The Pierce/Garnett trade is a gift that keeps on giving

The Pierce/Garnett trade is a gift that keeps on giving

It’s so hard to keep track of all the moving parts in Danny Ainge’s rebuilding plan. There are so many picks with so many protections from so many teams. Players have come and gone. And, the thing that most people aren’t talking about, is how the Celtics structure just about every trade to get themselves [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Sullinger will be out for a while

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.

Thornton, Prince traded away as Ainge finally gets Isaiah Thomas

Thornton, Prince traded away as Ainge finally gets Isaiah Thomas

At this point, I feel like Danny Ainge was inside the maternity ward at Isaiah Thomas’ birth offering his mom Austin Ainge and a conditional future son in exchange for her newborn.  As soon as the Suns showed interest in trading Thomas, it was clear Boston would be involved. And today, finally, Ainge’s obsession has [...]

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. As of last night, there have been, according to several league sources, no bites, or even much of a nibble. The rest of the NBA has [...]

Wait, a GM called about Gerald Wallace?

Wait, a GM called about Gerald Wallace?

I missed this juicy tidbit in Steve Bulpett’s latest column: In this market, the Celtics have wares to offer. Tayshaun Prince, Brandon Bass and Marcus Thornton can all be had, and, while it’s hard to picture another club wanting to take on 32-year-old Gerald Wallace with $10.1 million left on his contract for 2015-16, at [...]

Assessing the Trade Value of the Boston Celtics: Part 1

Assessing the Trade Value of the Boston Celtics: Part 1

Every year, Grantland’s Bill Simmons comes out with his NBA trade value column in which he assesses the value of the NBA’s top players by listing the top 60 trade assets in order (with some honorable mention candidates). It’s a column I look forward to every year. Simmons does a great job looking at the [...]
