Danny Ainge and Mark Bartelstein, the agent for Will Bynum, continued to work yesterday to find a destination for the veteran point guard that might also bring the Celtics something of value in return. “We’re trying to see if there is something we can do,” said Bartelstein, who added Bynum is working out in Chicago, where years ago he was the high school teammate of Tony Allen.

Bartelstein stressed that Bynum has neither been asked to stay away from Celtics training camp nor refused to attend. According to the agent, Bynum has recovered from a strained hamstring that kept him out of preseason games for the Pistons prior to last week’s Joel Anthony trade, and is ready to resume workouts for either the Celtics or another team.

Eric Pincus: Looks like the Boston Celtics trade w/ the Detroit Pistons was a little more complicated than originally thought re: use of trade exceptions. The Celtics used their Humphries TPE to take in Will Bynum - was $4.25 mil, now $1.3 mil remaining @BBallInsiders basketballinsiders.com/boston-celtics… Twitter @EricPincus

Eric Pincus: Boston also attained a new TPE for Joel Anthony, for $3.8 mil, expiring in Oct 2015. Basically Boston sacrificed $450k of Hump TPE, expiring July - to have $3.8 mil Anthony TPE til Oct @BBallInsiders basketballinsiders.com/boston-celtics… Twitter @EricPincus

Tim Frazier, Rodney McGruder, and Christian Watford were brought to camp with the expectation of being funneled to the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League as affiliated players. They've worked countless hours over the past month with Maine's new coach Scott Morrison is preparation for the likelihood they'll land with the Claws. The Celtics can assign up to four players to Maine as affiliated players, which means someone like Erik Murphy could also explore that opportunity if he's not enticed by another opportunity, including what's likely to be more lucrative overseas offers.

Scott Agness: Celtics to waive #iubb’s Christian Watford today, per @Marc_DAmico. I was told going in that he most likely would stick in the D-League. Twitter @ScottAgness

Rondo underwent a reevaluation last week that showed encouraging progress, but he has not been cleared for contact with nine days to go before the Celtics host the Brooklyn Nets to open the 2014-15 season on Oct. 29. "I don't know. I still haven't had any contact yet," Rondo said when asked about playing on opening night. "The opener is a little bit over a week away. I don't want to set goals; I just want to go as my hand heals." ESPN.com

Will Bynum, who is expected to be waived this week after coming over from Detroit in last week’s Joel Anthony trade, was, as expected, a ghost yesterday. “He’s not here,” Stevens said simply. Boston Herald
