Found December 09, 2011 on Celtics Town:
Though Leon Powe has mentioned multiple times that he would like to return to the Boston Celtics — and the C’s undoubtedly have a need for low-post threats — Powe’s agent said the Celtics are not interested in signing his client. (Boston Herald)Though Leon Powe had expressed interest in a return to the Celtics, his first NBA team, the interest apparently isn’t mutual. The power forward likely will return to the team he finished last season with – the Grizzlies.“I talked to (the Celtics) a while ago, but they’re not interested,” agent Aaron Goodwin said. “I think he’d like to go back to Memphis.

I'm healthy! Boston Herald: “I believe that conditioning-wise, I can go a lot further,” he said. “You can’t control injuries and things like that, but physically, if it comes down to pure strength — quads, legs, core, upper body — I’m a hell of a lot stronger.” “I’ve been challenged all my life,” said O’Neal. “This ain’t nothing new. If I was afraid...
