If you were hoping that the Celtics were going to use the space created by cutting Donte Greene to bring in an NBA veteran at a minimum deal, you might be disappointed with this news.

Then again, if you expected the team to play it safe, and look for diamonds in the rough (sorry, I've been watching a lot of Disney movies lately), then this makes perfect sense. They might sign one of these guys to a minimum deal out of camp, but they also stay under the luxury tax and keep a spot open in case any trades pop up in the coming weeks before the season.
I still think we have an unbalanced roster that doesn't really make a whole lot of sense at the moment, but they aren't competing for Championship this year anyway, so I guess this squad is built to develop young talent and trade assets.
