Scal Wants to Return to Celtics

Brian Scalabrine's chances of re-signing with the Boston Celtics took a pretty hefty hit (both literally and figuratively) on Wednesday when the team elected to sign Shaquille O'Neal. The signing brings Boston's roster to 14 players (including Rasheed Wallace), and, if Luke Harangody signs a contract as expected, there simply won't be room for Scal. Despite that, Scal's still holding out hope, as he recently told Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe

"I don't know what my plans are," he said outside of Holland Community Center in Dorchester. "I'm just keeping it wide open. I've got good offers overseas, but my goal is to play in the States for one more year and see what comes from it."

"Is (playing in Europe) what I want to do? No. I want to play for the Celtics," he said. "I want to keep grinding out. I want to win another championship. I really want to see what Shaq's like."

He was representing the Celtics at their Feed the Children Program when he spoke to Washburn, and I think it's important to note that Scal isn't making these various appearances in the hopes that they will somehow help him earn another contract, just in case there are any people out there asinine enough to think he's playing that card. 

"The thing you have to realize is I don't sweat things out of my control," he said. "I am not doing this (community event) to get signed. I am not feeding children to be signed. I am feeding children because children need to be fed."
