WALTHAM -- While the Celtics wait for resolution on a sign-and-trade deal with free agent David West, they have a notable shortage of traditional centers on the roster. That's true even if Jermaine O'Neal ultimately remains in Boston.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers isn't worried about that scenario because the team already has added Brandon Bass and Chris Wilcox who can play both the big forward and center positions. He also said that Kevin Garnett could play more center this year. "Kevin will play some five this year, which honestly I don’t think is a problem at all," Rivers said. "You can play him and Bass together. Either one can guard the five or the four so it makes us pretty versatile."
This is part of a league-wide trend. Beyond Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum, there are not many traditional back-to-the-basket centers left. "There’s two or three of them that are dominant anymore," Rivers said. "...
Jermaine O'Neal was at Celtics practice on Saturday while the team worked on a possible sign-and-trade deal that would bring free agent David West to Boston in a package that would reportedly include O'Neal and another player. The Celtics would need O'Neal's expiring contract that pays him roughly $6 million to make the trade work financially.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers couldn't comment on any future moves, but he did say, "Some of the decisions are in the player’s hands. That’s what the words 'free agent' mean."
O'Neal said that while he had no intention of playing for a rebuilding team like the Hornets, he understood the business.
"We’ve had conversations," O'Neal said. "I’ve been around too long not to understand. Some guys get bitter about it, this is a business and there’s really only three scenarios: Stay here, go to another contender or stop playing.
LANDOVER, Md. -- Just after arriving in the nation's captial for Sunday's game here with the Redskins, the Patriots announced they have released defensive back Sterling Moore while promoting cornerback Malcolm Williams from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster. The team also announced they had signed 30-year-old defensive lineman Eric Moore, who played in four games for the 2010 Patriots, recording a pair of sacks.
To make room for Moore's return to the Patriots, the team placed linebacker Jermaine Cunningham on season-ending injured reserve, after he suddenly showed up on Friday's injury report with a hamstring injury.
Sterling Moore made a name for himself when he made his first NFL start against the Jets on Nov. 6. While attempting to make a play on Plaxico Burress, he nailed teammate Devin McCourty in the right shoulder, injuring the cornerback and forcing McCourty to miss the next three games before returning last week...
The Patriots welcomed veteran defensive end Eric Moore back into the fold on Saturday, his agent has confirmed.
The 30-year-old Moore, who was with New England for the tail end of the 2010 season, finished last year with 13 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery, and provided some much needed depth for a New England defensive line ripped apart by injury. He was one of the team's final roster cuts out of camp this summer, and ended up spending the entire season with the UFL.
A six-year veteran who has also played with the Giants (2005), Saints (2006) and Rams (2006-2008), the 6-foot-4, 268-pounder will apparently take the place of Jermaine Cunningham on the roster. The Boston Globe is reporting that Cunningham will be placed on season-ending injured reserve with a hamstring problem.
