    Getty Evan Fournier #94 of the Boston Celtics. When the Boston Celtics signed and traded Evan Fournier to the New York Knicks on August 17, 2021, they received nothing from New York outside of cash considerations, thus creating a trade exception the size of the first year of Fournier’s new contract. According to Spotrac, the first year of Fournier’s contract totaled $17,142,857 this season. By creating an exception that large, the Celtics were permitted to trade for a player who was paid for that amount or less by August 17, 2022. However, how much of that exception they could use all depended on their salary cap. An Eastern Conference executive recently told Heavy that because of Boston’s salary cap situation this summer, they won’t be able to use that full exception unless they cut ties with one of their big contracts like Al Horford. “They can’t use the Fournier TPE unless they create some room, really,” The executive said. “They’re going to be over the tax and right around the tax apron and that is basically a hard...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Shortly after he put the finishing touches on a 109-86 Game 2 win for the Celtics, Jayson Tatum took the podium inside TD Garden sporting a massive wrap on his left wrist. Considering Tatum is Boston’s superstar, it caused some concern among reporters in the room. Tatum, however, said there was nothing to worry about.

    Brad Stevens did not hesitate to shoot down the idea of him taking over the head coaching position with the Los Angeles Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers are on the hunt for a new head coach after firing Frank Vogel this past Monday, and if Boston Celtics GM Brad Stevens is on their list, they can cross his name off. Stevens made an appearance on Toucher and Rich radio show, and he was asked if he would entertain the idea of him becoming the Lakers coach if approached, Stevens replied: not entertaining it. “No. Not entertaining,” Stevens said bluntly about the possibility. “First of all, I have no idea what my future holds. I’m in one of those positions where someone decides to move on from me and this is the world we live in. I’m definitely not leaving to go to the Lakers. I know that for a fact.” Brad Stevens has had a successful career with the CelticsDuring his appearance, Stevens also talked about being a part of the Celtics organization. “How about the fact that I lived...
    Getty Josh Richardson, left, and Marcus Smart of the Celtics. It’s becoming increasingly evident that teams, including the Celtics, are walking a fine financial line as they head into the final days before the NBA‘s February 10 trade deadline. “What’s complicating trades is that people want to get off those $30 and $35 million contracts,” said one personnel man who’s been working the phones. “There’s a lot of teams that really want that $13 million check for the non-taxpayers,” he added, citing the expected payout endowed by the league’s big spenders. One agent pointed toward Greg Monroe’s brief stay in Minnesota, saying, “He’s not my guy, but he was perfect for them, both for how he could help on the court and just the toughness he could bring to a young team. They should have signed him to a second 10-day contract and then signed him for rest of the year. But they wanted to stay flexible in case they make a move before the deadline. They definitely had their eyes on the luxury tax threshold.” Josh Richardson...
    Getty Dennis Schroder, Boston Celtics Dennis Schroder has split opinions since the Boston Celtics acquired him in free agency. A ball-dominant point guard with shooting limitations and a reputation for providing intense perimeter defender. The Celtics already had a similar player on their books in Marcus Smart, so the move to bring in Schroder felt somewhat redundant to some. However, Schroder has proven to be a far better scorer than his counterpart, especially when turning the corner off screens and attacking downhill. But, for all his scoring ability, the Braunschweig native is proving to be a streaky player and has mixed in some stellar performances with some non-impactful games. Yet, for a guard on a one-year deal, earning a bargain $5.9 million this season, Boston is clearly armed with a bargain contract, should they choose to enter trade discussions. After all, there will likely be multiple teams who look to Schroder’s scoring ability off the bench and see him as an ideal piece to push them further into playoff contention or envision him being a catalyst for a...
    Getty Former Boston Celtics President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge. Danny Ainge retired from his role as the Boston Celtics‘ President of Basketball Operations at the end of the 2020-21 NBA Season. Brad Stevens made the step up from his role as head coach into Ainge’s now-vacated role, and thus, a summer of change within the Celtics franchise was born. Of course, Ainge may no longer be part of the NBA’s day-to-day operations, but that doesn’t stop the occasional rumor surfacing about a potential return to an NBA teams’ front office. In mid-November, Ainge was linked with being a potential candidate for the Portland Trail Blazers GM role, should Neil Olshey depart from the franchise. As fate would have it, Olshey left the Trail Blazers at the start of December, and that role remains open to applicants. It makes sense then that Ainge would face questions about his intentions – does he plan to stay in retirement? Or is he missing the excitement of leading a franchise towards the promised land? Speaking to NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg...
