Dooling announces surprise retirement

After 12 seasons in the NBA, Keyon Dooling announced his retirement on Thursday. The Celtics subsequently waived the veteran guard for the purpose of clearing a roster spot just over a week before the team opens training camp for the 2012-13 season.

"Keyon has decided that he has given the NBA 12 good years and that it’s time to pursue other interests and spend more time with his family. He will never forget his time in Boston with the Celtics," Dooling's representative, Kenge Stevenson, announced in a statement. 

Dooling, 32, averaged seven points in his 12 seasons, including 4.0 points a game in 46 games for the Celtics last season. He also played for the Clippers, Heat, Magic, Nets and Bucks over his career. 

“We’ll miss Keyon’s spirit and energy, both on and off the court,” Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said in a statement. “The whole Celtics family wishes...

Seguin to play in Switzerland

With the NHL lockout having pushed back the start of its season, Bruins forward Tyler Seguin signed with EHC Biel in Switzerland and is expected to report on Saturday and be ready to play as early as next week, the team announced on its website. According to the announcement, Seguin's initial commitment will run through Dec. 31. (Also in the announcement, in offering a summary of Seguin's career, there is mention of the "amusing random episode" that he was disciplined by the team for sleeping through meetings.)

The 20-year-old led the Bruins last season with 29 goals and 67 points in 81 games.

Winslow: Playing with pain 'doesn't matter'

FOXBORO -- New Patriots tight end Kellen Winslow spoke for the first time Thursday since agreeing to terms on Tuesday and joining the team in Wednesday's practice. The star tight end was a first-round draft pick of the Browns in 2004, chosen sixth overall out of Miami.

But since, Winslow, 29, has battled chronic knee and leg injuries. Two games into his rookie season, he broke his right fibula and was expected to return in time for the season opener in 2005. But in May of that year, he was involved in a motorcycle accident and was thrown from the bike, tearing his right ACL. His first breakout season came in 2007, when he had 82 catches for 1,106 yards and five touchdowns.

Since 2006, Winslow has played all 16 games in five of his last six seasons, though he admitted Thursday to playing with a great deal of pain in the right knee.  

"Yeah, but it doesn't matter," Winslow said when asked if he's playing in pain. "I think...
