Celtics Want to Acquire a Shooter

An article on Yahoo! Sports stated the Celtics were looking to acquire a shooter for the bench:

What GM Danny Ainge wants is a shooter off the bench, but he’s struggling to find one. League sources say he made a bid for the Orlando Magic’s J.J. Redick recently, a guard he’s long coveted, but an offer of J.R. Giddens and Gabe Pruitt couldn’t come close to prying Redick. What’s more, Orlando isn’t motivated to fortify the Celtics. Suddenly, the Magic believe they can beat Boston. League executives say Ainge has become more persistent this week in searching out deals, but as a Western Conference executive said, “He just doesn’t have any players that anyone wants.”

I guess that Eddie House may have fallen out of favor with Doc. Either that or they want someone larger than six feet tall to be their 3-point specialist off the bench. One thing is for certain: the Celtics have NOTHING that other teams would want to trade for. I don’t see any trades being made with the Celtics involved, leaving us to wait for players to be bought out after the trade deadline to bolster our bench.
