The Celtics had nothing cooking as today’s veteran free agent signing period opened.
A big man still is atop their wish list, but don’t expect it to be Joe Smith. The club is said to be shopping hard for someone to share time with Kendrick Perkins [stats] in the pivot, but it was not involved in any major talks yesterday.
Said one GM, "It seems pretty quiet out there. There are discussions going on, but I’m not sure how much big stuff is going to happen right away - other than what we already know with Grant Hill (signing with Phoenix) and Rashard Lewis (signing with Orlando) and those guys. I think this could get more interesting in a week or two."
