Trade Rumor: Jermaine O’Neal wants buyout, C’s looking for deal

Jermaine O’Neal [1] has been away from the team since the All-Star break and don’t look for him back any time soon. The Celtics [2] 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 [3], 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.
