According to the Boston Globe, former Celtics forward/center P.J. Brown will likely be in attendance at New Orleans Arena Wednesday night when the Celtics take on the Hornets. Apparently, if he talks to Celtics brass, it won’t be about his return to the NBA.
“It’d be great to get him back, but I just don’t think he’s coming back,” Doc Rivers said. “He knows the invitation is always open, but I just think he’s moved on.
“He works out every day, but he works out because his family works out, you know? He’s not working out because he’s coming back to play.”
In other news, Tony Allen did not make the trip to New Orleans because he’s suffering from a thumb injury.
My Thoughts: The Celtics have been searching for a P.J. Brown-type player (like a Joe Smith) to fill in the backup center slot on their bench. Look no further than P.J. Brown himself!? I know Brown won his ring last year, but maybe he wants another? I know this is wishful thinking…
