As the trade deadline slowly approaches the amount of rumors will increase exponentially. This time, the rumor comes from Orlando and has been mentioned by David Baumann, from NBC Sports.
The name, J.J. Redick:
As Feb. 21 #NBA trade deadline looms, sources tell me the Boston Celtics covet Orlando Magic SG J.J. Redick.

As usual, this doesn´t mean anything particularly new. We now Danny and Doc have always liked J.J. and they might be contacting Orlando to ask about the availability of Redick, but from that to an actual trade offer it may be a wide stretch.
The truth is that while Redick wouldn´t fill a major need in our roster, he would certainly help our team. Maybe - and this is just speculation from my part- he would be part of a bigger trade in which a third team would be involved and thanks to which we would be able to get a center. It is unknown whether Orlando would be interested by any of our players in particular or ...

A few days ago, we posted an article about Jason Terry's description of Rajon Rondo's really bizarre pre-game ritual:
"(Rajon Rondo's) routine is long-winded and it lasts all the way through tip-off.
It starts in the back hallway. He runs down a corridor and he throws the
ball to our team chaplain, who throws it back. Then [Rondo] runs out
into a circle, high...
Joakim Noah and Kevin Garnett have a history against each other, and Noah had a funny response when asked about KG's trash talk.
If you thought the trade rumors were bad before, just wait.
According to Boston Globe writer Gary Washburn, Doc Rivers ripped into the Celtics Sunday night after their loss to Detroit 103-88. One tactic he unleashed was threatening to shakeup the roster to get players who are “committed to being a good basketball team.”
I gotta either find the right combination, the right...
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Doc Rivers can't stand mediocrity. If his Boston Celtics don't shape up soon, he wants some of his players shipped out. Rivers, the Celtics' coach, was mortified by his team's third straight loss, a 103-88 thumping by the Detroit Pistons at The Palace on Sunday. His club never had a lead as it sank to .500 nearing the season's midway point...
Kevin Garnett will never be misunderstood as a nice guy. The NBA is full of personalities that are competitive yet not capable of the misdeeds that Garnett is capable of. Joakim Noah is not exactly a pillar of virtue either. His history does not reflect someone who is afraid to sneak in a low-blow from time [...]

Here we are, winners of 6 out of our last 10 games and trying to right our ship, lets see what the writers from Celticslife think in our newest addiction of 5 on 5:
1. The Celtics have been playing really well lately (other then that stinker the other night). What has been the difference?
Terry P: Jeff Green. Now look, I have been hard on him PLENTY and still want to trade his...
After being down 27-18 after the first quarter, the Celtics cut the deficit to 4 points at the half. The Pistons then proceeded to outscore the Celtics 29-13 in the 3rd and 22-17 in the 4th.
Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee both scores 16 points, a game high, and Rajon Rondo flirted with a triple double, notching 8 points, 9 rebounds, and 15 assists. Box score below, highlights...
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- So much for jet leg.
Three days after flying across the Atlantic and back for a game in London, the Pistons came out Sunday and beat the Boston Celtics, 103-88.
"We got into the gym when we got back, just to get the jet lag out of here and get some shots up," said Brandon Knight, who finished with 15 points. "We had some great workouts and...
It was the kind of night where nothing seemed to go right for Orlando. Even with a chance to win the game.
Arron Afflalo was trying to force the action, something Orlando was not doing for much of the previous three quarters as the team tried to bounce back from a rough second and third quarter. Orlando finally had the urgency to try and push and impose its will on Charlotte...
Highlights from tonight's overtime loss above. Celtics box score below.
The Orlando Magic's last two victories have come against division leaders. They just haven't been able to get the job done against teams below .500.
Orlando will try to avoid a seventh consecutive defeat to an opponent with a losing record when the Dallas Mavericks seek a seventh straight road win in this series Sunday night.
After ending a 10-game skid with a 104-101 victory...
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Shawn Marion had 20 points, and O.J. Mayo and Vince Carter scored 15 apiece as the Dallas Mavericks fought off a late Orlando surge and beat the Magic 111-105 on Sunday night.
The Mavericks led by 13 in the fourth quarter, before the Magic pulled within a basket in the final minute.
Dallas earned its seventh straight road victory in its series against Orlando...
The Boston Celtics' recent roller-coaster ride of results has taken another downward dip. That's the same trend they've been on against the Detroit Pistons lately.
The streaky Celtics look to get back on track Sunday night when they visit a Detroit team playing for the first time since its trip to London.
After losing four straight Dec. 27-Jan. 2, Boston won six in...
8 a.m. ET: Not having Derrick Rose has not turned out to be much of a problem for the Chicago Bulls. Then again, that should not be much of a surprise, given their leadership.
Former Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau is the head man in Chicago, of course, and under his direction the Bulls have not let the absence of the former NBA Most Valuable Player hold them back. The Bulls...
Well, that was unfortunate. Last night, the Magic fell to the lowly Charlotte Bobcats. Over their last four games, the Magic have had big wins over the Los Angeles Clippers and Indiana Pacers, while dropping the ball (bad pun, but appropriate) to the Washington Wizards and Charlotte Bobcats. Or you can look at it like this; our two wins were against teams with a combined 56-25 and...
