07:16 AM ET 07.29 | For anyone wondering whether Celtics coach Brad Stevens would round his staff out with familiar faces, the answer is becoming a clear yes. [Stevens] has added another member to his staff, and again it's someone with connections to Butler University, where Stevens was the head coach before the Celtics hired him in July. Former Butler point guard Ronald Nored, who most recently was an assistant coach at South Alabama, will reunite with Stevens in Boston, a league source confirmed to the Globe Sunday. ... [Nored] joins a staff that already includes Micah Shrewsberry, a former Butler assistant under Stevens who most recently was an assistant coach at Purdue. Another member of Stevens's staff in Boston is 23-year-old Drew Cannon, a basketball analytics specialist whom Stevens brought to Butler.

This experiment will fail miserably.

I disagree my Sixers are clearly ahead in the Wiggins sweepstakes. Noel will be out until at least ~Christmas. We haven't even hired a coach and Boston has assistant coaches already lol. I have 6 teams that are not cracking 30 wins

1. Sixers 19-63 On paper right now I think are the worse
2. Suns 23-59
3. Orlando 25-57
4. Bobcats 27-55
5. Bucks 27-55
6. Kings 28-54
7. Celtics 29-53

Boston is basically rebuilding so they don't have much to lose. Or should I say that are expected to lose a lot.

I don't think the Raps, Hawks, Wizards are going to fair much better. Probably only slightly better than the ones you mentioned.

Yeah I think Raps will win at least 35 games. Valuncias looks much more improved. I think he will be ther difference of possibly getting the Raps in the playoffs. Hawks most likely make the playoffs with around low 40 wins and Wizards I think have a chance for upper 30's of wins with a chance of getting an eigth seed depending on how well the Cav's and Piston are.

Sixers won 34 last year so I think they will be minus 15. Raps won 34 as well last year and Boston won 41. I just see some of those Sixers losses going to the Raps and similar to Boston. I can't see 41 wins out of Boston so some of these wins will go the Raps.
