Andrew Perna

After working through the deal, it’s a good one for the Celtics. Only “risk" is less playing time for Zeller/Olynyk.

Andrew Perna

So, the Celtics will have McGee, Olynyk, Zeller and Sullinger under contract for next season. Lot of mediocrity there.

Jay King

There's also a lot of other things in the notes. Stevens on Olynyk return, ridiculous turnover total, and more. masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Jay King

Stevens said "the way the game was going," Jerebko seemed like better option than "tentative" Olynyk.

Jay King

Now Bass in there. Olynyk still on the bench.

Olynyk on absence, "I did some damage to [ankle], so I wanted to make sure it was good so I could come back + help.” es.pn/1EhlCOd

Chris Forsberg

Olynyk asked how he might avoid future ankle injuries. Deadpans, "Best thing to do is to try to avoid coming down on other people’s feet."

Stevens hinted Jae Crowder will move to the second-unit 3 with Olynyk back. Speculating, but could limit/remove James Young minutes.
