Top Celtics News

  • Celtics' Enes Kanter: Returning to Boston

    Kanter agreed to a one-year deal with the Celtics on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Before the 2020-21 campaign, Kanter was shipped from Boston to Portland. The 2011 No. 3 overall pick appeared in 72 games for the Blazers and averaged 11.2 points and 11.0 rebounds in 24.4 minutes per game. He is now back in Boston, where he averaged 8.1 points and 7.4 rebounds across 16.9 minutes per game during the 2019-20 season. Kanter will compete with recently acquired Al Horford for backup minutes behind Robert Williams. Chances are, he'll have a smaller role than the one he held in Portland last season, as Kanter's minutes were boosted by injury to Jusuf Nurkic.

  • Celtics' Yam Madar: Will play for Celtics this season

    Madar will join the Celtics this season after spending 2020-21 overseas playing in Israel.

    Madar was selected with the 47th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft and spent last season overseas with Hapoel Tel Aviv, where he averaged 16.5 points, 5.1 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 32.4 minutes. Madar will presumably be fighting for depth guard minutes with Kris Dunn, Tremont Waters and Carsen Edwards.

  • Celtics' Moses Brown: Sent to Dallas

    Brown was traded from the Celtics to the Mavericks on Saturday in the deal that sent Josh Richardson to Boston, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The Mavericks were able to shed some money in the deal and also bring in a promising young center in Brown. He had a breakout season last year and averaged 8.6 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 21.4 minutes with the Thunder. He could see a similar workload with Dallas in 2021-22.

  • Celtics' Josh Richardson: Dealt to Boston

    The Celtics are finalizing a trade Friday to acquire Richardson from the Mavericks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Boston sends Moses Brown to Dallas in the deal.

    Since Richardson already exercised his $11.6 million player option for the 2021-22 season, Dallas was likely eager to move on from him for a light return after a disappointing season with the Mavericks. Richardson will be heading to his third team in as many seasons after spending the first four years of his professional career in Miami. Both his tenures in Philadelphia and Dallas were relatively underwhelming compared to expectations, so the 27-year-old will now look for a fresh start in Boston. The Celtics will likely continue to tweak their roster once free agency opens, making it difficult to project what kind of minutes load Richardson can expect in Boston. He'll most likely wind up vying for a second-unit spot on the wing.

  • Celtics' Bruno Fernando: Shipped to Boston

    Fernando, along with Kris Dunn and a 2023 second-round draft pick, was traded from the Hawks to the Celtics on Friday for Tristan Thompson, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Fernando is essentially a throw-in for this trade, as the headline is Thompson for Dunn. Fernando joins a crowded center rotation in Boston. It's doubtful he sees regular action.

  • Celtics' Kris Dunn: Moved to Boston

    Dunn, plus a 2023 second-round pick and Bruno Fernando, was traded by the Hawks to the Celtics on Friday for Tristan Thompson, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    With the Celtics swapping out Kemba Walker for Al Horford and Moses Brown in the offseason, Boston suddenly became deep at center and barren at point guard. With this trade, some of that imbalance is relieved. Dunn played just four games for Atlanta last season, as he dealt with a bothersome ankle injury. However, he's proven to be one of the best defensive guards in the league. In 2019-20 with the Bulls, he averaged 2.0 steals per game in 24.9 minutes while also contributing 7.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists. He'll be fighting for backcourt minutes primarily with Payton Pritchard.

  • Celtics' Moses Brown: Will play in Summer League

    Brown will play for the Celtics' Summer League team, Brian Robb of The Springfield Republican reports.

    In June, Brown was traded to Boston in the deal that also sent Al Horford to the Celtics and resulted in Kemba Walker going to the Thunder. He had a surprising 2020-21 season once given extended run in OKC, and he averaged 8.6 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 21.4 minutes. He'll look to get some more experience by playing in Summer League.

  • Celtics' Juhann Begarin: Likely to stay in France

    Begarin is expected to remain in France for the 2021-22 season, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    Begarin was the 45th overall pick. He's been playing in France and is expected to stay there for at least this upcoming season. Begarin's Paris squad, Paris Basketball, was promoted this off-season from the Pro B to the Pro A league of the LNB, which is particularly convenient for Bagerin's development.

  • Celtics' Sam Hauser: Headed to Boston

    Hauser signed a two-way contract with the Celtics on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Hauser spent three years at Marquette before transferring to Virginia for his final collegiate season. The 6-foot-8 wing shot over 40.0 percent from three during all four years in college, including a season-high 48.7 percent during his sophomore campaign. The 23-year-old's shooting ability should translate well to the NBA game.

  • Celtics' Juhann Begarin: Goes to Boston with No. 45

    Begarin was selected by the Celtics with the 45th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

    Begarin is a long-armed wing who will add depth for the Celtics at the guard position. The Frenchman played well in his final season in Paris as he averaged 11.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.4 steals in 26.8 minutes in the French Pro B League. He shot the ball exceptionally well, making 45.6 percent of his attempts from the field and 34.3 percent from beyond the arc. If he comes over to the NBA next season, the 18-year-old is highly unlikely to have much of an impact and will probably spend most of the season in the G League. Unless he proves himself in Summer League, expect Boston to urge Begarin to play one more season overseas.
