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

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 [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where getting big free agents won’t be easy

Your Morning Dump… Where getting big free agents won’t be easy

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. What we don’t know yet is how those free agent contracts are structured and how much actual room they will have to finish the roster renovation. The [...]

Scout: Jared Sullinger would start for some teams

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 [...]

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. “Sometimes you’ve got to step out and clear your path a little bit more than you would have done otherwise and just let it be known,” Allen [...]

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 [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the pressure doesn’t bother E’Twaun

Your Morning Dump… Where the pressure doesn’t bother E’Twaun

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.  The 24-year-old guard is rather unflappable. It’s maybe his strongest trait, even beyond his shooting prowess and evolving point guard skills. This is a monster summer for [...]

Jonathan Gibson leads C’s to Summer League win… wait who?

Jonathan Gibson leads C’s to Summer League win… wait who?

The Celtics were scuffling along in typical summer league fashion.  They were down by 17 to the Brooklyn Nets… … until undrafted rookie Jonathan Gibson took over. Gibson dropped 17 points off the bench and led the Celtics to a 30-14 fourth quarter and 82-73 Celtics win.  Gibson is a 6’1″ guard out of New [...]

For those secretly hoping Nenad Krstic would return to the Celtics, or that Danny Ainge would be able to move him for another asset – forget about it. Nads enjoys playing hoops in Brooklyn South Beach Moscow. He just signed a three year contract with CSKA Moscow. Krstic was recently named to the All-Euroleague 1st team. [...]

The Celtics quiet youth movement

The Celtics quiet youth movement

We all know the jokes.  The Celtics are so old, they put Geritol in the Gatorade buckets.  They’re so old, medicare covers half the team’s payroll.  They’re so old, Dick Bavetta asks to referee their games so they can feel young again. When the Celtics got the commitment from Jason Terry, the joke machine went [...]

Your Morning Dump… A sign-and-trade for Courtney Lee will be tricky

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.  “There was no verbal agreement or anything, we’re just hearing each other out,” Lee said. “They expressed their interest. I expressed my interest. It’s not basketball wise, [...]
