Now that Michael Finley is a Celtic, the team has a simple question. How does the 36-year-old swingman fit in?
Doc Rivers dealt with the question during this morning’s shootaround at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia.
“We don’t know yet,’’ said the Celtics coach. “But he was available, he’s a guy of high character, and he can shoot. “But to be honest we don’t know yet if he fits in or not. But adding a veteran can’t hurt.’
“I think he has basketball left in him,’’ said Rivers. “Mike can
still play, but we don’t know if he will be in the rotation or not. But
having a guy of high character in your locker room can never hurt.’’
Finley must be thrilled to know that Doc Rivers has no clue how to fit him into the rotation or whether he even belongs on the rotation.
