Al Horford seems to be getting to work with his new Boston Celtics teammates. Second-year guard R.J. Hunter posted a picture to his Instagram account showing the pair alongside teammates Amir Johnson and Jae Crowder. Sweat-drenched Hunter looks to have gone through a fairly rigorous workout.

The Celtics mourned the passing of longtime parquet caretaker Rudolph "Spider" Edwards on Wednesday. Edwards, instantly recognizable with his trademark fedora, swept the Garden parquet for 33 years and remained a familiar presence even after hanging up his broom. Edwards did a ceremonial sweep of the Garden parquet last October when the Celtics unveiled only the third parquet in team history. Edwards was beloved by players (Larry Bird, among them), fans, and executives alike. As Celtics assistant GM Mike Zarren wrote on Twitter Wednesday, "When I was 4 years old, the only thing I wanted in the whole world was to be Spider for a day. Really."

A look at the Celtics' depth chart after Saturday's flurry of roster activity.

With Saturday's signings, the Celtics are headed back over the salary cap. Access to the $5.6 million mid-level could allow the team to either inflate the contract of second-round picks like Demertius Jackson or target in-season help.

After the Celtics' flurry of activity on Saturday, a look at their projected depth chart.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

The Boston Celtics made a flurry of moves Saturday, including agreeing to deals with Gerald Green and Tyler Zeller. What it seems to suggest is that Boston is willing to head into next season with the roster it has constructed. The Celtics still have the flexibility and assets to explore trade opportunities, but also bolstered their depth assuming no deals materialize.

Irked Crowder: Celtics told Durant too much

Jae Crowder thinks the Celtics may have gone too far in their recruitment of Kevin Durant, giving up valuable defensive strategies against the All-Star's new team, the Warriors.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

How bad was Jae Crowder's ankle in the postseason? He said that soreness didn't dissipate until two weeks ago — or two months after Boston's season ended. Crowder suffered a bad sprain in mid-March, missed eight games, and was never quite himself in the postseason. He said after resting his body at the start of the summer, he finally feels 100 percent again.

Tyler Zeller still on the market

The 7-footer remains a restricted free agent this offseason. Kevin Pelton believes Zeller is a reliable backup center, but he's not a shot-blocking threat. Pelton could see the 26-year-old big man landing in Brooklyn. Best available NBA free agents (Insider)

J.R. Smith still available

The veteran guard made a career-high 204 3-pointers with Cleveland last season. Kevin Pelton believes Boston could use Smith's 3-point shooting. Best available NBA free agents (Insider)
