According to ESPN.com, which cited "a source close to the situation," point guard Mike Bibby is "headed to Miami" once he clears waivers following his agreement to a buyout with the Wizards. Bibby's agent, David Falk, told the website that he had been in touch with several teams and that nothing could be done until after the 32-year-old clears waivers, but the report suggested that Bibby had already made the decision to join Miami, where he could see significant minutes for a Heat team with title hopes.
Bibby walked away from a $6.2 million salary in the 2011-12 season as part of the buyout in order to pursue a championship this year. The Celtics were reportedly among the teams interested in the veteran, though with Rajon Rondo entrenched as the primary point guard, it would appear that other contenders (including the Heat) could offer the...
Add another name to the veteran free agent list, as ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that the Knicks will buy out Corey Brewer. Stein also reports that the Celtics are among the interested teams for his services along with the Spurs, Thunder and Mavericks. Brewer was obtained by the Knicks from Minnesota as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade. Brewer is not much of an offesive threat, but at 6-foot-9, he is valued as a wing defender.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox have released a statement saying Josh Beckett suffered a mild concussion after being hit in the left side of the head with a baseball during the team's batting practice prior to its game against the Twins at City of Palms Park Monday. He was sent home from the park and will be reevaluated Tuesday.
Beckett, who is scheduled to start Thursday against the Phillies, was standing in left-center field when a ball deflected off of coach Ino Guerrero's fungo bat. After being escorted off the field by the team's medical staff, the pitcher didn't have to go to the hospital, instead being treated at the park.
Beckett pitched in his first spring training game of the season Sunday night, giving up a run on two hits over two innings. He threw 23 pitches, 15 of which were for strikes. After the contest, he said, "If I'm healthy, the numbers will be there."

Delonte West sprained his right ankle during an informal workout on Sunday when he stepped on another player's foot and will be out for the Celtics game Monday night against the Jazz. West also is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns. This latest injury once again puts the Celtics in a bind as West is the only experienced point guard on the roster behind Rajon Rondo, following Nate Robinson's trade to the Thunder.
Rookie Avery Bradley, who has played 10 minutes in his five games since returning from the D-League, likely will back up Rondo for the time being.
