Leon Powe Waived By Cavs: Could He Return To Celtics?

In the flurry of moves Thursday, the Cavaliers cut ties with veteran forward Leon Powe. Yes, the same Leon Powe that won a ring with the Celtics in 2008. Now that the Celtics have three open roster spots (or two if you count the 10-day contract given to Chris Johnson) after making three trades, the team could look to add Powe to give the team some muscle up front.

Powe told CSNNE.com’s Jessica Camerato he would be open to a return to Boston.

“I’ll be happy wherever I end up, but Boston is always holding a special place in my heart,” Powe told CSNNE.com on Thursday evening. “The fans were so good to me, everybody up there was so nice, and it would be a great thing to return back to the Celtics if I could.”

Powe is averaging 5.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in just 14 games this season.

Danny Ainge may get in touch with Powe as the team looks to round out its roster for the playoff run, but also look for the C’s to target Troy Murphy. The 6-foot-11 forward/center will likely be bought out of his expiring contract by the Warriors.

  1. Powe would be an awesome addition. But I think the Celts should also go after Sam Dalembert. He’d be the perfect replacement for Perk, and he’s supposed to get his contract bought out. He is virtually the same as Perkins in almost every aspect of his game.
