Celtics Interested in David Lee

Boston was reportedly the first team to contact the free agent forward. The Globe reports: “The Celtics have also reached out to Knicks free agent David Lee, according to Lee’s agent Mark Bartelstein. The Celtics’ need for a big man is obvious with Rasheed Wallace’s imminent retirement and Kendrick Perkins’s upcoming ACL surgery. Bartelstein told the Globe earlier in the day that the Celtics had contacted Bulls free agent Brad Miller. Lee already has several suitors. He will reportedly meet with Miami, Chicago, Minnesota and New Jersey in the next two days.”

    This would be phenomenal. We could use a great rebounder. His defense would need to improve, though.

    Lakers offered Mike Miller a 30 mil contract supposedly. The rich just keep getting richer.

    David Lee should take it. The Knicks don’t care about him.

    David can get more money outside of Boston, and he probably will. While I’d love to see him in green, Celtics don’t need another under-sized big man. They need to go get someone like Shaq and focus on re-sign Ray Allen as well.

    as a boston fan i would love to see that. Its the best situation for Boston and Lee also. Lee needs those fundamental teams but not the crazy run n gun style

    Shaq HELL NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

    Shaq – wow. Has anybody ever won a ring with the Lakers and the Celtics?

    I’d love to see David Lee play in Boston. He’d be a great addition to the Celtics roster. :D

    Lee needs to be able to play the 4, he won’t be going anywhere that he has to play out of position.

    lee as the center is not the formula for the championship team.

  • jim

    would be a great player for the Cs.
    will need to play power foward
    would be a great decision
    lee would be better than shaq or miller
    i wanna see him in green
    would be a great sixth man

    Avid Lee has got to be a smokescreen for something bigger. With Scal, they have enough defensively inept big men.

    Lee would be nice but he definately needs to get better on defense. Sure we’ll take him!

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com Seth

    @LA Huey, Scal is a free agent. He’s not with the Celtics (and I’m crossing my fingers he never again will be).

  • ccantrell

    david lee would blend in nicely with the celtics.. and they are in desperate need of a big man who will defend, rebound, score some easy buckets.. lee is just this.. he would prolly get bout 15 n 10 with the celtics.. jus a lil statistical drop, but hey, for a shot at a ring? boston would be his best bet to a ring

  • ccantrell

    and also to u haters.. shaq would not hurt their system any at all.. he would be excellent for what they would need him for, which is to rebound, shut down other bigs, and take up as much space in the paint as possible.. winning a ring with boston would be a good way to go out

    David Lee is better than Garnett at this point… He doesn’t deserve to come off the bench. Lee deserves to start elsewhere.

  • LA Huey

    @Seth, ah, thanks. Then this is a good move as the void left by Scal needs to be filled. Unless Bonner’s available…

  • NBA kid

    not a good pick up for Boston, lee is a decent rebounder but terrible defender and his offensive numbers are inflated with ny’s offense

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    cosign OMP… I hate when power forwards are forced to play the 5.. And in rare cases, 5s play the 4 (Tim Duncan)

  • vtrobot

    david lee is undersized and it doesn’t stop him from being great. danny, please get this done.

  • vtrobot


  • Yesse

    Nate and Lee together again. Cool.

  • Dasmin

    Lee is good and better than perk. He can play the 5 like in NY. And if KG gets hurt again (which is likely) he can play with perk. Playing with perk and KG will be good for lee. He will be taught by them. Lee will learn defense escpecially post defense from 2 experts. KG can teach him some offensive low post moves nd how to be a good picl setter.

    I love Danny Ainge but he has got to do better than trying to get Brad Miller. Lee wuold be great or Amare. Come on Danny Boy get the real All Stars!
