And here we start a new era and give you the most detailed information in our weekly edition of your Celtics podcast in Spanish.
|Bogans contacting Gerald Wallace?|
We obviously have high hopes for MarShon Brooks, who arrived to the press conference with green tie and socks. He looked hyped to show his Celtics jersey and to finally be able to join the Celtics forces after being traded in draft night in 2011. Brooks is a player that can score at ease and has an uncanny talent to put the ball in the basket.
|A weird moment for Celtics fans|
We also comment on the fresh waiving of Kris Joseph (also part of the Celtics-Nets trade) and the absence of Gerald Wallace due to a previous compromise in his native Alabama.
The biggest surprise came with the announcement of another secret aspect of the trade: Danny majestically got a $10.3 million exception from Brooklyn which the team can use during the next year. We all agree that Danny Ainge has done a superb transaction and that we got gold out from Brooklyn, who was desperate to get KG and Paul to make a dream team next year.
|Olynyk aiming high|
Phil Pressey is also a very good project for our Celtics next year. He can be get to be Rajon´s backup next year. He has been rumored to be about to get signed by the Celtics, once the roster gets a little be trimmed and Ainge has more flexibility to sign new players such as Vitor Faverani, the Brazilian center who was playing in Valencia, Spain.
Actually, we get some insider info on Faverani from Ramsés, fan from the Valencia team as well and he has been able to follow his development from close distance. Faverani will make our frontcourt stronger and hopefully he will be able to contribute more than his countryman Fab Melo.
As usual, we answer the questions from our listeners, who this week center around the possible trades that Ainge may do with some of the players recently acquired by Ainge from the Nets and the contracts of Brandon Bass and Courtney Lee. Ainge is looking for expiring contracts and round picks. We also comment on the need to make some changes because we have overbooking in the shooting guard and power forward position.
Finally we have the section of humor centered this week about famous quotes of classic movies.
