Isaiah Thomas has embraced the idea of sharing the spotlight in Boston with new addition Al Horford, A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com writes. Thomas anticipates that there will be a learning curve as the two stars build chemistry, but he does not expect it to be a long one, Blakely adds.
“It’s only going to help. That’s what we need, other guys that can put the ball in the basket, other guys that can do a variety of different things and he’s one of those guys,” Thomas told Blakely. “The attention will go off me a little bit with having Al Horford on our team.”
Here’s more out of Boston:
- Thomas applauded all of the Celtics’ moves this summer, but especially expressed a fondness for Gerald Green‘s return to Boston because Green can guard multiple positions and shoot well, Chris Forsberg of ESPN.com relays. “We need something like that,” Thomas said, referring to Green.
- Celtics rookie Jaylen Brown performed well during the Las Vegas portion of the summer league and said he had no plans to rest in the 10-week period between its conclusion and the beginning of training camp, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe writes. Brown, who plans to work with his personal trainer during that time period, added he has talked with Celtics coach Brad Stevens about the best opportunity to earn minutes, Washburn relays.
