News: Rudy Fernández and Leandrinho close to Celtics

The Boston Celtics are considering to make a move (and a trade) to get two guards not so happy about their current situation in Phoenix and Portland. Leandro Barbosa and Rudy Fernández (pictured) could be on the verge of wearing the green jersey, although adding size remains a priority for the Celtics (Brad Miller is a target). To acquire the Brazilian guard the team would send centre Rasheed Wallace to the Suns, while in Fernández's case the situation could be more complex, as the Spanish guard recently cited homesickness and has been linked with a move to Real Madrid. But it's not everyday that you drag the attention of a top NBA championship contender.
Last season Barbosa had 9.5 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game for the Suns, while Fernández averaged 8.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal for the Blazers.
