    Celts have Bass, Sully, Oly, Fav, and Joel Anthony under contract for next season.

    Colton Iverson could also be signed next season.

    That's why I don't get it when some Celtic fans here want to add Hump for 7-8m per year.



    Because they like what Hump has brought. I like what Hump has brought. But I agree there's too much of a log-jam at PF. If we could only get rid of Bass and Anthony..... But even then, we still have Olly and Sully. Hump as a backup C? Surely not a 3rd string PF.



    I am with you. I think Hump has brought a lot, that coming from me who didnt give him a chance. He has shown loyalty and desires of staying. To what extent, it will be interesting to see as usually $ talks.

    How good can this Colton guy be? Cuz he's cheap don't mean he's good.



    At $1m he will be more than good enough for next season. His rebounding, hard picks, and outside shooting fit in well with Stevens system.

    I can only picture another tanking year with Colton in the rotation.  Let's be clear, this is another move along the line of more future tanking if Colton is all there is to replace Hump.  Nothing wrong with that but there are obvious reasons why some people are not looking forward to that.


    We probably will be around 4th from the bottom in terms of record this year, so what are we shooting for with that kind of move?

    So let's be clear, when you say we have a 7-footer next season, that is really not the case.  They are going through the motion for tanking again.  Colton is just one of the means to an end.

    I also heard today that he said he wants the team and the fans to see progress and a sense that there is a reason to feel better next year (paraphrasing).  I understand the logic for being even worse next year, but he could take incremental step up also.  I am not certain which way for sure he will go this summer.

    I would think it's still about aquiring top young talent, next season as well. Even if we're lucky enough to get Jabrari or Joel in the draft, they alone wont catapult us into the playoffs with a chance of going deep into the playoffs. So with that kind of move, The C's would definately be saying it's all about developement and tanking still, IMO. Unless they feel Colton is actually ready to contribute. Though I think he'ld have trouble staying in games. Kinda like Royce White. Fouling out in 10 minutes of action. lol

    Shedding salary this summer to make a run at free agents in summer 2015 would certainly be seen, by me anyways, as a major step forward - think about it - combining a very good, young talent base with veteran free agents in the summer of 2015.

    Celts are going to be a lottery team this season and next season.

    Some Celtic fans here just refuse to believe that.

     

    i'll cast my lot with that bunch, fiercy.

    Re: We have a 7-footer for next season

    WHY WAS COLTON IVERSON SENT TO TURKEY TO PLAY ?

    AREN'T THERE OTHER EURO LEAGUES THAT ARE BETTER ?

    NOT TO MENTION, WHY NOT JUST SEND HIM TO THE D LEAGUE ?????????????????????????

    I THOUGHT THE D LEAGUE WAS EQUIVILENT TO ANY OF THE EURO, ISRAELI, CHINESE OR AUSTRALIAN LEAGUES ?

    STILL, CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THIS GUY GO UP AGAINST VITOR FAVORANI......PRESUMABLY, FAVORANI WAS SO MUCH BETTER THAN IVERSON THAT HE HAS BEEN ON THE ROSTER ALL SEASON WITH TRIPS TO THE D LEAGUE ?????

    SO I BEG TO DIFFER, DO WE HAVE A 7 FOOTER FOR NEXT SEASON ???????

    IF IVERSON WAS ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS, THEN WHY DIDN'T HE PLAY IN THE D LEAGUE THIS SEASON ???? DID THE TURKISH TEAM PAY HIM BIG MONEY $$$$$$ ???

    WHAT'S THE PAY LIKE IN THE D LEAGUE ??? I'M ASSUMING IT'S LESS THAN EURO OR CHINA ........

     

    PS: I HOPE JOEL ANTHONY GETS A CHANCE AT SOME BIG MINUTES THE REST OF THE SEASON....WE NEED TO KNOW IF HE WILL BE PART OF NEXT SEASON"S TEAM !

    This is where you fail as a board contributor. You speak as if its set in stone. Is not your opinion, it is you who hold the clue to everything fkn attitude that sucks. No offense, i like how you know the rules and are up to date with it all but you make everyone feel like they are wrong and you are right. Having said that, we are not far from making the playoffs in such a weak conference even more a weaker division. Plus we do have some good players. Seeing the celtics in the 2015 playoffs, does not sound that far from reality.

    i realize the board is sick of rondo this, that, and the other and that this is an iverson thread, nonetheless the indicators are that ownership and DA want 9 here. as such, danny needs to get a competitive team together tout suite. ainge has that process well begun. Cs in lottery next year will be deemed a step back by ownership.

