Don't know who this guy is, but here's where the rumor is coming from.

Hopefully Doc and Danny gave him the full court press to sell him in signing with us.

I'm not to concerned on this respect, I don't think he plans on playing this year anyways.

Honestly, I see absolutely no harm in giving him a minimum contract for the rest of the season. If he pans out, then we could make a little playoff run. If he doesn't, no big deal, and we move on with our lives. It's not like he could ruin us. What's there to ruin?

Exactly, this would be a move for the future, and totally worth the risk imo. Imagine, ending the KG era while getting the guy we missed out on which lead to us trading for KG. After losing Rondo and Sullinger, we should totally focus on next season and beyond, but without tossing guys away for basically money savings. This would be one way of doing it.

hmmm Rondo, Sully and Oden all coming back from major injuries next year. They would either be really good or a lotto team ( if PP and KG are gone)...

He won't play this year. He's looking to sign on with a team to get ready for next year. He has interest from a number of teams including the heat and the cavs, so it will take more than the minimum I guess. Totally worth the risk though imo.

Well, if he came to the Celtics he'd have as good a chance as anybody at earning that starting center spot next season and beyond, if he indeed can actually stay healthy for any significant stretch of time.

Not to many teams have that large a hole at starting center.


Really, though, Oden should be looking to play in Phoenix, for obvious reasons.
