“We’ve got a lot of opportunities to do something significant this summer,” said Celtics assistant general manager Mike Zarren. “There’s going to be a lot of good free agents. We could move up in the draft. We’ve got assets of every kind that other teams like. It’s too early to really know what’s going to happen — the lottery hasn’t even happened yet — but we’ll be very, very active in all phases of front office work this summer.” Boston Herald
“There’s a lot of teams that are going to be active this summer, so that makes for a more liquid trade market for us,” said Zarren. Asked if said organizations will be more active than we usually see, Zarren nodded. “I think so,” he said. “I think there’s just a lot of teams in the middle in the NBA right now, and they all sort of feel like they need to do something. That will create more opportunities for us, because we’ve got as many assets as any other team, if not more.” Boston Herald
“Look, Boston still doesn’t know what they have in James Young,” said one general manager of the player the Celts took at 17 last June. “But what we do know is that if Young went back to school for another year, we’d be talking about him as a top-10 pick in this draft.” Boston Herald
