Twitter / @SeanDeveney: Celtics are obviously look ... via kwout
Hayes is a bit undersized but could be a decent Big Baby replacement. Last year he averaged 8.6 PPG and 8.7 rebounds.
After the success of last season, the worst thing the NBA could do was miss time because of a lockout. I can speak for all Celtics fans when I say we are ready to watch the team on this latest title chase even though the season is almost two months late. But we need the Celtics to show us they really do appreciate the fans like they say they do. I’m talking about...
Shane Battier, Carl Landry, Chuck Hayes — no report yet on whether Danny Ainge has called to coax Yao Ming, Dikembe Mutombo and Steve Francis out of retirement to officially revive the 2007-08 Houston Rockets.

The Boston Celtics are open to trading Rajon Rondo
Back before the NBA Lockout began and turned off almost every non-diehard NBA fan in the World, the Boston Celtics were involved in rumors that could have sent All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo to many different places around the NBA. These seem to come up every NBA off-season because Rajon Rondo is the Boston Celtics only real trade...
Danny Ainge wants the hoops world to know (or at least believe) that despite his point guard’s name appearing in all kinds of trade rumors lately, Rajon Rondo isn’t being shopped by the Celtics. From the Boston Globe: “Ainge said that the team’s greatest need is size, but said that he’s also got a point guard position (a backup) and wing positions to fill. He said the...
Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick has taken the Rajon Rondo trade rumors to the next level:
Ainge, the sources say, has recently discussed trading Rondo in a deal that nets Paul, but the Hornets don't appear interested in a two-team deal in which Rondo -- who has four years worth approximately $46 million left on his contract -- and Paul would switch places. So Ainge has been...
Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers and former Sox manager Terry Francona were tight. They still talk. But Tito's gone and Bobby Valentine is here now.
Doc was asked at a news conference today about his relationship. And he said
I got to meet him back when I was with the Knicks a thousand years ago. We used to live in the same neighborhood in Stamford. I went to go...
Earlier today, an NBA trade rumor had Chris Paul getting traded to the Boston Celtics. The deal would have sent Rajon Rondo to the New Orleans Hornets. However, according to sources close to Chris Paul, the Celtics can quit their daydreaming because Paul won’t sign an extension with Boston.
