Here's an update on the Celtics pursuit of a power forward/center. Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld throws Josh Powell's name into the mix:
The Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns are among the teams expressing interest in unrestricted free agent Josh Powell, according to sources close to the situation. The 29-year-old signed in China during the lockout, but now he’s back in the United States and weighing his options.
Powell has played for the Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers and Atlanta Hawks. He won two championships during his time with the Lakers. Over the course of his six-year career, Powell has averaged 3.9 points and 2.9 rebounds.
ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports the Celtics and Heat lead a pack of teams interested in Ronny Turiaf.
Did any of you hear Mike Gorman praising Dan Gadzuric during last night's broadcast? The 6-11 center is currently in the D-league.
Leon Powe is leading our big man poll, but I haven't heard of any reports linking Powe to Boston (or any other team).
As for J.J. Hickson, there's a report the Warriors are the favorites. Hickson is reportedly looking to sign with a team where he can play significant minutes. He won't find major minutes in Boston.
