Basketball Insiders: This summer, you guys lost Paul Pierce, but you added some quality veterans in Jared Dudley, Gary Neal and Alan Anderson among others. Personally, I liked the moves since those guys can be key contributors and they will improve your depth. What did you think of the team’s offseason? John Wall: “It was great. It was tough losing Paul [Pierce], Rasual [Butler] and those guys because they helped us a lot, but I like the additions. Alan [Anderson] can help us. Gary [Neal] has been around a team that’s been to the Finals. A guy like Jared Dudley knows what it takes to win and he’s someone who knows his role. These are all veteran guys who know their role and who can come in and just help us win games. Those kind of guys are key.”

One former Celtics teammate was expecting Rondo to stay with the Mavericks and perhaps match the success he had in Boston. “I was surprised, truthfully, when I saw what happened with Dallas,” Paul Pierce told the Herald. “I mean, I think it just kind of spiraled out of control. “I didn’t see that coming. When they made the trade, I looked at Dallas as a real, real contender. Now, they had a guard who could run the show, defensively match up with the other guards of the West. “I’m not on the inside. I can’t tell you what happened, how it all came to that. I just want Rondo to be in a place where he can show people the player that he is, that he truly is.”
