“We are just going to keep looking,’’ Ainge said. “There are a lot of
players out there this year, and so many with expiring contracts coming
out. Already a couple have been bought out – such as [Marko] Jaric and
Alston – and that trend could continue.’’
Ever since the C's shocked us by waiving Lester Hudson, we've all been wondering what the Celtics are going to do with their open roster spot. Seems that right now Danny is content to sit back and see who gets bought out and where the C's are need wise…. which means he didn't have a particular plan in place when Hudson was cut.
So where's the Celtics most pressing need? Are we back to having that "we need a back up point" discussion… or are the Celtics going to try to bring in another big man as more KG insurance?
My guess is that most of us are in favor of another ball handler off the bench. But the eventual return of Marquis Daniels and the re-emergence of Tony Allen might be enough to keep the C's comfortable there.
I'm afraid if the C's go big, we'll all read into it that KG's not as healthy as they're letting on and they feel the need to cover themselves.
Danny's clearly keeping his options open and he's eying the bargain bin. The only question is… what will he pull out?
