According to an ESPN report, Lavin spoke with St. John's athletic director Chris Monasch Sunday night and was expected to have another discussion Monday.

 

The Boston Globe reported that one factor working against Skinner is his desire to bring all of his assistants from BC with him. St. John's wants someone on the staff with stronger ties to the New York AAU scene. Lavin reportedly would hire Dave Leitao, a former assistant at UConn and head coach at Northeastern (his alma mater), DePaul and, most recently, Virginia.

 

Multiple reports indicate St. John's also has interest in Temple's Fran Dunphy, Rhode Island's Jim Baron and Cornell's Steve Donahue, but none of those three has interviewed.

Perkins expects to play Wednesday

Kendrick Perkins missed his second straight game with tendinitis in his left knee on Sunday. Following the Celtics loss to the Spurs, he told WEEI.com he expects to practice on Tuesday and play on Wednesday against the Thunder. “I feel good,” he said, adding, “[I’m getting] a lot of rest, hitting the weights, pool, so it’ll be alright.” Even though he has his return in sight, that didn’t make watching the Celtics 94-73 loss from the bench any easier. “It sucked,” he said. “You always want to be on the court.” For more on the Celtics, visit the Green Street Blog.

Perk out, Robinson back

Kendrick Perkins will miss his second straight game with tendinitis in his left knee, Celtics coach Doc Rivers announced before the Sunday night game against San Antonio. Rivers sounded optimistic that Perkins would be able to return on Wednesday against Oklahoma City. "He's not going to play but I'm pretty sure he's going to play Wednesday," Rivers said. Rasheed Wallace starts in place of Perkins.
