Tomorrow workouts start in Boston with Corey Brewer and Al Thornton. Ron Lewis is also scheduled for a workout. Beyond that, we don't haven any information on who is coming in and when. We did hear the Sean Williams turned down a workout in Boston and will be holding one in Houston that Danny plans to attend. Danny better get busy lining up workouts before all the good ones are all booked up. That is unless he plans on taking one of the 3 he already has lined up and doesn't need to do any more.
The Herald had a very good story on Al Jefferson's stock in the league. It seems that his stock is up all over the league. The consensus among execs is that if Al had gone to school and come out this year as a junior, he would be given some serious consideration with the 2nd pick and no lower than 3rd.
The Globe tells us that Donovan is out in Orlando and Stan Van Gundy is in. Sometimes I feel like I am playing 6 degrees of Rick Pitino. Almost every article these days has to pull some reference to Pitino. In this one, we learn that Stan's brother Jeff was on Pitino's staff in Providence. I would just as soon forget about Pitino. His days in Boston are very painful memories. Speaking of Pitino, The Mighty Q imagines what Pitino's advice to Donovan may have been.
There are various reports of Tony Brown's return to the Bucks as an assistant coach. Here is one from the Green Bay Press Gazette. Now we need to get the Grizzlies to take Chris Wallace so we can lure David Blatt over here.
The Grand Haven Tribune encourages the Pistons to try to make a trade for Paul Pierce. They suggest Wallace, Carlos Delfino or Flip Murray, the Pistons' No. 15 draft pick this season and a No. 1 next year for Pierce. What do you think?
The Shamrock Headband takes a look at the point guard question. I for one am firmly on the Rondo bandwagon. This kid has what it takes to be a star in the league. If Doc just gives him a chance, I expect a coming out party for him this season.
