title : NBA News: Boston Celtics' Jared Sullinger, David Lee Rely on Amir Johnson; Isaiah Thomas Ease Out Tyler Zeller, Jae Crowder
summary : The Boston Celtics have not made any splash in the NBA offseason as the team opted to retain its major basketball stars and refused to pursue big names in the industry. With the likes of Jared Sullinger, Jae Crowder and David Lee in the roster of the Boston Celtics, it appears that the NBA team could not be any more content with their players. Hence, the Boston Celtics now have one thing unique to its group coming in this NBA season - that is, the team has the widely coveted "cap space" which would allow them to move more freely once the free agent season commences in 2016. While this appears to be a move to cushion the budget of the NBA team, sports analysts believe that the Boston Celtics' move to pursue rookies and less famous basketball stars will prove to be advantageous to the group in the future.
