Romeo Langford is doing his part to help Boston-area healthcare workers who are on the frontline of battling the coronavirus pandemic. The former New Albany star, Indiana University standout and Boston Celtics rookie, announced Thursday on social media that he will be donating meals to healthcare professionals at New England Baptist hospital in Boston after accepting a challenge from teammate and fellow rookie Grant Williams.

“Grant, I accept your project frontline challenge. Our healthcare workers are true heroes and I’m thankful for what they’re doing to keep us safe. To thank them I am donating [by] delivering meals to New England Baptist Hospital in Boston,” Langford said in a post on Twitter, before challenging another of his teammates to follow suit. “To continue our efforts to feed thousands of healthcare workers Marcus Smart, I nominate you, you’re up next.”
Langford’s confidence didn’t stem from a conversation with the organization (nobody talked to him one way or the other) or a lack of rumors (his name was thrown around in some of them). The possibility of being traded simply didn’t occur to him. “I forgot I was in the NBA,” Langford said. “Not in the NBA, but like, I forgot people get traded. Thinking like college. If you’re there, you just stay there. … To be honest, I forgot I could be traded. That’s why. I wasn’t even thinking about it.”
League sources say the Rockets offered Capela to the Nets for a package that included Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince, which Brooklyn declined. The Celtics have a top-six-protected first from the Grizzlies that will become unprotected next year that they could dangle in a trade—but considering Memphis is currently eighth in the West, that pick is likely to convey this season—as well as rookie wing Romeo Langford. The Hawks remain the most likely destination for Capela, which would lead to a whole different set of possibilities.
The 10 episodes of On Point offer a look behind the scenes of the high-stakes world of AAU ball and the crop of high schoolers looking to make an impression. AAU alums Romeo Langford, who is now a member of the NBA’s Boston Celtics and Scottie Lewis, now at the University of Florida, are both main characters in the show, which spotlights their lives on and off the court.

While fellow rookies Grant Williams, Carsen Edwards, Tremont Waters and Tacko Fall earned headlines at the NBA Summer League, Langford was sidelined by offseason surgery on his right thumb. Now, months later, Langford is nursing a tweaked left groin that has kept him out of live action during the first two days of training camp. Neither he nor the Celtics appear to be very concerned with the most recent setback. Langford told Celtics.com that he “should be fine coming up here pretty soon.”

The alleged offers — $35,000 or more for Williamson and $20,000 for Langford — were purportedly discovered among “text messages, e-mails and other documents from 2016-17 … proving that Nike executives had arranged for and concealed payments, often in cash, to amateur basketball players and their families and ‘handlers,'” according to the motion filed in U.S. District Court in New York.
