Thanks to Scott at BostonSportz for this tidbit from the Chad Ford ESPN chat:
Chad Ford: (12:09 PM ET ) We keep hearing all morning that the Celtics were talking to the Kings about a deal for Nocioni. The Kings can move him again as long as they don’t package him with other players on their roster. The Celtics would send back Scalabrine, Tony Allen, Glen Davis and Patrick O’Bryant. However, a Celtics source says there’s nothing happening there. A Kings source, however, says it would be a possibility. I wonder why the Celtics WOULDN’T do that. Nocioni would be a great piece for them.
Interesting. He’d be an upgrade over Scal. POB doesn’t play anyway. Tony’s out until the playoffs (and even then he’s a wild card). And then there’s Baby.
I’d say do it… but then they would obviously need to sign someone else. We’d still need another big, at the very least.
