The Celtics have targeted Brad Miller as their top free agent, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
With the recent retirement of Rasheed Wallace, and the season-ending MCL and PCL tear of starting center Kendrick Perkins, the Celtics will need a forward/center to fill in. Miller is a tough defender and cerebral offensive player with 11 seasons of NBA experience.
Ironically, Miller was the Boston Celtics’ and its fans’ arch-enemy in the 2009 NBA playoffs. In last season’s seven game series, Rajon Rondo close-lined Brad Miller on a late-game shot, which infused animosity between Miller and the Celtics–animosity Miller thrived on.
