Celtics not counting on Brown
Posted: Saturday July 05, 2008 08:40AM ET

The last time Danny Ainge talked with P.J. Brown, the veteran power forward said he wasn't coming back. So the Celtics are now treating Brown"s career as a dormant, not dead, issue. "Whatever P.J. wants," Ainge said. "He knows that we'd love to have him back, but he has to want to come back. "But I'm not counting on it," Ainge added. "He's 39 years old, and he has a nice family. He was a great contributor in our winning, but he said he doesn't want to play."

Makes sense. The guy is old, and he wants to leave on a high note. What are the chances that next season would be as successful for him as this one? Not very. Looks better for him if he leaves with success instead of being forced out of here after a bad season or injury.
