With Tony Allen now out of the picture and Josh Howard nothing more than a possibility, the Celtics have reached out to… Antoine Wright and Damien Wilkins? (Boston Globe)
The job security and a chance for an expended role swayed Allen from the only organization he has played for. The Celtics could have re-signed Allen to a contract without salary cap constraints because they owned his Larry Bird rights.
The Celtics now must find a veteran defender at a low price because they are over the salary cap.
There are a handful of desired free agents, but salary will be an issue. Boston has reached out to former Toronto guard Antoine Wright, and former Minnesota swingman Damien Wilkins also could be a consideration.
Let’s just say Josh Howard is looking a lot better now. Howard could smoke twelve joints straight to the face, hobble around on his torn ACL and get arrested for choking out whoever’s singing the national anthem minutes before a game… and still be better than Antoine Wright and Damien Wilkins. Combined.
I continue to hope Danny has a master plan. Don’t let me down, Danny. Don’t let me down.
