Brandon Bailey with RJ Hunter in 2015
It's not just players moving up from the NBA G-League these days.

The Boston Celtics recently promoted Scott Morrison from coach of the Maine Red Claws to the Celtics' staff as an assistant coach. Morrison, who has made the Red Claws into one of the more formidable G-League outfits with a 95-55 record over his tenure, including this year's run ending in the NBAGL Eastern Conference Finals, will be a great addition to the regular staff, helping to strengthen ties to the development league at a time when it's poised to be a more important tool than ever.

Morrison will be replaced by Brandon Bailey, who has been a member of the Celtics staff since 2011, working as a both a video coordinator and assistant coach, drawing on his knowledge of playmaking to aid the team on both ends of the floor. While some might see this as a step down, it's actually a great opportunity to lead one of the elite organizations at that level, providing the experience needed to take similar steps at the next (NBA) level. Neither are earthshaking moves for the Celtics, per se, but they do signal the dawn of a new era in Boston has arrived.
