Boston Herald:
Michael Sweetney has caught Rivers’ eye. The wide, 6-foot-8 free agent who lost his place in the league because of conditioning issues had two points and two boards in five minutes.
“He’s an NBA player,” Rivers said. “There’s no doubt about it. I mean, he has to get in better shape. We’ll see how that goes. He’s working at it.”
Stay-on-the-Celtic-roster skills?
“There’s a place for everybody - whoever earns it,” Rivers said before the C’s second exhibition game. “I mean, we would obviously have to do something to keep him, but that’s up to him to make us want to do that.”

I guess you can never have too many bigs (but you can have too much big, but he's working on it). He's still only 26, and has shown a nice back to the basket game, which is also a positive, because KG, Rasheed, and Baby all like to step out and shoot the jumper).  Often teams will carry a big as their 14th or 15th men. I would have preferred the rehabbing Powe, but I thought it was going to be Danny's love Robert Swift. Maybe they'll keep Sweetney and get rid of one of Giddens, Walker, or Hudson. I actually think Hudson has more security than Giddens, based on position, but we shall see. Nothing wrong with a little competition in camp.

    Tommy predicted that Sweetney would make the roster. I can see Danny likes the comeback stories: Miles, Sweetney...

    Nope I don't think he makes it. They said the same thing about Miles that he was "an NBA player"- could be true but there's no room for him.

    This is turning into an interesting situation. One of the things that made Powe so effective was his ability to get to the basket and the foul line because of his post game. Sweetney provides you with some of that, but with less athleticism.

    With Sheldon Williams on the roster there is no need for Robert Swift if he has not out and out proved he deserves a spot.

    The Coach would hate to see Bill Walker go, hopefully he'll get one more shot at it after the knee is ready.

    Hudson is staying put from where I sit, after a little over a year the Coach still doesn't have a feeling on Giddens.

    This is a nice little storyline in the preseason.
