Proof of Celtics overhaul in the photo

Avery Bradley's Twitter avatar is a moment of celebration from last season's playoffs.

It is also a photographic glimpse into the drastic overhaul the Boston Celtics have made in their bench this summer.

In the picture Bradley is celebrating a three-point shot as he runs by Ray Allen, Keyon Dooling, Marquis Daniels, Mickael Pietrus, Ryan Hollins, and Greg Stiemsma on the sidelines. Of those six, only Dooling is returning to the Celtics this fall.

See where the other reserves have gone this offseason:

Ray Allen: Signed with the Miami Heat, July 11, 2012.

Report: Celtics’ pick Demetrius Jackson gets 4-year, $5.5M deal

The Celtics and second-round pick Demetrius Jackson have finalized a four-year, $5.5 millon contract, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reported.

Jackson, a point guard out of Notre Dame, was the 45th overall pick. He was projected by some as a first-rounder before the draft and the first year of his deal is likely to be guaranteed. Last year, Celtics’ second-round pick Jordan Mickey signed a four-year, $5 million deal as the 33rd pick overall.

Jackson will face plenty of training camp competition in a crowded group of backcourt players for the C’s.
