For those of you who didn’t watch the C’s telecast tonight, Greg Dickerson reported that Michael Finley has cleared waivers.
Before the game, Danny Ainge admitted the C’s interest in Finley. (ESPNBoston)
“I’ll put in a phone call … and I think [he’ll have] some interest in coming here,” said Ainge. “But other teams will be interested in him too.”
Ainge said Finley would be another shooter off the bench who could fill in for Paul Pierce or Ray Allen, and that having that extra option could be useful for coach Doc Rivers.
“I don’t think he’ll make the difference in whether we raise another championship banner,” Ainge said.
We know he won’t be THE difference. But he could be A difference, if he has anything left in that old tank of his.
I wasn’t initially sold on Finley, but I say take a flier on him. It couldn’t hurt, and perhaps could pay dividends if Finley can still play a little. Plus, he’s one hell of a teammate.
