In the non-trade trade news department.
The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics hate each other, an animosity that extends into the front offices of the two teams. …Not really.

DEAL OR NO DEAL?
Chicago is the most recent team to be connected to the Lakers center, this time in a possible swap for Carlos Boozer.
