The Celtics didn’t just meet with Kwame Brown today; they also worked him out. (CSNNE)
As a former No. 1 overall pick, Kwame Brown has repeatedly failed to live up to the lofty expectations that come with his draft status.
But he is big.
And he can defend.
And in all likelihood, he’ll come at a relatively inexpensive price tag.
Because of those factors, the Celtics have every reason to see the 6-foot-11, 270-pound big man as a viable option to add to their roster.
The C’s took a step in that direction on Wednesday when the worked out Brown here in Florida.
Danny Ainge, Boston’s president of basketball operations, was in attendance.
While Ainge acknowledges that Brown is someone of interest to the C’s, they by no means are ready to commit to him or any other free agent big man right now.
All jokes aside, my first thoughts: I wonder how bad he was during the workout. Can he catch entry passes from the people working him out? Or is it only in real games that he fumbles those?
My second thoughts: Kwame Brown. The C’s might as well work out Patrick O’Bryant.
