According to Doogie Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com, the Wolves are interested in Avery Bradley and/or Courtney Lee:
To get Boston’s Avery Bradley, the Wolves would have to sacrifice Derrick Williams and a future first-round pick, according to a league source. That’s not happening.
Another name to keep an eye on are Boston’s Courtney Lee, whom Adelman likes, according to a team source. Lee played for Adelman in Houston.
But another team source said the Wolves were not inclined to offer a four-year deal, which Boston eventually did, when they talked with Lee’s representative last summer. In other words, the contract could bother the Wolves.
Williams is the former #2 overall draft choice who hasn’t really panned out. He can stay in Minny, for all I care.
In other news rumors, Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski says the Celtics are shopping Fab Melo for rotation depth:

DOWNWARD FACING CELT
NBA players have very stressful lives on and off the court from the physicality to the mental awareness of the game. They need an outlet, a way to bring them back to center. Kevin Garnett, of the Boston Celtics, has found his calm and that’s yoga. Just watch the tenacious Garnett get his downward dog [...]The post Kevin Garnett Does Yoga. Yeah, Yoga. (Video) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
A somewhat short handed Red Claws team lost on the road 106-98 to the Reno Bighorns. Of note in this game, however is the debut of Doc Rivers' son Jeremiah, who has been on the inactive list since the beginning of the season with an ankle injury. Rivers finished with 6 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists and only 1 turnover in 22 minutes of play in his first game for the Red Claws...
The Celtics marched into Laker-land with dead feet and tired minds. You could see from the get go that the momentum they had built prior to the all-star break was drying up faster than Kevin Garnett's resolve.
We could argue and beat a dead horse about the lack of point guard play, but no one hardly speaks about the elephant in the room. The very real need for a rugged big...
The NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m., and so far nearly every member of the Celtics has been rumored in some sort of trade talks.
That list included Paul Pierce, who was reportedly mentioned in a deal that would send Pierce to Brooklyn in exchange for Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and a first-round pick.
Pierce, now 35 years old, has spent his entire 14-year NBA career in...

The Celtics could be headed for a seismic shake-up, and it could be happening very soon.

Guards Luke Ridnour, J.J. Barea and Brandon Roy and forward Derrick Williams are all available, according to league sources. So is Memphis' first-round draft pick, which the Wolves own.

Rajon Rondo has been linked to a possible trade in several reports.
The greatest rivalry in all of basketball usually doesn't need any extra story lines to enhance the game but on a tragic night like yesterday there wasn't any way to ignore them. This was the Lakers first game without Dr.Buss and it clearly was an emotional one. The architect of many great Laker teams wasn't there to support his franchise any longer but the players seemed...
What it do?! Figured we should post this video that's been making the rounds everywhere in Celtics Nation. Knew about Kevin Garnett and his morning runs, but the yoga thing is new to me. Interesting that KG is still trucking hard at the age of 36, similar to a former Celtics great, Robert Parish, who also had his own unique way of staying in shape as he practiced martial arts.
