The Herald’s Mark Murphy offers this update on the Celtics need for a guard:
The Celtics are reportedly on the verge of signing a guard to a 10-day contract — a hedge in case a more desirable player is available in another two weeks — though management was still sifting through possibilities.
Shelvin Mack, the Maine Red Claws point guard, remained with his team on its road trip. Jannero Pargo, the 32-year-old whose second 10-day contract with the Atlanta Hawks expired last week, also hadn’t been contacted.
Both guards are smallish, and a bad fit if either was asked to play next to Jason Terry. Leandro Barbosa, among other things, gave the Celtics some good backcourt size. . . .
The team will conduct an afternoon practice today in Denver in preparation for tomorrow night’s game against the Nuggets.
I’m unsure what report Murphy refers to in his article.

BEST OF MAXIM
Kevin Garnett mentioned that he was bringing his family to All Star Weekend with him and he was going to enjoy it because it was going to be his last. That set off a feeding frenzy of the media speculating that he was planning to retire at the end of this season. He sets the record straight about those comments in this interview. I sure wish Rondo was there with him. They'...
Kevin Garnett always seemed like a “downward dog” guy.
The Celtics center gave a look inside the preparation that makes him amazingly durable at the age of 36 in a series of advertisements for ZICO coconut water. Garnett’s work includes 5:30 a.m. runs on the beach and some calming yoga, which helps keep him from picking up those “dumb fouls” he was susceptible to early...
There is so much to look forward to during the NBA's All-Star break. The dunk contest, three-point shootout, the celebrities in the arena, the best-of-the-best NBA player's on one court and of course, what incredibly outlandish suit TNT's Craig Sager will wear.
For years Sager has worn some crazy looking suits which run the gambit of fashion mistakes. From mismatched...
Just five weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony hated Kevin Garnett. We all know the story; Anthony and Garnett were going at it in a tightly contested game back on Jan. 8. It got chippy and the two started jawing and before long, Garnett went below the belt like he normally does and allegedly said that Anthony’s wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
Now I’m not married but if...
STAYING IN BEANTOWN
Kevin Garnett has been mentioned in trade conversations, but the veteran All-Star forward says he will not waive his no-trade clause.
Kevin Garnett didn’t exactly make the dramatic All-Star game exit many Celtics fans had been hoping for when he cryptically leaked last week that this would be his last appearance in the event. He did take the floor as the starting center for the Eastern Conference, however, fulfilling his due diligence in the lineup and saluting the fans.
The big man does, after all, have a surging...

"Leave me alone Blake!"
Marc Stein of ESPN has a column up that touches on many of the trade rumors and rumblings around the league. A few quotes from it really jump out at me regarding the "Kevin Garnett lives in Malibu and is friends with Chauncey Billups so maybe he could be traded to the Clippers for DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe" story that won'...
Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Tuesday before the Celtics' 97-90 loss to the Denver Nuggets that a trade before Thursday's deadline would be unlikely, which may stun a few personnel people around the league.

With the NBA trade deadline knocking on the doorstep, the Boston Celtics have a ton of decisions to weigh in, which could essentially make this the toughest deadline in Celtics history.
Currently, the Celtics sit in utter silence after storming rumors consisting of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce this past week, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t talking trading places with players...
A Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan trade for Kevin Garnett will remain shelved unless Chris Paul pushes the idea with the Clippers' management.
