Danny Ainge said that the Celtics are not going to tank this upcoming season.
"I'm not sure I used that word," Ainge said. "I think every player wants to know what the rules of the team are. I assured [them] we're going to try to win every game." It's really standard GM speak here and the Celtics are doing what they can to cut players and avoid paying the luxury tax. Tue, Jul 16, 2013 09:09:00 AM

The Celtics may have to cut some players to avoid the luxury tax penalty.

They currently sit at a tax penalty of $1,181,640, which is the least of the six NBA teams over the threshold -- the Lakers, Heat, Knicks, Bulls and Nets being the other five. Boston has to pay disappointing players Gerald Wallace at $10.1 million and Kris Humphries at $12 million, so it's easy to see why they're on the wrong side of the tax penalty. The team has a bunch of role players and should cut one or two in the coming weeks.

Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck said he'd like to retain both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett next season.

Grousbeck said he wants to retire Pierce's number, and although he also acknowledged he wants Garnett to return, Grousbeck admitted to roster uncertainty after a first-round playoff exit and has not spoken to Garnett about his future. Furthermore, Grousbeck wouldn't say with certainty what the roster will look like next season and acknowledged that the team needs help after losing to the Knicks in the first round.
