If you didn't stay up to watch Lamont Peterson win a questionable decision against Amir Khan (decision aside it was a great fight) you may not see this until the morning. Normally I'd put this in the rosterbation, but I reckoned it was a big enough deal to put in a fanpost
Stein is now reporting that the Lakers have pulled out of the Chris Paul trade saga and are focusing their efforts on landing Dwight Howard, which is the far smarter move in my opinion. In addition, they have dealt the disgruntled Lamar Odom to Dallas for what sounds like nothing. The link is pasted below.
It will be interesting to see if Paul to the Celtics is revived and if we could get in on it and if the league would give it the ok. Probably not promising because the last reports were that NOLA would take Rondo instead of our players. That being said, the guys the Celtics have recently acquired and could conceivable be part of the deal - Bass and Jeff Green - can't be traded right now.
Should be fun to see what happens and here's the prediction we don't get Rondo (which is a complete reverse jinx)
