NBC Sports Boston’s Celtics coverage team has undergone several changes since the start of last season, but a familiar face is returning. Abby Chin will host pregame and postgame coverage, and will be in the role when the Celtics open the preseason Tuesday night against the Sixers. “It means so much to me,” said Chin, who lost her job as sideline reporter due to wide-ranging layoffs by NBC Sports Boston’s parent company in August. “Over the years I’ve been interested in that role, and now, coming back after everything that happened, I feel like I’ve been allowed to have an even bigger role.”

Zach Lowe: As @wojespn just said on TV, it does not appear in canvassing the league there will be any Ben Simmons trade tonight — or that the Sixers are close to one. We’ll see how long this lingers.
