Sullinger said he has heard several times that his role model should be Minnesota All-Star Kevin Love, who entered the league a pudgy post player but has developed his body as well as his outside shot. Sullinger wants to play in the summer league but will have a conversation with president of basketball operations Danny Ainge about whether the team wants him to participate. He at least will be part of the summer league practice team, as he was last season following surgery. “Even if they tell me I’m not playing summer league, I’ll go down there and practice,” said Sullinger, who posted his 21st double-double of the season with 22 point...

After a dispiriting 111-102 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers that marked a new low point in the Boston Celtics’ season, the team’s captain and coach, respectively, demonstrated an outward calm while clearly simmering underneath. That much was clear after Stevens...

Celtics Fans Have Not Turned Backs On Team, Despite Rebuilding Pains
