Times, the Boston Celtics have offered Marcus Smart, their number 16 and 28th picks in the first round, to the Philadelphia 76ers for Nerlens Noel and the third overall pick in Thursday’s annual draft.

Why This Year’s NBA Draft Doesn’t Really Matter

With the draft less than three weeks away, the rumor mill has been abuzz with talk of the Celtics potentially trading up in the draft for a lottery pick.

Regarding Paul Pierce’s (Potentially) Impending Free Agency

While Paul Pierce can always pick up his $5.5 million player-option with the Washington Wizards, the growing consensus among league insiders suggests he’ll opt out this off season and sign elsewhere.  Whether or not this next season is Pierce’s last is anyone’s guess, and despite his still-impactful presence on the court, the 10x All-Star is now 37 years old and […]

The Truth is (Still) Out There: An Update on Paul Pierce

Can Danny Ainge Set Off Fireworks this Offseason?

On Thursday, the Celtics Twitter account quoted Danny Ainge saying “I don’t think we’ve ever had cap space in the history of the Celtics, at least since I’ve been here.

Date with Destiny: Celtics Set to Face Lebron, Cavs in Return to Playoffs

Some Celtics fans were probably hoping for the team to lose its last two games and avoid the Cleveland Cavaliers and their league best record 34-9 over the last three months in Round One.

Jared Sullinger No Longer Out for Season

The Celtics received some very surprising and very good news Friday afternoon.

Does Brad Stevens Deserve Consideration for Coach of the Year?

For over 50 years, the Red Auerbach Trophy has been awarded each season to the NBA coach whom  sportswriters have deemed the most exceptional.

Last year was the first time in 11 seasons that its recipient, Gregg Popovich, was awarded the honor and then […]
