The headline says it all. From the Herald:
The Celtics made their pitch and the big man let it slide on by. The early word after his trade from Detroit to Denver was that McDyess would take a buyout and return to the Pistons, and that is looking even more certain now. Ainge spoke to Andy Miller, McDyess’ representative.
“We spoke,” Ainge said, “but I didn’t get any sense that we should be optimistic about it.”
I'm sure nobody is surprised by this, but since it's "news", I wanted to pass it along.
