Steve Bulpett: Celtics will be acquiring Perry Jones, a second round pick and cash from Oklahoma City. Not really giving up anything. Tax deal for OKC.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Larry Bird set his annual end-of-season news conference for Thursday. He hasn’t informed Frank Vogel of future, sources tell @TheVertical.
Scott Agness: Frank Vogel is not scheduled to join Bird at tomorrow’s presser, but I’m told he was at the Fieldhouse Tuesday vigilantsports.com/2016/05/03/bus…
Vogel has the respect of his players but he can also play hardball. He is the perfect guy when it comes to being a face of the franchise, appearing at golf outings, meeting with season-ticket holders, and in accommodating various requests around the building. But basketball is business. The players and coaches know that. Vogel is the fourth-longest tenured head coach in The Association (six seasons) behind Gregg Popovich (20), Rick Carlisle and Erik Spoelstra (eight). There’s something to be said for continuity, especially in a league when leadership has a short leash on its coaches.
