While the NBA offseason has slowed down a little bit, there's still plenty to talk about with the Boston Celtics. Kyle Draper and A. Sherrod Blakely quickly hit on the recent discussion on what the events would need to be for the C's to dream about trading for Anthony Davis. Also, while the roster seems to be in place, is Danny Ainge done? He told our Tom Giles last week that the team might not be done, and Sherrod throws out a player that is still available.
For this week's interview, we dial up Tommy Heinsohn to chat about the flurry of changes to the roster, including what he saw in rookie Jayson Tatum at Summer League. Also, Tommy talks about where Paul Pierce ranks in Celtics history.
A Lonzo Ball-Rajon Rondo backcourt?
Or, more likely, the veteran point guard tutoring the rookie.
The ex-Celtics point guard could be joining their longtime rival, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Rondo met with Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson on Tuesday.
The Lakers signed free agent guard Kenatvious Caldwell-Pope and drafted Ball with the second overall pick. Rondo, 31, was released by the Chicago Bulls June 30 after averaging an underwhelming eight points and less than seven assists per game in the regular season.
He bounced back against his old team in the playoffs, with 11.5 points, 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds in two victories over the Celtics in the first-round series before he missed the final four games of the series (all Boston wins) with a broken thumb.
Paul George tells Sports Illustrated that his love for the Lakers has been "overstated" and that if the Thunder reach the conference finals, "I'd be dumb to want to leave." Click here for more.
