CELTICS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Danny Ainge says trading Rajon Rondo "is not out of the question"

After the report surfaced late last month that Rajon Rondo "wants out" of Boston, fans and pundits alike were left scratching their heads wondering if the relationship between the All-Star point guard and the Celtic front office was as tight as they make it out to be publicly.Well this latest bit of news certainly isn't going to put out that fire.Ainge also said about...

Offseason Recap: The Marathon Approach

The 2014 offseason gave Celtic fans plenty of hope that a rebuild could be achieved in a short time-frame. Big name players visiting Boston (see Kevin Love), the thought of a legitimate 7-foot centre joining the ranks by sliding in the draft (see Joel Embiid), and an arsenal of trade chips at Danny Ainge’s disposal all created optimism that the C’s were only a couple of great...

Boston Celtics: What Is The Core Of The Celtics?

Boston Celtics: What is the Core of the Celtics? By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… The Celtics are the most asset rich team in the NBA. With a ridiculously young team of talented 1st round picks, their own draft picks, picks owed to them and 1 elite trade chip in Rajon Rondo it’s incredibly difficult to say which players are franchise cornerstones and which are...

Evan Turner to wear #11 for Boston?

I’m not exactly sure where this picture was taken or when, but guessing it’s for some sort of ad/promotion. But it clearly shows Evan Turner wearing a Celtics uniform, the jersey emblazoned with #11. It appears to be taken in a high school gym somewhere. Seems odd to me that Turner could rock the C’s official uni without being signed yet, but it definitely does not appear Photoshopped...

Though some stuck around to train, a majority of the Boston Celtics spent their summer scattered across the country, taking their own approaches to offseason conditioning. Jeff Green was one of those who left New England, and he’s excited to see the improvements his teammates made when training camp opens later this month. “I think we ended the season well, on a good note,...

Could Brandon Bass be on his way out?

Photo/ Kim Klement/USA TODAY Sports It’s no secret that Boston Celtics forward Brandon Bass has been the subject of trade rumors over the past year. And it comes as no surprise: Bass is a work horse power forward who gels with any unit he plays on and rebounds, defends, and shoots well. Plus, his cap-friendly $6.9 million expiring contract is a valuable asset for a team looking...

Sports Illustrated ranks Rajon Rondo 40th best NBA player; 13th best point guard?

This week Sports Illustrated is ranking the top 100 players in the NBA, with Rajon Rondo checking in at No. 40.  And unless Avery Bradley, Jeff Green or Jared Sullinger magically cracks the top 20 (which haven't been released yet), Rondo will be the only Celtics player on the list.  Here's some of SI's less than glowing critique of Rondo's game:We know how good...

Video: Tyler Zeller talks playing center for the Celtics and working out with Rajon Rondo

And then of course there's Vitor. Right now I'd say Zeller has the edge due to being a 7 footer, but we haven't even started camp yet, so lots of things can change. Working...
