Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images According to a report from Matty Mackay of CelticsLife.com, the Boston Celtics have a new coach in the fold. Ron Adams, a former lead assistant of the Chicago Bulls will join Brad Stevens as the new head coach assembles his staff. Adams’ departure from the “Windy City” was rather unceremonious according to multiple reports as Gar Forman, the general manager of the Chicago Bulls let Adams go without the consent of head coach Tom Thibodeau creating fraction in the front office. Adams had many teams interested in him. The Indiana Pacers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Brooklyn Nets, San Antonio Spurs, and the Los Angeles Clippers were all clamoring for his services. New Clippers head coach Doc Rivers wanted Adams to solidify his staff, but ultimately Adams wanted to call the TD Garden home. Serving under Scott Skiles in a previous stint with Chicago, Adams served the role of lead assistant coach. He then moved on to Oklahoma City where he served under head coach Scott Brooks before returning to Chicago in 2010. Having Adams, a veteran coach with a great NBA mind on the staff of a younger coach like Stevens is a great mix. The youthful energy…

In what might have been the least enthusiastic press conference ever, the Celtics introduced Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks, and Kris Humphries. Gerald Wallace was mercifully spared appearing at the press conference due to his youth basketball camp. Also missing was Kris Joseph and it was announced not long after the press conference ended that Joseph had once again been waived....
Paul Pierce said goodbye to the city of Boston and the Celtics with 44 photos on Instagram of himself and the team throughout the years of his career. “I cannot say it enough. Boston, you’ll always be a part of who I am.#THANKYOUBOSTON,”
Well that was quick. Per the Celtics.
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have waived forward Kris Joseph.
Joseph, a 6'7" forward, was originally drafted by the Celtics with the 51st overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. He appeared in 10 games split between Boston and Brooklyn and totaled 11 points and nine rebounds over 54 minutes. Joseph also appeared in 27...
The Boston Celtics officially introduced Keith Bogans, Kris Humphries and MarShon Broooks on Monday, the newest additions in their complete overhaul since trading Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets last week.
The event did not attract much fan fare. And this is the photo the Celtics' official Instagram account decided to put out:

WALTHAM, Mass. — Kris Humphries doesn’t get it, but he gets it. He knows his relationship with Rajon Rondo is a source of amusement after their physical altercation spilled into the stands during a game in November. At the same time, he knows better than to call their run-in a “fight.”
Humphries is from Minnesota, after all, a region that shares some of New England’s passion...
From Yahoo! Sports Marc Spears.
Brazilian center Victor Faverani has agreed in principle to sign a three-year deal with the Celtics, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

Spears calls him Victor, but it's actually VITOR. We profiled Faverani here a while back when his link to the Celtics was first discussed. He's 6'11"...

Great video just came my way of a little kid in Houston responding to Shaquille O’Neal’s diss of Houston. The local ABC affiliate has footage of a VERY VERY animated kid. The kid was upset at Shaq for calling Houston a “little town”, comments which he did back track on later. The child made sure Shaq knows “Don’t ever disrespect Houston again”. I’m pretty sure...
On Monday the Boston Celtics introduced new players Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks and Kris Humphries. None of the three guys looked happy to be there.
Standing holding their jerseys next to new head coach Brad Stevens and general manager Danny Ainge, the three men looked like they were about to face a firing squad. All three were acquired in the trade that sent Kevin Garnett, Jason...
Earlier this afternoon Danny Ainge, Brad Stevens, and the Boston Celtics introduced a few of the players they acquired in the deal that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets. Due to his involvement in a basketball camp back in his home state of Alabama, Gerald Wallace was unable to attend today's presser. However, Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks, and Kris Humphries...
As previously reported, the Rajon Rondo trade rumors are going nowhere.
According to Jay King at Masslive.com, the Pistons have asked about Rondo's availability.
The Pistons are said to have plenty of interest in acquiring Rondo, and Dumars admitted he spoke to Boston about its All-Star point guard's availability. But according to the Detroit Free Press, talks never progressed...
The post Who’s Excited For The Boston Celtics Next Season? appeared first on Ride The Pine.
Kris Humphries has been around the NBA long enough to understand how the business of the league works. So, when Humphries sat down with Nets general manager Billy King after the Nets saw their season end at the hands of the Bulls in the first round of the playoffs, he knew there was a good chance he’d be playing elsewhere next season.
“I wasn’t surprised,” Humphries said...
The Boston Celtics acquired a $10.3 million trade exception in their trade of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets.
The Celtics will have 365 days to use to the traded player exception.
When you enter Celtics games at the TD Garden they hand you a free mini "program" with stats and information about the team. In my years as a season ticket holder I've always paid attention the section which lists each player's date of birth, comparing their ages to my own. Paul Pierce was born six months after me in October of 1977, so he's been my constant...
