Boston Celtics: Evan Turner Signing Grade

Boston Celtics: Evan Turner Signing Grade Nekias Duncan: Lead Writer At Hoopstuff… Terms: currently undisclosed, estimated between $2M-4M per season… I’ll preface this by saying I’m a huge Evan Turner fan, and have been since he was balling out at Ohio State.

Celtics take flyer on former #2 overall pick Evan Turner

Celtics finishing deal for FA Evan Turner, sources tell Herald. He will get a portion of their mid-level exception. — Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) July 21, 2014 Well, I’ll be damned. A week ago when Jeff Goodman first reported the Celtics interest in Turner, I didn’t think there was room on the roster for another wing. While we await specifics on Turner’s salary, we know the...

Celtics unveil new alternate logo

The Boston Celtics unveiled a new alternate logo on Monday. The goal in creating the logo was to extend the Celtics brand with a symbol reflecting the rich tradition of the organization throughout its history, yet versatile enough to work across various formats and products.

Boston Celtics: Trading Rajon Rondo And Jeff Green

Boston Celtics: Trading Rajon Rondo And Jeff Green By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… The 2nd that Marcus Smart was drafted 6th in the draft by Boston, who I believe is the best point guard in this draft and the 4th best prospect, I assumed that Rajon Rondo was going to be traded. He is still in Boston, but with Marcus Smart ready to be a starter and an All Star...

Celtics owner: We definitely hoped to make bigger moves this offseason

Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck told Rob Bradeford of WEEI that he wanted to land a star this offseason to pair with Rajon Rondo. The Celtics want Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love. “We had definitely hoped to try to make bigger moves this offseason, to be honest,” he said. “Having said that, it takes two partners to make a trade, so we focused on longterm trying...

Celtics owner on offseason: 'We hoped to make bigger moves'

The NBA’s offseason has featured many star players switching teams, confirming that basketball has the most exciting free agency period in sports. One team that has been surprisingly quiet in the trade and free agent markets this summer has been the Boston Celtics, and majority owner Wyc Grousbeck admitted to WEEI’s Rob Bradford that he hoped his team could have made more progress...

Blame It On Rondo

One of the most ridiculous 'factals' that has been propagated into near truth is the claim that Rajon Rondo was awful in 2013-2014.   I suppose that one of the reasons this notion has taken on such legs is that the Celtics organization - as is their wont - badly misled people about what to expect.  We were led to believe that Rondo was expected back by opening day, and...

Waiting for the Love trade, that won't include Boston

As Crowded House once said "Don't dream it's over", but I think it is over for Boston in the Love sweepstakes. It was a nice "dream" for the past month or so. But now back to reality. Maybe it was a way to sale more tickets? Maybe it was a genuine attempt by Ainge and Wyc to put the Celtics in contention again. The fireworks backfired, and Ainge is missing...

Boston Celtics: Marcus Smart, rookie of the year

The Boston Celtics have not had a rookie win the rookie of the year award since Larry Bird in the 1979-1980 season. Point guards have won the award seven out of the last ten years and three years in a row. One of those trends will not continue this season. While the majority of people within NBA circles feel the rookie of the year award will be a battle between Jabari Parker and...

Tanguay and Jeff Goodman attack Rondo, and blame him for Celtics woes in free agency

The other bloggers are right. Red's Army and Jeff Clark from Celtics blog called this guy out, and they should have. He's not very good at his job, so he stirs the pot. Tanguay is another animal. This guy has no redeeming qualities. He's always on Rondo, and he calls for a trade every other day. Jeff Goodman has no idea, and Tanguay as well. In the past Kobe said he wanted...

Report: Rondo makes it hard for Celtics to attract free agents

Rajon Rondo will never be known as the easiest player to coach. Doc Rivers alluded to that on several occasions during his tenure with the Boston Celtics. But what about as a teammate? Rondo certainly does a great job of sharing the ball and getting everyone involved, but ESPN’s Jeff Goodman says the presence of […]
