Brandon Bass has admirably filled his changing role at power forward for the Celtics the past three seasons without a word of complaint. Bass was the subject of trade rumors before the deadline, including a deal that would have brought Rockets center Omer Asik to Boston in December.
But Bass stayed put, never showing disappointment with being placed on the block or his uncertain place in the franchise’s future plans. Bass, who will turn 29 next month, is a free agent after next season and may be a victim of the Celtics’ transition to a new era.
Still, he continues to play hard.
