Boston's failing to launch a deal
08:06 AM ET 02.19 | The Celtics began the week ironing out a 10-day contract for Terrence Williams and eyeing a bigger acquisition. According to one opposing team executive, the Celtics "are one of the more active teams out there talking, but they really don't have a lot of great options. They don't have a lot to trade." It seems, too, that reports of some of the bigger Celtics names being "discussed" is more a matter of semantics than actual deep negotiation. Another source with knowledge of the two clubs told the Herald the Clippers have yet to make an actual and formal offer for Kevin Garnett. He added that the sides haven't spoken in days. "If a team calls you and says, 'I'd like to get so and so,' does that count as a trade discussion?"
