After a brief vacation break Celtics Stuff Live returned to a flurry of late July NBA news, including the signing of Marcus Smart to a four year contract at a cool $52 million. Smart has a pair of fans in Jon and Justin, who were overjoyed at his re-signing. Not only does it keep a crucial piece of the Celtics run to Banner 18 in 2019, but it also provides a mid tiered contract that is easily dealt for bigger fish. The guys also talked about Isaiah Thomas reaching out to Danny Ainge about the Celtics interest in signing him this summer. While the pieces didn't fit at this time, it's great for karmic reasons.

In the show's second half, Justin and Jon recapped the release of Abdel Nader and the signing of Jabari Bird to become the team's new 15th player. Then the CSL guys broke down the Raptors acquisition of Kawhi Leonard; how the deal helps Toronto and San Antonio and creates a tougher hurdle to the Finals, at least in the short term. Look out for the CLNS Media YouTube channel and CSL's latest video talking with Jon's son Carter and his gift of a pair of game sneakers from Marcus Smart.
