Chris Sheridan: A source who has been in the know for years tells me that Joe Smith is keeping his fingers crossed that the Thunder do not find another trade for him now that he's back in Oklahoma City. Smith, the source said, would like to do a buyout and then sign with the Boston Celtics as this season's version of P.J. Brown.

PJ Brown is a much better defensive player and role player then Smith. I don't think Smith would be a significant pickup. It's tough to replace Posey and Brown, those two guys were huge off of the bench, esp. on defense.

I see a Joe Smith addition as PJ Brown all over again. Maybe a little less D but a little more offense.

Not surprising.

He knows the Celtics want him.

Why wouldnt he want to be on a team that has a chance for a title?

Boston does need someone like him.

Who doesn't want to go to the Celtics? Great city, good surrounding team, chance to win...this shouldn't be too surprising - especially coming from a guy in Oklahoma..

No it will take a little time for the Thunder to release him IF he doesn't get traded in the next 14 hours or so.

That's exactly what they need. They don't have a guy bigger than 6 foot 7 on their bench. They need a big man especially one like Joe Smith who can hit a 15 foot jumper with regularity.

Does anyone know when the deadline is where players have to be released from their current teams in order to sign with another team and be playoff eligible?

he's in the final year of his contract. If they cant trade him by thursday, they should just keep him

O'Bryant isn't in the rotation though and if Powe is any bigger than 6'7 it's by a millimeter. I remember seeing a shot of him and Pierce standing next to each other and Pierce looked noticably bigger than Powe did.

Celtics would take a bag of peanusts if it gives them a better and tougher bench... they know they will have a hard time getting through to the finals against teams such as the Cavs, Magic who are better then last yr... the Hawks who can always knock them off and if they do they will be hard press to beat most likely the LAKERS and if not them the spurs.....
the celtics gave everything up for last yr.. if they win this yr that will be it cause it will be another 20 yrs of rebuilding....
GO LAKERS!!!!!

That's what I keep wondering, and still can't figure out. Unless he's given them the feeling he'd like it done, but even then, would they do it just because it was his preference?

Everyone on Celtics needs to shoot themselves in the knee ( KG especially ).

There is such a big controversy out there that Playoffs were rigged to help NBA with recession. Lakers Versus Celtics is the big rivalry in NBA and what better way to earn money than Celtics and Lakers fighting off with the new 3 big ones on Celtics?


Atleast Warriors have true fans, not celebrities showing off their goods and hogging up the lower sections.

who says 4 sure that joe smith is goin 2 sign with you guys.when he got traded from the cavs, he said that when his contract was up, he would like 2 go back.so who knows, he might sign with the cavs instead.We have just as good of a shot if not better now that kg is hurt to win the title then you guys.we will just have to wait and see what happens

Cavs Potential Roster

PG:Mo,Boobie
SG:West, Pavlovic
SF:Lebron, Wally
PF:Big Ben,Smith, and Hickson
C:Z, Varejao

Cavs potential roster looks more like a title team then

Celtics Potential Roster

PG:Rondo,Pruitt
SG:R. Allen, House, Allen(When he returns)
SF:Pierce,Walker,Giddens
PF:Garnett(When he returns),Powe,Davis
C:Perkins,Smith, Scalabrine

Go Cavs.

Joe Smith himself saying he wanted to come to Boston in the role of this year's PJ Brown. does that answer your question?

Why because certain players don't go to other teams?

This rule has been in place for who knows how long, now that old veterans who would like to be a part of a winner go to a winning team.

Who thought PJ Browns old *** would actually be as big as he was, some pick ups are just chances other are just busts.

Its all apart of the game, I hate how lately people are *****ing about the rules just because they aren't going in favor of their home team.

no thats not the case at all lol...my team is the nets and i have absolutely no interest in joe smith since it wudnt really vault us into a championship contender...

i dont have a problem with FA's signing with a team...but lik with what happened with mcdyess going back to Detroit and teams just cutting vets midway through the season and they go to contenders for nothing...i just think there shud be some compensation going the other way or something cuz i dont lik the idea of this happening with 2 or 3 players every year...its just my view of things.

i know exactly what your saying. its like when players get traded and then waived and 2 days later they are back to their old team.

but its a good deal for everyone involved. the team no longer has to pay the vets and a contending team gets much needed help.

Lets say Marbury isnt bought ought by the Knicks before March 1. Hes off the table. Whats the C's next move? Mikki Moore? He is currently unemployed. Joe Smith would be nice. another big who can nail the jumpshot. Whiat Big Baby is tryng to be. Jason Williams has said to be trying to get reinstated and rumors say Clippers will buy em out. He could easily fill a need. Smith and Marbury is the dream scenario at this point. I honestly dont think we will get those 2 guys. Dannys smart though. He'll do something.

Joe Smith would serve as tremendous help for the Celtics. He will even be able to play some minutes at Center will needed as well. He is a very valuable vet and would be even more valuable to the Celtics since he fits in perfectly with the Celtics' veteran team almost. I know many teams would love to have a guy like Joe Smith out there.

I find it funny people are so shocked that Scal has fans. Hes playing is best basketball as a Celtic this year. Now that isnt allstar basketball but hes been a great help for us this season. All the radio shows and tv shows here in Boston all say Scalabrine has been one of are better bench players this season. Scal is white. But hes impressed me alot before his concussions.

Because they're a team that has the pieces to win it all.

Nobody wanted to be a Celtic before the big three, just like nobody wanted to be on the Lakers in 05 with just Kobe as the main piece. When a team's on the verge of making a deep playoff run all the vets want to flock to that team. There's nothing new with this concept, it's been this way for a long time :shrug:
