Ranking Boston's Draft Pick Arsenal

Over the last year or so, many in the media have fawned over Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics' war chest of assets. Boston certainly has a large number of picks, but face a problem because their quantity largely outpaces their quality. Leaving the second round picks aside for the moment (as of now, they have six in the next three drafts), here are the draft picks Boston has from...

Report: Boston is eyeing enough cap space for two max contracts next summer

The Boston Celtics didn't sign a star with their loads of cap space, and that's not ideal. But they also didn't sacrifice any of their long-term flexibility.With Gerald Wallace and Evan Turner coming off the books next summer, Boston will have enough cap space to add two max contracts to its roster, a move that would obviously put the Celtics in the driver's seat for the foreseeable...

Recap: Marcus Smart leads Celtics in Summer League opener

The Celtics opened up the Summer League schedule tonight in Utah against the host Jazz in what might as well have been billed as “Marcus Smart vs. Dante Exum.” That shouldn’t be shocking as they were the 5th and 6th picks last year who both had plenty of fine moment last season against actual NBA competition. Against a collection of rookies getting adjusted to new systems...

Marcus Smart is a big fan of Terry Rozier

I see you TerryWhen the Celtics first drafted Terry Rozier, many of us thought his talents were possibly a little redundant for this team. We already have Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley, two defense first guards that aren't as feared on the offensive end as the defensive. Since you don't get to the NBA by being anything less than ultra competitive, if you're being honest there is...

Your Morning Dump… Where we salute Brandon Bass

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

So when the Kings reportedly inked former Celtic Rajon Rondo to a one-year, $9.5 million contract Friday, leaving starting point guard Darren Collison in the dust, Thomas took a jab at the team on Twitter. @aaronbruski lol...

It's time for Boston to swing a few trades

For the Boston Celtics, the draft is done and so is free agency (they can still sign players, but no longer have the cap space to land a star). Over the past few weeks they added Terry Rozier, R.J. Hunter, Jordan Mickey, Marcus Thornton and Amir Johnson, and they brought back Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko. That's a decent haul, even if none of those players are All-Stars capable...

Grading The Deal: Celtics Sign Amir Johnson To Two-Year, $24M Deal

The Boston Celtics entered free agency quietly with a two-year, $24 million deal with Amir Johnson. Johnson, who has split his NBA career between the Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors, has the distinction of being the last player to jump from high school straight to the pros. Detroit drafted him 56th overall back in 2005. His lack of college experience makes him a 28-year-old...
