Boston could look for a replacement for Ray Allen this summer as the veteran shooting guard is entertaining thoughts of changing teams this off-season. If Allen does decide to leave the Celtics, GM Danny Ainge will need to find some offense through the NBA free agent market.
The latest from ESPN Boston has the team showing interest in Nick Young and for good reason. The former first round draft pick has a career average of 14 points per game, but in his two years of starting service for the Washington Wizards, the 27-year-old averaged 17 points per game.
Young is 6'6" and uses his good size to handle smaller guards on both ends of the court and Boston is likely going to need some help in the back-court and Young could add the depth this team needs to stay competitive in the Eastern Conference.
Boston did resign Kevin Garnett, but the front office is looking to add some younger talent and starting with a shooter like Young is a good sign for this team as they prepare for the 2012-13 NBA season.
