Reports: Brewer to sign with Mavs

The Celtics won't be able to complete their free agent double-play as Corey Brewer is headed to Dallas. Yahoo reports that Brewer will sign a multi-year contract with the Mavericks. The Celtics had interest in Brewer, as did a number of other teams, after he was unexpectedly bought out by the Knicks. There aren't many other options left for the Celtics who can have as many as two roster spots left to fill once they make a decision on center Chris Johnson who is working on a 10-day contract.

Frye: 'People aren't afraid' of Garnett

The Celtics and Suns play Wednesday night at TD Garden, the first meeting between the two teams since the Suns defeated the Celtics 88-71 on January 28 in Phoenix.


In that game, Kevin Garnett and Channing Frye had an altercation following a Frye three-point attempt late in the contest, as it appeared Garnett hit Frye in the groin area after the shot was released. Frye picked up a technical foul for his role in the altercation and Garnett was ejected.


At the Suns shootaround on Wednesday, Frye was asked about the confrontation.


“There’s a rule,” Frye told the Boston Herald. “There’s certain things you just don’t do and he just overstepped that boundary twice. It is what it is. There’s nothing else I can say about it. What am I going to do, slap him on the...

Lackey 'just tired of talking about last year'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- After turning in his first spring training out of the season, John Lackey reiterated that he is solely focused on the 2011 season and not concerned what transpired in '10.


"Honestly, I'm just tired of talking about last year," said Lackey after pitching two innings against the Braves at City of Palms Park Wednesday, allowing a run on four hits. He threw 41 pitches (25 strikes), one of which former Red Sox Alex Gonzalez hit for a solo homer. "I'm ready to move forward and work on this year."


Lackey explained that he threw all fastballs in the outing in an attempt to build up arm-strength. He did make an alteration in his approach compared to last spring training, when the righty didn't walk a batter until his final outing of the spring.


"I threw a bunch of two-seamers last year during spring training, trying to pitch more to contact," he explained....
