Keep in mind that this comes from Peter Vescey, but he seems to think that the Celtics are close to making a deal for the Grizzlies' Pau Gasol. He mentions this in his column today:
No wonder, an enlightened source revealed to Hoop du Jour, Ainge has offered anybody and everybody for Pau Gasol and anyone else the Grizzlies want to discard in the deal to make it happen.
Again, until then, the Celtics, probably the Grizzlies, too, are on their own, while Rivers and Fratello coach from weakness. Should Ainge start to warm up in the bullpen (a la Gregg Popovich replacing Bob Hill when Tim Duncan joined forces with David Robinson), I suspect Boston may be on the brink of acquiring Gasol.
Vescey did announce a week before the trade to bring Walker back to Boston that Danny was going to do so. He also has been equally wrong about other things but it is worth thinking about.
