Los Angeles Lakers are interesting to him. He would not specify which organizations have recently shown interest, though, since his buyout had previously not been made public and he wants to respect the Jazz’s role in the process.Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday that Bell has interest in returning to his hometown Heat, while the Lakers are a legitimate possibility.The bi-annual exception might work for Bell, 35, who averaged 6.4 points last season for the Utah Jazz while shooting 46.6 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from the 3-point arc. (Note: Since the Celtics badly need a backup center, their bi-annual exception might have to be used in that way.) ...

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.
With baseball at the All Star break, basketball and hockey in our rear view mirrors, and football around the corner, we find ourselves firmly cemented in the middle of professional sports purgatory. Luckily, for rabid sports fans like myself, the Olympics will soon be coming to the rescue. The one in event I’m particularly looking [...]
We have our first “upset” of this year’s Madness. Former Celtic (have to get used to saying that) Ray Allen’s AJ XIII away p.e.’s were crushed by Rondo’s Huaraches. Now obviously I know much of Rondo’s votes may have come after Ray decided to jet for Miami, but the fans have spoken. Rondo’s Nike Huarache bball 2012 received 63% of your votes to move on to the next...
I completely understand why Ray Allen chose to sign with the Miami Heat.
He gets to go to a team that will contend for a championship every year for the rest of his career, his game is made easier for his aging legs as he’ll likely have many more open, spot-up jumpers with the Heat, and not running through multiple screens to get open. He’s going to Miami, where he can play golf...
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...
Raja Bell is finalizing a buyout with the Jazz.
While Jason Terry will help fill the void left by Ray Allen, the Celtics could still look to add some backcourt depth. O.J. Mayo is one name that's been tossed around throughout the offseason, and the Celtics apparently aren't closing the book on acquiring the free-agent guard. The C's are still interested in acquiring Mayo, according to CSNNE.com, but they may have to...
Editor’s note: This post is from Jordan Higgs. He is likely to be one of Celtics Town’s initial crop of interns, who are plotting to take over the world one blog post at a time. Due to other obligations I still haven’t watched the entire game. But from what I’ve watched (the second half), well, JARED MOTHER-F%$&ING SULLINGER!!!!! If you also want to apply for an intern...
The Celtics defeated the Thunder by a final score of 73-65 in the Orlando Summer League.
The Boston Celtics have become a serious suitor for free-agent guard Courtney Lee. Doc Rivers met with Lee Saturday night. After the departure of sharpshooter Ray Allen, sources say Boston has made it a priority to find a possible replacement. Lee averaged 11.4 points per game for the Houston Rockets last season and hit 40 [...]
Every once in a while, Twitter reveals some interesting things. Usually, the social media network only reveals what Chad Johnson had for lunch, how many tummy crunches Brooke Burke Charvet did this morning or that Ashton Kutcher is still a dope. Occasionally -- such as when Mike Wallace's death prompted dismay from Pittsburgh Steelers fans mistaking the television journalist...
