Ordinarily, the thought of taking a minimum contract flier on a former NBA All-Star and U.S. National Team member with the left-handed shooting stroke of a goddess would make me giddy with delight.

Sure, Michael Redd hasn’t been relevant in years, and a string of serious injuries put real doubt into whether he will ever return to relevance. I understand that. But after the Celtics signed Sasha Pavlovic to a fully-guaranteed deal last week, Redd looks pretty good, no? Unlike Pavlovic, at least Redd has shown the ability to make shots (and a positive impact) in his past. Plus, Redd’s only 32. And his father’s a pastor. As Tim Tebow proves beyond a reasonable doubt, athletic success comes to those with faith. (Just don’t tell that to my friend Brian, who prayed every night before sleep but was still cut from our freshman baseball team.)

But in this case, Boston’s continued interest in Redd (if true) leads me to believe Jeff Green’s mystery medical issues aren’t getting better any time soon. With Green in the lineup, and Marquis Daniels and Pavlovic beside him, there’s no room for Redd. But if the Celtics expect Green to miss significant time, all of a sudden acquiring Redd makes a lot more sense. This is all obviously just my own speculation, but this whole Green situation does not look good.
