“Teams are switching more,” says Danny Ainge, the Celtics GM. “And that means the post-up is still relevant.” Brutalize the switch, and a team may ditch the idea — unshackling the pick-and-roll again. Posting up against mismatches isn’t just for big guys, either. The Rockets know Terry can’t stick with Curry, but they can’t slide him over to Thompson or Harrison Barnes, either. Those guys aren’t high-volume post-up killers, but they’ve shown they’re just polished enough to do back-to-the-basket damage against shrimps. You don’t have to be great. You just have to be competent. That competence has been a crucial ingredient for Golden State in this series against Terry, and in past playoff series against Tony Parker and Ty Lawson. Grantland

One of the teams that could be in the mix for Hunter’s services are the Boston Celtics. The franchise holds the No. 16, 28, 33 and 45 overall picks in the draft and could potentially snag the guard with one of their earlier selections. Hunter is intrigued by the Celtics’ young core and impressed with head coach Brad Stevens. “I love Boston,” Hunter said. “I love what Brad’s doing. He’s a young coach and I grew up watching him. I talked to him yesterday and I’m going to have a workout with them. I’m not sure [when] yet. But I like where they’re moving. They have young talent and know how to play. Kind of like a young [San Antonio] Spurs team in the making.” Basketball Insiders
