Ric Bucher is reporting that the Grizzlies are interested in Courtney Lee and that the Celtics are interested in adding a big for the stretch run.
The Grizzlies are not done dealing, according to multiple sources -- they're just not looking to do any more stripping. The Grizzlies are far enough under the luxury tax that they're willing to utilize at least part of their $7.5 million trade exception to add some perimeter help. Acquiring SG Courtney Lee, who Boston would consider flipping for some frontline help, was discussed but the Celtics aren't looking just to drop salary but add size. That, of course, is if they continue their current run since Rajon Rondo went down; the winning streak apparently has GM Danny Ainge feeling an obligation to KG and Paul Pierce to give them whatever he can to take one more shot rather than move one of his veterans and begin rebuilding.
Aside from Memphis' interest in Lee, not a lot of new news here, but interesting.
It doesn't sound like this has to be a straight two team deal. A third team (looking for cap relief) could get involved sending us a big man and getting back the trade exception and a 2nd round pick or something like that.
