BOSTON Teams

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Bits of Celtics housekeeping via ESPN's Jeff Goodman: The Celtics formally extended a $3.7 million qualifying offer to make Tyler Zeller a restricted free agent. The team also shifted the guarantee dates on the contracts of Amir Johnson ($12 million) and Jonas Jerebko ($5 million) from July 3 to July 7. That affords the team extra time to navigate the initial stages of free agency before making decisions on those players.

The Boston Bruins have signed defenseman Torey Krug to a four-year contract through the 2019-20 season worth an average annual value of $5.25 million.

How confident is Isaiah Thomas that Danny Ainge can land a big free agent? "I'm very confident. I'm not going to say it's going be Kevin Durant. Who knows? I'm confident he's going to get a couple guys and build on what we got going here."

Isaiah Thomas said that if he's in the recruiting contingent, he's going to buy some Durant shoes and gear to wear into the meeting.
