But as the Boston Celtics continue to search for some length to complement Leon Powe and Glen Davis off the bench, there was nothing encouraging on the Dikembe Mutombo front. The free agent said he’d be making a decision on a team soon, but the Celts may be holding off for someone with a more balanced game as they mainly see Mutombo as a contributor on the defensive end.

“No, I don’t think we’re going to get him,” said Rivers. “We talked to David (Falk, Mutombo’s agent) and I would say it’s a no

We would love him, but we’re going to wait it out.”

The Celts haven’t given up on P.J. Brown coming back, but at this point Danny Ainge believes Brown’s not coming out of retirement. Then again, Ainge thought the same thing at this time last year.

Alonzo Mourning’s name is still being floated, but an even more intriguing property could be available soon. There is talk Oklahoma City may buy out Joe Smith’s contract, and that the club is at least serious about trading him.

The Celtics can’t and won’t discuss him publicly, but at a lanky 6-foot-10, Smith would seem to fit the club’s need.

Said one NBA scout, “Are you kidding me? Joe Smith would be perfect for the Celtics.”

I think Mourning would be a better fit than Joe SMith, ya'll need more Defense off of the bench rather than offense

???

Powe, House, Allen and Big Baby play average defense imo. We dont have much scoring. Allen is the best go to guy and he hasnt been as good as id hoped. Smith would be a guy who isnt a horrid defender but hes a big body and can step out 15-17 ft and knock down jumpers. Hell he did against us the whole series last year


Mutumbo
Smith
Mourning
P.J Brown
id be happy with any of them

I'm feeling pretty good about the Nuggets' chances of getting Joe Smith back in Denver. I'd probably rather get Mutombo, but I think he'll go back to Houston.
