The Celtics are being very open minded when it comes to their roster next season and some team officials spent Tuesday watching a workout by former third overall pick Adam Morrison, who spent the past two seasons winning two NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers while on their bench.
Morrison is a free agent and looking for work, and the Celtics are seeking a shooting specialist to bring off the bench.
Rule number one of free agency: When the local newspaper has to describe a team as “being very open minded” because they went to see a certain player work out, that player is not someone you want on the roster. Even if he was a college cult hero. Even if he has one of the better porn mustaches in the world. Even if he inexplicably has two more championship rings than John Stockton.
