The Celtics must now resume their search for bench help, with one looming possibility said to be Ruben Patterson, a defensively-tough free agent swingman who played for the Bucks last season.
The Celtics are also reportedly considering Dahntay Jones, the Memphis swingman who the Celtics originally drafted with the 20th pick of the 2003 draft as part of their eventual deal for Marcus Banks, and Miami swingman James Posey.
Posey is still negotiating to return to the Heat.
Patterson we've heard about. Posey makes a lot of sense. Jones is a new one on me. I know that at times he's been called a point guard, but he seems like more of a shooting guard or even small forward.
Regardless, without needing to hold a spot for Reggie Miller, the team can sign a small forward and still have room for a point guard if they cut Manuel or Wallace in camp. Did I mention the fact that I want them to sign a point guard? Just checking.
