Our old friend has joined forces with our old enemy. I guess at this point it doesn't really matter since Kendrick Perkins hasn't been a Celtic for a long time and the Celtics haven't played a playoff game against LeBron James in a long time. Still, it seems odd that the two would team up in Cleveland.
Perkins strongly considered the Los Angeles Clippers, too. For the Cavaliers, Perkins will be a backup center to Timofy Mozgov. Perkins’ talents have diminished in the past few years, but his toughness and leadership still makes him a valued presence in contending locker rooms. Perkins has played 13 NBA seasons, including eight with the Boston Celtics and five with the Thunder.
In semi-related non-news, there's still no word on if Ray Allen will sign with anyone this year or choose to retire from basketball.
