Tony, Eddie Returning
Posted by r1zzo23 on July 22, 2008
The Celtics agreed to terms with guards Eddie House and Tony Allen to return, GM Danny Ainge announced today. Both will get two-year contracts (although House’s second year is a player option, according to an NBA source).
These re-signings definitely help solidify our paper thin bench. Eddie gives us that scoring point guard option off the bench that we came to really appreciate late in the playoffs last season. Tony Allen, now an entire year and a half removed from that gruesome knee injury, hopefully can become the defensive stopper he used to be. If he can get his offensive confidence back as well, that would be a huge boost to the 2nd unit. Now it’s time to see who else Danny will scoop up before the season starts.
