According to a one or two different Lakers' blogs:
Sources from the league --Erick Pincus-- report that the Boston Celtics have agreed to a one-year deal with Shelden Williams for the veteran's minimum, sources tell Y! Sports. The Lakers weren't willing to give Shelden a guaranteed deal - Kupchak won't justify 14 guaranteed - opened the door for Bos.
Interesting. The Lakers were said to be pursuing Shelden as a contingency plan if Lamar left. Curious that the purple still wanted him even though Odom stayed. I'd also be curious to know what K.McHale had to say about "Give it to me, Shelden," since he played 15 games for Lurch last spring. At worst, Williams seems like he'd be a great practice player. You can always use one of those.
