Danny Ainge is the poker player who chases open-ended straight draws every time. Many times he’s left with a busted straight draw, but once in a while he gets his hand, like when he swung for the fences and hit a grand slam by acquiring Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett in two separate trades.

Signing Carl Landry (link explaining Boston’s interest) or Marcus Camby wouldn’t be such a colossal home run and might require significant creativity (maybe a sign-and-trade for Brandon Bass?). It’s improbable, since they’ll both receive plenty of interest on the market and will probably earn significantly more than the veteran’s minimum. But Ainge doesn’t care for improbability. If a free agent can play, chances are that he will be on the receiving end of a call from Ainge’s smart phone (see: how close the Celtics came to acquiring David West last season despite having no cap space whatsoever).

Camby’s older than your grandfather’s grandmother, but he can still block shots and he’d instantly become Boston’s best rebounder. Landry offers different strengths, but they would similarly help to plug one of the Celtics’ greatest weakness (what, you don’t think the C’s could use a dose of interior scoring?).

Neither Landry or Camby are likely additions, but that won’t stop Ainge.
