Celtics Morning Joe: Stevens focused on a team that could change come draft night

Brad Stevens could be having a hard time formatting a new plan going into the 2014-15 season. Anything can happen at this point, even Rondo rumors have sparked up again. Stevens took over a rebuilding team, and the Celtics have two roads to take this summer. They either go into full on win now with Rondo, or they blow it up completely.

Stevens spends these offseason days overseeing a core group of returning veterans as they engage in morning workouts before leading draft hopefuls through a late-morning session. The Celtics currently own picks Nos. 6 and 17 in next week's draft, but even as a heavy focus is placed on auditioning potential newcomers, Stevens stressed that his attention must ultimately fall on the guys he's most certain will be here.

"I’ve enjoyed seeing all the different guys through," said Stevens. "But it’s very much focused on the task at hand. And a lot of my attention over the last couple weeks has been with the young [returning] guys that are here for us. Just making sure that we’re getting in the gym and getting the right work done with the guys that are here. I think it’s always exciting to see 40 different [draft hopefuls], but we have two picks. Only two of them will ultimately be on our team."

If you haven't seen it. Rondo continues to show the world that he's the greatest connect four player of all-time!!
