Up until recently, Caris LeVert was set to be one of the more desirable names in an underwhelming 2020 NBA free agency class. But the Nets didn’t want to take any chances with him on the open market, so they came to terms on a three-year extension worth $52.5 million, according to ESPN ’s Adrian...

The Celtics officially ended the Guerschon Yabusele experiment in Boston back on July 10 when the team waived him. But the 16th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft isn’t calling it quits. Though it looks like his NBA career will at least be put on pause for now. Sportando is reporting the 23-year-...

Draymond Green was one of the better players lined up to hit free agency next summer. The Warriors made sure he didn’t have a chance to test the market, giving him a four-year extension on Saturday. The 2020 NBA free agent class already had a limited amount of talent, with Anthony Davis being the...

The 2020 NBA free agent class isn’t expected to be anything special. Denver extended Jamal Murray (five years, $170 million) this offseason, taking one of the few prominent names off the board. The 76ers gave Ben Simmons the same max deal — which seems like money well spent and in no way a mistake...

A recent report indicated the Celtics weren’t too pleased with Al Horford being tampered with prior to the NBA’s Free Agency Moratorium — even though the Celtics began their pursuit of Kemba Walker well before the official June 30 start date. Of course, with Horford ending up in Philadelphia, it...

At Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter’s introductory press conference, Danny Ainge said they were the Celtics ’ “ Plan A .” That makes sense for Walker, because Kyie Irving made it clear right from the start that he wanted out of Boston. But what about bringing in Enes Kanter and losing Al Horford? It...

In the course of the Celtics' attempt to bounce back from Al Horford’s departure from the roster, one of the post players Boston reportedly acquired was Vincent Poirier. The 6-foot-11 25-year-old played in the NBA Summer League in 2017 for the Magic and again last summer for the Nets, but did not...

This year’s NBA offseason has been one of the craziest in the league’s history. There’s a good chance it stands alone as the single craziest. Kevin Durant partnered up with Kyrie Irving, Utah is a contender in a loaded Western Conference and Oklahoma City’s two best players requested trades to play...

Former Celtics center Al Horford was officially introduced as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday. Horford’s run in Boston ended after he didn’t pick up his option for 2019-20, then proceeded to look at opportunities elsewhere. The Celtics’ rival came knocking and signed Horford to a four-...

With Guerschon Yabusele gone, it seemed like the 15th spot on the Celtics roster was a simple decision. Slide Tacko Fall in. But as much as there’s promise there, he still needs to get some work in the G League, and Boston already used both of its two-way contracts on Max Strus and Tremont Waters...
