Was a minor mistake, but the Celtics dropped the ball on signing Vitor Faverani over Colton Iverson last summer. Iverson could've developed.
The Celtics have traded two captains in a year and a half.
Only one player remains on the Celtics and Lakers rosters from their 2008 & 2010 Finals matchups: Kobe Bryant.
Celtics end up with $12.9 million Traded Player Exception in Rondo deal. Used existing exceptions to absorb Mavs players creating huge TPE.
Between December 28 - January 5, Rondo plays five games: vs. Perk, vs. Pierce, at the Celtics, at LeBron and at KG.
It's just amazing to me that the Celtics got nearly the same return for taking on Marcus Thornton's deal as this Rondo trade.
Celtics now have three 1st round draft picks for both the 2015 and 2016 NBA Drafts. Nine 1st rounders total over the next four drafts.
Source added that Rondo had not told Celtics management of his doubts about Celtics' short term future.
At least you'll always have 2008, Celtics.
I wonder if the Celtics' future draft picks are hanging out with the Sixers' future draft picks. Just sitting there, in draft purgatory.
Don't be surprised if Celtics look to flip Wright. One of the reasons Celtics needed a deal done by Friday.
When Danny made his other December deal (2003), the Celtics next hosted the Flip Saunders-coached Timberwolves. Déjà vu all over again.
Alarming SportVU stat: Celtics FG% off of Rajon Rondo's passes this season: 46 percent. Celtics FG% off of Evan Turner's passes: 50 percent.
That 10th pick, which Boston owns, is likely to get better as Celtics clearly headed toward the tank now. 22nd pick via Mavs may get worse
Have to believe G.M. Danny Ainge is building towards another move. Celtics now have three picks in next June's draft.
After Bos-Dal trade today: Celtics in line to have 10, 22 (via Mavs) & 23 (via LAC) picks in the 2015 draft
Celtics paid lip service to the idea that a Rondo/Marcus Smart backcourt could work long term. That was a pipe dream. It's Smart's team now.
For the first time in the 21st century, the Celtics will not have Paul Pierce or Rajon Rondo on the roster. End of an era.
Celtics pretty pleased with the return they got for Rondo.
Ni Lakers, ni Rockets. Rondo deja los Celtics para jugar en Dallas
Rondo rumbo a Dallas y los Celtics sin sabor.
Brandan Wright will give the celtics much-needed length and athleticism up front. Can be a quality starter with expanded role.
