Just now at 8pm at the start of the Red Sox - Rangers Game on ESPN it was announced on the Players Tribune that Hayward will be going to Boston for 4 years, $128 million. So maybe now it's done

The Players' Tribune is athlete-penned editorials and articles, so yeah, it's done.

My cousin and I had a bet today. He said Woj would break it, I said it would come from Player's Tribune. I got bingo

I hope we dont trade Smart but if Hayward wanted a max contract we cant just trade Rozier and have to ditch a core player.

Sucks we are losing Kelly but it could be very interesting to see how this team does next year. We have so many Wings now it's a bit nuts.

Anyone watch the summer league game the other night?
My guy to watch is Zizic.
We know Brown can play, and I think we know Tatum can score at this level, but at this point, Zizic is kind of an important piece.
C's have no backup bigs with any NBA experience.
It's Zizic and Yabousele in that role battling for 2nd team minutes.
I know I heard he was raw, but I have to say I was a little disappointed.
Just the way he plays (or at least how they positioned him the other night), he looks nothing like a Brad Stevens player.
Possession after possession, it was run down the floor, put his butt in the defender on the block, and try to carve out some space.
He had some advanced footwork, but was basically on the block except with the occasional pick-and-roll.
He did have a nice drive in the 3rd quarter where he drew a foul.

Cs finishing up a deal of Avery Bradley to Pistons for Marcus Morris. This will allow them the salary room to sign Hayward as Morris is on a very reasonable contract with 2 ears left at 5m per yr.

Morris looks like a stretch 4 who offers little help defensively. Not much of a rebounder either. 14ppg 4.5rpg in 32mpg last yr.

Fine addition i suppose. Hopefully Stevens can get the most out of him.

Its unfortunate to lose him, but we had to shred some cash and got a respectable player in return.

I think Morris is a great fit to fill Amir's spot in the starting lineup.
Amir was a better rebounder, but not significantly so.
I believe Morris is a 36% 3 pointer shooter for his career, which should be a nice upgrade for a Steven's offense.
Should get plenty of open looks with IT and now Hayward.

I agree with you - I thought Ainge fleeced Detroit in this trade, considering that most of the league knew the Celtics had to trade Bradley, Smart or Crowder. Morris is a useful player, and I didn't think the Celtics would get much for Bradley's expiring contract, especially since they were under pressure to make a deal. (I also think this allows the Celtics to move Smart or Crowder at some point this year, if Brown and/or Tatum are contributing.)

Saturday's Summer League Observations and Results.....

- Tatum looks great. In a win over the Lakers and Lonzo Ball Tatum 33 min, 27 points, 11 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 TO, 9-19 FG, 1-1 on 3PG, 8-8 FT. Guy I wanted at #1 and Danny Ainge could be looking very good once this Upcoming Rookie Year season ends. Could end up a very astute move to unload that #1 pick to move to #3 to get the guy he wanted anyway.
- Semi Ojeleye, the Duke Transfer to SMU who played 1 year for the Ponies looked great yesterday. 29 minutes, 19 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 TO, 6-13 FG, 5-9 on 3PG, 2-4 FT. Semi shot 42.4% for SMU on threes last year. Celtics took Ojeleye with the 37th Pick in the Draft this year

- Munford with a nice game with Golden State yesterday. He started the game, 18 min, 6 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 2 TO, 2-5 FG, 2-2 on 3FG. Finished with a +14. Playing against the much acclaimed Fultz who played 15 min, 8 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 TO, only 3-12 FG, 0-3 on 3FG, 2-4 FT and finished with a -16
- A10 Davidson's Jack Gibbs played well for Minnesota. 19 min, 17 points, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 TO, 7-12 FG, 3-7 on 3FG,
- Caleb Swanigan of Portland I thought went too low in the draft. 28 minutes, 16 points, 13 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 TO, 4-12 FG, 1-3 on 3FG, 7-8 FT. Portland plays the Celtics tonight at 8:30 on ESPN2
- Kris Dunn now at Chicago. 30 minutes, 11 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 TO, 3-12 FG, 1-3 on 3FG, 4-4 FT but finished with a woeful -24

A couple days late on this but did anyone notice Brandon Austin is on the Sixers summer league roster. That guy just keeps getting chances.

Tatum looks awesome. I hope the Celtics hang onto the 2018 BK pick and the LA/Sacto pick and keep putting young talent around Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.

Ojeleye really impressed the Celtics
Not bad for a 2nd round pick to sign a 4 year contract.

Is it weird that that part made me the most nervous too? haha. Thomas' hip injury scares the hell out of me, so I'm happy dealing him while he's still at peak value, and before the Celtics had to make a decision about whether to give him a max. Even if Irving doesn't want to re-sign, two years of him, or one year plus whatever you can flip him for next year, I think that's worth the pick, Thomas and Crowder (kind of redundant given the other players on the roster now).

Here's my take, I felt bummed for 20 minutes for Isaiah and crowder who helped the Celtics stay afloat the past few years. That said, IT had one year left, a hurt hip, and wants a huge max deal. Crowder is okay but nothing special, zizic is unknown and a picks a pick. For kyrie, who's 4 years younger then IT, and he's better, plus the Celtics still have the lakers pick next season.

From the Boston Globe:

In the end, however, Irving is an upgrade. He is a marvelous scorer, ball-handler, and finisher on a reasonable contract and he will play with great motivation. He wanted out of Cleveland. He played to oppose James. He wanted a fresh start and he is the cornerstone that Ainge has been chasing for years.
Fans have asked for the past four years when Ainge was going to cash in these draft picks and get that superstar. Well, Tuesday was the night. It happened fast. It was a shocker, and the Celtics are a better team than they were 24 hours ago.

and this is also an informative article, particularly on Ainge....

Nice posted letter...hard not to wish a guy like Isaiah well (until he plays the C's):

And even though I am not at all a Pats fan ...pretty cool thing for Brady to do....
