Zach Lowe: I heard the Lakers were adamantly opposed to — ‘We are not hardcapping ourselves, we’re just not doing that to our in-season flexibility, we want to maintain our options’. And that precludes Kyle Lowry being signed and traded — anyone you want to sign and trade to the Lakers, it precludes from happening.

Boston Celtics: Brad Stevens on Robert Williams: “He’s a huge part of our opportunity to be great. I think that that’s obvious … Rob does give us a different dynamic with his ability to play way above the rim on both ends of the floor.”
Jay King: Brad Stevens on Joe Mazzulla: “I think when you consider the position he was thrust into and the overall accomplishments of the group, I thought he did a really good job.”
Adam Himmelsbach: Not a huge surprise, but everything I’ve heard the last few days points to Joe Mazzulla being back with the Celtics next year.
Jay King: Brad Stevens: “We have a good staff.” He said the Celtics tried to replace at least one of the coaches they lost but “that was just to be supplemental.” Obviously they didn’t hire anyone as a replacement. Stevens said the Cs will make at least one addition to the coaching staff.
