The Celtics have had interest in Cleveland's Anthony Parker, and now it may be picking back up as the trade deadline looms. CBS Sports' Ken Berger reports that they have offered Marquis Daniels for Parker, who would then be bought out with cash from the Celtics. It may not be that easy. Daniels has what's known as "Early Bird" protection rights and could veto a trade. Jason Llloyd from the Akron Beacon Journal also reports that a Daniels-for-Parker deal is on the table, but the Cavs want the Celtics' No. 1 pick as well.

Players and owners aren't the only ones who would be affected by an NFL lockout. The town of Foxboro would be devastated to lose as much as $1.1 million in stadium ticket revenue generated by the Patriots, as explained in a story in The Attleboro Sun-Chronicle. "If the lockout occurs for a year, the town will be in serious financial trouble," town manager Kevin Paicos said. Finance director Randy Scollins added that the pending lockout "would basically wipe out Foxboro's capital budget."

If Boston College does not receive a berth into the NCAA tournament, it can look to Miami as a key reason why. BC dropped a 73-64 decision Wednesday night before 6,138 fans at Conte Forum, its second loss to the Hurricanes this season.
The Eagles (16-11, 6-7 ACC) came into the game looking to stay within reach of the No. 4 spot in the ACC — which brings with it a bye in the first round of the league tournament. Instead, they now find themselves just a game ahead of the eighth-place 'Canes (17-11, 5-8).
Joe Trapani had 16 points and 11 rebounds for the cold-shooting Eagles (30 percent). Teammate Reggie Jackson contributed 15 points. Reggie Johnson and Malcolm Grant led Miami with 15 points apiece.
BC trailed by as much as 22 points in the first half and 18 with 15:20 remaining the game but fought its way back to as close as five with 3:39 left after a 3-pointer from Corey Raji. But the...
Add another body to the list of Celtics' injuries woes. A source told CSNNE that Kendrick Perkins is expected to miss the final three games of the Celtics West Coast trip because of a strained left knee MCL. Perkins recently returned from surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee. He left Tuesday's game with the Warriors early in the third quarter and did not return after banging knees with Golden State's Steph Curry.
If Perkins is unable to go, the team's depth at center is down to Semih Erden, who has battled his own injury problems, and Glen Davis, who played most of the center minutes in Perkins' absence. This would further complicate the Celtics quest to bring in reinforcements before Thursday's trade deadline as Erden is reported to be the player most desired by potential trade partners.
Baseball America released its list of the top 100 prospects on Wednesday, and three Sox prospects made the cut. Shortstop Jose Iglesias ranked No. 52, right-handed pitcher Anthony Ranaudo at No. 67 and left-hander Drake Britton at No. 97.
Iglesias, who hit .285 in 57 games with Double-A Portland in 2010, has been compared defensively to Omar Vizquel. He is expected to start the 2011 season with Triple-A Pawtucket. Britton -- a 23rd-round pick in 2007 (714th overall) -- had a 2.97 ERA and 78 strikeouts in 75.2 innings pitched for Single-A Greenville in 2010. Ranaudo was a supplemental first-round pick (No. 39 overall) of the Sox in 2010. He was dominant at LSU in 2009 (12-3, 3.04 ERA, 159 Ks in 124.3 IP) but struggled in 2010 as he battled elbow issues.
