Celts tried to get a 5th team involved, but didn't work.

I think one thing that concerned them is that they need a wing defender, especially with Daniels injured.

To me, I think it might be just how Kobe kinda had his way with the Celts this season. I think he averaged like 32 ppg on a fg% of 53-54%, he really got anything he wanted against Boston, and I think the Celts are worried that they might need that extra guy while Daniels is down, just to solidify the perimeter against Miami.

Umm, I'm pretty sure we need a perimeter defender more than Boston does :).

I'm glad they didn't do that.

5 teams for just one player. doesnt make much sense. cant see danotini wanting nate back. but it is true the celtics need a wing defender. pierce can more than do it but when he has to defend he tires quickly. ray allen is too small for a guy like lebron or melo

Translation ~ They miss Tony Allen

I agree... I knew financially it would be tough for them to keep him, but he is a terrific defender.

Basically, they have no backup for Pierce, and Avery Bradley is a really good young prospect.

Basically at the backup guard spot, we got Delonte back, plus Von Wafer is playing well, plus Bradley is a good prospect. But behind Pierce right now, we got... no one.

Avery Bradley is one of those guys down the road that should be decent.
