Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his first phone call on Sunday, the official opening of free agency in the NBA, to Ray Allen. He said he does not think the call was in vain, despite a variety of reports that have the Celtics’ guard ticketed for Miami, Memphis or ABB (Anywhere But Boston.)
“It’s a stretch for me to see him go somewhere else,” Rivers said after completing a morning round of golf in the Boston area.
As for fellow Celtics free agent Jeff Green, Rivers said, “We’re going after Jeff. We’re going to get Jeff. I believe that, yes.”

When last season opened, every prediction involving the Celtics included an addendum: "if they can stay healthy."
