    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    I think Semi is more vulnerable but still makes the roster. TL has way too much potential. The Celtics would have too many new players/rookies if they got rid of Semi for a Green or Strus IMO. The team needs some continuity and Semi is cheap, familiar with the system and strong. By Dec 15th...

    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    So many good feelings with these Celtics. All these rookies are on fire (Edwards, Waters, Grant, etc), Brown/Tatum looking like they are taking the next step, Kemba in full Kumbaya mode, Hayward fully healthy, Theis taking over the 5, Kanter fine with playing 2nd unit minutes, etc, etc, etc...

    Agree with the bolded. Danny/Brad may have made Strus and his agent some promises when they initially signed Max to the 2-way. The cost difference between cutting Green and Strus is something like $300K? Heck, they'll do that in one telecast w/Tacko & Co lighting it up this season. CNBC Sports...

    At that distance, he is basically unguardable. I don't care if its a preseason game against the hapless Cavs or a Bucks playoff game. 30" is insane. Rule 1 for the 2nd unit, set screens/picks for Arsen, and get the man in rhythm. Let Enis chase down any of his misses on the off boards. That was...

    I'm guessing Strus is the casualty here. Green is explosive and it's showed every time he has stepped on the court in Vegas/pre-season for the Celtics. Do Brad/Danny take a week to figure this out? OR do they inform Green or Strus tomorrow who they've decided on so the guy cut could possibly...

    JRich, Thybulle, Simmons, Embiid, Horford is a good start

    Get Delly back in there so he can take his medicine.

    Game. Set. Match Welcome to the Celtics: Javonte Green. If they could move Semi for salary and a 2022 2nd rounder I'd do it so they could keep both Green and Strus. Green could easily replace Semi, and then some. Tony Allen-esque

    Edwards, Grant, TL, Poirier, Semi, Wannamaker, Waters, Fall, Green, Strus, Langford (injured?) I hope the Cavs play their starters, Edwards torching Dellavedova will be priceless

    I also love me some Waters but I'd rather see him get tons of minutes at Maine instead of splinters in Boston for 8 weeks. If he absolutely lights it up in Maine then Wannamaker is added ballast in a Dec 15th trade deal. ALSO If the team gets stricken with injuries at PG, Tre's only a phone...

    I'm fine with the Celtics filling out their deep bench with cheap vets that understand the system and can play defense. Semi and Wannamaker fill the roles of #12/13 on the roster fine, not sure what we can expect there at that price. They are no Yabusele's
