Boston Celtics Offseason Press Release
The celebrating of the Celtics 17th World Championship is over and the off season has begun, and the Celtics have been busy. We were ecstatic to add Keith Bogans via the draft and Samuel Dalambert via trade before Free Agency began.
We had flexibility due to nearly the entire Championship squad being up for Free Agency, we made (what we thought) was the easy decision to resign 3x Dunk Contest Participant (hey if you keep inviting him he'll keep showing up), Eddie Jones. Now the decisions get tougher, we unfortunately had to say goodbye to one of the anchors for our team last year, Gary Payton. We gave it a great shot offering him a long term deal with a total value nearly tripling what he agreed to in New York, but it seemed in his best interest to take a much larger (in the short term) contract for 1 year. But when one door closes another opens, and we are beyond thrilled to have Baron Davis in a Celtic jersey. We knew from the get go he wanted to play for a winner. We are a team that prides itself on defense having, and a two-time All Defense Second Teamer is what we wanted and we went out and paid for it. The decisions will get tougher, but we are ready to go out and fill out the roster. Any Questions?
