Marcus Smart is available tonight.

Sean Grande

Here's your one-stop on the Celtics' draft picks the next three years. Yes, there will be a quiz later. http://t.co/zIpQZBrLVo

Brian Robb

Stevens on Rondo's reputation: "He never looked disengaged. Credit to him, he was always a part of the team and did his best."

Jared Weiss

Stevens says he never got a sense from Rondo that he had any question that he wanted to stay in #Boston. #Celtics

Jay King

Did Stevens ever get a sense Rondo was divided on staying? "Never. Not from him. ... He never looked disengaged."

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: we're going to be little different as team, but will be surprised if we don't compete well tonight.

Jay King

Stevens said Celtics gathered to discuss how appreciative they were of Rondo. And now they have to focus on the team in the locker room.

Jared Weiss

Stevens: “We got together this morning and talked about how appreciative we are of Rajon and how this is our team.” #Celtics

Emily Austen

Brad Stevens: "We wish Rajon Rondo nothing but the best and we're thankful for what he did for this organization." http://t.co/Szpazw1LEF

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: We wish Rajon Rondo the best and are thankful for everything he did for the franchise.

Marc D'Amico

Stevens: "We're excited to welcome Jameer, Brandan and Jae. All three come highly recommended as people and as basketball players."

Brian Robb

Stevens: "We wish Rondo nothing but the best, and are thankful for what he meant to this organization."

Jay King

Stevens: "We're really thankful for what he meant to this organization."

Jay King

Stevens: “We all feel like Rajon had a tremendous impact on this organization, on this city. We wish him nothing but the best."

Jared Weiss

Stevens: “We wish not only Rajon, but Dwight and Vitor the best. That turned into a numbers game in taking three guys back.” #Celtics

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Spoke with Rajon Rondo last night. Wished him well. Hardest difference b'tween pro/college coach those calls.

Marc D'Amico

Stevens: "We all feel like Rajon had a tremendous impact on the organization, and the city... To a man, we wish him nothing but the best."

Jared Weiss

Brad Stevens “We all feel like Rajon had a tremendous impact on this organization, on this city. We wish him nothing but the best.” #Celtics

Brian Robb

Brad Stevens: "Rondo was a championship member of the Celtics. To a man, we wish him nothing but the best."

Scott Souza

As aside between pressers, would like to see #Celtics hold off on the captain thing for awhile until the next true franchise leader emerges.

Sean Grande

Evan Turner will start the first post-Rondo game at point guard for the Celtics tonight.

Sean Grande

Marcus Thornton, James Young, Jameer Nelson, Jae Crowder, Brandan Wright all out for Boston tonight. Celtics will play with 10.

Marc D'Amico

Danny Ainge is set to meet the press at 6:30 pm EST. We'll have it live on @AmericanExpress Home Court Advantage on our app and website.

Scott Souza

Assuming Marcus Smart (Achilles strain) can give it a go, #Celtics will have 10 available players for tonight's game.

Scott Souza

Three newest #Celtics - along with Danny Ainge & assistant GM Mike Zarren - scheduled to meet w/ media before tonight's game.

A. Sherrod Blakely

#Celtics HC Brad Stevens has high hopes for Marcus Smart but when it comes to minutes, "he has to earn them and be available to earn them."

#celtics were reluctant to waive Vitor Faverani but with Dwight Powell included in the Rondo deal, they had little choice.

Dear, Mr. President, Never go "Full Menino". #JamesFlacco

Brian Robb

Great debate going on @FelgerAndMazz right now with @Marc_Bertrand and @Keefe21 on Rondo trade return. Strong points by both.

Evan Turner

Throwback to last night when me and @smart_ms3 were kickin it with the prodigy @avafratus at a xmas… instagram.com/p/wzLEGSzSIV/

Ben Rohrbach

Everyone that covered Rondo over the past 9 seasons has a different take today, and that's what makes him such a fascinating subject.

Thanks dawg. RT @JMastrodonato: If you read one Rondo story today, I highly recommend this one, via @Jay King --> masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens says Wright, Nelson and Crowder might be in the building tonight, but won't be available to play.

Brian Robb

New Mavericks additions will NOT be active for tonight's game, head coach Brad Stevens just told @GreshandZo

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens cites Gerald Wallace as the guy who will fill the leadership void. God help us all.

