Celtics newcomers Tayshaun Prince and Shalik Randolph will join their new team in Los Angeles before playing against the Clippers on Monday.

According to Ken Berger of, Prince could be leaving the Celtics via a buyout to join the Clippers, one of a few teams interested in acquiring Prince.

Or he could stay with the Celtics, this all be decided this week when Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge sits down with Prince in Los Angeles.

Prince, who's in his 13th season, will probably not stick around. Ainge will squeeze out a future second round pick or a first rounder (who knows) from a playoff team to add to his stockpile by the end of the week in exchange for Prince. 

Randolph on the other hand is expected to stay with the Celtics. The 31 year-old power forward will start his second go around with the Celtics in this week's six-game road trip. Randolph played 16 games for the Celtics during the 2012-13 season.

Shooting guard Chris Douglas-Roberts, who was part of the same three-team swap that brought Randolph back to Boston, is expected to be waived by the Celtics. There hasn't been any word about him joining the team.
