Walter McCarty agreed to a three-year contract to remain as a Celtics assistant coach under Brad Stevens. Deals for other assistants are also in the works. Though McCarty made no secret of his desire to move into a head coaching position — he sought the Boston College job earlier this year — he is thoroughly pleased both with his current job and its location. “I’m excited just to know that I’m going to be here another three years and continue to work with the guys and work with Brad and our staff and Danny (Ainge),” McCarty said. “This is a great organization to work for, and I think we have a lot of chemistry on our staff. I think we have a lot of good things going for us, so I’m excited about being here.” Boston Herald

The Boston Celtics announced today that they have re-signed guard Avery Bradley to a multi-year contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. “We see Avery as a key part of our chase of Banner 18,” said Danny Ainge, Celtics President of Basketball Operations. "He keeps getting better and is still far from reaching his ceiling. We're ecstatic to have him back." NBA.com

Humphries is expected to sign a three-year, $13 million contract. The Wizards and Celtics are finalizing the details of the sign-and-trade agreement. ESPN.com

But sources said repeatedly that choice No. 1 is to find an impact player to pair with Rondo, though that appears quite a longshot. The Timberwolves haven’t taken their bait on Love, and Ainge hasn’t been able to get involved in other major scenarios. Boston Herald

In another rumor killer, colleague Mark Murphy learned yesterday that Avery Bradley will be back in town today to take his physical and sign his new four-year contract. Those acts will end speculation that the Celtics were holding off on signing him so he could be part of a trade. According to representative Mitchell Butler the “hold-up”, if you can call it that, came because he and the C’s were simply trying to iron out the language and the terms. The deal will still be a fairly straightforward $32 million pact, with escalating salaries beginning in the low $7-plus million range. Boston Herald
