Things are moving very s-l-o-w-l-y on Courtney Lee, Jason Terry front

Alex Kennedy of Hoops World has an update – if you want to call it that: The Houston Rockets rescinded their qualifying offer to Lee last week, but the shooting guard may still return to the Rockets. The two sides have been in contact and Houston is interested in re-signing Lee once the dust settles. Right now, the Rockets’ top priority is finding a way to acquire Dwight Howard...

Heading into Vegas, a pair of jokers mar a wild offseason

The second week of summer basketball has begun.  We’ve seen NBA veterans trying to stick around.  We’ve seen rookies trying to prove their worth.  We’ve seen an NBA offseason that is, officially, less than a week old but has still given us a mountain of stories. It’s been an amazing off-season.  But as we head into the Las Vegas portion of the summer, a pair of jokers...

Your Morning Dump… Where Chris Wilcox nearly killed himself watching the C’s

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.  “My wife kept telling me, ‘You need to calm down, you need to calm down.’ Because I’m in front of the TV every night watching the game, you know?” explained Wilcox with a smile, knowing he undoubtedly...

Report: Ray Allen can opt-out after one year

This juicy tidbit comes to us from the Miami Herald: Heat fans should appreciate Ray Allen next season, because there’s no assurance he will be here beyond that. Two sources with direct knowledge tell us that Allen’s two-year deal with the Heat includes a $3.2 million player option for 2013-14. So if Allen wants to become a free agent again next July, he can. So can Rashard...

KG sighting

Here are some photos of the Big Ticket & wife Brandi that I came across this evening. The photos were taken outside Mr. Chow’s restaurant in Beverly Hills. The other gentleman in the pics is James Pallotta-an executive committee member of C’s ownership. Pallotta you may recall was fined $100G in ’07 for confronting David Stern about bad officiating after Game 3 of the Finals...

Report: Chris Wilcox to re-sign for veteran minimum

Via the Boston Herald: The Celtics have solved at least part of their frontcourt problem by turning to a familiar player. A team source confirmed today that Chris Wilcox, who had surgery to correct an enlarged aorta last February, has agreed to what is believed to be a veteran’s minimum contract. Wilcox, who was cleared for full contact and basketball activity just over a week...

A sign-and-trade for Terry is a brilliantly simple cap move for Boston

I’ve been able to learn a lot about the new salary cap structure recently.  I’ve picked up a few of the nuances, but not all of them.  Sometimes in the pursuit of being creative within the system, I overlook a simple solution to a problem that can dramatically change the Celtics’ offseason.  This is one such solution:  A sign-and-trade for Jason Terry. In regard to outgoing...

as Celtics dominate final Orlando Game

Summer league part one is over for the Celtics, and the story of this game is Dionte Christmas. He dominated the first half of this game as the Celtics built a huge lead… waxing the Orlando Magic by 21.  Christmas, who will not be playing for the Celtics in Las Vegas, wowed us with an array of jumpers and drives dropping 21 points on 7-14 shooting (3-7 3pt). E’Twaun Moore bounced...

Scout: Jared Sullinger would start for some teams

Jared Sullinger has been a Celtic for exactly two weeks and he’s played in four summer league games.  It was our first chance to look at Sullinger as a pro and evaluate him against other pro (or borderline pro) talent.  And what we’ve seen is impressive.  He can play with his back to the basket pretty well.  He attacks the glass.  He gets to the line.  He can hit mid-range...

Jonathan Gibson’s Yellow Kicks

Jonathan GIbson is definitely trying to get noticed.  Gibson’s game has been a pleasant surprise, but the real shocker is his choice in footwear.  Gibson took to the summer league courts in a yellow, blue, and red pair of the Nike Hyperdunk 2011.  The shoes stood out so much that broadcaster Rick Kamla  commented on them in the middle of the game.

This is only summer league This is only summer league This is only summer league I’m trying to remind myself of something that I know all too well.  This is only summer league, and every summer league has a “breakout” player that never makes it in the league.  But I can’t help but enjoy what I’m seeing out of Kris Joseph.

Benedict Allen

  With the chance to digest the Ray Allen to Miami deal over the last few days, and the reluctance to post a spur of the moment instant reaction article (partially thanks to a crashed Hard Drive) the last few days have given me an opportunity to really think about the details of what went down, and it’s still pretty similar to how I felt when I heard the news for the first time...

Final score (85-77) and three-game winning streak aside, Celtics fans have reason continue to be encouraged by the performances this week at the Orlando Summer League.
