Oden interested in the Celtics

It's been widely known around NBA circles that the former #1 pick has been looking for the right situation to make a comeback. Popular thinking has him linked to the two teams that were in the NBA Finals where he'd have little pressure to contribute right away. Charlotte's also on that list but with the addition of Cody Zeller and Al Jefferson to Bismack Biyombo, an already full front court would get even more crowded. Ainge has been touching base with Oden's camp since he re-surfaced earlier this month with interest of returning to the NBA, but that contact has been mostly speculative, but there's definitely a case to bring him to Boston. With a young coach and a young team, Oden could grow with his teammates rather than take the back seat to a roster chock full of veterans. I wouldn't be surprised if Oden gives the Celtics a really hard look before he makes his decision.
