Kyrie Irving has been traded to the Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick. There's no such thing as an offseason in the NBA. For the Celtics, they finally have their face of the franchise in Irving and he's under contract for the next two seasons with a player option for the third. Irving had a 41.7 usage rate when LeBron James was off the floor last season, so it's going to be exciting to see what kind of numbers he puts up as the clear alpha dog. He looks like a rock-solid pick at the start of the second round in standard drafts and you could even make an argument to take him at the end of the first.

The Celtics and Cavs have engaged in active trade discussions centered on Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas, according to Shams Charania of The Verticle. With a treasure trove of draft picks, Boston can probably offer Cleveland the most attractive package in any deal for Irving, and Thomas would fit in nicely in the Cavs' system. Irving might see some more shot opportunities in Boston, but it likely wouldn't be a dramatic uptick in usage with Al Horford and Gordon Hayward also needing the rock. Still, he should still be able to work at a top-25 evaluation as a member of the Celtics. As for Thomas, it wouldn't be the best landing spot due to the presence of Derrick Rose, but he'd still very likely be an early-round guy.

Marcus Morris    F  Celtics

 

 

The court date for Markieff and Marcus Morris, each facing a pair of aggravated assault charges stemming from an incident in 2015, has been set for August 28. The Morris twins were allegedly involved in an altercation that left the victim, Erik Hood, with a broken nose, abrasions and a large bump on his head. Hood told police that he was assaulted by four men, including Markieff and Marcus. Per the CSN NE report, "A conviction could potentially result in jail time – each of the aggravated assault charges carries a maximum jail sentence of 3 ¾ years – in addition to a 10-game suspension under Article VI, Section 7 of the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement."

Jae Crowder    F  Celtics

 

 

Coach Brad Stevens said that he believes Jae Crowder and Gordon Hayward will "play really well together." Since the Celtics signed Hayward, there has been concern that Crowder would see his role reduced dramatically. However, Stevens is confident that won't be an issue. "We think that those guys are both really good players that can play together," said Stevens. "I’m really excited about it. Those guys will not only get along great because they both love the game, they both love to compete, but I think they’ll play really well together." Crowder will see his usage rate and shots attempts dip next season, but is still expected to post solid, all-around fantasy stats.

Isaiah Thomas    G  Celtics

 

 

Brad Stevens revealed during a recent interview that the Celtics won't have an official timetable for Isaiah Thomas (hip) until he undergoes another scan in early-September. "He has another follow-up and another scan in the early part of September," said Stevens of Thomas. "Obviously, it’s been a lot of appropriate rest, a lot of rehab. There have been some good strides here certainly in the last month or few weeks, but we’re not going to know that until after that early September timeframe." Thomas opted to let the labral tear in his right hip heal naturally, which has involved a fairly lengthy recovery period, but most reports up to this point have indicated that he'll be ready for camp.

Daniel Dixon    G  Celtics

 

 

The Celtics have signed College of William and Mary product Daniel Dixon. It's fully expected to be a partially-guaranteed deal and brings Boston's roster to 20 players, the training camp limit. The undrafted guard has nice size with a 6'6" frame and put up averages of 19.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists as a senior. Expect him to end up in the G-League at the conclusion of camp.

Paul Pierce    F  Celtics

 

 

The Celtics will retire Paul Pierce's No. 34 after the Cavs game on Feb. 11. He was a Celtic from 1998-2013 and brought home a title with a Finals MVP to go with it. His name is all over the Celtics record book, ranking first in free throws, 3-pointers, and steals while coming in at No. 2 for total points (John Havlicek).
