Robert Parish isn't lobbying to leave the Boston Celtics, but if he is to be traded, Seattle and a reunion with K.C. Jones sounds nice.

"If I had my druthers, I'd stay here," Parish said Friday during a break in his basketball camp at New Hampshire College. "But if they're going to move me, they can definitely move me in that direction."Parish first heard of a possible trade to Seattle from the Boston Globe's Peter May on NBA draft day and last week Jones confirmed by phone that the Sonics and Celtics had been talking.

"He said they had been trying to get me, but couldn't come to an agreement," Parish said. "But that they hadn't given up yet."

Parish said he knew of no timetable on the deal and he's not worrying about it.