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens says Rondo gave little indication of whether he was excited to go to Mavs or upset about leaving C's, which is so Rondo.

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens on Rondo: "I think he's going to a team he'll fit in great with and obviously has a chance to do something special."

Ben Rohrbach

Stevens met with Rondo shortly after the trade went down, thanked him for his service to the Celtics and wished him the best in Dallas.

Ben Rohrbach

Brad Stevens on @GreshandZo: "Obviously, this is one of the hard parts about this job. … It was tough last night."

Steve Bulpett

The three new #celtics did not arrive in time for shootaround. Their playing status is uncertain for tonight vs #timberwolves

Mavs just got a big time player in the truest sense of the word. Good luck to Rajon in Dallas . #rondo

On the bright side, there are 2 potential franchise cornerstone centers in the 2015 NBA draft: Duke's Jahlil Okafor & Kentucky's Karl Towns.

Mark Murphy

Here's the new player number rundown: Brandan Wright 12, Jae Crowder 99, Jameer Nelson 28.

Chris Forsberg

Crowder only third to wear 99, first since Darko; Nelson first with 28 since Mickael Pietrus. Wright takes digits right off Dwight Powell.

Brian Robb

Celtics announce new player numbers: Brandan Wright: 12 Jameer Nelson: 28 Jae Crowder: 99 No word if they will be available tonight.

Gary Washburn

Brandan Wright will wear 12, Jameer Nelson 28 and Jae Crowder 99 for #Celtics

NBA TV knocks Nets-Orlando off its Jan. 2 schedule and picks up Rondo vs. Celtics. #eventhoughvitorhasbeenwaived

Chris Forsberg

NBA TV has added Mavs-Celtics (Rondo's return) to its schedule. Boston gets a taste of national TV Rondo.

Jay King

This was Rajon Rondo's most breathtaking assist with the Boston Celtics: masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Kevin Eastman

Many complain about what they don't have. But they should think more about what they don't do; what they don't learn; how they don't grow!

Jay King

Cool. RT @ESPNBoston: Boston Celtics assistant gets larceny charge dismissed es.pn/1v85dCN

Jared Weiss

Never would’ve guessed a Rajon Rondo trade analysis would serve as a tribute to Dave Brubeck. Props @Zach Lowe: grantland.com/the-triangle/r…

Jay King

Also really interested to see if Rondo still has that extra gear. If he does, man, the Mavericks could be scary. Otherwise...

Rich Levine

Gary Dzen

NFL coaches. They're just like us.

Gary Washburn

Celtics didn’t get enough in Rajon Rondo trade bostonglobe.com/sports/2014/12… via @BostonGlobe

Jay King

Also, no matter how this changes the Celtics, my job got less interesting last night. Rondo is a lot of things. Boring was never one.

Jay King

The Mavericks will really, really miss Wright. Will be neat to see whether he can produce in similar fashion for Boston.

Gary Dzen

Don't rub it in. RT @ESPNStatsInfo: Rajon Rondo was the last member of the Celtics 2007-08 championship roster still with the team.

Gary Dzen

I wrote about a confusing, dizzying year in sports: bit.ly/1C7rOnM

Jay King

Also, that trade wasn't great for Tyler Zeller. Lost a load of easy buckets and no longer the best finisher or rim protector on the team.

Jay King

It's probably too early, but is Evan Turner a starting point guard in the NBA now?

Jameer Nelson

I want to take the Dallas fans for your support. And also thank the Boston Fans...this is part of my journey in life... Truly Blessed

While you were sleeping, @Tom_NBA took an in-depth look at both sides of the Rondo deal. Did Boston get enough? celticshub.com/2014/12/19/raj…

Ben Rohrbach

Should we tell Shaughnessy Rondo was SINGING F'ING CHRISTMAS CAROLS AT BOSTON CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL the day he was traded or leave it alone?

Ben Rohrbach

Shaughnessy, basically: I wasn't around Rondo a lot … but what the heck, I'll assassinate his character anyway!

Ben Rohrbach

Seriously, no more Rondo, Serial or Colbert Report. Now, I actually have to spend time with my family around the holidays.
