Update: Hey, why not add Marcus Camby to the list of guys the Celtics have reached out to. Insert old jokes here.
Some early free agency buzz, starting with outside free agents...

FA Mickael Pietrus said he wants to come back to #Celtics. Has not heard from them but agent Bill McCandless said, "This is a long process."— Sean Deveney (@SeanDeveney) July 1, 2012
Perhaps most intriguing? Celtics free agent Nenad Krstic isn't expected to be back with his Russian team, and could join an NBA squad. We've got his Bird rights, so there's a solid chance he could be back.
