Glad someone in Boston does...
Donâ€™t be getting your hopes for Pau Gasol up just yet. Sources close to the situation poured cold water on a report that the Celtics have the best chance to land the Memphis star because they can offer Al Jefferson and a high draft pick.Â
The Celts definitely would like to get their hands on Gasol, but as was written here earlier in the season, the Grizzlies are not big on what the Câ€™s may have to offer. Expect more Gasol talk around the league, as the big man quietly asked owner Michael Heisley to deal him to a team with a chance to win. That discussion was supposed to stay private, but word leaked out.
Considering how Jefferson began going for double-doubles when he was mentioned in published rumors (with other assets) for Allen Iverson, might it be expected that he improves his numbers now.Â
â€œYeah, but I know this oneâ€™s not true,â€ Jefferson said, before pausing to add, â€œAt least I hope itâ€™s not true.â€
