Shaquille O’Neal thinks his Lakers would’ve easily stopped the Golden State Warriors. O’Neal, who won three NBA championships alongside Kobe Bryant with the Lakers in 2000, 2001 and 2002, said the Warriors would’ve had a big problem against him. “Who is gonna guard me on that team?’ O’Neal asked on the Frank Caliendo Podcast. Draymond Green’s name was brought up. O’Neal immediately dismissed him as a threat. “He gonna be in foul trouble the first two minutes, let’s put it that way,” O’Neal said.

The Celtics still have other assets at their disposal, as their $17.1 million trade exception that expires July 18 was not used in the Brogdon deal. But a league source said the team is now unlikely to use that to acquire another substantial piece. The source said the Celtics had actively pursued trades involving the exception over the past two weeks, but ultimately the deal involving Brogdon, whose salary was too large to fit into the exception, turned out to be the best option.
Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Al Horford, Smart, Robert Williams, Derrick White, Grant Williams and Payton Pritchard are all under contract for next season, and the additions of Brogdon and Gallinari will push that core group to 10. The Celtics last week declined their $1.6 million option on second-year forward Sam Hauser, and league sources said the team will likely sign the sharpshooter to a longer-term deal soon.
