Report: Mikki Moore and His Snakes are Headed to Boston

According to the Boston Herald, Moore could be in Celtic green as soon as tomorrow night: “NBA sources continued to say last night that 7-footer Mikki Moore will join the Celtics once he clears waivers today at 10 a.m. The 11-year veteran, who played for the C’s in 2002-03, was waived by Sacramento after the deadline last Thursday, meaning he doesn’t clear the 48-hour business-day period until today. At that point, sources say Moore, who has a number of high-profile suitors, will select the Celts. Moore is on the West Coast and could fly to Los Angeles today to get his physical. While a number if logistical issues have to be worked out, he could be with the team tomorrow night against the Clippers.”

    This will help a little.

  • Funkdoc

    yes, he wasn’t goos with udrih etc., but he was with kidd. So something tells me playing with the champs gets him in shape. if kendrick person and big baby can contribute, so can Moore. but more.

    KG and Mikki Moore on the same team? I didn’t think teams were allowed to have that much crazyness/intensity/energy at one time.

    Leon Powe might see his minutes drop when KG gets back from screaming his knee healthy.

    Mikki Moore is an 11 year vet? Really?

  • http://trulyhoops.blogspot.com Collin

    he still kinda creeps me out

    I heard yesterday he may be going to the Spurs

    @ Doc Funk: Yeah, he will. But the thing is . . . Powe>Big Baby Davis. But GBBD gets more minutes. I don’t get that. But I LOVE this signing.

    I knew Boston was going to get Mikki to come there.
    And moose, I’m pretty sure Davis gets more tick than Powe because he’s a better midrange shooter. Moore will defeintely help out one of the thinnest front courts in the league.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    Well, yeah. But if you’re looking for athleticism, post moves, three point plays, offensive fouls taken . . . Powe is your man. Leon brings so much more to the table than BB in terms of down low, but yes, Glen has that new midranger that he’s been rockin’ lately. But I’m a personal Powe fan.

    Powe must have slept with the daughter of someone in the front office… Never understood why Davis was playing more than him.

    11 years? Uh, how’d that happen. And, in the headline, good thing that ‘Snakes’ has an ‘s’ on the end.

  • http://www.stonesthrow.com/ Michael NZ

    @Z: if that were true, would Powe not actually play more to keep him from spilling the beans? As in, ‘play me more or I tell all!’
    Either way, he’s criminally under-used.

    ive never seen him play…dont even know who he is..but all he needs to do is play DEFENSE! and CRASH BOARDS!!!

    THATS IT!!!

    but when given the ball….go strong to the hoop

  • MalevolentKing7242

    Celts have Offense in Powe But what is this?!?!? They need defense not offense.

  • http://nbacheapseats.blogspot.com Chendaddy

    he’s like a taller skinner leon powe, except without the offense. whatever, now maybe joe smith will sign with cleveland if he gets released.

  • MalevolentKing7242

    They shoud have taken joe over moore but oh well clevland will still dominant boston. We are all wittness of the king

  • Sparker

    the celts are closer to what the nest were then. that is to say, they are a basketball team, which sacramento clearly is not

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    They are more a basketball team at present then the detroit pistons who seem to be playing more ‘spotlight’ than, spot-up.
