Report: Sox talks for Upton on 'back burner'

According to FoxSports.com, which cited major league sources, the Red Sox' talks with the Diamondbacks about outfielder Justin Upton are now on "the back burner" after the two sides were able to achieve "little momentum for a trade." The report suggested that the Sox appeared to be an early frontrunner for the outfielder, but that their negotiations had slowed.

 

The teams were discussing three- and four-way trades, with the FoxSports.com report suggesting that a direct deal between the two clubs would require the Sox to include a combination of Daniel Bard, Jacoby Ellsbury, Ryan Kalish and Casey Kelly. The report indicated that 15 teams have expressed interest in Upton, and that an unspecified team was making a push for the 23-year-old, five-tool talent.

Delonte: C's know I'm not a bad person

Delonte West had the ideal scenario to return to the court on Wednesday night and he took advantage, scoring 12 points, grabbing five rebounds and handing out four assists to lead the bench in the Celtics' 114-83 win over the Wizards at TD Garden. 

 

After playing in practice and in the preseason with the team, West was making his official debut back in a Celtics uniform after serving a 10-game NBA-imposed suspension for off-court misconduct. The Celtics gave the once-troubled guard one more chance, signing him shortly after Minnesota waived him in the summer.  

 

“It felt great," West said. "For a minute there in the summertime I thought I wouldn’t see an NBA court again. I thank the Lord, ownership here, the coaching staff, and Danny Ainge. They know what I am about. I’m just blessed to have this opportunity to do what I love to do. They knew the difference between a bad decision and a...

Cruise control: C's blow by Wizards

Paul Pierce led all five Celtics starters in double figures with 23 points while Rajon Rondo added 12 points and 13 assists as the C's routed the Wizards, 114-83, Wednesday night at TD Garden. 

 

Shaquille O'Neal missed just one of his seven shots from the floor and had one of his most effective games yet with 13 points and six rebounds in 22 minutes as the Celtics outscored the Wizards 56-28 in the paint. The Celtics led just 41-38 with 5:30 left in the second quarter before going on a 12-0 run en route to building a 60-44 halftime lead. The Celtics built the lead up to as many as 37 as the Wizards scored just 39 points in the second half.  

 

Delonte West entered the game for Ray Allen with 3:12 left in the first quarter, marking his first appearance in a Celtics uniform since the 2006-07 season. He sat out the first 10 games serving an NBA-mandated suspension for off-the-court indiscretions. His first...

Brady 'doing well' after missing practice

FOXBORO — Despite the fact that he missed practice Wednesday because of injury, quarterback Tom Brady expressed confidence that he’ll be good to go for this Sunday’s game against the Colts at Gillette Stadium.

After he missed his second consecutive Wednesday practice with what was described on the injury report as “right shoulder/foot,” Brady spoke to reporters on a national conference call. He was asked, “You were not seen in the media portion of practice today. Can you talk about how you’ve been doing lately and how you’re feeling?”

“I’m doing well. I’m doing well,” Brady responded. “I’m looking forward to the game this weekend.”

Brady missed practice last Wednesday and was limited in the days leading up to the Sunday night game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh because of the same reported injury. In that contest, he...
