The trouble is that the Celtics only have two open roster spots, which seems weird considering they only really have NINE rotation players at the moment.  I think Barbosa will need to be waived, unless he gets sent out in some minor trade for salary matching purposes.

I haven't calculated it myself though it looks good from the eyeball test, but the Celtics are said to have room for only two minimum contracts under the hard cap (because they used the full MLE on Terry), so to add a third player, they would almost certainly have to send Barbosa in a salary dump to another team (presumably with cash for a heavily protected second-round pick) to clear cap space to add a third player via free agency.

Perfect.

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.

Game notes

The Celtics were 4 for 18 from the floor in the second quarter, making 33 percent of their shots in the first half. They were 4 for 21 in the third. ... The Celtics' eight points in the third quarter were the team's fewest in a period this season, two less than they managed in the fourth quarter of a 106-77 loss at the Los Angeles Clippers on Dec. 27. ... Former Celtic Antoine Walker was in the crowd. ... The Bulls had a season-high 22 turnovers.


Did anybody else see this in the ESPN game notes?  Are you guys thinking what I'm thinking?  8)

Antoine Walker is a good Celtics fan?
Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

the vets were lobbying for kenyon martin a few months ago

why have we not signed him?

Coz he's an overrated, injury prone bum?

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

I want Semih Erden or Krstic back.

They at least already played within the system.

Dionte Christmas killed it in the D-League, I would also give him a shot. He's another guard who can get to the rim.

And I'll lobby for Terrence Williams once again. The dude has very underrated passing skills, solid defender and athletic.

Nenad Krstic?

How great would that be?  Unfortunately, we'd only be able to offer him the minimum and it seems pretty unlikely he'd return to the NBa for that kind of money.

I think Krstic still has one more year on his contract in Europe (Russia?). If Danny can somehow get him back, I would love it.

Not interested in Jonny Flynn.

and just to add another wet blanket to the party, here is a quote from an article about a year ago. doubtful that flynn has changed enough to resolve these issues....oh, and his defense is terrible too.

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1057389-nba-trade-rumors-jonny-flynn-wont-help-a-contender

Hollinger wrote...."The biggest problem is his poor decision-making on the move, which resulted in an astronomical turnover rate for a shoot-first point guard. Flynn's other problem is nearly as serious, however—he's a scoring guard who can't score. Flynn can create shots, but he's neither a good outside shooter nor adept at drawing fouls, and his size is a problem when he goes into the paint to finish. Even if his percentages improve, his shockingly low free-throw rate will have to improve dramatically if he's going to offer much in the way of an offensive boost."

his shooting stats are not good, especially 3 pt%, but his free throw % is at .809.

and for what it is worth, down under he is averaging 15.8 pts/game. he shooting percentages are still mediocre at best. he averages 6.3 assists and 4.3 turn overs a game.

he doesnt seem to have improved.

Perfect.

During the telecast Ainge said we have room for 3 veteran minimum signings.

i think he is playing for the world-beater Guangdong Southern Tigers of China! lots and lots of talent. lots and lots of mental problems. houston brought him in for 10 days, did not work out.

but for that talent? 10 days? why not?


maybe other guards from the D league to consider are...

donald sloan - 22 pts/game, 6.5 rbs, 7.4 assists. and he is 6'3". out of Texax A&M

http://www.nba.com/dleague/playerfile/donald_sloan/

courtney fortson - 18 pts/game, 5.3 rbs, 6.4 assists...but is 5'11". supposedly he is a bundle of hyperactivity with and endless motor. he went to school at arkansas.

http://www.nba.com/dleague/playerfile/courtney_fortson/

yeah....not a whole bunch to choose from at this stage.

I'd roll with Mack and try to sign Krstic.  Erden was mediocre here folks.   There is a reason he isn't in the league and it was not all money.

Mac seems to play well in the D league.  I like Wright, and Joseph too.

I differ in opinion that I thought Erden did a good job fighting for the ball in the paint with one arm.
Did not care for Krstic,  never played defense , scard to play ruff. Too soft.
