Here's the latest on the Celtics, who suffered a resounding, 32-point defeat in Philadelphia last night….
- Coach Doc Rivers isn't anticipating any major moves in the next week, as he tells Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. "I'm sure there will be more rumors, there's nothing you can do about that," Rivers said. "We pretty much know what we want to do…. Like I said a week ago, I'd be surprised if we did anything. Obviously, if we find someone out there who wants to give us a player, we'll take them."
- The Celtics don't intend to trade any of their expiring contracts for young players with uncertain futures, a source tells Washburn.
- Jermaine O'Neal is still debating between season-ending surgery or a cortisone shot for his injured wrist, says Washburn.
- Also within Washburn's piece, Rivers says he isn't considering assigning E'Twaun Moore to the D-League.
- Dan Duggan of the Boston Herald doesn't believe the Celtics will make a trade, but cautions that pre-deadline comments made by Rivers and GM Danny Ainge last year gave no indication that the Kendrick Perkins deal was coming (Twitter links).
