Young Celtics Challenging Themselves With Offseason Training Regimen (Video)

There is no offseason for a young NBA player fighting for a job. The Boston Celtics are stacked with players on non-guaranteed or rookie contracts, meaning all of them are expendable, and all of them realize it. That is why a group of them have been at the team’s training facility throughout the summer, not only working on their skills but also their strength, reflexes and flexibility...

The Celtics have 18 players, who will make the cut?

Danny does know that you can only have 15 players, right? Of course he knows, but what's he doing with the Celtics roster? He's not setting off fireworks as projected. The minor moves have been questionable, and the plan hasn't been clear this summer. The Celtics have 18 players currently on the roster, with 3 players likely to be cut at camp, if not before camp in late...

Celtics take flyer on former #2 overall pick Evan Turner

Celtics finishing deal for FA Evan Turner, sources tell Herald. He will get a portion of their mid-level exception. — Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) July 21, 2014 Well, I’ll be damned. A week ago when Jeff Goodman first reported the Celtics interest in Turner, I didn’t think there was room on the roster for another wing. While we await specifics on Turner’s salary, we know the...

What does the future hold for Phil Pressey, Chris Johnson, and Chris Babb? Brad Stevens isn't sure

After the Boston Celtics acquired Marcus Thornton and Tyler Zeller yesterday in a trade that allowed Cleveland to clear cap space for LeBron James, the C's roster has become considerably more crowded. Add in that they officially signed draftees James Young and Marcus Smart last night, and Avery Bradley's deal will become official shortly, which means the Celtics will have...

Report: Marcus Thornton’s Contract Could Force Celtics To Make Cuts

With Marcus Thornton and Tyler Zeller reportedly on their way to Boston, the Celtics could be forced to make more corresponding moves for financial reasons. Thornton and Zeller, whom Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge netted as part of a three-team trade, are due to make roughly $10.3 million combined next season. That would put the Celtics above the $63.2 million...

Free agency just started -- a breakdown of how much cap room the Celtics have

Tick tock, tick tock.NBA free agency began at midnight, opening the floodgates on what should be an insane few weeks. It looks as though LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are ready to return to the Heat at slight discounts, allowing Pat Riley to add some talent around them. But we have no idea just how much cap space they'll have, nor who they'll target. Carmelo Anthony...

Love 'em or leave 'em: Which of the Celtics current players will be back next year?

Simple concept: The Celtics finished last season with 15 players on their roster, today we're going to vote on who will be back, and who won't be.

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. While most players on non-playoff teams like the Celtics (25-57 this past season) catch the first flight out of town to some exotic destination only to return to Boston sometime near the end of the summer, a handful...

Stevens said the Celtics didn't get a clean look in the end, do you agree?

The last play of the game wasn't shocking to me. It's happened before, and it happens often. As great as Rondo is, he has a flaw, and it's an issue that former Celtic greats point out. It's also obvious to many Celtics fans. Rondo's over dribbling of the basketball can hurt the Celtics, more often then not. Rondo was a +24 during Monday's game against Philly...

PHILADELPHIA — Jeff Green, Kelly Olynyk, Avery Bradley and Chris Johnson were very good late. They were just a little bit too late.

Record: 23-55Here we are again talking about another loss. And again, what makes me mad is not the fact that we lost, but the way we lost: we started the game pretty slowly, with Atlanta taking a 9 point lead right away out of the gates. In spite of this, we’ve been able to get back on our feet and surely but slowly we became our comeback, to explode in the third quarter with a...
