Remember earlier this year when the Boston Celtics and Sacramento Kings were discussing a potential deal that would have sent Demarcus Cousins to Beantown? Well what if I told you that there could be a way to actually acquire the disgruntled big man? Before I go any further, let me clarify that there isn't a single rumor going around that the two franchise's are starting anew with their negotiations. This is simply a "what if" scenario that I came up with on my own using the ESPN Trade Machine. It just so happens that it works and not only does it work but it works in both team's favor. Now that you've read the "disclaimer," let's begin. In order for this to work, the Celtics would have to send Kris Humphries and draft considerations to Sacramento in exchange for Demarcus Cousins, Jimmer Fredette, and Isaiah Thomas. Now what those draft considerations may be, I'm not sure. However, realistically I would say that it would take any one...

Randolph's play in Boston should keep him in the NBA
CSNNE's Jessica Camerato spoke with Shavlik Randolph yesterday evening, and here's what he had to say about his future and time with Boston:
"I don't know if there's enough room on the paper for what to say to the fans. I'm just extremely, to the highest level, thankful for their support. I don'...
Whether you wanted to admit it or not, the summer of 2013 was almost guaranteed to be a busy one for the Boston Celtics. The team was coming off of a first round playoff exit they suffered at the hands of the New York Knicks and, judging by the emotional exchange that took place between Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett as the final minute or two of Game 6 ticked off the clock, it was...
An absolutely sick pair of Rajon Rondo Nike Hyperposites recently surfaced on EBay. These Nike basketball shoes, which blend a sleek hoops shoe with a high-tech foamposite, were made specially for #9. Unfortunately, due to last year’s injury, he never got to rock them. They sold on EBay for just under $1000.
Rondo wore the Hyperposites last year, most notably a sweet mint green...
The deed is done. According to ESPN Insider, Jeff Goodman, the Celtics have informed Shavlik Randolph that they will not be picking up his team option for the 2013-14 season. Although I'm surprised it took until nearly 6:00 this evening, Boston's waiving of Randolph shouldn't come as a shock. Had the Celtics picked up the big man's $1.1 million option they would...
This offseason for the Boston Celtics has been quite eventful, but it did leave many questions for the organization. Some of the biggest questions coming from the fans are these: 1. Who is the late game closer? 2. Who will bring the intensity on deffense? 3. Who will be able to get a much needed bucket? The list could surpass those few questions by a mile, but there is one question...
It's the middle of summer, and to be honest..the Celtics hot stove has cooled quite a bit. Pierce, KG and Doc are long gone, the draft seems like ages ago, and the Celtics had their quietest free agency period in years. It has basically become a waiting game. Waiting to see if the team makes a salary cap cutting deal prior to training camp. Waiting to see if Rajon Rondo is healthy...
Can you hear the dust balls rolling?
Not here at CelticsLife! Not when there's plenty of time to talk about the issues we all want to really address. Like, why was Bonzi Wells at the son of Bill Dinwiddie's (I mean Rashid Shabazz!) house trying to kill him? Or was he even there? Will the Celtics bring back Shavlik Randolph? Should they? Also, what's your favorite Game...
Sacramento Kings: What 5 Probable King Starters Must Work On
By Mike Elworth
PG: Greivis Vasquez- Scoring Efficiency
- There is no doubting that Vasquez is one of the best passers and distributors in the NBA, as he was third in the NBA last year in assists, with 9 per game. However, despite averaging 14 points per game last season, he needs to become a more efficient scorer. He shot...
The Boston Celtics have released Shavlik Randolph before his contract was set to become guaranteed the power forward told ESPN's Jeff Goodman.
Randolph's $1.1 million salary would have been guaranteed if the Celtics did not waive him by the end of the day Thursday.
The Celtics' roster now stands at the regular-season limit of 15 players all of whom have guaranteed...
Photo courtesy of Dime Magazine BOSTON-- This particular thing has been on my mind lately, so here goes nothing. The Boston Celtics have undergone huge changes this offseason from losing their captain and a “Big Ticket via trade to hiring a new coach that made his mark in the game as one of the brightest young minds in college basketball. When you take two perennial All-Stars...
Not everyone is gone from the Celtics. Check out this new mix by CelticD to get you pumped over who's still here.

As I contemplate the Green silence (and if you think the
Celtics’ traffic drops off, the rest of the league is a wasteland), it occurs
to me that the NFL fans are digesting reports of OTA’s (offseason team
activities I believe) in the months leading up to their training camps. Which beggars the question, why no OTA’s for
Well for one thing, I think they are...
Now that the dust has settled on the remembrance of the late, great Reggie Lewis, one question still remains: did Red Auerbach really hold onto his Big Three too long?
It's been a long held belief that Red should have traded Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish while they still had some value to help the Celtics rebuild for their next championship run. The logic seems...
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.
We all know the primary issue: Can a college coach jump into the 2013 NBA without any kind of NBA experience? Brad Stevens has none whatsoever. He did not play in the league. He has not been an assistant coach...
