    Iverson will play in Europe this year.

     

    Pressey might make the team.

    Olynyk is the only quality player on that team.

    Not sure about Tony Mitchell.

    Though there has been talk that Iverson will delay his NBA acclimation by playing in Europe next season, the 7-foot rookie arrived yesterday with a mindset of deflecting any mention of that possibility.

    “As of right now, it’s been a discussion, but I’m trying to be part of the (Celtics) organization,” he said. “They drafted me for a reason.”

    It wasn't too long ago that scouts touted Phill Pressey as a can't-miss point guard prospect with a bright NBA future. I'm excited to see if he can blossom for the Celtics and maybe be that legitimate backup point guard the Celtics have lacked the last several years.

    Not exactly - he's 6'8"/6'9", has better body control, better finisher with either hand, seems to have a jump shot, so all in all, not a Tony Allen-type. Mitchell has a better all around game, but he's not in the league (yet?) and TA is.

    Totally. 

    I'm a huge Rondo fan and I don't expect Rondo to be replaced. But I've seen Presseys game and it is astounding. This kis has skill, I really hope Danny keeps him.

     

    The biggest issue now is spots on the roster. Dannys got a lot of work to do. We can't have three non-Celtics taking up spots that could be given to prospects, now that we have no urgency to win.

    Wallace, Humphries, Bogans, Brooks, Joseph. Thats five spots with this trade. I hope we can find a new home for Hump right away. Maybe we can package Brooks & Wallace in a deal?

    I'd keep Brooks until it's determined that he's not having a breakout year.  He's young and hasn't had the amount of consistent pt that would give him a positive comfort level. This might be the right coach for him. The rest?  Bye-bye.
