As the Celtics attempt to climb out of a 2-0 hole in their first-round playoff series against the Bulls, you can’t help but wonder if they would be better off with a secondary scorer to go with Isaiah Thomas.
Apparently, Boston’s coaching staff wanted to acquire that scorer two months ago. Source, Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Celtics coaching staff was in favor of trading for Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony before the trade deadline, but Boston president of basketball operations Danny Ainge wouldn’t pull the trigger. 

According to an NBA source, the Celtics coaching staff was in favor of trading for Anthony at the trade deadline, but general manager Danny Ainge had too many reservations. One of Ainge’s concerns, according to a source, was an Anthony trade would have given Boston no real cap space to work with for the 2017 free-agent class.

The report also says that the Carmelo talks could heat up again if the Celtics are eliminated in the first round and that Knicks president Phil Jackson would consider Jae Crowder “a major player of interest” in any potential deal.
Jackson hasn’t held his tongue about trading Anthony, and the 32-year-old forward has expressed a willingness to waive his no-trade clause to go to a winning situation. The Celtics, despite their postseason struggles, certainly check that box.

Rajon Rondo injured his right hand in game 2 of the NBA Playoffs at Boston on Tuesday night. Rondo underwent a subsequent exam and x-rays that confirmed a thumb fracture. Surgery is not required for this injury, and he is out indefinitely.
Rondo averaged 7.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.7 assists, and 1.4 steals in the regular season. In two games in the Playoffs versus the top-seeded Boston Celtics, he normed 11.5 points, 8.5 rebs, 10.0 asst, and 3.5 steals

Week 1 brings the NFC champion Falcons to Soldier Field for the season opener. The Bears follow with what could be three potentially tough games, with a trip to Tampa for a game with the Buccaneers in Week 2, a home game against the Steelers in Week 3 and a short week before a Thursday contest against the Packers at Lambeau Field in Week 4. This will mark the seventh straight year with a primetime contest in Green Bay.
The Bears will play 13 of their 16 games on Sundays. The game Week 4 against Green Bay marks the first primetime game, and the following matchup against Minnesota in Week 5 is on a Monday night.
