Boston Cetics Rumors
A source told Sporting News that nothing has been worked out yet between Prince and Celtics team president Danny Ainge. The two are planning to meet, though, and will go from there. Ainge and Prince (whose contract is up this summer) could simply agree to a buyout, which would allow Prince to become a free agent and sign on with a contender. He would have value for contenders in need of wing depth, like the Clippers (Prince is from Los Angeles) or the Spurs (where Kawhi Leonard is recovering from a torn ligament in his hand).
The Celtics have invited former Penn State guard Tim Frazier, Kansas State swingman Rodney McGruder, and Indiana forward Christian Watford to training camp, according to reports. With Colton Iverson signing with a team in Spain and Mike Moser likely headed to another training camp, the Celtics will enter camp with 21 players. Chris Babb and Chris Johnson are under nonguaranteed contracts and the club has yet to announce the Evan Turner deal, making their 15-man roster rather uncertain. Center Vitor Faverani remains under contract as well as Joel Anthony, who accepted his $3.8 million option for next season. Training camp is likely to remain at the team’s Waltham practice facility and not at Salve Regina in Newport R.I.
Adrian Wojnarowski: As Dallasbasketball.com says, Celts/Mavs talked some Rondo. Celtics like Larkin, but how do Mavs take contracts and keep space for Howard?

Marc Stein: Even after ACL tear, Boston asking a lot for Rondo. Yet as we discussed Friday AM on @MikeAndMike, teams out there DO think Rondo next to go
