Agent: Dooling, Celtics agree to 1-year deal

Keyon Dooling has agreed to return to the Celtics on a one-year deal, according to his agent, Kenge Stevenson. Dooling will sign for the 10-seasoned veteran minimum of $1.35 million, leaving the C's with their $1.96 million bi-annual exception intact.

The 32-year-old combo guard averaged 4.0 points and 1.1 rebounds in 14.4 minutes over 46 games for the Celtics last season. He played all 20 playoff games as well, shooting 39.3 percent from 3-point range in the postseason. Vice president of the NBA Players Association, Dooling also brings 12 years of veteran NBA experience to the C's locker room.

Dooling adds depth to an already deep Celtics backcourt that now includes Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, Jason Terry and Courtney Lee.

By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox announced Tuesday that they have traded utility man Brent Lillibridge to the Indians for minor league reliever Jose De La Torre.

De La Torre, 26, is 1-0 with a 3.37 ERA in seven games at Triple-A this season. He had a 2.80 ERA and a 7-1 record for Double-A Akron.

Chiarelli: Bruins 'not standing still'

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli assured fans and followers of the team that he is paying close attention to what chief rivals in the Eastern Conference are doing to get better. During the press conference at TD Garden Tuesday to announce the contract extension for coach Claude Julien, Chiarelli said he's not "ignoring" the moves by the Rangers and Flyers to address their needs. 

Specficially, the Rangers acquired star forward Rick Nash from Columbus in a trade on Monday.

"He's a real good player, very good goal-scorer, big strong player," Chiarelli said. "I don't really want to get into details as far as our negotiations and discussions with Columbus. The fact that the Rangers got him, I think it's going to help their team. They're obviously in our conference and we play them more than we would play a team in the Western Conference."

Meanwhile the Flyers have a 14-year, $100 million offer sheet...

Horton (concussion) cleared for contact
By: DJ Bean

Speaking at Claude Julien's press conference Tuesday, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli gave updates on the Bruins who finished last season with injuries. The most notable update regarded the status of Nathan Horton, who has been knocked out of the last two seasons with concussions.

"Nathan Horton has been cleared for contact and by all accounts from our medical staff will be ready to play when it comes time to play," Chiarelli said. 

Chiarelli added that Patrice Bergeron's oblique injury is "completely healed" and that the team expects Adam McQuaid (concussion) and Tyler Seguin (hand surgery) to be god for training camp in September.

"Adam McQuaid has been completely cleared," he said. "Seguin is on his road to recovery in his initial timeframe. It may be sooner than that."

Lester to start Saturday vs. Yankees

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine told reporters in Texas after his team's 9-1 loss against the Rangers that left-hander Jon Lester will make his next scheduled start against the Yankees in New York this weekend. Though Valentine said before the contest that he would wait to talk to Lester before making a decision about whether the left-hander -- who gave up a career-high 11 runs in four-plus innings on Sunday -- would start against the Yankees, the two decided that the best course of action was for him to stay on turn.

Lester may throw to hitters in a simulated setting on Wednesday as a tune-up, but the pitcher expressed confidence to Valentine that he can recover from a lengthy struggle that now has him in possession of a 5-8 record and 5.48 ERA.

"We got a nice proactive plan. He’s going to throw Wednesday -- maybe throw to a couple of hitters, get a little feel for a couple of his pitches," Valentine told reporters. "He...
