BOSTON (CBS) – What a week for the NBA. Jimmy Butler and Dwight Howard were traded, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul elected for free agency, the Cavaliers parted ways with general manager David Griffin, and more.

For the Celtics, it seemed they were at the center of it all draft night.

Boston used the third overall pick on Duke forward Jayson Tatum after dealing the first selection to the Sixers, and the C’s then added SMU forward Semi Ojeleye (No. 37), Arizona guard Kadeem Allen (No. 53), and California guard Jabari Bird (No. 56) in the second round.

And, of course, the Celts were attached to trade speculation concerning Pacers superstar Paul George and Knicks stud big Kristaps Porzingis.

“Celtics @ 7” host Adam Kaufman made waves on the web Friday with the following report:

Kaufman took to the 98.5 The Sports Hub airwaves Saturday morning and provided the latest on his report, as well as the financial viability of a George extension. Celtics writer Brian Robb joined the program to hit on the George discussion, Gordon Hayward’s future in free agency, the Tatum selection, and why Boston preferred him to the likes of Josh Jackson and Jonathan Isaac.

    Come on Danny, tell George’s agent to tell “PG13” that the Celts are all set….frankly buzz off you egotistical, pampered, self centered, ungrateful, primadonna; “only if”, get out of here with that. Really what has this guy done, since that the semi finals team…seems like so many years ago. Last year they were supposed to be a threat to Cavs. What happened, 7 seed and swept. They were going to play “Warrior fast” with new coach, but the same old plodding “Pacers” (I guess named after the AMC car! 0-60 in 12 seconds).
    I get it that he can shoot like few can but there is something wrong with this guy. He thinks he is entitled to be some sort of superstar status based on his youthful exploits but it looks to me from the outside that he is a drag. He slows it all down. Celtics play quick and fast like the old celtic days. They don’t need a drag on the court or in the locker room.
    Danny, tell him that you already got Tatum, Brown, Crowder, dancing bear, the 2nd pick, and are seeking Hayward…the Celts are all set for that position, “we already have a George” -Elaine Benis, Seinfeld
