Shaq To Celtics Now Unlikely As Boston Loses Interest

With the Celtics opting to sign Jermaine O'Neal, it would appear that they found their big man for the next couple of years. Which is why it makes sense that, according to FanHouse's Chris Tomasson, Boston's interest in free agent Shaquille O'Neal is no longer considered mutual.

O'Neal also is interested in Boston but the source said he realizes the Celtics don't have much interest in him. A source confirmed to Povtak on Wednesday that, while the Celtics have great respect for Shaq, he would disrupt their chemistry.

The source goes on to say that the Spurs and Hawks are now at the top of Shaq's list, "since there is interest with those teams on both sides."

O'Neal, 38, wants to play two more season.
