The lockout is preventing official team websites from using current players or NBA TV from showing anything recent. Looks like the bug is spreading to the rumor mill.
About 7 years ago, Danny Ainge seemingly had an obsession with high schooler Robert Swift. He was 7 feet tall with a skill set that made more than a few people think he could be something special.
Well, he wasn't. He never really panned out in the NBA, and even Danny passed on him after a summer league invite a couple of years ago. But that hasn't stopped the rumors. Now, his name is being tied to the C's once again… this time via Chris Forseberg

And that ends our "these are the most meaningless stats you'll ever read" portion of the post. I guess if Matt O'Donnell got a workout, then Swift is a definite option. The lesson here is if you are about 7 feet tall and you know what basketball is, then the Celtics are interested in taking a look at you.
