WYC GROUSBECK RUMORS

Wyc Grousbeck Offers Interesting Look Into Celtics’ Plan For Nets Pick

If the ping pong balls (finally) go the Boston Celtics’ way this season, they could end up with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. But the fact is nobody knows where the C’s first-round draft swap with the Brooklyn Nets will end up until the lottery takes place. That means if they use the pick in a deal before the Feb. 23 trade deadline, they’ll do so without...

Celtics owner: Trade offers were ‘a collection of rip-off attempts’

The Boston Celtics were engaged in a lot of trade discussions leading up to the NBA Draft, but nothing came of it – apparently because the offers they received were insulting.

Wyc Grousbeck: Celtics Would Consider Trading Picks For The Right Deal

The Boston Celtics have a shot at a top pick in this year’s draft lottery, but they aren’t necessarily going to use it come June 23. The Celtics own Brooklyn’s first-rounder in the 2016 NBA draft, and because the Nets had the third-worst record in the league, Boston now has a 15.6 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick. But Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck said on CSNNE...

Celtics owner: Rajon Rondo is stubborn, possibly uncoachable

Rajon Rondo is a strong-willed, hard-headed basketball player who is not easy to coach. That is considered common knowledge. It just sounds a little different when an owner says it.
