Phil Pressey is now guaranteed

Congratulations, Phil Pressey.

With the drafting of Marcus Smart, re-signing of Avery Bradley, Rajon Rondo entering a contract year, and a trade sending Marcus Thornton to the Celtics, the backcourt is a little crowded.

The fact that the Celtics had the option to cut Pressey loose and opted to keep him around shows that his hard work is paying off and he is adding the kind of value that the front office is looking for.

The Celtics keep a low-cost, hard working gamer in Phil Pressey, Kelly Olynyk keeps his buddy, and Pressey keeps his job. A classic Win-Win-Win scenario.
