Celtics resign Chris Wilcox for the vet min, they are looking like a scary squad going into next year. Per espnboston.com

Thoughts?

It is a good move he gelled with Rondo last year. And the Celtics are looking good for next year. I figured why not make the thread there is not many threads lately in the NBA forum about the Celtics, so i figured I'd get a league wide fan's opinion. And they are planning on s&t for terry instead of outright signing him, which leaves us our MLE exception still. With that there are serious talks of the Celtics acquiring either mayo or lee. This is a good looking team,

Rondo, Terry,
Bradley, Mayo or Lee
Pierce, Green
Bass, Sullinger
Garnett, Wilcox

Riding the Pine;
Moore
Pietrus
Joesph
Johnson
Melo

According to a Celtics fan......:rolleyes:

Heat and Nets are definitely ahead of Boston and possibly the Knicks and Bulls if Rose gets healthy and back to form. Chris Wilcox is a scrub and has been for most of his career.

Atleast it's a thread about an actual move, and not about where will Howard go, where will Iggy go, there's like a million of those bogus threads. This will probably lead to a discussion about the Celtics, which is what I intended. (or closed idc)

The Nets and Knicks are not ahead of the Celtics. Especially the Nets.

Yeah Lee would be a great pickup, and what other team has a bench as good as terry, lee or mayo if signed, green, sully, and wilcox or steams if signed.

Well said sir. A little too many speculation threads out there for my taste.

Good move for the Celtics, gives them depth and a player who seemed to mesh well with Rondo last year.

I wouldnt even say they were with dwight howard if he goes, deron williams is on a shot .407 last season and .336 from 3. I know he will be getting better shots this year due to defenses having to pay more attention to JJ and d12 but, even then JJ is a spot up iso player for the most part and is rather weak going to the rim and as of right now dwight is not on the nets.

Lets not forget the fact that Deron has had major health issues, only playing in 49% of his teams games the past 3 seasons and his body is starting to show it.

Plus the nets bench is terrible


Heat>celtics.... bottom line heat are in the championship regardless who comes into their path.

It's like the Lakers bring back Devin Ebanks. NOt really groundbreaking news, doesn't really make the team all that better or worse. :shrug:

its not big news but he is big and athletic and provides depth at the 4 and 5, something boston needs.

Are you people legit ********? The celtics were 8 min away from advancing to the finals, and beating the eventual champs. Now they add terry, wilcox, green, sully, melo, bradley, and probably lee or mayo. How in hell are the Nets better, and they will make a deep playoff run trust me. Just look what they did this year with all the injuries they had. They only had like one big coming off the bench, steams, i just consider hollins a waste of space.

and theres a thread on Kwame brown, wilcox is better than kwame brown. You people obviously don't watch the celtics if you don't think he is a decent player.

The man is coming back from heart surgery. If it's not the impact he will have on the team it's the fact that he is back and healthy that deserves a thread. Props to Wilcox for coming back from that.

True that, and while were on the subject kudos for Jeff Green for the same feat. Two guy on the same team coming back from heart surgery, both on the celtics again, that's crazy. But it was expected.

The team is exploring a s/t for Terry so the MLE would still be available. Mayo will be offered much more, but Lee is a realistic target and has shown interest.
