C's miss out on Morris on deadline day?

What will Danny  to say this Thursday when he's asked about Morris? I think will get some honesty,and some shielding of the truth. But on the basketball side of things. It would have been great to get Morris.

Morris is a 6-foot-9 forward who could have helped right away for Boston's depleted frontcourt depth. He's averaged 7.1 points and 3.3 rebounds over 17.9 minutes per game in his young career so far.

Q: When did you first learn that your team was pursuing your brother?

Markieff Morris: "I was on the bus riding to … the Golden State game and Jared Dudley was like, ‘They’re talking about trading your brother.’ So I was just calling him to see how he felt about it. And he said it was between [Phoenix] and Boston."

Size-craving Boston has clearly not been fond of what's available on the free-agent market and might have missed out on a chance to add a recent lottery pick at a low cost. Instead, Boston has turned its attention to free-agent bodies, including D.J. White, who is expected to (finally) ink a 10-day contract later this week once his clearance issues are resolved after playing in China at the start of the season.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said in Phoenix that Boston desires to add another big body with an available roster spot.
