Reggie Miller says he is contemplating a return to the NBA, this time with the Boston Celtics.
Miller will be 42 at the end of the month and retired with the Pacers in 2005. Danny Ainge and coach Doc Rivers have asked him to think about joining the new-look C’s in a reserve role, playing about 15 minutes per game backing up Ray Allen. Miller is interested, but also nervous about how his body will hold up. However, the lure of a possible championship may override those concerns. If the Celtics were to win it all this year, it would be a storybook ending for first-time champions Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Allen and possibly Miller.

I think Reggie Miller, if he can still play a little, could be a great piece of this puzzle. Reggie Miller is the all-time leader in 3-pointers made and assuming he can still stroke it, he could be an assassin with Pierce, Allen and Garnett on the floor at the same time. Reggie would bring a great veteran presence to the Celtics’ bench. Imagine a lineup of Eddie House, Reggie Miller, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett on the floor at one time. The prolific shooting on the floor at one time would be enough to scare even the Suns. But, until Reggie decides, this is all just wishful thinking. But the way the offseason has gone, it wouldn’t surprise me if Reggie does sign, there still isn’t one more pickup on the way.
