  2. Celtics trade for Courtney Lee done, but it got very complex

    Jul 20, 2012, 6:47 PM EST

    Courtney Lee, Paul George

    We told you a couple days ago that Boston had reached a sign-and-trade deal to get Courtney Lee from the Rockets — and that is a beautiful fit for Boston. They get a guy who can defend on the perimeter, knock down threes and come off the bench. A defensively better version of Ray Allen.…

    Sean Williams

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: With Jermaine O’Neal lost to season-ending wrist surgery, Boston decided to bring in Sean Williams as an extra big. The 25-year-old Williams is a great athlete and talented shot blocker, but his personal issues have kept him from living up to his considerable potential so far. Williams was dismissed from the…

    Greg Ostertag

    RENO, Nev. — Greg Ostertag was the first big-name veteran to sign with the NBA Development League when he decided to embark on a comeback with the Texas Legends a few weeks ago.

  8. Yi Jianlian recalled by Mavericks, solving all their problems

    Jan 9, 2012, 3:12 PM EST

    Yi Jianlian

    The Dallas Mavericks don’t just want one low-cost project big man to fill out their rotation. They want all of them. Dallas’ signing of Ian Mahinmi last summer has paid off nicely this year, and in an effort to find a similarly successful player on an equally affordable salary, the Mavs signed former lottery pick…

  11. Video: Mavs Sean Williams kisses the rim in warmups

    Dec 30, 2011, 4:49 PM EST

    Sean Williams

    Add that to your list of quirky pregame rituals. That is Mavs reserve Sean Williams. Really the best part of this is the obviously confused Rodrigue Beaubois, who must never have ever considered trying that before, let alone doing it in warmups in front of 18,000 people. Great find by KD at Ball Don’t Lie.

  12. What is wrong with 0-2 Dallas? A lot of things.

    Dec 27, 2011, 12:45 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks have started out 0-2. An ugly 0-2. They have been blown out by the Heat and the Nuggets on their home court, losing by a combined 33 points (and it wasn’t really that close, garbage time runs have made it look better than it was). What in the name…

    What you missed while out celebrating Boxing Day…. Kings 100, Lakers 91: We covered this one already in our game of the night. Nuggets 115, Mavericks 93: Mavericks forward Sean Williams threw up when subbed out in the fourth quarter of this game, which got a lot of laughs on the Mavs bench but pretty…

  15. Sean Williams, the NBA's favorite son, is headed to Israel

    Sep 1, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    Sean Williams was waived by the New Jersey Nets this past January, and no one missed him. Not even the Nets, who were struggling to notch their fourth win of the season at the time. Williams had chances to play. He had chances to succeed. He had chances to, well, do anything but screw up.…
