The Celtics are still interested in acquiring OJ Mayo, but they may have to do so via sign-and-trade.
"The Celtics still have interest in OJ Mayo, and right now they are not the position to give OJ the kind of money he's looking for," Blakely said. "But certainly with sign-and-trade possibilities then all of a suddent OM becomes a player the Celtics might make a run at."
It’s not the craziest thing someone has said on Twitter, but Evan Turner tweeted Monday that the Celtics should retire his number.
It was a joke, of course, as the former Celtic was reacting to news that Isaiah Thomas had said he liked the No. 11 and would change his jersey number if so many people in Boston hadn’t already purchased his No. 4 jersey.
After Turner joked that No. 11 was going to be retired, Thomas joked back that he would wear No. 11 as a tribute to the current Trail Blazer.
Prior to being traded to Boston, Thomas wore No. 22 for Sacramento and No. 3 for Phoenix.
