The Celtics formally introduced their newest players on Monday as Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, and Keith Bogans took the podium.

CSNNE's Kyle Draper caught up with Celtics head coach Brad Stevens after the press conference and picked his brain on a number of Celtics topics, including what he thinks of the new guys.
"I really like them," Stevens said. "I haven't met Gerald yet; I'm supposed to talk to him on the phone later today. But these guys have been great. Getting a chance to sit down, meet, they're excited to be here. They're excited to play in Boston and play for the Celtics. So I'm looking forward to working with them."

Brad Stevens wasn't around for the Kelly Olynyk press conference, as he wasn't head coach yet, but he got a really good look at him in Orlando during Summer League.

"I think Kelly, who I coached against this year, who I really liked in the Draft, who I was obviously in retrospect was very glad that the Celtics traded up to get, was better than I thought he was," Stevens said. "I thought he was one of the best players there. And he's a productive guy with a unique skillet for his side, and he's a great person."

Stevens has been busy meeting players, and went all the way to Louisville to meet Rajon Rondo.

"Well I'm trying to get with as many of these guys as possible, and I saw a ton of them down in Orlando," Stevens said. "Rajon had his camp in Louisville and actually has it for a couple of weeks. So, our best opportunity was for me to go down there. So I went down to camp, we had a great time sitting down spending time together, I really appreciate him. I like him."
