Atlantic Notes: Howard, Nets, Lin, Knicks, Celtics

The Celtics and 76ers are underway in Philadelphia as the C's look to go up 3-1 in their second-round series.  Here's the latest out of the Atlantic Division..

  • Despite all of the ups-and-downs of the Dwight Howard saga, Alex Kennedy of Hoops World (via Twitter) still expects to see the Magic big man land in Brooklyn with the Nets this summer.
  • The Knicks should prioritize signing Steve Nash this summer rather than re-signing point guard Jeremy Lin, opines Moke Hamilton of Sheridan Hoops.  Although Nash will turn 39 years old next season, Hamilton argues that he is a known and proven commodity.
  • Even though some have questioned the Celtics' ability to make a deep run in the playoffs due to their advanced age, Mike Petraglia of writes that head coach Doc Rivers isn't worried about his team's condition over the long-haul.  Win or lose this year, Boston appears likely to seek out a youth infusion this summer.
  • The Celtics will be holding a pre-draft workout in the next few days and will bring in a bunch of big men, sources tell Kennedy (via Twitter).
