NBA mock draft: C's shoot for Anderson

John Wall and Evan Turner are holding steady at 1-2 in the latest edition of WEEI.com's NBA mock draft, but there have been some changes in the middle of the round, which is as unpredictable as any in recent memory. With Nevada forward Luke Babbitt's stock rising, look for the Celtics instead to turn to Oklahoma State shooting guard James Anderson with the 19th pick. Read the complete mock draft at the Green Street blog.

Reports: Bruins shopping Tim Thomas
By: DJ Bean

Multiple reports have indicated the Bruins have been trying to trade goaltender Tim Thomas. Such talks were expected, as the former Vezina Trophy winner lost his starting job to Tuukka Rask last season and carries an annual cap hit of $5 million. ESPN is reporting that the Bruins have received calls from interested teams following Montreal's trade of Jaroslav Halak to the Blues, while Comcast Sportsnet, who mentioned talk of such chatter first on Monday, has indicated the Sharks, Flyers, and Lightning could be in on Thomas. The 36-year-old went 17-8-8 last season for the Bruins with a goals against average of 2.56. For more on the Bruins, check the Big Bad Blog

Gammons on Big Show: Sox need Ellsbury
By: DJ Bean

Hall of Fame baseball analyst Peter Gammons joined The Big Show on Monday to discuss a variety of topics, including Manny Ramirez' return to Fenway, the end of the steroid era, and the Red Sox' recent surge. Ramirez, who was suspended for 50 games last season, should make the Hall of Fame in spite of being more officially linked to performance-enhancers than the likes of Barry Bonds, according to Gammons.

 

 

"Manny Ramirez is unquestionably a Hall of Fame player," Gammons said. "There's no doubt about it in terms of ability. The question is how much of this is going to be a moral issue. I think in time it will go away, I really do, and I think Manny will make it in."

 
Gammons also added that the young crop of elite players in what is perceived to be the post-steroid era should put fans in a lighter frame of mind, making them a bit more lenient on players such as Ramirez.

Chiarelli doesn't expect deal with Oilers
By: DJ Bean

 Speaking with members of the media on Monday in a conference call, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli indicated he doesn't expect to get a deal done with Edmonton Oilers GM Steve Tambellini involving the first and second overall picks of Friday's NHL draft, the latter of which the Bruins own. 

 

"I spoke to Steve on the weekend and we really didn't discuss that in any detail," Chiarelli said. "After speaking with Steve, I think he probably has these two guys as close as we do. Neither of us are really committed to moving forward on that type of discussion. We spoke briefly on the weekend and I would imagine that we're going to talk again at some point but right now, if the draft was tonight, I'd say there'd be no deal."
