Celtics tried to get Powe back

This came in via the Cleveland Plain Dealer's beat writer Brian Windhorst on twitter (via CelticsBlog Twitter)

Leon Powe signing
should be official in morning. 2 years, $1.77 mil. Sources say Celtics
tried to re-sign him after word got out about Cavs.

UPDATE: Marc Spears just reported this on Comcast Sports Tonight:

from Cleveland told me tonight the reason why Cleveland was rushing
with Leon is because the Celtics were starting to show interest."

Interesting.  Maybe the C's didn't think he'd take the minimum.  If true, maybe they think they misplayed their hand here.

  • Leon just wanted a contract he had 8 mouths to feed!!!! I haven’t been this mad since the Bartender cut me after only 19 beers on monday or when The Celtics Celtics trade Andrew Declercq and a first-round draft pick (Shawn Marion) for Vitaly Potapenko

    Crap! Atleast it wasn’t the Flakers.

    Ainge trying to play that Billy Bean ball (A’s) outside from the big 3. This one hurts. But like said before, joke is on the Cavs. Dude has 45 year old knees now. Let Powe go and this topic.

    Who cares? Sorry but Powe was a good contributor off the bench, sometimes, but I would take Rasheed Wallace any day… I don’t see the big deal. I don’t see Powe being the reason we lose to the Cavs anytime next season.

    I’m waiting for the signing ceremony before changing my picture…

    As much as I liked Leon, and that was a lot. He was sporadic off the bench. One game amazing, the next AWOL.
    Sometimes it’s better to move on…….especially with better players…..ya listening Rasheed!
