Report: C’s considering Nocioni in three-way

WALTHAM ¬†— ¬†While the Celtics [1] hit the practice court again today in preparation for the Golden State Warriors [2] on Wednesday, the team is involved in discussions regarding a three-way trade to bring power Sacramento forward Andres Nocioni [3] to Boston, according to ESPN [4].

The Celtics would acquire the third-year 6-7 power forward from the Kings while sending Tony Allen [5] and Brian Scalabrine [6] to Philadelphia and J.R. Giddens to Sacramento.

The deal, on the surface, would seem unlikely as Nocioni, who turns 30 on Nov. 30, is signed through 2011-12 and is owed roughly $20.5 million guaranteed, with a team option for the 2012-13 season.
