Celtics TV analyst Brian Scalabrine floated a rumor this morning that Klay Thompson may be “available”, and that Boston could be in play for the All-Star shooting guard’s services.
"I heard this weekend that Klay Thompson may be available, I heard that rumor going around involved w/ a team that wears green" @Scalabrine

Once the soundbite went viral, Scalabrine was quick to walk back his commments.
Btw it's not my rumor or my sources. It's just something I read over the week that I thought was interesting.

The Golden State Warriors are reportedly not interested in negotiating any type of deal for Thompson.
On the Klay Thompson-to-Boston front, Warriors are shooting down the notion that there have been any actual talks. Interesting idea though.
