Celtics' Hayward undergoes surgery, expected to make training camp

Brad Stevens perfectly describes Marcus Smart's mentality

Irving averaged 24.4 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 60 games in his first season in Boston.

"We're all replaceable. Nobody is irreplaceable, but Marcus is certainly a player that has been big for us over the last few years". I understand people have short memories, but I certainly don't. "I'm really excited about their motivation".

If Hayward and Irving are healthy entering the 2018-19 season, Boston will be among the favorites to win the East next season.

Celtics president Danny Ainge told reporters Irving didn't want to be seen after the surgery.

"You need that kind of scoring", Ainge said. Golden State Vs Clevland. They far exceeded expectations without their prized free-agent acquisition, who was expected to be one of the more productive two-way players on the roster.

"We're not going to do something unless it makes us better". So yeah, it's not going to be ideal every night.

"I got a lot to think about".

Irving had not played in the Celtics' run to the Eastern Conference finals after undergoing a pair of surgeries in March and April to remove screws from his left patella that had become infected.

"It was a little bit of a surprise". I always leave everything on the court, every game. "His bone had completely healed and the muscles and tissues and everything had all healed". "I don't know [if they'll pay me]". That said, at least it's after their season is already over and not just before the postseason.

Smart, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, was told that Boston might not be able - or willing - to afford the $12-14 million a year price tag that he reportedly has been seeking. Ainge explained why those kinds of proclamations don't bother him. "But I just think Game 7, in Boston, all the circumstances that surround Boston, the history ... to come here in a hostile environment: (it's) right there". Just ask LeBron. He would take that issue any time of the day, and the Celtics will have it for the next few years.

"It's a good draft".
