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.

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.

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.
