#CelticsTalk: #Celtics have expressed some interest in #Bucks Carlos Delfino w/Mayo out and Courtney Lee too pricey, source tells #CSNNE.com
— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) July 19, 2012

CSNNE's A. Sherrod Blakely is reporting via Twitter that the Celtics are interested in Bucks' free agent, Carlos Delfino.

Delfino, a 6'6" guard/forward, averaged 9.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, in 28 minutes per game last season. He shot 40% from the field and 36% from beyond the arc. It would appear that the Celtics are moving on past Courtney Lee. I would hope that Pietrus is also a possibility. He has made no secret of wanting to come back and he's a great locker room guy and was playing very well before his knee started acting up again.  I'm sure there will be plenty more "Celtics are Interested in Player X" posts coming up!

Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) July 19, 2012 If the Celtics can't get Courtney Lee, Delfino would be an excellent fall back option. He can score, shoot the 3, defend, and is pretty tough. He's been a starter the majority of...

Ryan Hollins Draws Interest

Celtics Center Ryan Hollins has drawn interest in Free Agency from New Orleans.

Jermaine O’Neal forgets the internet exists, recycles ridiculous excuses
