Celtics having conversations with Kings about JJ Hickson, source says.
Hickson is a name we haven't heard before connected with the Celtics. He's best known as the guy the Cavs refused to part with for Amar'e Stoudemire, which then led to LeBron James leaving Cleveland because the Cavs couldn't get another star to pair with him. Hickson is very athletic, but has been described as clueless on the defensive end. Reports are the Kings want to get rid of him, so I guess how badly the Kings want to move him will determine how likely the Celtics are to acquire him.

Color me skeptical... but's out there.
While Boston Celtics boss Danny Ainge has said Rajon Rondo will not be traded, he is still actively seeking offers for members of the Big Three.

The LA Clippers are one of the most entertaining teams in the NBA and for good reason. They dunk. A lot. Chris Paul tosses a ton of alley-oops to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and it's amazing to watch. Well the OG Celtics had a few nice dunks of their own at Lob City. Check out the video below for some nice dunks including: Avery Bradley's slashing one-hander...
Danny Ainge worked on a variety of trade scenarios both big and small, but was unable to execute a deal.
Let’s do the Dwight Howard math for a moment. At some point tomorrow, the Magic organization will realize it can’t trade enough of their spare parts to find a roster that makes Howard happy. Then he will be quickly shopped by the team in an effort to get the best deal they possibly can before [...]
The Celtics pulled out a second win on their West coast road swing, beating the Golden State Warriors 105-103 on a Kevin Garnett jumper with 5.1 seconds remaining.
Talk about trading one of the Celtics four stars has changed into talk about what the Celtic can do to add a big body to help out Garnett and Brandon Bass. Danny Ainge was on WEEI with Dale Arnold and Kirk Minihane (A...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
But when I asked Pierce if he wanted to end his career as a Celtic, there wasn't much passion in his response. It's probably a cautionary reflex that comes with being in the NBA long enough to see every...

After scoring 21 points in a victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday, Garnett had a team-leading...
