Olowokandi/Blount Trade Rumors Have CooledFrom The Boston Herald:
“There’s nothing going on,” Celts coach Doc Rivers said, addressing the heavy trade rumors of recent days. “Nothing today.”
In fact, according to sources yesterday, discussions have actually cooled. The revelation that the Celtics have been talking with Minnesota, Memphis (this one appears dead), Cleveland and Denver about Blount appears to have the teams involved pausing to rethink their positions.
From The Boston Globe:
Meanwhile, Olowokandi, like Blount, sounded very much like a player prepared to move on.
''You have to be [prepared], whenever that materializes," said Olowokandi, who learned from his agent after Minnesota played New York Monday that something might happen. ''Then, you adapt to it, be it a townhouse, a million-dollar home, or a hotel."
A Boston Globe columnist writes about going surfing with Olowokandi and how the player wouldn't be a good fit for the Celtics.
