CELTICS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Your Afternoon Dump..Where Smart Is Simon Phoenix

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. Marcus Smart has never seen “Demolition Man.” He wasn’t born until the year after the Sylvester Stallone-Wesley Snipes film hit theaters. But his new ’do, a faux-hawk with lighter coloring on top, bears...

Pressey must prove his worth after surprise addition to Summer League roster

Phil Pressey is a tiny point guard who can zoom up and down the floor and make tremendous decisions in the open court. For the Boston Celtics, he's especially valuable because of how his contract is constructed. But the Celtics may not need Pressey on their roster next year, being that they already have Isaiah Thomas, Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley in the backcourt...

Isaiah Thomas trolls Kings after Rajon Rondo signing

Isaiah Thomas has been there before. The Boston Celtics point guard was drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 2011, but their breakup wasn’t exactly amicable. 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...

What is Jae Crowder's ceiling?

Originally sent to Boston as an unknown in the Rajon Rondo trade, Jae Crowder quickly became a favorite of the TD Garden faithful, as he helped the team make an unexpected run to the playoffs last spring. His most memorable moment came when he drained the game-winning three-pointer against Toronto, which secured the Celtics the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference:After being swept...

Boston Celtics sign PF Amir Johnson to 2 year/ $24 mil contract.

Team Green!!!! The first domino has fallen (sarcasm) we have signed Amir Johnson to a 2 year contract worth $24 million. With the new cap era beginning if Amir thrives in Brad Stephens system this could be a fairly good contract but as of now since we are all use to the old salary cap contracts this looks like a bad deal for a 9 point 6 rebound guy, However I will remain optimistic...

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...
