Report: Jermaine O'Neal Now 'Leaning Toward' Signing With Boston Celtics

Earlier we noted an ESPN report that said free agent center Jermaine O’Neal had cut his list of teams to three: Boston, Dallas and Denver.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is now reporting that Boston is the favorite to acquire O’Neal’s services.

Free-agent center Jermaine O’Neal is leaning toward signing a contract with the Boston Celtics, but still hasn’t reached a final decision, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

O’Neal, 31, has narrowed his choices to the Celtics and Denver Nuggets, sources said. The Dallas Mavericks have been a strong consideration, too.

Wojnarowski also reports that Boston’s offer is for the mid-level exception (roughly $5.8 million) for each of the next two seasons.
