    In response to CubanPete's comment:   Young was a stupid pick. It's indicative of how inept team management is.   ...the King of the Rumba Beat...   [object HTMLDivElement]         A lot of draft boar more »

    Think about Wiggins and his one year of college.  He was inconsistent.  He didn't dominate all the time, great games here and there.  In some of KU's biggest games he was practically invisible.  I jus more »

    Taking on Thornton's deal is meant as a strategy to clear space for next year if his contract expires or to help in the acquisition of a player via trade who will be here long term, either now or at t more »

    I'm guessing that since this team is in rebuild mode that Thornton will not get a lot of minutes and is counting the seconds until he can leave town.  He may not even be here past the summer.  Danny w more »

    All I'll add is that Smart doesn't need to be jacking threes.  I get that it's summer league and he's working on his form and getting used to the three point line.  He can get to anywhere on the floor more »

    Posted 07/11/2014 10:16:54 EDT

    At worst, Zeller is a low cost 5 who can probably play 25+ mins. and average 8 points and 5 rebounds.  They got the guy as a trade throw-in but he happens to actually have some skill and fills a need. more »

    LeBron homecoming?  Good for us.  We get an expiring contract, a big man and a pick.  Good move by Danny.

    I thought the TPE couldn't be used on multiple players?  And wouldn't DA want to use it to acquire an expiring contract if he can't use it to land a player who fits here?  It seems there are multiple more »

    I watched both summer league games multiple times.  Smart comes as advertised on the defensive end.  He can handle the ball and distribute just fine like a PG.  It seems like he's getting used to the more »

    What I don't get is that the same people who want the Celts to pursue Chandler Parsons and pay the guy whatever he wants ignore the fact that Jeff Green is essentially the same player - a little older more »

    It will take a strong training camp to unseat Bolden in my opinion.  He does lots of things well.  He's a jack-of-all trades RB who, while not great, knows the offense, plays special teams and could s more »

    Bradley has turned out to be a pretty good pick and a superb find at 19.  His career to date supports that he should have gone in the lottery, he is worthy of a top ten pick for the year he was drafte more »

    AB may have been overpaid, not based on talent but on his ability to be an 82 game contributor.  He's had a lot of injuries for a guy that young.  But you know what?  The C's slightly overpaid for a g more »

    If the Celts can get some veteran talent to add to their core (core is Rondo...?) I am sure they could find a passable big man/rim protector.  Doesn't make sense to add a Gortat until they markedly im more »

    I like this pick.  He will be a good and (potentially very good) player.  I would be shocked if he isn't a contributor next year and a long term core player.

    Like people say about Belichick and Brady, let's see how good the Spurs are post-Duncan.  That guy is arguably the best PF of all time.  I like how the Spurs find players, sure, but even at his age a more »

    Most fans realise that Ells' performance could make letting him go look like the wrong decision early in the deal.  Conversely, it's hard to judge a player on a long term deal 70 something games into more »

    I like Bradshaw and all, but I think the Steel Curtain, a strong running game and a roster full of hall of famers had a lot to do with the Steelers' success winning some of those 4 SBs.  It was a diff more »

    Agreed that trading Love within the conference for the chance to "stay competitive" seems like backward thinking.  IF the Wolves trade Love to GSW they made their chance at the playoffs harder to atta more »

    I can't see him slipping, but if he does, it's worth the shot.  He is a high upside guy if healthy.  Big if I know.

    Seems it's related to the Armstead clotting story, or one of the UFA TEs passing a physical?
