🏀Celtics: We knew it was coming, but we didn’t know it was coming this quickly. On Friday, former head coach and new team president Brad Stevens made his first front office move, sending Kemba Walker and two draft picks to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a 2023 draft pick, center Moses Brown and former Celtic Al Horford.

  • This will likely be the first of many offseason deals for the C’s as the team begins second round interviews with at least three head coaching candidates. Notably absent? The top women candidates. Still time to add ’em, Brad.

⚾️Red Sox: Rafael Devers’ late inning home run was a little too late, as the Sox fell 7–3 to the Kansas City Royals yesterday. Boston’s off today before heading to Tampa Bay for a key three-game series with the Rays, who are currently a half game behind the Sox in the AL East. Time to widen that gap.

And although they couldn’t get it done on the field, there was some great news off of it. Fan favorite Jerry Remy returned to the broadcast booth yesterday after leaving in the middle of a game earlier this month due to shortness of breath. Welcome back, Rem Dawg!
