The Boston Celtics have claimed free agent forward Jarell Eddie off NBA waivers, a league source told RealGM. Eddie was recently released by the Atlanta Hawks, and he drew multiple waiver bids before the Celtics were awarded his rights. Eddie could be being signed to be released as part of Boston’s allocated players to Maine in the NBA D-League. RealGM

The Boston Celtics continue to operate as planned – and hoped – in their attempt to have Rajon Rondo available for Wednesday’s Opening Night. The star point guard began practicing in minimal-contact drills earlier this week and his hand has held up “great” under the increased workload, according to Brad Stevens. Stevens stated prior to Thursday afternoon’s practice that Rondo will continue to increase his participation in contact drills over the next two days before the Celtics take the weekend off. “The biggest thing over the next few days is determining [if it’s] as healed as it needs to be,” said Stevens. “All indications are that it’s healing really quickly and the surgery was a great success. I think he’s more ready to roll than not.” NBA.com

Boston Celtics assistant coach Walter McCarty was arraigned Thursday in Framingham District Court court on a larceny charge. McCarty, who played 10 seasons in the NBA, including eight with the Celtics, is accused of bouncing checks to a contractor putting in $39,000 worth of cabinets in his home, according to WCVB-TV.

McCarty pleaded not guilty. A pretrial hearing was scheduled for Dec. 11. "This matter stems from ordering some kitchen cabinets for a home that my family and I are building," McCarty said in a statement released by the Celtics. "We hope to resolve the matter soon, but I simply cannot comment further while the case is pending." ESPN.com

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