    Getty Boston Celtics stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown during a game against the Detroit Pistons. Since Jayson Tatum entered the NBA, questions have swirled around his fit next to Jaylen Brown in the Boston Celtics rotation. Five years later, we still can’t go a month without someone postulating a trade to split up the star duo. There’s recent proof of this too, just look back to early November when reports began to circulate linking Brown to the Philadelphia 76ers as part of a potential Ben Simmons trade. However, Brown and Tatum are still in the infancy of their careers, with neither player having entered their prime years. Tatum is still only 23-years-old, while Brown recently turned 25. One thing to note is that the Celtics All-Star duo has continually been subjected to questions on their off-court friendship, which many believe will play a part in any future success the All-Stars will share. Brown and Tatum recently sat down with Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston to address some of the narrative surrounding their supposedly poor relationship. “I’ve...
    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics have been bad to start this season, and it seems like it’s just getting worse. READ MORE: Celtics Blow 19-Point Second Half Lead, Lose To Bulls, 128-114Boston hit a new low Monday night, dropping yet another home game as the team blew a 19-point, second-half lead to the Chicago Bulls at TD Garden. The 128-114 loss dropped the Celtics to 2-5 on the season, the team’s worst start since a 1-6 beginning to the dreadful 2006-07 season. The Celtics were outscored by 32 points over the final 13 minutes of the contest, as the offense came to a screeching halt in the fourth quarter. Boston shot under 22 percent for the final frame, hitting none of the eight threes the team attempted. Getting to the free throw line could have probably stooped the bleeding, but the C’s attempted just one freebie in the fourth. All of that led to an embarrassing 11-point quarter for Boston. Instead of a quality win over one of the league’s hottest teams, the Celtics are...
    Jill Biden surprises her South Carolina prayer partner Teen arrested for shooting at football game that wounded five © Provided by CBS Sports Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was recently asked what advice he would impart to someone starting their first NBA head coaching gig. "You have to be authentic to yourself," he said. "When players feel that authenticity and honesty, that's the main thing they want to hear and see." We're not even in the regular season yet, and it seems as if first-year Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is establishing his own authenticity. At the beginning of camp, Udoka stressed that he didn't want to see his team excessively complaining to officials. It's one thing to say that -- most coaches do -- but it's another to actually enforce it. During the Celtics' 122-100 loss to the Miami Heat in Friday's preseason finale, Udoka stayed true to his word. Boston forward Grant Williams committed an offensive foul on an illegal screen early in the third quarter and, while he argued with the official, Heat big...
    As the Brooklyn Nets go on the road to continue their first-round playoff series with the Celtics, Kyrie Irving hopes his return to Boston is free of “racism” from the fans. “It’s not my first time being an opponent in Boston so I’m just looking forward to competing with my teammates and hopefully we can just keep it strictly basketball,” Irving told reporters Tuesday. “There’s no belligerence or any racism going on, subtle racism and people yelling sh*t from the crowd. But even if it is, it’s part of the nature of the game and we’re just gonna focus on what we can control.” Boston has a reputation for targeting Black athletes, with incidents occurring as recently as 2017, when former MLB outfielder Adam Jones claimed he was taunted with racial slurs several times by Red Sox fans. But ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith slammed Irving for blaming his tarnished relationship with Boston on racism. Instead, Smith believes Irving needs to accept some responsibility for the city’s bitterness toward the seven-time NBA All-Star. “Kyrie Irving was wrong to do this. He...
    Celebs and their kids in 2021 Americans Are Regaining Consumer Confidence — Here’s What They’re Buying There's a long-held theory that certain teams can turn it on for the playoffs. Usually that's just a common way to excuse the mediocrity of a talented team.  Still, it happens. The NBA regular season is long and no matter what we think, it doesn't make a ton of sense for a team to kill itself when its seed is mostly not moving anywhere.  That's what makes Tuesday's Boston Celtics-Washington Wizards NBA play-in tournament game a tricky one for handicapping. The Celtics are 2-point favorites at BetMGM, though it's hard to see how that's justified.  There's not much good to say about the Celtics. The Celtics went 1-5 down the stretch. They went 2-9 against the spread before covering in their final two (meaningless) regular-season games. Boston lost Jaylen Brown to a wrist injury and a disappointing season got worse. They're 36-36, which was rather shocking given the preseason expectations.  The point spread has mostly been moving. The Celtics opened as 1.5-point favorites,...
