Kwame Brown 'Going In Another Direction'

After the Celtics lost Tony Allen to the Grizzlies, a small bit of good news from the weekend: it looks as though free agent center Kwame Brown will not be signing with Boston after all.

His agent told on Sunday that he anticipates having a new deal for his client within the next few days, and it will in all likelihood not be with the Celtics.

"We're probably going in another direction," said his agent, Mark Bartelstein.

Apparently the Celtics could only offer him the veteran's minimum, an amount that can easily be trumped by a handful of teams interested in Brown, according to his agent.

"Kwame has some very interesting options to weigh," Bartelstein said. "Like I said, I think we'll have something done within the next couple of days. You never say never, because things can change quickly. But I just don't think it's going to work out with Boston."
