Danny also gives an update on Leon Powe, talks about Eddie House and Big Baby's situations, and much more. Highlights and full audio is below.
On free agents-
"There's the July 1st type free agents that we'll make a run at. There's August 1, August 15th free agents that we're waiting to see how, maybe they slip through the cracks...maybe they don't get what they're actually looking for and rather come to Boston and play for a lower number. There's a whole long list of free agents we like and we have in mind, but they're different levels and I certainly can't share with you those names."
On hearing from Eddie House's agents-
"I have not, I don't know if they'll contact me today or just wait until the deadline tomorrow. I've talked with them but I don't have any answers. I don't know what the decision will be. I have my opinions on what he might do, but we're prepared for whatever he decides.
