Celts Interested in Michael Finley

New, comments

Marc Spears reports:

Cs considering idea of trying to sign Finley, but offer has not been made. Veteran swingman shooter would be welcomed addition.

I'm all for this move since it seems like a no-lose situation.  However, my expectations are set at "low" because if he wasn't useful for another veteran (read "aging") contender, why will he be valuable for us?  Via ESPN:

Finley was a key member of San Antonio's 2007 championship team after leaving the Spurs' longtime rivals in Dallas but has struggled to earn playing time this season from coach Gregg Popovich.

Andrew Sharp of SBN calls the Celtics the New England Patriots of the NBA.

Here are Finley's stats on the season:
