Scouting report
The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported again Monday that the Celtics have shown interest in Spurs center Jakob Poeltl. Jared Weiss recently broke down that possibility. Here are several other power forwards and centers who could be available at the deadline for one reason or another. Keep in mind: By combining the contracts of Danilo Gallinari and Justin Jackson with future picks, the Celtics could absorb almost $10.5 million in returning salary. They could add Blake Griffin to that same package of players to take back almost $12.8 million. Any target making more than that would require the Celtics to part ways with at least one player a little tougher to move on from.
“Hey, look, when you’re starting him and he has a nice little scruff dunk to start the game …” he said of the game in L.A. when neither Robert Williams nor Al Horford played. “I remember when that guy used to tear the rim down. The wear and tear of NBA life has him now scruff dunking — with runway. It wasn’t like he was going up off two feet. He was moving. I said, ‘Ooh, Father Time has chased him down a little bit.’ “But, seriously, he can still play. That was probably a bad example, because he can still help them. He’s big and strong, and he gives them another body he can throw into the mix and give them physicality, and, like I said, he can still play. But if he was still at a regular starter level, he’d have never been available to Boston.”
