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

“Well, we won 25 games [last season], so we’ve got to get better in a lot of ways,” Stevens said. “Getting better, it may be personnel moves, but it’s also our current players getting better.” He added, “This offseason is big for the guys that are still there. And then it’s big for us to try to target guys, maybe rim protection is one [area], but I think we’ll continue to target basketball players, guys that can make plays with the ball, can shoot the ball, that kind of thing.” Boston Globe

This is something I’ve been curious about all season — you do all kinds of charity work but always in private and never for publicity. Why? Rajon Rondo: You don’t do charity work for publicity. Well, I know I don’t. Everybody’s different. I feel like if you do stuff like that for charity, it should be from the heart. You don’t have to get exposure for it. The people that you’re doing it for are very grateful. It’s not to get media attention. It’s not to get the NBA behind me. I do it for myself. I do it for the people that need it and I do it because I want to do it. There’s no need for a big media blast. People do that stuff all the time all across the world that you don’t hear about. People volunteer over in foreign countries and do way more stuff than I’m doing. So for me to do what I do, I’m very blessed to be in my situation. I don’t feel like I need any exposure or a pat on the back when I’m doing it. I do it because I want to do it. Boston Globe
