USA Today


Article Summary:

The Boston Celtics are in need of veteran depth at the four, and Blake Griffin is about to get out of his current situation with the Detroit Pistons – could the two parties make for a good fit to finish out this season together? The New York Times’ Marc Stein notes both Boston and the Brooklyn Nets are interested, as a point of departure.
