According to multiple reports, the Celtics have hired Ron Adams to serve as an assistant to new coach Brad Stevens.

Adams had been the lead assistant to Tom Thibodeau with the Bulls, but he was not retained this offseason — reportedly a decision by general manager Gar Forman that did not sit well with Thibodeau. Adams has spent 2o-plus years as a coach and scout in the NBA, including stops with the Trail Blazers, Spurs, 76ers, Bucks and Thunder.

In Boston, Adams joins Jay Larranaga and Jamie Young, who were with the Celtics last season, and new hire Micah Shrewsberry, a former Butler assistant under Stevens who most recently was an assistant at Purdue.

Larranaga, who interviewed for the Celtics head coaching position, is said to be in the running for the 76ers head position.
