Jae Crowder officially signs with Boston Celtics, says knee is '100 percent'

Jae Crowder had a wonderful run with the Boston Celtics last season. The 25-year-old wing spaced the floor, defended multiple positions and took on a leadership role sorely needed by such a young roster. Boston recognizes how crucial Crowder was to last year's success, and it motivated them to agree on a five-year, $35 million contract with the restricted free agent. The deal became...

The Celtics have cap space until Monday, could they use that to land Kenneth Faried?

David Lee is not a Celtic. Jae Crowder is not a Celtic. Terry Rozier and RJ Hunter are kind of Celtics, but not yet officially signed. Of course, this will all change soon. Very soon actually, with a report that Hunter will be signed by early next week, and the Lee trade becoming official on Monday. The Celtics have gone so far as to call a press conference to announce "off-season...

Jae Crowder has not yet forgiven J.R. Smith

Don’t expect any hugs when Jae Crowder and J.R. Smith first line up opposite one another next season. Smith’s backhanded slap prematurely ended Crowder’s 2014-15 campaign in the opening round of the NBA playoffs, and while the Boston Celtics forward avoided serious injury on the play, it’s clear he hasn’t fully forgiven the perpetrator. “I don’t intend to call him...
