The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the Hawks have Josh Boone --along with Francisco Elson and Brian Skinner-- "on their radar" now that Shaquille O'Neal has signed with the Celtics. The Journal-Constitution indicates that Boone would have to accept the veteran's minimum.
With free agency now seven weeks old, only two of the Nets' free agents --Keyon Dooling and Tony Battie-- have signed now contracts, with the Bucks and 76ers, respectively. That leaves Boone, Jarvis Hayes, Trenton Hassell, Chris Quinn and Bobby Simmons still unsigned.
