The Boston Celtics are taking interest in two players who were on last year’s roster of the Houston Rockets. According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, the Celtics have emerged as serious contenders for guard Courtney Lee and center Marcus Camby.
With Ray Allen now gone to the Miami Heat, Boston could use some extra help at the guard position to compliment Jason Terry — who was recently signed — and Avery Bradley. Lee averaged 11 points per game last season and was 40-percent from behind-the-arc.
The Celtics also are looking to sign-and-trade for Camby and will also have to get Lee. Several teams are interested in the two, so it could be tough for Boston to land both along with their financial flexibility.
We’ll see what Boston does, but they aren’t going to give up on them.
