Chris Mannix on Celtics Beat


Chris Mannix and Kyle Draper were on Celtics Beat today. Interesting stuff. Some bullet points from Mannix here:

*Celtics offered 6 and Sullinger for 1. Cleveland didn't take it seriously.

*No direct knowledge of what Celtics will do with Rondo, but having both Smart and Rondo doesn't make sense long term. Two point guards that can't shoot.

*Young a good pick, but has a lot of question marks.

*Celtics will still go after Kevin Love. Can't compete with an offer that includes Klay Thompson, but Danny is still going to go after it.

*Every conversation Mannix has had within Celtics organization has been about the Celtics trying to get that one star to build around.

*No chance Brad Stevens cuts-and-runs from the Celtics even if the team continues to flounder. He's here for the long haul.

*Keep an eye on Chandler Parsons. Wouldn't be surprised if Boston tries to make a big offer to at least make Houston match an offer on him.

*Don't expect Gordon Hayward to go anywhere. Utah likes him and they will likely match almost any offer.

Kyle Draper also said that if Exum was on the board with Smart - Boston still would've picked Smart. Gordon was the guy who they'd pick if all there were available though.

Oh, and both predicted 30-35 wins for the team next year barring a major trade, which they don't see happening.

Here's a link to the whole show and interview with Mannix and Draper:
