Great news if you’re a Boston Celtics fan! Brandon Bass has reached an agreement on a 3-year deal to return to Boston, giving Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers another weapon as they begin to retool for next season and beyond. Bass is the perfect fit for this Celtics team – he’s got the team-first attitude, his a great locker room guy, and Bass has a nice shooting touch. If you’re like me, you’ve got to be pumped at the prospect of adding shooters like Bass and (hopefully, knock on wood) Jason Terry and Jeff Green to the mix.
The focus now shifts to Ray Allen and Green, so we’ll see what happens on those fronts. Word on the street is that Ainge is sweetening the pot, offering Allen a no-trade clause to give him a better comfort level in terms of returning to a stable environment. The Bass signing certainly can’t hurt.
Welcome back, Brandon!
