Rumor: Celtics After Dahntay Jones

Dahntay

Via Stephen A. Smith's Twitter page:

Celts
won't need to make a deal. They're plan is to grab Donte Jones from the
Nuggets and make sure KG returns 100 percent healthy
Dahntay Jones made headlines in the playoffs for his rough play with Kobe Bryant. At 6-6, he's a tough physical defender who doesn't bring much to the table offensively.

Jones is an unrestricted free agent coming off a $797K contract – which makes him more than affordable.

He'll be a great replacement for Tony Allen.

    This would be a great move. Sorry T.A. but you had plenty of opportunity to shine and really didn’t. Also, the C’s won’t have to stay in their hotel rooms anymore when they go to Chicago.

    Doesn’t bring much to the offensive table? Jones is very athletic and explosive when he wants to be, it’s just not his job shootin jumpers or driving it in since the nuggets are overloaded with scorers already.

    I know what you mean-he has ups and is athletic. He may get the crowd up with a great slam here and there, but that’s it- his career scoring avg is 5.1 PPG. But that’s not his role anyway-if the C’s got him it would be strictly for his lockdown D.

    I would love Dahntay on the team. He’s a great player, blue-collar, and his game is much more smooth than TA’s ever was, offensively or defensively. He’s a ball player, he knows how to play. Loved watching him in the playoffs.
    If this doesn’t cost us much money, I would love pairing this with a signing of someone like Gortat. Those two additions would more than offset the possible loss of Big Baby.

    He actually seems like a perfect fit for the Celtics to tell you the truth.

    dahntay jones was with the 07\08 celtics, in their famous rome training camp, he didnt made the team… he would be nice coming from the bench.
    as for the ray & rondo rumors, i think danny is just giving the media & other gm’s somthing to bite while he is going in a different direction.

    Jones would be a great replacement for TA,and the price should be right. Do it Danny!
