Flannery: 5 Restricted Free Agents To Consider

Paul Flannery takes a look at 5 guys that will become restricted free agents at the end of the year (because they didn't get extensions yesterday like Kevin Love and others did). See the link for the full list, but one of them is going to be playing against us tonight, so you'll have a chance to scout him (don't just judge him based on the last game he played against us).

Green Street " Five restricted free agents for Celtics to consider

Ryan Anderson: The 6-foot-10 sharpshooter had a miserable game against the Celtics on Monday missing all eight shots, but he’s very quietly having a breakthrough season as a starter, averaging almost 17 points and seven rebounds per game. He’s shooting 42 percent from 3-point range and is a better rebounder than people realize. For the right price he’d be terrific pick and pop partner for Rajon Rondo. It’s also worth noting that the Magic’s roster is a mess with long-term commitments to role players like Glen Davis and Jason Richardson.

To me he seems like a nice finishing piece but not necessarily someone I'd want to throw big money at when we don't already have the other pieces in place. But he's worth considering.
