No go on Seikaly

No go on Seikaly

June 20, 1998

The Nets have been making inquiries to teams, trying to determine if there is interest in Rony Seikaly. John Calipari should not call Boston. The Celtics had a chance to acquire the 7-footer before last season's trading deadline and declined . . . Pitino dismissed a rumor that the Celtics are prepared to reassign or fire several employees after July 1. "The Boston Celtics are status quo," he said . . . One name that should not be disregarded in the draft is that of Kentucky center Nazr Mohammed. The 6-10 Mohammed knows how to play PitinoBall and is very close to Walker. If he were there at No. 10, it would be difficult for the Celtics to pass on him. But word is that 76ers coach Larry Brown - who tormented the Celtics last season by taking Keith Van Horn and then trading him to the Nets - is enamored of Mohammed and is considering taking him with the eighth pick . . . Dana Barros and Travis Knight are participating in the Beantown Basketball League at Boston College. The first time their teams go head to head is June 30 at 6:40 p.m. The games, held at Conte Forum's Powers Gym, are open to the public. Admission is free . . . The Celtics' pre-draft media briefing Monday will be broadcast live via the Internet. Visitors can access the Celtics' website (www.bostonceltics.com) at 12:30 p.m.