    Kevin Garnett is being inducted in the Basketball Hall of Fame this weekend and took some time to share his love for the city of Boston. Kevin Garnett is finally being enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame this weekend as part of the 2020 class. COVID-19 canceled last year’s festivities. He will always be remembered for spending over a decade with the Minnesota Timberwolves. But he only reached the mountaintop of winning a championship in a Boston Celtics uniform. Garnett was traded to Boston in 2007 and was a champion at the conclusion of the season. Playing in Boston is entirely different than in Minnesota. Garnett discussed that and shared one regret he had about his second NBA home. Kevin Garnett says he embraced the Bostons "over-the-top" fanbase. He adds, "My only regret in any of this was that I should have came to Boston a little earlier. Other than that, it was magical." pic.twitter.com/krVfqjxyqv — Taylor Snow (@taylorcsnow) May 14, 2021 Kevin Garnett wishes he arrived in Boston soonerGarnett may have had a bit of a culture shock...
    Getty Images James Harden, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets high-five after coming off the court The Brooklyn Nets, currently tied for first place in the Eastern Conference are heavily favored to win East but not everyone is buying the hype surrounding the superstar trio of Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and James Harden.

    Getty Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett celebrate Opinions. Everybody’s got ‘em, but some more than others. These days, Boston Celtics legend and Hall of Fame finalist Paul Pierce has a lot of opinions on why his former franchise continues to struggle. At 20-20 and seemingly still without direction, the current Celtics are a far cry from the dominant squads Pierce played with throughout the 2000s and ’10s — although the same could be said for most teams in the league. ALL the latest Celtics news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Celtics newsletter here! Join Heavy on Celtics! But what Pierce, the franchise’s second all-time leading scorer sees as the biggest problem facing Boston’s current iteration is a lack of consistent play from the bench, which ends up putting too much pressure on their young stars night in and night out. “I think they lack depth, man, I really do,” Pierce told WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton this week. “You have two All-Stars in Jaylen (Brown) and Jayson (Tatum) up front. [But] people don’t realize how...
    NBA : Her Eurohoops team/ [email protected] Rick Pitino belongs again to his favorite NCAA, with the chapter “Panathinaikos” being officially closed after his two terms in it. The American college basketball legend has in his rich biography both the NBA with the Knicks (assistant in 1983-1985 and head coach in 1987-1989) and the Celtics (1997-2001), before the highly successful course in Louisville (2001). -2017). In the “magic world”, the 67-year-old did not do so well. Although he made it to the playoffs with the New York team (1988), he could not make it to the Celtics for a year, although he was introduced as the “Messiah” in May 1997, when he was announced by the team, which… disappear from successes. And somewhere there comes its top and historic attack. On March 1, 2000, the Celtics (23-34) lost at home to the Raptors (31-25) with a buzzer beater by Vince Carter for 94-96 and at the Press Conference Pitino made history with his words and not with his achievements! Larry Byrd will not go through this...
    Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have developed into phenomenal players for the Boston Celtics. The Celtics’ future looks safe with the two being their leaders. But is it finally time to worry about their postseason performances? Even in the 2020 postseason, the Celts couldn’t make it all the way to the finals. They were one of the favorites to come out of East. However, Miami stopped them in their tracks. Jaylen Brown opens up on the regular season expectations from the team Jaylen Brown talked about the expectations for this season in a media conference. “I am not worried at all,” said Brown. “I believe in our system, our coaching staff, and the guys we have. We just gotta come out and get a rhythm, get a feel for it with each other. Obviously, we got some guys that are out and obviously we got some guys who are stepping into new roles and we’re just going through that process.” Despite missing Kemba Walker for at least the first half of the season, Boston has plenty of star power.

    After losing Kyrie Irving in the off-season, Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge got in Kemba Walker as his replacement. Not only has Walker continued his All-Star form from previous seasons, but has also taken a special role as a leader. Unlike Irving, Walker has placed the team in front of himself, and let his teammates shine. Making the most out of this is the upcoming superstar, Jayson Tatum. While talking about the Celtics chances to make the NBA Finals this year, Nick Wright from First Things First said that he would have to emulate some of the greatest players of all time. “KD, LeBron, Duncan, Shaq & Hakeem. That’s the full list of guys 23 or under who have taken their team to the Finals in the last 40 years. In order for the Celtics to make it, Jayson Tatum is going to have to join that list.” Later he tweeted, “It’s not a knock on Jayson Tatum to acknowledge this simple fact that he’s not yet ready to be the best player on a Finalist.
