Grousbeck Speaks Out on Potential Changes for Celtics [Video]

The Boston Celtics are in a unique position heading into the NBA offseason. On one hand, the team is less than a year removed from an Eastern Conference Finals appearance and boasts a roster led by two young All-Stars. On the other, the Celtics were 36-36 last season and are entering the summer with a new coach and GM.

So, in spite of the franchise’s solid foundation, major changes could (and probably should) be coming in a matter of weeks.

Really, the club’s offseason kicked into high gear earlier this month when team president Brad Stevens traded Kemba Walker for Al Horford and Moses Brown.

On Tuesday, Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck was asked to weigh in on what else could transpire as Stevens works to restore the club’s status as a contender. His response indicated that fans could be in for a wild ride as trade season and free agency draw near.

Celtics Owner Talks Potential Roster Changes

Grousbeck made an appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger & Mazz and was asked about the potential for a roster overhaul. He was careful not to discuss specific players in giving his answer but made no secret of the fact that Stevens and his brain trust will be exploring every avenue toward improvement.

“We really try hard not to talk about future contracts and particular guys,” Grousbeck said, while conceding there is work to be done. “The roster is not complete and there is a lot we have to go do and there is a lot of potential trades I would imagine, just reading the wires and thinking a little bit and talking a little bit to Brad. There is a lot of stuff that could happen this summer.”

Although the Celtics’ cap situation is prohibitive, Grousbeck expects there to be a high level of activity.

“I don’t really know what the roster is going to look like in August. It’s going to be a very busy July. We’re not hard-capped or anything like that but we are going to have to be clever. If we are going to have to take in money, by cap rules, we are going to have to send money out.”

Grousbeck maintained that he isn’t demanding any particular change or course of action. However, he is ready for the front office to do what it must to find more wins next season.

“I am prepared for it, let’s put it that way,” he said. “I’m not saying this roster, in my view, has to change because of XYZ. I’m saying we have a new team president of basketball, we a new head coach. They are going to spend July figuring out who they want to have and what the roster is going to look like. I’m going to be supportive as is the rest of ownership. It’s really in that order.”

During the interview with Grousbeck, which covered a myriad of topics, the team’s CEO and managing partner also commented on moving forward with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown as core pieces. His response indicated a desire to keep them at the forefront of Boston’s plans.

“The idea is we have two young All-Stars –23 and 25, I think, is their ages — and Ime [Udoka] highlighted them in his press conference,” said Grousbeck.

In his eyes, Tatum and Brown were part of the appeal for Udoka in taking the Cs’ head coaching job.

“He wants to be here in large part because of our roster, not to mention the fans and everything else it is about Boston. It’s because of who’s on the team right now and probably led by those two, Jayson and Jaylen.”

Grousbeck did stop short of saying Tatum and Brown are untouchable. Still, he expressed hope that the pair could be Celtics lifers.

“I love them. We want them to retire as Celtics,” Grousbeck said.

This is the New York City-Boston section, formerly the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad (New Haven, NH, or NYNH&H for short). Specifically, this is the junction at South Norwalk, where the Danbury Line (to the eponymous Danbury, CT), diverges/splits off of the NEC, and this is at milepost 41.3; to the west (left) at milepost 41.0 is the station at South Norwalk. Numerous passenger trains can be seen every day, of both the Metro-North Commuter Railroad (M-N, MNCR, or MNCW for short) and of Amtrak (AMTK), including the "Acela Express", numerous "Northeast Regionals", and the "Vermonter". Metro-North is part of New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). Besides passenger trains continuing towards or coming from Boston, locals coming to/from the Danbury Line can also be seen. This portion of the NEC, from New York City to New Haven, is owned by Metro-North; east of New Haven to Boston, it is owned by Amtrak. Originally, electrification ended at New Haven, but it was extended to Boston in the late 1990's in preparation for the inauguration of the "Acela Express" service. Norwalk, being between New York City and New Haven, is on the older 12.5 kilovolts (kV) at 60 Hertz (Hz); from New Haven to Boston the newer electrification is 25 kV at 60 Hz. There are no radio feeds/streams or ATCS layouts/servers available. When’s the next train? Yeah, we get this a lot.
