Trade Rumor: Jermaine O’Neal wants buyout, C’s looking for deal
|03.15.12 at 1:08 pm ET|
Jermaine O’Neal has been away from the team since the All-Star break and don’t look for him back any time soon. The Celtics have been trying to trade his 6.2 million contract, but have found no takers. O’Neal would like a buyout, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, but the Celtics are still trying to deal him before the 3 p.m. deadline.
It would make sense if the Celtics waived him to clear him a roster space in order to try and save a big man, but Woj adds that the team doesn’t want to let him return to Miami.
