Michael Finley is excited to be a Boston Celtic, and part of it is that he thinks the Celtics have a need for his abilities. Boston, his agent said, was the team most interested in Finley’s services. (Boston Herald)
“They had a situation where Michael feels he can really earn a role. They told me they liked his ability to shoot and defend – the same role as he’s had in San Antonio for all these years.
“He’s a seasoned vet, and he brings all of these things to a very good team.”
Finley’s agent, Henry Thomas, elaborated on just why Finley signed with Boston. (Boston Globe)
“The opportunity to earn minutes in the rotation. And the chance to seek a ring and the chance to play for Doc [Rivers] and with [Kevin Garnett] and some of the other guys. All of those things made Boston attractive,’’ Thomas said.
Finley seems really hyped to be in Boston.
