You know who would help the Boston Celtics? Anthony Davis. I know, totally the first time you’ve heard about that or even thought about it yourself, right? Well, be prepared for 8 more months of that topic.

Woj reports (transcribed by NBC Boston)

“Boston has been hawking Anthony Davis for years,” Wojnarowski said. “They always hoped that it would be, whether it’s the end of this season or the beginning of next before the trade deadline, that they would gather up all those assets, all those picks Danny Ainge has and young players, and they’d be the team to be able to get Anthony Davis. But now you have L.A. and if they get shut out in free agency, they’re going to have to take all their young players to try to use them to get Anthony Davis.”

Bulpett has Al Horford’s perspective on the early season struggles:

“And I think for our group, going through that early has made us stronger and tighter and made us understand that we need to play at a certain level and do certain things to win. So, for us, I think that was very beneficial because if we would have started out good and won some games, some of these issues that were underlying, winning would take care of that. But they’d still be there. Now all those things have been addressed thoroughly. We’re still going through it, but we’re learning.”
