Earlier tonight on NBATV's primetime show called "Gametime," host Matt Winer reeled off a Top 5 list of questions to NBA reporter David Aldridge. The 4th item on the list (in ascending order) asked about two free agents from the world champion Dallas Mavericks: Tyson Chandler and Caron Butler.
Without being prodded to name teams, Aldridge described how the Celtics don't have many players signed (true), are in desperate need for a center (no offense, Jermaine) and that they are "looking very hard at Tyson Chandler."
Take that for what you will, and you can even watch the video below to judge for yourselves, but it would certainly be huge if Danny Ainge could somehow pull that off. Maybe it's tied to the sign-and-trade rumors that Sean Deveney of the Sporting News first reported. Maybe Ainge has even crazier ideas. Either way, if they were to land Chandler, Rondo would be loving his new alley-oop partner. It would most likely destroy any dreams of Dwight Howard in green however, even if that is a long shot to begin with. Stay tuned.
