Wyc Grousbeck Rumors
“We put winning ahead of everything else,” said Grousbeck. “Every now and then you’ve got to make room and play the kids and get a Gordon Hayward in free agency, and other times you just try to keep a core together and build onto it. And we’re in the latter stage right now in trying to keep this group together and build onto it as best we can.”
Wyc Grousbeck: “We can’t keep everybody if we’re going to keep adding (because of roster size limitations), but everybody who’s watched this team for 15 years knows what we’re about, and we appreciate everybody watching the team for 15 years. Everybody knows how we’ve run this team for 15 years, and everybody can just watch and wait and see — and you’ll see then. But we live for banners. We live for rings. That’s what we live for.”
#Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck on @985TheSportsHub said he’s hoping to “pay for performance” and “we are prepared to do whatever it takes to win again” when asked if the team will pay deep into the luxury tax to keep this team together in the future.
Adam Kaufman: #Celtics owner Grousbeck (98.5): “We were in the final four last yr, but got bounced. Hard. We changed 11 of 15 guys. That team wasn’t getting us there. … We weren’t anywhere near championship caliber. We got stomped by the Cavs and they pretty much got rolled by the Warriors.”
