Shaq and Kwame Brown Still of Interest to Celtics

New, comments

The Celtics took another step in their offseason retooling yesterday by signing free agent guard Von Wafer. However, a need for another big man still exists, and Kwame Brown and Shaquille O'Neal are still possibilities, according to ESPN's Marc Stein:

Shaquille O'Neal and Kwame Brown. Those two haven't shown up in the same sentence too often over the years, but they're linked on this occasion because they both remain on the radar of the Boston Celtics.

The East champs, even after the recent signing of Jermaine O'Neal, still want one more big man after inching to the brink of a full roster with Thursday's signing of guard Von Wafer.

The problem? The Celtics only have minimum money left. Sources say they're having trouble getting Brown to accept those wages, so you can imagine where Shaq stands on the idea.
