Keyon Dooling wants to pursue other interests

Chuck - Red's Army September 20, 2012 Celtics News, Keyon Dooling 16 Comments

The Celtics just announced they have waived Keyon Dooling, but this sounds like it was Keyon’s decision:

“Keyon has decided that he has given the NBA 12 good years and that it’s time to pursue other interests and spend more time with his family,” said Dooling’s representative Kenge Stevenson. “He will never forget his time in Boston with the Celtics.”

“We’ll miss Keyon’s spirit and energy, both on and off the court,” said Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge. “The whole Celtics family wishes him well as he enters the next phase of his life.”

I’m a bit surprised. I thought Reverend Dooling was going to be back for another season. The younger guys could have benefited from his tutelage.

      Slightly shocked by this. I know you love Quisy but maybe this makes room for Christmas or Smith.

      How about Jannero Pargo?

  • Chulinho

    So, doesn’t this mean the C’s probably need another backup PG?

    Spirit/clubhouse guy? Kevin Millar would look good in a Celtics tanktop.

  • Danno

    Making room for Kmart?

    Quis wouldn’t see a minute on the floor on this team. I’d say that Danny has always intended to sign Joseph and the best summer league candidate. Dooling and Ainge had likely discussed what would happen if Boston signed another big.

    Derek Fisher?

    We have not lost Christmas just yet.

      lol Fisher.
      That’s a crazy notion.
      Makes sense in a perverted way.

    nobody else is coming, darko was keyon’s replacement

    15 man roster will be

    rondo, lee, pierce, bass, kg, bradley, terry, green, sully, wilcox, collins, darko, melo, joseph, & christmas

    rondo, bradley, terry will handle point duties. remember danny has shown during the big three era that he values the back up pg about as much as a nickel he dropped in the toilet

    Strange time to be making this announcement. So what else is happening behind closed doors that the Organization doesn’t want us to know right now. Oh well it will eventually come out like everything else did.

  • adam

    so does his salary go against the cap? or is it withdrawn? I know it was only a 1 year deal.. or was it the last year of a 2 year deal?

    His preaching on 98.5 for the bruins game 7 was epic.
