The hot word today is that it's a two-team race for Brent Barry's services. And the Celtics aren't one of those teams.
Says the Arizona Republic's Paul Coro:
Barry only whittled his candidate list to San Antonio and Phoenix, leaving them to wait for an answer Wednesday.
Each team is offering a veteran's minimum contract that includes the 2008-09 season, but the Spurs are believed to be sweetening the pot with a third year, on top of the emotional pull of teammates he has played with since 2004.
Barry also had been considering Boston, Houston and Dallas. He cleared waivers Tuesday morning.
Back to hoping for P.J. Brown and Sam Cassell we Celts fans go.
