Boston Celtics Daily Dish: Mix and Match Monday

Good morning, Boston Celtics fans!

I have to confess: I’m dying over here!  No NBA!  No NHL!  And the Boston Red Sox just are not worth watching right about now.  Man, summer is dragging me down.

Looking at the bright side, Team USA is tuning up for the FIBA World Cup, which begins on August 30.  Last night, the boys faced Brazil in an exhibition game in Chicago, and a certainly University of Kentucky alum shone brightly:

Fear the Brow!  And read more about the game over at NBA.com’s Hang Time blog. Wondering what Paul Pierce is up to lately?  How about chilling with Al Pacino himself?

Yep – slow news month.

I don’t know how much gas is left in his tank, but Shawn Marion will reportedly sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers in his quest to win a second NBA championship ring.  

And it would seem that the Cavaliers are also looking to sign Ray Allen . . . although that move wouldn’t really make a ton of sense for the Cavs, who have other issues to address.

 

Love it or hate, now that Kevin Love’s trade seems to be set in stone, trade rumors will begin to swirl over the heads of other NBA stars.  Rajon Rondo, enjoy the spotlight.  

Here’s a snippet of the article:

The Celtics are accumulating young talent and draft picks, and they already have a significant war chest. However, it was not the package that the Minnesota Timberwolves wanted. They were hoping to hit two birds with one stone in that trade, but it was a long shot even before Cleveland became a player.

Now, with the tweet above, another aggressive gambler, the Sacramento Kings who are eager to make a splash (even if it sacrifices the long term) are willing to take Rondo despite his possible departure.

The Kings let go of promising rookie Isaiah Thomas and signed aging Darren Collison in a head-scratching move. It seems like they were really grooming Rondo for the starting “one” spot.

The only reason this story interests me is because we have heard about Sacramento’s desire to land Rajon numerous times before, so when it comes to rumors, Rondo-to-Sacramento has far more substance to it than most of the other garbage out there.

Enjoy!
