We’ve spent the last two weeks hearing O.J. Mayo and Courtney Lee rumors. We’ve also spent the last two weeks scratching our heads and saying, “Um, how?”

Keyon Dooling and Mickael Pietrus are reportedly pieces the Boston Celtics could use in a sign-and-trade for Lee. (Boston Globe)

Keyon Dooling and Mickael Pietrus remain candidates to return or be used in a sign-and-trade to perhaps acquire Courtney Lee from the Rockets, but the Celtics will have a clearer picture about other teams’ cap space when the Saturday deadline passes for matching offer sheets.

In other words, the Rockets want a draft pick or two from the Celtics (Dwight Howard is their ultimate goal, remember) and they might be willing to take on a couple of crafty veterans to make the money work. Perhaps this is possible after all, but Ainge still has to be a wizard of persuasion.
