Rondo's Replacement

When asked at Celtics Media Day who he thought would replace Rondo as the team's starting point guard, Brad Stevens responded, "I think it will be by committee.  It's hard to tell.  Obviously we have multiple primary ball handlers on our team, and I think the primary ball handlers in my opinion are Pressey, Smart, and Turner.  So we will see how that shakes itself out over the next couple of weeks."  I know most Celtics fans were just hoping that the reigns would be handed over to Marcus Smart, but it looks like he will have to win the starting spot in training camp.  It will also be intriguing to see if Stevens tries to play Turner as a point forward.  The Celtics have struggled with having a secondary playmaker since Paul Pierce left, so maybe Turner can fill some of that void.
