Even with an uncertain future, Tayshaun Prince is producing for the Celtics

When Tayshaun Prince's name was included in the Jeff Green trade last week, nobody expected the 34-year old to play a second in Celtic green. While waiting to hear what his future holds, Prince, in only two games, has proved valuable to the young C's squad.

The 12-year old veteran, who won a title in 2004 with Detroit, could have asked for a buyout, refusing to suit up for the Celts.

Instead, Prince took the high road. Before Monday's game against the Clippers, rumored to be his most likely landing spot, Prince did nothing but speak highly of his situation with Boston:

Per Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times:

I'm not going to have one foot in, one foot out. I'm a Boston Celtic and I'm going to have both feet in.

Coach Brad Stevens praised Prince after Thursday's win in Portland:

His production hasn't jumped off the stat sheet, but his nine point, three rebound effort against the Blazers proved to be crucial in the one point victory. Tayshaun was a steady 4-of-5 from the field, including one three-pointer from the corner, and a fast break dunk, where it seemed like Prince went back in time to 2005.

Prince also got the "hockey assist" on the game winning shot by Evan Turner, acting as a decoy on the fake hand off from Jarred Sullinger:

If he is to stay with the C's, the lanky swingman will certainly make the most of his time on the court. With Jae Crowder struggling in his last four games, averaging just 2.8 points per game, as well as the recent injury to Kelly Olynyk, the minutes are there for Prince to grab.
