Wesley Matthews locked now for a year. Now Montrezl Harrell is locked in for 2 years to replace Dwight who's off to Philly. Nice fiesty centre and to poach him off the Clippers is extra sweet.

So far:

IN: D.Schroder, W.Matthews and M. Harrell
OUT: D.Howard and D.Green

Rondo appears gone. Hopefully retain Avery Bradley and KCP. McGee has opted in and AD likely to re-sign.

Good off season so far, for the champs.....champs....champs....champs. Woohoo, sounds good to say that.

Love that we did that to the Clippers. That’s an automatic win right there.

We need to sure up the defensive side of things now. Re-signing KCP and AB would just about nail it.

I was excited about Bogdan for a while but that seems like a pipe dream now.

Okay so we’ve completed our roster for now

PG: Schroder - Caruso - Cook
SG: Matthews - KCP - THT
SF: LeBron - Kuzma - McKinnie
PF: Davis - Morris - Dudley
C: Gasol - Harrell

With one more roster spot to be filled at buyout time

I’m very happy with how we’ve shaped up, a more complete-looking roster than last years for sure. The Schroder/Trezz additions are huge

Yep that line-up looks good provided Gasol can still defend.
They could start
James, KCP, Mathews, Davis and Gasol.
Then have three bench scorers in Harrell, Schroder and Kuzma rotating through. Schroder, Davis, Harrell, James and Kuzma could be the finishing line-up.

One game in and I see a something. Cohesion is going to be an issue for this team. Hope not. Let’s see.

Treez needs to be created for, not happening yet. Kuz is still looking for a role. Dump into Davis and go is a thing. Gasol can’t defend anymore and can’t finish at the basket. DS already talking about pace. Miss Green as a glue guy.

Slow start to the season coming...

Watch the Lakers versus Spurs. Marc Gasol might not be setting the world on fire in terms of scoring but he's still a great fit as he's a terrific passer who can also hover around the three point line and create space.

Looking very good atm.....If KCP can keep up his 3 point shooting than we’re in an even better position, hopefully we continue to manage Lebron & A.D’s minutes so we’re fresh again come playoffs.

AD looking like a man amongst boys against Bulls. Everyone else doing their thing! DNP Coaches decision for Morris? Even with those junk minutes?

Already looking forward to Thursday, the 76ers pose a challenge for us, should be able to handle the Cavs with ease providing Sexton doesn’t get easy looks to shoot like the Nets gave him.

Just wanted to share this with you all on a very sad anniversary.

It's almost unprecedented in world sports that such bitter and fierce rivals have also so much mutual respect for each other.

Us (Celtics Nation) still mourn and grieve over the loss of Kobe and Gigi.

I love the fact Jayson Tatum has a photo of Kobe As his Twitter cover photo.

Thank you Mamba for all the memories. And I am so sorry Gigi's promising young life was cut tragically short, she would have been an a superstar in the WNBA no doubt.

I love Kuzma for these Lakers! Stretches the floor, so versatile and not ball dominant. Perfect for a Bron team! So much hate for him, especially by Laker faithful but I love “The Boy Who Lived”
