Hevdog breaks down the NBA – Boston Celtics part deux

After reading my sage advice to sign another big man, Danny Ainge agreed to terms with Scot Pollard. (My 3rd choice among ‘big men’ free agents behind Mutombo and PJ Brown). Scot brings another veteran presence to the team. He also brings playoff experience after seeing action with the Sacramento Kings and Indiana Pacers. He’s a guy who you can put at PF or C for short periods of time. I would expect for him to average about 12 min a game and 2 pts and 3 reb. This will allow a rotation of Garnett, Perkins, Pollard, Scalabrine, Powe and Big Baby for the PF & C positions. (Garnett and Scal could also play SF if needed). WEEI’s Dale and Holley also just mentioned that the C’s are looking at Sarunas Jasikevicius. You may remember him as the short white guy in the full warm up suit on the Golden State Warriors sideline going crazy during the Warriors’ 2006 playoff run. This would allow even more of a back-up plan if Rajon Rondo doesn’t pan out. Of course, signing for the veteran minimum would help.
