According to the Boston Globe:
The Celtics are going to announce the acquisition of veteran point guard Keyon Dooling from the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday, the first day of training camp and trades can become official, according to a league source.

The deal is expected to include a second-round draft pick headed to Milwaukee and it gives the Celtics a veteran backup point guard behind Rajon Rondo, who remains a Celtic after Chris Paul was dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Dooling, who will earn $2.1 million this season, averaged 7.1 points and 3 assists in 80 games with the Bucks last season. He was the 10th overall pick in the 2001 NBA Draft out of Missouri and played four years with the Clippers, 1 with Miami, 3 with the Magic, 2 with the Nets before signing with Milwaukee in 2010.

Dooling has been in the spotlight this summer because he was on the NBA Players Association executive committee. Dooling got into an infamous fight with current Celtic Ray Allen during a Jan 2006 game between Allen's Seattle SuperSonics and Dooling's Magic.

The two wrestled into the stands at KeyArena in Seattle and both were ejected. Each received suspensions for the altercation.

  1. Bring back Troy Murphy!

  2. Big disappointment for 2.1 million. I'd much rather have Delonte. This probably means that Delonte is on the way out.
