Reported by Boston Sports Media Watch via Twitter:
"Marc J. Spears leaving the NBA beat at the Boston Globe for the NBA beat at Yahoo! Sports"
Bruce Allen, author of BSMW, got the word from the Yahoo! Sports NBA Twitter feed, which he reported on his site earlier tonight.
Yahoo! reported it around 7:00 p.m on its Twitter page.
Spears joined the Globe staff in 2007 and covered the 2007-08 Boston Celtics championship run. He was only a two-year member of the staff.
With Spears moving on for better job security, like old friend and former Boston Red Sox beat writer Gordon Edes, there is now a massive hole to fill on the Celtic beat.
Keeping you posted with this developing story.
