I don't know how this didn't make yesterday's news here Click Here (bostonherald.com). The Celtics claim this is Kendrick Perkins insurance. I just think that Danny Ainge set out to find someone more broken down than KG and Rasheed this year, or he just likes to drive Bill Simmons up a wall.
Jermaine O'Neal has just been brutally bad these last few years, there was no decline in skill with him it just all went at once like an NFL running back, but he's as done as done can be.
It's also possible that Danny Ainge was simply afraid that Perk would get more money elsewhere as a free agent next season (wasn't there a report that he turned down the Celts' initial offer of a contract extension)?
