I dont really call those guys big time signings, given the stage of their career. Rondo will need alot bigger names to come to push them for a title. Like Love. Probably the biggest FA signing in Celtic History.
Exactly.

Q, you can't call Shaq and Eddie House big free agent signings ::) Shaq was old, and House was just a role player. Those kinda quality signings isn't going to be enough to keep Rondo around.

Who out of Pierce, Garnett, Allen, Bird, McHale, Parish, Russell did we sign in free agency? ::)

How many superstars move each year via FA?

How many players are drafted each year?

I'm not going to keep arguing if you can't see my point.

I'm just saying that Boston has never been a 'go to' place for free agents. So if you're expecting us to sign someone that'll get Rondo to stay, you're going to be disappointed.

all you really have is the boston name, not the greatest city, management, coach or list.

Boston is a big city, people like it except the weather. Brad Stevens was a great coach last season and is liked by the fans. Danny Ainge has proven that he can get it done. The best history in the NBA. What else is there Holz?

im talking about the big free agents and guys moving like lebron melo love.

its not New York or LA,
they dont have a great list like Houston or Golden State
Stevens is an alright coach but he isnt elite

the only reason I can see why big free agents would go there is the celtic brand.

Celts are a great organisation but they will build back to the top, not do it through FA.

I agree with valk - Kings have a lot of bigs already.

only question with Staukaus is what's going to happen to McElmore (sorry I don't know how to spell it correctly, but you know who I mean) ...

McLemore

I think they are both very similar players except for 2 differences

McLemore is more athletic and will most likely be a better defender (showed improvement over last season)
Stauskas has better ball handling and is probably a better shooter

Coach Malone is saying that the Kings can play both.  I am certainly on the Rondo train and if takes giving up McLemore to get him then I say do it.

Don't see Danny Ainge as a reason for guys coming... He got gifted KG, apart from that he was been one of the worst GMs in the league...

Boston isnt a big city, thats why its charming, they sign free agents, but as Jayman says, no big names, seems odd that they dont bcos they r like a Carlton/Essendon/Collingwood... great history of winning, they should attract more interest than they have.
Its actually a great point uve raised Jayman, i would want to know why its not a hot spot, is it related to the city or management?

It's hard to compete with the big markets like LA, Miami and New York. We overpay for role players in free agency, there's no 'steals' and there's no big names. Just makes our 17 banners all that more impressive that players aren't bashing down the door to come here. I'd say it relates to the city - mainly the cold weather..

its crazy, no real problems with The Patriots or The Sox, they get good FA but i suppose they're winter sports or it is related to the management of The Celtics :-\ 6 of these half dozen of the other
