The Boston Celtics still want to see J.J. Redick wearing green.
ESPN's Marc Stein is the latest to report the C's interest in the Orlando Magic shooting guard. Via Twitter:
Hearing Celts, even before season-worst 7-for-32 shooting from 15+ feet in NYK loss, have ramped up their interest in Magic's J.J. Redick

Size obviously Celts' priority if they do deal before Feb. 21 trade deadline but word is they hope to work way into Redick mix if they can

Pro Basketball Talk points out that the shamrocks need help on the front line first and a shooter second. There's also the issue of who the Celts would be sending out, which isn't clear (PBT says sending Jared Sullinger doesn't help since that deal weakens the front line).
David Baumann tweeted over the weekend : "As Feb. 21 #NBA trade deadline looms,
sources tell me the Boston Celtics covet Orlando Magic SG J.J. Redick"
In 41 games, Redick is averaging 14.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists, .5 steals, .1 blocks and 2.34 3-pointers made. The Magic moved the ex-Dukie into the starting lineup two games ago.

The Celtics couldn’t buy a bucket from outside during their loss to the Knicks on Thursday, and outside shooting is something the C’s could stand to improve. Danny Ainge just might have a solution in mind. ESPN’s Marc Stein tweeted on Friday morning that he’s hearing the Celtics are “ramping up their interest” in Magic guard J.J. Redick. Stein reports that he heard this...

While everyone has been talking about the Lakers downfall, the Celtics haven’t been that much better. They are looking old and shooting horribly lately, so they are looking to bring in some help before trading deadline.

The Boston Celtics reportedly instructed security guards not to allow Honey Nut Cheerios boxes or signs into the TD Bank Garden for the team’s game against the New York Knicks on Thursday.
The last time the teams played, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and Celtics forward Kevin Garnett got into a fight that resulted in double-technical fouls. Melo was so upset with KG he confronted...
BOSTON — The last time Paul Pierce stayed home for NBA All-Star Weekend, the Celtics’ record made it difficult to whine about the snub. The Celtics went 24-58 in the last year of the pre-”New Big Three” era while Pierce, for the first time in his career, spent more than a month watching with major injury as his team give away game after game.
There is no serious injury this...
Melo isn’t taking any chances with Celtics fans in Beantown who might think about crossing the line. Anthony is taking a bodyguard with him for tonight’s nationally-televised rematch. Per the NY Daily News: “Carmelo Anthony has become public enemy No. 1 in Celtics Nation, which would explain the Knicks All-Star forward being accompanied by his own personal...
8:00: The Celtics, coming off their tough loss to the Cavs, will host the Knicks tonight at the Garden. The C's currently sit at just 20-21 with a lack of hope in the fan base. If they win tonight, then I'll feel confident again. But I doubt that that will happen. As always, updates will be available here after every quarter. Enjoy the game.
Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck commented on possible trades on NECN’s This Week in Business.
“There’s a likelihood of moves,” said Grousbeck. “[Coach] Doc [Rivers] hinted at thinking about it. [President of basketball operations Danny Ainge's] phone rings all day long. I think February will be a busy month, but can’t predict yet.” (Video)
Keep that image in your mind'sCeltics fans
Wondering what not to do when leading by 27 points in a basketball? Play like your the Boston Celtics because the results can be deadly. Only the Celtics would be able to revive a fanbase's hopes in a single half only to destroy it with a thud ending like the one tonight in Atlanta. Besides Garnett no one on the Celtics wanted to...
There are a couple of points I would like to hit on before I dive into this glorious trade you see above. Over the past few days many Celtics’ bloggers have written various articles saying that Jeff Green needs to be inserted into the starting lineup over Paul Pierce. That it would allow Green to run with Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley while allowing Pierce to a primary scorer...
While they made some strides defensively in their last game, the Orlando Magic couldn't put a dent in their lengthy slump.
The free-falling Magic will try to snap a four-game skid and win for only the third time in 18 games Sunday night when they host the Detroit Pistons.
Wins have been awfully tough to come by for Orlando, regardless of the venue or strength of its opponent...

When the Orlando Magic (14-27) and Toronto Raptors (15-27) meet tonight at 7 p.m. EST, it will be their final matchup of the season. Toronto leads the season series 3-0. In fact, the Magic's 2-14 run began with a loss to the Raptors on December 21st. Tonight, the Magic will need to control the boards and trust their defensive rotations to keep the Raptors' guards from getting...
It seemed as though last night's game was about to enter overtime, until DeMar DeRozan hit a cold-blooded, 22-foot fadeaway jumper to beat the buzzer. The Orlando Magic (14-28) trailed the Toronto Raptors (16-27) for most of the game, but were able to finally take the lead with 5:25 left in the 4th quarter after a layup by Jameer Nelson. The Magic relinquished the lead and were...
