Celtics pursuing J.J. Hickson

Celtics having conversations with Kings about JJ Hickson, source says.

Hickson is a name we haven't heard before connected with the Celtics. He's best known as the guy the Cavs refused to part with for Amar'e Stoudemire, which then led to LeBron James leaving Cleveland because the Cavs couldn't get another star to pair with him.

Hickson is very athletic, but has been described as clueless on the defensive end. Reports are the Kings want to get rid of him, so I guess how badly the Kings want to move him will determine how likely the Celtics are to acquire him.
