A source knowledgeable of negotians between former Cleveland Cavalier Shaquille O'Neal and the Boston Celtics says the Celtics are making progress on a deal that would land Shaq in Boston.

O'Neal says he would rather retire than play internationally and is searching for a contract from a team that can give him good playing time, enough money, and a shot at another NBA championship.

The 38-year-old center won three NBA titles with Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers and one title in Miami with Dwayne Wade. O'Neal has all but ruled out joining LeBron and company in Miami or returning to his former team, the Orlando Magic.
