Celtics Interested in Hawks Josh Smith

It appears the Lakers and Celtics are interested in everyone.  Daily rumors are flying with not much substance behind them, so take everything with a grain of salt.

I can’t wait for trading deadline to be over.

Team president Danny Ainge realizes that the Celtics won’t win the title and can only make the playoffs. That’s not good enough for a franchise that proudly flies 17 championship banners.

With the Big Three’s window now shut, Ainge is trying to land Atlanta’s Josh Smith and other young studs, while offering up Kevin Garnett. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen can also be had, for young players and draft picks. Rajon Rondo might be leaving, too, with the Lakers and Utah seen as possible destinations.
