Celtics Sign Sasha Pavlovic

They couldn’t nab Corey Brewer, so the C’s settled for Pavlovic. From the Boston Globe: “Celtics president Danny Ainge said before last night’s 115-103 win over the Suns he wanted to add an experienced wing to play behind Paul Pierce, and Pavlovic was a contributor on the Cleveland team that ran into the Celtics in the 2008 playoffs. He was dealt to Phoenix in June 2009 in the trade that netted Shaquille O’Neal. After playing last season with the Timberwolves, Pavlovic played with the Mavericks and Hornets this season on 10-day contracts. He was let go by the Hornets last month. Ainge said he had interest in Brewer, a 24-year-old swingman who was the No. 7 pick in the 2007 draft, but didn’t have the money to lure him in. Brewer signed a three-year deal worth between $7 million and $8 million. ‘We had interest in Corey,’ Ainge said. ‘We had a conversation with him. Dallas is a good team, too.’ In 466 games, Pavlovic has averaged 5.4 points and 1.8 rebounds. He is a career 35 percent 3-point shooter and canned 7 of 21 triples in 14 games this season.”

    Sasha would be good on the Knicks. Walsh needs to drop Walker and sign him. Get him to the KNICKS, DOLAN!

    I don’t know why teams do this. You would better serve your ball club by getting the best shooter you can find in the D-League. A young guy with energy and a burning desire to make the big time. The kind of guy that will chase on D and want to prove himself to Doc Rivers and the team in training, he’ll sit on the bench and learn and be ready to come in.
