Jared Sullinger's agent, David Falk, said that the Celtics knew his client would eventually have to get back surgery.
"The Celtics knew when they drafted him there was a certain level of risk that required surgery, as did several other teams," said Falk. "Jared's 20 years old, to try to take a short-term risk could jeopardize his career long term. Having surgery was the most appropriate response," Falk said. Sullinger is expected to be ready for training camp next season.
