With 14 of 15 possible roster spots already filled, there hasn't been an overwhelming amount of Celtics-related news by any means lately. But that actually got me thinking, and I found myself wondering what all the players currently on the roster have been up to this summer. Let's review:
- Paul Pierce got married out in California. He also hosted his annual youth camp back in Boston a few weeks ago.
- Kevin Garnett elected not to re-sign with longtime sponsor Adidas and signed a new endorsement contract with ANTA Sports Products Limited, which is based in China. I know...I've never heard of it, either. KG also reportedly turned down offers from Nike, Under Armour, and Reebok. Garnett spent about a week in China, touring the country, as part of an official introduction as the face of his new sponsor.
- Rajon Rondo spent the majority of his summer preparing for the FIBA World Championship with Team USA, before ultimately voluntarily withdrawing from the club on August 24 to handle undisclosed family matters.
Guys We're Not Entirely Sure About
Jermaine O'Neal, Marquis Daniels, Von Wafer, and Luke Harangody haven't put themselves in the public spotlight too often this summer, if at all. As a result, we're not entirely sure what they've been up, so I'm going to safely assume they've all locked themselves in a gym somewhere and have been working tirelessly on their respective games so that they can all play a part in the Celtics winning another championship next season. Yeah, I like the sound of that.
