Bucher: San Antonio's tool kit better than Celtics'

Ric Bucher checks in to break down the Spurs and the Celtics, and points to one big advantage for San Antonio - their bench.

The Spurs get 41.8 PPG from their bench, good enough for second in the NBA. They have one of the deepest benches in the league, allowing them to substitute just the right player in any given situation.

While Bucher refers to the Spurs bench as a full tool box, capable of finding the right tool at the right time, he calls the Boston bench, "A couple of screws and a piece of duct tape."

Ouch.

Report: Celtics secure meeting with Dwight Howard

In February, the Boston Celtics were involved in trade deadline talks with the Houston Rockets involving center Dwight Howard.

It appears the team still has interest in the free-agent big man. 

According to ESPN, the Celtics have secured a meeting with Howard after July 1.

Howard, 30, became a free agent after declining a player option that would have paid him more the $23 million in 2016-17
