No games on the schedule for the Celtics or Bruins Tuesday night, but both will be back in action tonight north of the border as the Celtics take on the Raptors and the Bruins take on the Canadiens.

Trade rumors have been swirling around the Celtics over the last month or so, but Kevin Garnett says he "bleeds green".

On the football side of things, Mike Giardi reports that the Patriots are a bit hesitant to give cornerback Aqib Talib a multiyear deal, for fear that he won't work hard enough upon earning the money in a new contract.

Report: Celtics amend Johnson, Jerebko guarantee date to July 7

The Boston Celtics have reportedly agreed to amend the guarantee date for Amir Johnson and Jonas Jerebko's contracts to July 7th instead of July 3rd, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reported.

The Celtics now have until July 7 to decide whether or not to waive the duo to make more cap space to potentially sign Kevin Durant and another near max-salary player.

The Boston Globe reported on Thursday that the Celtics will likely guarantee the second year of Amir Johnson’s contract.
