The Beasley speculation / rumors were discussed a lot yesterday, but here's a bit more from Sam Amico, who covers the Cavs for Fox Sports Ohio:

[T]he scuttlebutt before Tuesday’s game was that the Celtics might be looking to make a deal that involves sending veteran center Jermaine O’Neal to Minnesota and landing young forward Michael Beasley in return.

Amico followed up on that tidbit in a chat he held today:

[Q:] Will Beasley end up being a Laker?

Sam Amico: I could definitely see that. But I think he'll end up with the (gasp) Celtics. Sounds like that deal is close.

If it's JO for Beasley, I say get it done. It's not like Danny would be gutting the core of a championship contender at the trade deadline or anything. Sure, adding Beasley would probably change the identity of the team a bit, but this team could use it.
