ESPN is reporting that Damon Stoudamire is close to a buyout with the Grizzlies within the next several days. They also report that the Celtics and Suns are the favorites to sign him as a free agent. Talks are being impacted by Sam Cassell's situation with the Clippers. Reports are that he could be traded or bought out as well. Either player would more than likely jump at the chance to join league leading Celtics so it would be a matter of whether the Celtics are really interested or not.
