Is Solomon a Celtic, or a King?

The Herald says he's a King:

SALT LAKE CITY — The Celtics have traded Patrick O’Bryant to Toronto for Will Solomon, but they will still get the roster spot they desire.

Solomon is being sent to Sacramento for a conditional second round draft pick (similar to the Sam Cassell trade).

That gives the Celts two open roster spots, and they hope to fill at least one with a veteran big man over the next couple of weeks.

With their available bodies at 11, J.R. Giddens is being called up from the D-League and will be with the Celts when they play the Jazz tonight.

UPDATE:

The Globe has him as a King too… meaning we've got 2 open spots.  They also have this:

  • An NBA source also said the Celtics are interested in veteran center Calvin Booth, who just was acquired by the Kings from Minnesota. Boston could pursue Booth as a free agent if he is waived.
  • Also, the Kings have waived forward Mikki Moore, who might appeal to the Celtics. The well-traveled 10-year veteran played three games for Boston during the 2002-03 season.
  • The Celtics now have two open roster spots to add a free agent if they so choose.

      Danny opened the two roster spots for a possible Joe smith and Steph buy outs, that’s what I think.

      Hmm I am not sure about that…. I can’t see us leaning on Pruitt come playoff time. The Kings waived Sam I Am today, I can see Ainge brining Sammy back within 30 days.
      Mikki Moore sounds good to me. He is hard working Big who plays D’ and crashes the boards.
      Do we have enough room on our roster to pick up Joe Smith after acquiring Moore and Sam?

      Rafer Alstons been traded to Orlando. Interesting……

      Danno…we don’t exactly have a choice now, do we? Moore is a big body (7 ft., 225 pounds) who can come off the bench. We don’t need a superstar. We need a big who can come off the bench and be a role player. That’s what he’d do for us.

    • I bleed green in L.A.

      I like Moore over Smith anyway AND definitely over POB. He plays tough and he likes to stay in the middle and down low. Good fit for us.
      We still need bench scoring, so I think Marbury is the only option (even though he might be a cancer). But Marbury and House in the backcourt off the bench would give the Celts very good scoring options.
      Seeing Pruitt, Giddens and Walker get some time together before the playoffs would be nice too.
