Sources consider Ball’s injury to be minor. Yahoo Sports first reported the meniscus tear.

I’ve really seen Lonzo emerge as a young man this offseason, Pelinka said last week after the NBA draft. He’ll come up to the office and come in and sit down and have a direct conversation about his goals, what he wants to do, the trainers he wants to work with, the things in his game he wants to work on.

He really designed his own workout plan this summer. It wasn’t, ‘Hey, Lonzo, we need you to do X, Y, Z.’ He came to us and said, ‘I’d really like to do this, what do you guys think?’ He came to Magic and said ‘I’d like to start watching film with you once a week just to learn.’ Magic, myself and Lonzo have once a week for an hour doing sessions, and with [Kyle Kuzma], with [Brandon Ingram], with [Josh Hart], to see these guys start opting into greatness, regardless of what happens this summer, that in itself is just a huge thing for us.

The 25-year-old was coming off a two-year $3.875 million contract.

Namestnikov came to New York with Brett Howden, Libor Hajek and draft picks for McDonagh and J.T. Miller.

When I saw Williams projected as a lottery pick, I was kind of horrified. Meager skills, balky motor, dubious engagement with his team — was all that worth one of the precious picks at the Dikembe Mutombo Authentic Jersey high end of a loaded draft?

But for the Celtics to get a player with this sort of explosive athleticism so deep in the draft is a remarkable bargain. He isn’t a perimeter shooter, can’t make free throws and will have to be convinced to consistently perform for the benefit of his teammates. But even if he never makes all that much progress with the first two, the strong culture in the Celtics organization assures he’ll have almost no choice but to conform to the standard set there.

There still is a place in the league for a big man who can rebound, defend and move.
