Jay Larranaga will move into the top assistant coaching role with the Celtics following Ron Adams departure to Golden State.
Larranaga has been an assistant coach on the Celtics bench since 2012, and he will now get the promotion to top assistant. It's also being reported that Darren Erman, currently the Celtics director of NBA scouting, may be moved to an assistant coaching role to fill out the bench, but that move is not official just yet.

Any Celtics draft movement will "likely be down, not up" according to CSN New England Celtics insider A. Sherrod Blakely.

The Celtics will be very active in this years' draft as they hold two first-round picks and are rumored to possibly acquire another via trade. It will be interesting to monitor whether the Celtics continue to try and bring in more young talent, or if they continue to pursue coveted big-name free agents.

The Celtics are leaning towards making Jay Larranaga their top assistant head coach to replace Ron Adams, according to the Boston Herald's Mark Murphy.

With Adams (Boston's former top assistant head coach) heading to Golden State to join Steve Kerr's staff, the Celtics may be looking inward for his replacement. Larranaga has spent the past two seasons on the Celtics bench, and he was considered for the head coaching gig upon Doc Rivers' departure before the team elected to go with Brad Stevens.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens stated in a recent interview that he thinks about changing his starting lineup "every minute of every day."

"The most likely change, if there would be a chance, would be in the frontcourt," said Stevens. That would mean either Kris Humphries or Brandon Bass would likely head to the bench in exchange for developing big man Jared Sullinger. Sullinger has been the first guy off the bench, however, consistency has been an issue as he's put up 11, 26, and eight points in his last three games. Whether Sullinger is starting or coming off the bench, he still is in line for a healthy heaping of minutes, so a change to the starting lineup would likely have a more adverse effect on the guy headed to the bench. Stay tuned for more updates on Boston's rotations.

The Celtics may change their starting lineup vs. the Nets on Sunday, according to coach Brad Stevens.

They were trounced by the Thunder on Friday with a starting lineup of Rajon Rondo, Gerald Wallace, Jeff Green, Jared Sullinger and Kris Humphries. That unorthodox arrangement was caused by the absence of Jerryd Bayless (toe) and Avery Bradley (ankle), and it's not surprising to see Stevens considering a change against the Nets' relatively small starting five.

Walter McCarty has joined the Celtics as an assistant coach on Brad Stevens' staff.

McCarty played for Boston from 1997-2005 and, like Rajon Rondo, he played for Kentucky in college. His experience is a welcome addition to Stevens' neophyte coaching staff but his ability to bond with Rondo is equally important, possibly filling the reported need for "someone [Rondo] can relate to and trust."

Brad Stevens added Ronald Nored to his staff recently.

Nored will be dealing with player development and should be more involved with the D-League. He was a point guard at Butler and he's starting off his coaching career very young at just age 23.

Brad Stevens said the word "tanking" isn't in the Celtics' "vocabulary."

There has been a lot of talk about Danny Ainge basically mailing in the 2013-14 season as he tries to rebuild the roster following the departure of the Big 3. While Stevens might not want to use the word tanking, it'll be pretty hard for the Celtics to compete for a playoff spot given the state of their current roster. Rajon Rondo is the only All-Star-caliber player left and he's recovering from a torn ACL. Otherwise, the Celtics are basically a collection of unproven youngsters and role players.

The Celtics added Ron Adams to be lead assistant coach on Brad Stevens' staff.

It's a nice hire for the Celtics. Adams has a nice resume with a head-coaching job at Fresno State from 1986-90 as well as assistant gigs with the Spurs, the Sixers, Bucks, Thunder and Bulls.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens has hired a 23-year-old statistical analyst, Drew Cannon, who was part of his staff with Butler.

"Drew has a great ability to not only analyze but communicate," said Stevens. "He's got a sense for the basketball side of things and he's a good communicator to me with it." The hiring of the recent Duke graduate by a 36-year-old head coach is further proof that Boston is embracing a new model for success, one in which advanced statistics play a key role.
