HoopsHype Jared Sullinger rumors

Last summer, Sullinger was not cleared for full basketball activity and he was unable to work himself into premium shape. This summer will be different because Sullinger is fully recovered. “It’s very exciting because I get to develop and find out who I can be,” he said. “We’ll see. Hopefully, I’ll have some hobbies — working out and conditioning — I can carry over for the next four months.” When asked whether he would like to follow Love’s physical path, Sullinger said: “We’ll see. It will be a totally different Jared Sullinger coming back next year. Summertime is the time to figure out your game, you watch a lot of film. I have a lot of free time and with that free time, a lot of conditioning, a lot of weightlifting, and a lot of basketball.” Boston Globe

Celtics forward Jared Sullinger has put together the best stretch of his young career, averaging 21.3 points and 13.0 rebounds in his last three games. Sullinger had struggled with a hand injury for much of January, and averaged just 11.5 points on 37.2 percent shooting. He credited a chat with his dad for the turnaround. “He said my body language sucked and my attitude sucked,” Sullinger explained. “And he said that’s not what got you here, and he pretty much tried to whoop me back to shape.” Sporting News

“So the draft is really important, and now we have a lot of assets. Draft picks are always tradable. Sometimes players aren’t always tradable, once they expose themselves on the court. Draft picks almost always are tradable. But development is really important for us, and I’m happy with the development of Kelly Olynyk and Phil Pressey and Jared Sullinger and Vitor (Faverani). Vitor has been a little inconsistent, which you’d expect with inconsistent minutes and a guy coming from playing European ball his whole life. It’s a whole different life.” Boston Herald

Reached this morning, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said the team will appeal to the league for a reversal on the second of two Flagrant 1 fouls called on Jared Sullinger last night during the Celts' 129-98 loss to the Nuggets. Sullinger, who is just one Flagrant 1 foul away from a game suspension, after the two called against him last night in a 23-second span in the third quarter, was called for the first Flagrant 1 when he knocked J.J. Hickson to the floor on a drive to the basket. The second was called when Kenneth Faried absorbed a Sullinger elbow to the chin as the Celts big man attempted a turnaround jumper. Boston Herald

Boston Celtics center Jared Sullinger aggravated a left-hand injury while falling to the TD Garden floor in the first half of Tuesday's 92-91 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. Sullinger landed hard on his hand, one that he noted earlier this week has a deep bone bruise and sprained ligaments, after going up with a shot in traffic. The injury has lingered since late November when he originally injured the non-shooting hand during a game in Charlotte. ESPN.com
