As for Pau's future, Boston is the team I'm hearing strongest besides Chicago, whose interest in Gasol and long list of assets are well-chronicled. The Celts, though, also have a longstanding interest in the Spaniard and can package an inexpensive young player or two with future first-round picks in an offer that would also feature ailing center Theo Ratliff, whose contract expires next season while insurance pays most of this season's tab.
The issue for the Celts is whether to pursue Gasol between now and the Feb. 22 trading deadline or focus on their Paul Pierce-less plummet into Greg Oden-Kevin Durant lottery territory.
Danny isn't saying anything about a Gasol trade and that makes me think that he is truly interested and trying to work out a trade. I never really thought Iverson would come here because Danny was talking about it too much. Every year Danny makes a trade and he never shows his hand ahead of time. Stein is hearing strong rumblings about Boston. Danny isn't saying anything. There may be something to this.
