According to YahooSports NBA twitter page (@YahooSportsNBA), "Doc Rivers sounds determined to keep Mike Sweetney. Celts plan had been to help him lose more weight and hope he could contribute by midyear." I have no problem with this at all. Sweetney has done nothing but impress me with his ability in the post. On top of that, when he talks, all he says is how great the Celtics are- so he wants to be here.

How could we keep him, though - we already have 16 players on a 15 player max roster? We would have to drop out a guaranteed contract. The two players highest on this list would be TA and Giddens. Give or take either of those players, I think Sweetney can provide more for the team than either of them. I have wanted both of those players to succeed, but they haven't shown it.
