Via the Boston Globe:Agent Andy Miller, who also represents Celtics center Kevin Garnett, said he has not had a conversation about Martin with Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge since July.Martin is one of many veterans — including Mike Bibby, Gilbert Arenas, Erick Dampier, and Troy Murphy — waiting for another NBA chance. According to an NBA source, the Celtics have considered bringing in Dampier for a look.Erick (-a) Dampier played 15 games last season, averaging 0.1 points per contest. He appeared in four games against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference first round, putting up 4.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in 13.8 minutes. I didn’t remember at all how he played, so I looked back into the internets to find my reaction. Once, I wrote that “multiple ‘Erick Dampier still has hands made of brick’ reminders” were among the gifts Game 3 provided. Another time, during Game 6, I tweeted, “If the Hawks were to stop passing to Erick Dampier, I assume it would help their chances of forcing a Game 7.” And if you don’t want to take my word for it, listen to the Hawks owner: “Our center is Erick Dampier. God bless his heart, but he looks like a granddad.”So no, I don’t think Dampier would help much, even if he once incited a Lakers crowd by shoving Kobe in the open court.
