Training camp Rumors

In the stands across the gym, Celtics coach Brad Stevens took in the scene with a smile. Part of the reason that Stevens was thrilled to have four players participating in Team USA’s training camp this week was that his guys got hands-on experience working with championship coaches Popovich and Kerr. “I just think it’s always great to hear consistent themes and messages all across the board,” said Stevens. “Obviously, nobody’s a better communicator, nobody does that better than [Popovich]. It’s great for these guys.”
