Paul Pierce's elbow will keep him from playing for Team USA this summer. It did not prevent Pierce from signing a contract extension.
Danny Ainge successfully swapped Raef LaFrentz's contract for Theo Ratliff's slightly less onerous deal, adding Sebastian Telfair in the process. Ainge then acquired Rajon Rondo in the draft, immediately making Bassy the third-best point guard on the roster. At the moment. Who knows what the roster will look like when the season starts. Will they add The Answer? Or some diversity?
