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. He was able to get some minutes there.”

Bringing back Powe would have been largely a sentimental move. He’s not the same player who played in Boston during the 2008-09 season, or at least he wasn’t last year. But the C’s need bodies. With the expected acquisitions of Marquis Daniels and Keyon Dooling, Boston is at ten players to begin training camp today (not including the handful of training camp invites, Gilbert Brown among them). The next couple days might get crazy.
