I wonder if all that flexibility will allow them to move Bradley back to PG. But then again, isn't Bradley playing the 2 part of the reason they let Allen go? Not quite sure what they're going to do cause right now they have Bradley, Terry, Lee and Christmas. Obviously Christmas probably won't play so they'll be going with a 3 player rotation at the 2 guard, could be packed when Bradley gets back, wonder if anyone ends up unhappy with court time.

I think this really allows Terry to be the primary ball handler on the second unit. So Dooling can be the third string 1 and 2. Depth never hurts, especially not with an older core.

What do you mean? They've brought back who they needed to and upgraded weaker depth positions.

Absolutely. All things considered, this is still a could depth signing for cheap money.

Keyon Dooling retired yesterday.


from slamonline.com:

Somewhat surprisingly, Keyon Dooling has elected to call his NBA career quits. This, after Dooling inked a one-year deal to return to the Celtics over the summer. From the Boston Herald: “Keyon has decided that he has given the NBA twelve good years and that it’s time to pursue other interests and spend more time with his family,’ Dooling’s representative Kenge Stevenson said in a release from the team. ‘He will never forget his time in Boston with the Celtics.’ Dooling averaged just 4 points per game last season, but the 12-year veteran was a valuable locker room presence. Dooling grew close to point guard Rajon Rondo and had a respected voice among teammates. Forward Brandon Bass famously credited a ‘sermon from Reverend Dooling’ for propelling the Celtics to a win in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Philadelphia last season. ‘We’ll miss Keyon’s spirit and energy, both on and off the court,’ Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said. ‘The whole Celtics family wishes him well as he enters the next phase of his life.’ Dooling was signed to a veteran minimum contract. Training camp opens a week from Saturday in Waltham. Dooling, who served as the vice president of the NBA Players Association, figures to have a bright future in basketball if he decides to become a coach or an executive. But he also has other business outside of the game that he could pursue.”

like the Darko pickup- guys done little other than the Harry Potter series since being the second overall pick.

Looking forward to taking in a couple of Celtics games this Fall before the boys return in late November.

Darko can play. He is not a regular, but he is a solid big off the bench. Solid shot blocker.

So barring any more moves this looks like how the Celtics 15 man roster will look to start the 2012-13 season:

PF - Brandon Bass, Jared Sullinger, Chris Wilcox
SF - Paul Pierce, Jeff Green, Kris Joseph
C - Kevin Garnett, Jason Collins, Darko Milicic, Fab Melo
PG - Rajon Rondo, Courtney Lee
SG - Avery Bradley, Jason Terry, Dionte Christmas or Jamar Smith

remember, C's now solely operate their D-League franchise in Portland, BB, so likely there will be more than fifteen players at any given time

new coach too for the Red Claws as Mike Taylor comes from Rio Grande Valley (Hou); as Austin Ainge was promoted to Director of Player Development

There was, but I think they allotted the money to Lee and Terry, so I think he's gone. Very little chance he comes back, unless there is no market for him at all.


Also, I think Christmas gets a spot over Jamar Smith. Smith may play in Maine, but Joseph and Christmas get spots 14 and 15.

Apparently Pierce and KG will retire in 2015. Jet just signed a 3 year deal this summer here, so one would think he could join them.

This makes me sad. Can't they play forever?