    Why this sudden fascination with Colton?  I hope that he will become a NBA player some day.  Currently, he does not figure in my thoughts on Celtics future.  I just don't see how he will materially affect any decision that Danny will make next year.

    my understanding is he has a bit of a mean streak and delights in setting bone jarring picks. we've got room for some of that.




    Agreed...he'll give us what FAV can't...BTW, did FAV die or what?

    Why spend 7-8m on Hump when Colton Iverson will only cost 1m?

     

    Are the Celts going deep in the playoffs next season?

     

    If not then develop players like Colton Iverson and Olynyk.




    Damn! I agree with u. 



    RALLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

    I agree with your agree...

    Did FAV die or what?....LOL...I thought he was going to be our "5"...he's more like a minus 5...at least he hasn't swacked his head on the door frame and given himself a "Maine Concussion" like Melo did!

    I want to sign and trade Humphries for some value, the value that was not there at the deadline like you predicted it would be. 

    Ainge came out and said there would be a lot more opportunities this summer.

    You just want to beat this 'signing Humphries to a new contract is stupid' thing into the ground b/c you are on the record saying: "If Humphries is here past the deadline he is 100% GONE with the Celtics getting NOTHING!"

    Clearly there is a good chance he is in a sign and trade and even a small chance he gets a new contract here, which you a terrified of seeing happen. Hahahaha.

    Ainge said it's about player development.

     

     

    Sully, Oly, Fav, Joel Anthony, and Colton Iverson are all going to be a part of the Celtics next season.

    So Hump is a luxury the Celts can't afford.



    Hahahaha .... what a stupid comment!!!!

    Yeah Ainge wants to "develop" Joel Anthony ... he needs some experience so he can be more useful next season ... LOL!!!!

     

    FIERCY makes 500 posts about how wrong everyone is and wait till the deadline and Bass and Hump will be gone in the name of tanking ....

    And when he comes up snake eyes, what's he do?  He tries to convince the rest of the tanking crowd not to worry cuz next year we will "really tank."   Hahahaha!!!!!  Talk about moving the goal posts ... from this season to next seasons deadline ... a year out he needs now to be correct. I can't wait for him to be BACK TO BACK WRONG and take you loser tankers with him.

    Are you guys nutz!!!  You really think Ainge is putting his ownership and fan base through this losing season to get into the best lottery in years so that he can do it again for 2015 by dumping his core a second time?!?!?!?!?!?  LOL!!! 

    If this team isn't better after getting 1 or two lottery picks, having a $10MM TPE, Sully & Oly from the last two drafts, their core intact and another 10-20 picks in the coming years for tweaking, trading & dumping bad contracts then Danny won't be around to see the job completed. He needs to show progress from this seasons doings, not thinking about getting worse next season than we were/are this season ... You guys are trying to be right no matter how stupid you have to be to get there ... You're killing me!!!! 


    Besides, Petey already told you that a frontcourt of Sully, Oly, Bass, Hump & Embiid, Asik or ??? sets your FC for some time. Anthony won't be here and Iverson won't be any better than Fav whose got something like 5 years experience in Europe before coming here. So how is Iverson gonna become better than Fav after playing one season in Europe???  Are you guys even thinking about what FIERCY is saying?????

    Petey nailed it ... Until we get that BIG FA or develop an Embiid or other prospect we are gonna need more than Sully and Bass guarding the paint. Build upon the core we have and do some work with the wings as Petey suggests until things gel in another year or two. But if you insist ... here's to those that can't think for themselves ... Enjoy!!!

     

     

     

     

     



    How are the Cs going to sign a free agent? They'd need to be under the cap. All these sign and trades do is fill up the roster  with non all star players. They have to be under the cap to sign free agents.  Hump walking gets them closer to that point.

    Sign and trading is very difficult finding a willing and able trade partner and one that has an asset that the Cs would want and the other team would be willing and able to trade. Just not that many steals out there. Hump would have been gone at the deadline or before if there were a lot.
