The Celtics are still in the free agent market, looking for one more piece of the puzzle.
The Celtics are in the market for a free agent, and likely will cut the roster to 14 players to keep a spot open, coach Doc Rivers said last night. "First come first served,’’ Rivers said of the team’s search. "We’re looking around. I still think there’ll be buyouts probably starting [today]. So many things can happen, we want to make sure we can do it quick.’’ Rivers did not announce cuts after last night’s 81-73 win over the Raptors at TD Garden and likely will have a 15-man roster at least until tomorrow, he said.
Should be interesting to see who pops up on the Celtics radar and who finally lands here. Losing Jeff Green obviously hurt our depth and it would be nice to add someone that can contribute to the 10 or 11 man rotation.
This doesn't bode well for Gilbert Brown. He and Greg Stiemsma would be the likely candidates to keep the 14th spot, and Gilbert hasn't stood out as much as Greg so far. The Steamroller is also seven feet tall, which always helps.
