Thanks to Scott at BostonSportz for this tidbit from the Chad Ford ESPN chat:

Chad Ford: (12:09 PM ET ) We keep hearing all morning that the Celtics were talking to the Kings about a deal for Nocioni. The Kings can move him again as long as they don't package him with other players on their roster. The Celtics would send back Scalabrine, Tony Allen, Glen Davis and Patrick O'Bryant. However, a Celtics source says there's nothing happening there. A Kings source, however, says it would be a possibility. I wonder why the Celtics WOULDN'T do that. Nocioni would be a great piece for them.

Interesting.  He'd be an upgrade over Scal.  POB doesn't play anyway.  Tony's out until the playoffs  (and even then he's a wild card).  And then there's Baby.

I'd say do it… but then they would obviously need to sign someone else.  We'd still need another big, at the very least.

  • All those guys for Noc? He’s a good piece, but that’s a lot of players to part with.

  • All that for Nocioni?

    I guess he had a pretty good year a couple years ago as an energy guy off the bench….. but I haven’t been impressed by him at all the last couple years. All I see from him is fouling guys and then having temper tantrums.

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    Still doesn’t fill our need for a big (or a guard now). Marbury or Joe Smith in the next 45 minutes…PLEASE!!! And get rid of Scal already…PLEASE!!!

    Getting Nocioni, and picking up Joe Smith and Marbury off waivers is a huge upgrade over those 4. Not to mention, I find it hard to believe Sactown has the roster space to keep all 4, so if needed boston could pick up whoever gets waived.

  • Nocioni?

    His contract is huge anyway. It would cost more for Nocioni than it would have if we had given Posey the contract he wanted. I’d take Posey over Nocioni any day.

    I’m waiting in major anticipation, I can’t stand the suspense – there is obviously something that is about to happen – I think the biggest question is – will it be in the next ten minutes 0r before march 8th – i.e – waiver deal for joe smith, starbury, giddens added to roster??? raja bell – any ideas?
