Tiny Gallon Is 'Getting A Look' From The Boston Celtics

Keith "Tiny" Gallon, the kind of controversial big man out of Oklahoma, is being looked at by the Boston Celtics according to a report from the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn.  Since the Celtics already have 17 players under contract - including Glen Davis, Semih Erden, Luke HarangodyJermaine O'NealShaquille O'Neal and Kendrick Perkins in the front court - he is probably a long shot to make the team's regular season roster.

That said, it probably would make sense for the Celtics - if there's any interest at all in the talented big man - to at least sign him for a day so that the Maine Red Claws would retain his rights under the D-League's new allocation rules because currently his rights remain with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

As of now though, at least according to Danny Ainge, that doesn't seem to be the case.

"We're just taking a look at him," Ainge told the Globe. "I work for the Celtics, so I don't know anything about (sending him to the D-League)."

I find it interesting that Ainge claims no allegiances to the Red Claws despite his son, Austin, coaching the team and the Red Claws being one of the closest NBA-affiliated teams without the actual direct affiliation but I guess that's probably me simply reading too far into the quote.
