Allen: Sit back and be ready

Although an outcome for the NBA lockout does not appear in sight, Doc Rivers and Ray Allen are looking at the positive side of the lockout.

"It will happen," said Rivers, "I'm just focusing on golf right now, but I like doing other things for sure."

"It's been a trying process, but a process nonetheless." said Allen, "It will be over soon. You sit back and be ready."

Gary Tanguay and Greg Dickerson discussed the lockout as well. Gary Tanguay believes the players and owners will start to change their minds after they start losing game checks.

"The owners almost always win in these things." said Dickerson, "The deal that is on the table now, the deal that was on the table three weeks ago, its not going to be there in two weeks. . . its going to be less and less and less."

Report: Celtics 'expected' to talk to Mavs about deal for Bogut

Report: Celtics 'expected' to talk to Mavs about deal for Bogut

The Celtics reportedly are "expected" to talk to the Mavericks about a deal for Andrew Bogut, according to scout.com, but negotiations would be "dependent on what bigger move Boston can make".

MORE TRADE TALK

Bogut, 32, is in the final year of his contract. The 7-foot center, while healthy, has played in only 26 games this year and is averaging just three points a game. But he's also averaging 8.3 rebounds in 22.4 minutes, and rebounding has been one of the Celtics' big areas of weakness this year. The C's rank 27th in the league in reboundinh, and 26th in defensive rebounding.

According to scout.com, the Mavs would part with Bogut for Tyler Zeller and one of Boston's first-round draft choices.
