Courtney Lee may start at SG for Celtics

Lee’s currently pegged as the team’s starting shooting guard, due to Terry’s preference to come off the bench and Bradley’s recovery from shoulder surgeries, but that could change if Bradley’s ready to play at the start of the season. Lee chose to stay tight-lipped on the conversations he’s had with Rivers about his role, but he did say he’ll come off the bench if that’s what the team requires.

“I just want to win. I’m not the coach, so whatever Doc feels will help the team, it’s his decision,” Lee said. “So I’m just going to go out there and just play.

“[Coming off the bench is] the same as starting the game. You’ve just got a job and a role to go out there and fulfill. You’ve just got to be professional and handle that.”

Having cited Boston as a playoff-caliber team, Lee was pleased to see Ainge execute the other moves he did in order to keep the C’s competitive for seasons to come, namely the re-signings of players like Garnett, Brandon Bass, Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox.
