You would think that there would be more Celtics news out with players in Boston now and working out. But it seems to get slower and slower. Today was bereft of news and even the blogs didn't have much going till later in the day. But there are a few things to pass on.
Last night 2 of the Hall of Fame inductees had ties to the Celtics: Dave Gavitt, who served as CEO of the Celtics for a time and Dominique Wilkins, who played for the Celtics in 1995.
Word is that Denver is looking to move a couple of their bigs and are looking for a shooting guard. Here is a quote from a Hoopsworld article:
"After speaking to a source close to the Nuggets, it appears that the team may be planning to move some of their big men in the near future as many have speculated.
"Signing Evans is not a 'checkers' move, as Mark Warkentien likes to say, but a 'chess' move. It is a move designed to set something else up," the source explained."
While this may mean nothing for the Celtics, it is possible they may offer one of their bigs to Danny for one of our SG's. While we wouldn't want Martin with his bad knees and even worse contract, Evans is a very good rebounder and may catch Danny's attention.
Celtics Stuff Live has another great show planned for tomorrow night. Fabio Anderle will be their guest and he is the chief editor of Italian Celtics Pride and “second in command” on Celtic-Nation. I am sure he will have some good information on European prospects along with some good insights into the Celtics.
Hmmmm... Remember how Ainge was often linked to rumors of Andre Miller and Nene coming to Boston? I remember this rumor popping up on several occasions. If there were at least some talks with Ainge and Kiki Vandeweghe, I wonder if Ainge strictly had interest in Andre Miller, or if there was an interest in Nene?
