JUDGE RULES SHAW MUST PLAY FOR CELTICS

Brian Shaw must honor his five-year contract with the Boston Celtics rather than his deal with Il Messaggero of Italy, a federal judge ruled.

Shaw played with Il Messaggero last season after signing a two-year contract last August. That contract allowed him to notify the team between June 20 and July 20 that he was rescinding it. On Jan. 26, Shaw signed a five-year, $6.2 million contract with the Celtics.
