Danny Ainge says the Celtics aren’t interested in the free agent market, aren’t shopping Rondo and Green, and aren’t in a hurry to find a new coach.  So what are they focused on doing, cutting the roster! Terrence Williams, the troubled SG from Louville was cut earlier in the week, and he should be the [...]

On Monday afternoon, Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge announced that Kevin Garnett is likely to miss the next two weeks with an ankle injury.  While the Celtics seem sure that the injury won’t keep KG out of the lineup for the whole rest of the season, they do seem to be erring [...]
