Celtics are Looking Good Leading up to Summer League & Free Agency

👀 Jayson Tatum is looking pretty good in these videos posted by Chris Forsberg. I guess him and Jaylen Brown were having a 3-point shooting contest, which Brown ended up winning. After practice, Brown said “We’re going to get better together, grow together,” when talking about him and Tatum. It appears they’ve already starting to develop a bond ahead of summer league play, and I’m here for it all. 7/11 BABY.

Another important thing to take away from this practice is the presence of Ante Zizic. It’s good to finally see him practicing in green, and I’m excited for him to get it going once summer league starts up. After practice when he was speaking with the media he stated: “I think I can help this team with rebounding and toughness because that’s my style of game.” Everything he mentioned in this quote is exactly what the Celtics are lacking down low. They ranked close to the bottom of the league in rebounding last year and lacked a defensive presence down low. Hopefully, Zizic can bring that to the table.

Other news out of Boston, and probably the biggest news, is that free agency starts TONIGHT. I don’t expect the C’s to make a move at midnight, but they are expected to make some serious waves. Gordon Hayward is meeting with the team on Sunday, which will be his second of three meetings he plans on taking. The other teams involved are Miami and Utah. Miami does not appear to be much of a threat, as it’s been reported that the city is not a good fit for Hayward personality wise. So it’ll basically come down to Utah vs. Boston. My money is on Ainge. The Celtics chances of landing Paul George also depend on the signing of Hayward so this could end up being a HUGE weekend. But if Ainge doesn’t make any fireworks, I’m going to have an awful summer.
