Yahoo's Adrian Wojonarowski reports the Celtics were willing to try to keep Michael Sweetney around… stashing him in the D-League to get him into playing shape because they think he's got NBA talent.
But it seems Sweets has other ideas… and he's close to signing a deal in China.
I bring this up for 2 reasons: 1: The cheap buffet joke in the headline. 2: If he gets into any sort of shape in China… and the Celtics find themselves in need of a big man later in the season… don't be shocked if we see Sweets back in Boston. Doc and Danny seem to be holding out some hope for this guy.
