Woj: Celtics seriously engaged with Marcus Smart on four-year deal

The cold negotiations reportedly turned hot as the two sides are gaining momentum on a four-year contract worth $46-50 million. Wojnarowski reports that talks are ongoing.

CelticsBlog roundtable: when will Jayson Tatum be the face of the franchise?

How long until Jayson Tatum is the 2nd best player in the Celtics? Follow-up: (gasp) how long until he’s the best? Sam Sheehan: Normally this is where I would step in and tell us to pump the brakes, remind everyone that he is a rookie and that his very likely to regress to the mean. That said, it really looks like he’s just going to keep getting better. With some natural regression from an aging Al and Hayward trying to re-establish a post-injury groove, I really think that it’s possible Tatum could be the Celtics second best player as soon as next year. I don’t think that’s...

Should the Celtics decline Yabusele’s 2019-2020 team option?

Should the Celtics decline Yabusele’s 2019-2020 team option?

No. The Celtics saw their Vegas Summer League play come to a close on Sunday after they fell to the Trailblazers 95-80. It was a game where the Celtics seemed to be outmatched from the opening tip, as they only led twice throughout the whole contest. As has been typical of the varsity squad, the summer Celtics hung around through standard scrappy determination. However it was clear by the end of the third quarter that the Blazers were simply too talented. That’s not exactly a surprise, as the Blazers had forged an impressive roster (by summer league standards) of players with NBA talent....

Welcome to deep summer thoughts with CelticsBlog

No NBA playoffs and no summer league make me something something. The NBA season is such a blur and the offseason has lately filled up our hours and this blog with tremendous content. We were a game away from the Finals then all of a sudden the draft was upon us and then free agency started and Summer League showed up and my head is still kind of spinning. Leaving Las Vegas tends to have a sobering effect on the offseason though. The scribes gather their things and head home and teams, players, and agents head back home to regroup or rethink their next steps. We’re still waiting on word...

Bulpett: Old foe Isiah Thomas impressed by Jaylen Brown’s all-around growth

LAS VEGAS — We have certainly come to a strange place in time when Pistons legend Isiah Thomas sees a former Detroit teammate as “the enemy” and the Celtics as a team to be supported.While Isiah Thomas laughingly notes the fact he hasn’t been in contact at all here with Bill Laimbeer, coach of the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces (“He’s with the Aces. I’m with the Liberty. He’s the enemy.”), the Hall of Famer continues to work and consult with Jaylen Brown of the Celtics.As detailed on these pages since around the time of the 2016 draft, Brown and Thomas became close through their...
