Predicting the Boston Celtics' Player Rotation In 2014-15

The Boston Celtics' offseason was everything but busy as the team declined to make any blockbuster moves. That did not calm down any of the trade buzz though as Celtics' management is focusing down the road rather than today.

Faverani Ready to Beach the Competition

Vitor Faverani wowed the C's faithful with some stellar performances in November last year, but November's hero became January's zero as he went from Celtics starter, to the Celtics bench, to the Maine Red Claws, to the medical disabled with a left knee issue. He had arthroscopic surgery for his left knee in March '14 to address a torn lateral meniscus, and since then has been rehabbing and enjoying all that Valencia, Spain has to offer this summer.

4 Players the Boston Celtics Need to Step Up Next Season

After shedding a few more veteran contracts and largely standing pat in free agency, the Boston Celtics have clearly moved into the second phase of their post-Big Three rebuild. However, it isn't enough for the C's to just keep acquiring young pieces and letting older players go.

New NBA television contract could raise salary cap $16M in 2016

This is what makes Danny Ainge a great GM: the new TV deal money could come into play as early as next summer, right when the Celtics will be freeing up cap space and rebuilding hard core. Talks have progressed so rapidly that details are emerging on a massive agreement that would see the league's annual rights fee more than double, with ESPN and Turner combining to pay more than $2 billion per year on average.

Was the Boston Celtics' rim protection acquisition promise fulfilled with Tyler Zeller?

Remember back in May when Jared Sullinger's father, Satch, said that the Boston Celtics "kind of promised" they were going to acquire a center this summer? Fans salivated about the possibility of acquiring a player like Omer Asik or Larry Sanders, but instead the Celtics served up Tyler Zeller. Sullinger has started losing weight , so he is keeping his end of the bargain, but have the Celtics? Even though Sanders is still available, it's likely that Boston's apparent "rim protection acquisition promise" begins and ends with Zeller.

Still a chance for Celtics trades or transactions

The days creep by and the possibility of a big trade to bring in help for Rondo seems pretty far fetched at this point. Unless Ainge steps in to make an unexpected play for Eric Bledsoe or Greg Monroe , or goes in the other direction and deals Rondo himself it seems like we've mostly got the team we'll start the season with.
