I was a little surprised by this move on Boston's part.I like Stevens and wouldn't mind having him as our coach,he's done a fine job at Butler.I kinda hate to see him leave the college game,though I don't blame him.It'll be interesting to see how the older players take to him.

Yeah,but this little fella just won the lottery.He'll get plenty rich no matter how it turns out and if he fails there will be plenty of college offers if he decides to coach at that level again.Dream come true for this kid.

This is a win/win for Brad Stevens, he'll get paid and give the pro-game a shot. You never know I guess, he could be a big motivator for NBA players. Either way like L.A. said, he'll get paid and then have his pick of schools if he chooses to return to college.

I thought this was a sacrificial lamb hire while the Celtics rebuild, but they gave him a loooong deal

This will be Rick Pitino all over again.

From what Boston seems to be doing im guessing they're investing in next year. Get a terrible record, hopefully get a top 3 pick which will all be future NBA super stars(Wiggins,Randle,Parker). Actually every lottery pick in next years draft will all be awesome. Easily one of the greatest, if not the greatest draft in history.

IMO

Great move by both parties...I think Stevens has potential to be a great NBA coach.

If not, he's got a nice résumé to return to college...ala Rick Pitino, Cal, etc.

Yep.  It he pans out, then Ainge looks like a genius.  If the Celtics have mediocre records in the coming seasons, they can just can him as the scapegoat once they've sorted out their rebuilding.

So the real question is...

What high profile college team picks him up after the Boston experiment fails?

Probably. But not better than the 1984 - Jordan, Hakeem, Stockton, and Barkley.
