How about TJ Ford?

He retired in 2012 due to constant back issues, but he's only 29.

Only a few months after he retired, he was already tweeting about a possible comeback.

He's had a year to rest his back.  He's probably in shape, despite the constant injuries, he's never seemed like the kind of guy to have conditioning issues.  Relatively young NBA veteran.  If healthy, better than any other available free agent guard.

Because if there's one thing the Celtics need, it's another guy with career threatening injuries that could miss the entire season at the drop of a hat. ;)

Or is this thread big guys only? Just throwing it out there though, I would at least call the guy, see where he's at and gauge any interest.  Need to look in creative places at times like these.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Think Chris Johnson completed a deal to finish the season with the Wolves

Kenyon Martin and DJ White top the list.

Henry Sims was mentioned before. I have never seen him play but he sounds interesting.

Obviously, Danny and Doc would have to make sure guys are in shape and ready to play in our system.

Keeping that in mind, I would rather see the Celtics play a few of their own D-leaguers: Fab Melo, Chris Wright, DeJuan Summers.  You got one 7-ft center and two 6'9" PFs right there.  All rebound and all can score.

But, if Danny is looking outside the organization for a bit of experience and ready-talent, I would look hard at Fesenko and Martin.

Fesenko could be another big off the bench to supplant Collins if he happens to rack up fouls or be ineffective against certain teams.  He's a huge guy who is good on the glass, and I believe he could learn enough next to KG to be useful in spots. 

Martin could spell Bass and has a knack for scoring and playing some tough, though not consistent, defense.  I was never in favor of bringing in Martin when we had Sully and Bass, but now that Sully is out I think Martin could slide in for 10-15mpg.  And, if he's not happy about that after three weeks, cut him.

I was intrigued by Henry Sims out of college, but it seems he just doesn't have what it takes.  When you're only 23 years-old and you're taller than 7-ft, you should have a job in the NBA.  I know that's painting with a wide brush, but I watched him play at Georgetown and he has talent.  Also, we already have Fab Melo, so there would be no point in signing him.

I tell you one thing: Shelden Williams would be the last guy I picked.  I would pick up PSY before Shelden "Let's throw the pass right to the Lakers" Williams.

Think Chris Johnson completed a deal to finish the season with the Wolves

He's on his second ten-day contract.  The T-Wolves have two players on their second ten-day contracts and a temporary 16th roster spot due to injury hardship.  There are rumors they are trying to deal Lou Amundson so they can keep both CJ and Mickael Gelabale when their ability to carry 16 players expires.  If Amundson and his minimum contract can be had for a second-round pick, that would be better than many of the listed options.

I lean towards Sims because he is the most likely to be a useful player next season who might become a potential trade asset for the future.

Nobody jumped on my Hassan Whiteside bandwagon.  Perhaps I should have made a more detailed argument.  Go take a look at his rebounding numbers per 48 minutes and his blocked shots.

I'd also get a look at Chris Wright.  When I've watched the Maine games he hasn't played particularly hard... or well but his rebound numbers are pretty good and he is hitting free throws now.  He isn't a power forward as has been mentioned on this board.  He is more of a 3 at 6 8" and not beefy.  He does get a lot of rebounds for a 3 but man those D-Leaguers miss a lot of shots.

Jajuan Johnson can't be signed by the Celtics this season, since they traded him in July.  Not that I would sign him anyway.

Martin and Fysenko and it's not even a question of the other scrubs! None of them are gonna take mins from the "scrubs" we already have except maybe Martin.

Tony Battie was a celtic. Not that it matters though.

As for me, Fysenko would be the best bet since K-mart is out of shape. Maybe Danny can bring another diamond in a rough from the D-league.
