08:09 AM ET 01.18 | While the Celtics are reportedly monitoring big man Greg Oden, a more immediate headline-making matter rippled through Boston on Thursday. Leandro Barbosa and Danny Ainge both denied a report from ESPN Brazil that the guard has requested a trade from the Celtics. In a translation of the story, Barbosa is quoted as saying, "I will not lie to you. I tried to get out several times, but Danny Ainge does not want to let me go." Shown both the translation and the actual story yesterday, Barbosa said the remarks are not his. "It never came out of my mouth like that," he said. Asked bluntly if he is trying to get the Celtics to trade him, Barbosa said, "No, I want to play. I want to be here. That's it." ... Ainge flatly denied Barbosa has asked to be dealt.
