WEEI's Jessica Camerato brought up an interesting name in last night's call in show when we asked her about potential free agent signings: Jamario Moon.
Here's why it makes sense: He's cheap (he made $700k last year), he fills a need (at 6' 8" he can back up Paul Pierce) and he's versatile (could play the 2 or 3 if the C's wanted to go big).
No, he's not going to set the world on fire, but he can play well in stretches. And on the right team with the focus on other people, he can probably improve on his 7.8 ppg/5.4 rpg averages over his 2 year NBA career.
Bottom line, the Celtics could double his salary comfortably and still have a huge chunk of their mid-level to play with.
I'd like to thank everyone who called in to the show last night. We had a great time talking to all of you and we think it was a great show. Thanks especially to Jess Camerato who was awesome. We know the stream cut off right at the 1-hour mark, but we still kept recording and the rest of it is available on our show page. You can download the whole show, or just play the end right on the page. Next time, we'll give you a little warning that the live stream will end. It seemed a bit abrupt.
Our next show is coming up in 2 weeks, Wednesday July 8th. Jeff Clark of CelticsBlog.com will be joining us at 9pm. I'm looking forward to it.
