The Boston Celtics have contacted retired shooting guard Reggie Miller in an effort to convince him to come back to the NBA and join the team in a reserve role. General Manager Danny Ainge and Head Coach Doc Rivers have both spoken with Miller to gauge his interest in playing for the Celtics, who are the clear favorites in the Eastern Conference now with Paul Pierce’s new teammates Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett.
Clearly the Celtics are doing all they can to bring in the least skilled players to play alongside the triumvirate of Pierce, Allen and Garnett, as the two other recent additions to the team are Scot Pollard and Eddie House. After trading away Al Jefferson, Gerald Green, Theo Ratliff, Ryan Gomes and Sebastian Telfair, Ainge has been looking for ways to fill out the rest of the roster.
If Miller decides to stay retired, look for Ainge to start making contact with his next list of desired players:
– Scottie Pippen
– Charles Oakley
– Clyde Drexler
– Kevin Johnson
– Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
