Coach Brian Scalabrine?

Brian Scalabrine has made no secret of his hopes for the 2010-11 season: he wants to play for the Celtics. "I want to keep grinding out. I want to win another championship. I really want to see what Shaq's like."

Unfortunately for Scal, the Celtics roster is pretty much full-up. But that's doesn't mean Boston isn't interested in keeping him around.

"He's as unselfish of a player as I've ever coached. I want him around, I can tell you that," Rivers said. "In a playing role, if not, in another role. I just think there's certain people that you hold onto and he's one of them. So we're going to try to figure that out."

Though if Scalabrine isn't ready to trade in the shorts and jersey for a suit and clipboard, then he may be packing his bags for some time in Europe, where he has received some "good offers" to play professionally. But he fully admits that he'd prefer to stay in the States and play, preferably with Boston.

"Based on this year, I knew I would have to be patient. If I had to go to Europe and play I will go do Europe and play. My kids are going to go to great schools in Europe and they are going to learn the culture over there and take it as a learning experience and 10 years from now, I am going to call back and say, 'remember when we lived in Barcelona for three years?'"
