Boston is looking to make one last run at an NBA title with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, but adding some depth and scoring off the bench is needed if the Celtics want to contend with Miami in the Eastern Conference.
The latest rumor from Ralph Longo suggests GM Danny Ainge looks into adding veteran shooting guard Michael Redd. The soon-to-be 32-year-old averaged just over 8 points for Phoenix last season, but he was limited to just 15 minutes of playing time and a move to Boston could see both those numbers increase significantly.
Redd has averaged over 19 points per game in his career and has hit 38 percent from three-point territory, both of which could help the Celtics as they look to win another championship. The former second round pick is looking to continue his career and after three straight years of missing several games with injuries, last year he returned to health and played 51 games with Phoenix.
The NBA off-season has been very active for several teams, including Boston, but the Celtics still need bench scoring and signing Redd could be the move that carries this team past the Heat and into the Finals next year.
