It looks like the Celtics are going to stand pat with the roster they have as the NBA season cruises towards the playoffs. In a move that was simply made to acquire another healthy body, multiple media outlets are reporting that the Celtics have sent Leandro Barbosa and Jason Collins to the Washington Wizards in […]
Amidst rumors at last season’s trade deadline, the Celtics were also on an epic west coast road trip, but they had just won two games in a row. Many viewed the Celtics strong play after last season’s All-Star break as an emphatic statement that Paul Pierce and crew wanted to keep the band together for […]
It’s been a strange NBA season to say the least. We had the lockout to start the season and that produced this ridiculous condensed schedule. There have been countless injuries, and of course the endless free agency speculation involving Magic center Dwight Howard. Despite all that, TV ratings are up over last year and the […]
Over the last month every imaginable trade rumor involving the Celtics’ ‘Big 4′ core has crept into the headlines. Was Danny Ainge really shopping Rajon Rondo?

They also dealt away Luke Harangody, Semih Erden and the injured Marquis Daniels. Just for reference: The other Kendrick Perkins.
The Cavaliers strengthened their chances of winning an NBA Title by acquiring Wizards power forward Antawn Jamison in a three-team deal. Oh, and Cleveland somehow is still in the Amare Stoudemire sweepstakes. Let’s cut to the chase: Cavs Get: Antawn Jamison (from WAS) Sebastian Telfair (from LAC) Wizards Get: Zydrunas Ilgauskas (from CLE) First-round pick […]
UPDATE (7:45 p.m. Wednesday): Eddie House went to Celtics practice on Wednesday, despite the fact there’s “strong possibility I’ll be traded tomorrow to New York.” He figured he’d practice in case the trade for Nate Robinson did not happen. “With that being said I have a bond with these guys and I’ll always have a […]
The Celtics made a deal right at the NBA Trade Deadline, trading seldom-used center Patrick O’Bryant to the Raptors in a three-team deal.
