In anticipation of Monday's matinee against the Los Angeles Clippers, the Celtics spent Sunday afternoon practicing at Santa Monica High.

Among the participants were recently acquired forwards Tayshaun Prince and Shavlik Randolph, who head coach Brad Stevens is looking forward to having on his side.

"He's (Randolph) a guy that people just love having on their team," Stevens told ESPNBoston.com's Chris Forsberg this past Friday. "He adds to the way that teams play, from a physical standpoint. I know that the people in Phoenix felt that way; everybody you talk to in our organization feels that way. The guys that were with him (during Randolph's first stint with Boston)—albeit there's not many of them left—are excited that he's going to be back. And I'm excited that he's going to be back."

With the way Danny Ainge has been shifting players in and out of Boston, it's uncertain how long Randolph will remain with the team. The same goes for Prince, who's situation is a little bit more complex than Randolph's.

"I think that we'll see how it all plays out with how opportunity with all these different guys, but [Prince has] got a lot of experience, he's had a lot of winning experience, and any guy like that is welcome to share his thoughts all day long."

Prince indicated after practice today that he was ready to be a Celtic for the rest of the season but also assured that every possibility was still on the table, per Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe.

Regardless of what the future holds, though, Stevens said he expects both Prince and Randolph to be active for tomorrow night's game.

As for Chris Douglas-Roberts, a wing the Celtics received as part of the Austin Rivers to the Clippers deal, the team announced today that they had requested waivers on the five-year pro out of Memphis.

James Young was the only member of the team who did not practice today as he is still recovering from an illness.
