P.J. Brown Joins the Celtics

Danny Ainge confirmed on WEEI today that the Celtics have signed free agent veteran forward P.J. Brown. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but the deal is official as confirmed by league sources.

Reaction: The Celtics have long needed some front court help, perhaps just as much as they needed a backup point guard. What’s great about this acquisition is that the C’s didn’t need to trade anything to get P.J. Brown, they just needed to pay a little money. He’s going to help out Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Garnett bigtime. When either are in foul trouble or injured, at least we have a veteran rebounding presence who also can score in the low post. He’s more valuable up front than Brian Scalabrine, and even Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis or Leon Powe due to his expierence.

I must add that I have called for this signing on a few occasions. Can you imagine if they add Sam Cassell, too?

  1. Screw Cassell, especially after the stunt he pulled in the Boston Garden last month. He plays great with Garnett, but to add another old veteran will just slow us down.

  2. haha he was being competitive. I dont think it hurts to have him off the bench as insurance for Rajon Rondo. He can pass and that’s all he will do. But, your point does make a little sense. Why fix something that isn’t broken?

  3. PG is the only real problem. But C was the 2nd most need. So no harm done. And maybe a PG back-up can still be added.
