Quantcast

The Celtics need some more wing players now that Jeff Green may be sidelined for an indefinite period of time. Bogans is a tough, defensive minded player who has some experience guarding quality players. He would feel a roster need and would be a slight upgrade over Sasha Pavlovic, and a good bench player to integrate in the rotation.

How the Celtics can get him:

Well, we just need to give him a call and offer him a contract (he has just been waived by the Bulls minutes ago). As with James Posey, we could very easily add him with the veteran minimum. The amount of teams that may bid for him may be very limited too, probably only the Knicks and the Lakers (and the Pacers, who seem to target everyone we want) will offer him a chance to continue playing in the league



Pros:

Bogans is strong and fit to play D on big guards, and probably also able to hit the occasional jumper. He played and started the whole 82 games last season for the Bulls, showing he can be a durable player. We need some plan C in case both Green and Daniels have health issues, and Pavlovic won´t be enough backup for Pierce in case things don´t go well in the injury front.

Cons:

We mostly need a 3 that can provide some shooting, and Bogans quite doesn't fit the description. He is not young either, and not the best athlete out there.

Our roster may be reshaped with players as Bogans, Posey, Evans and Pryzbilla.  We need some insurance guys for the wings and the center positions. Bogans is a player with experience that wouldn't get outside of his role, รก la Keyon Dooling.

Stay tuned for more news on possible signings.

    man bogans is a slack, Posey would be a better pick up.

  3. Mar says:

    Get Powe & Posey. They've proven themselves very well as Celtics.

  4. Chris_the_Celtic says:

    hes very underrated lets get him for sure he will defensively break down a defender

    Bogans would be a solid addition. There just isn't anything exciting for us out there right now. I am leery of the Posey talk cause he hasn't really played consistent minutes since he left us the first time but if Green's ailment is serious Posey is probably the best option. We still need a 7 footer and Pryzbilla would be semi ideal.

    Bogans' performance last year >>> Posey's performance last year.

    Powe and Posey are proven and all but, we need a true big. The void that "The Trade" last year left will hurt us for years to come. Howards off the block at time being and we need a filler for the big void. I say a 3 way trade to get Kaman from the Hornets. Watched him play last year when the C's were out here on the left coast. He Isn't the most dominate out there but he fills the void well for us and has the potential to do well w/ us.

  9. shelbyl says:

    Hmm, a Kaman trade might make even more sense in 3 months. I don't know the details, but Hornets got Kaman for the expiring contract, and they could easily trade for Green's expiring contract (if he's still not OK in that term) By that time if the C's will need any players it will be in the Center position probably.

    That's good to keep in mind if feasible.

  10. Bogans also isn't an upgrade over Sasha because he's not a small forward, he's a shooting guard.

    Sasha is a legit 6'7"-6'8".

    Also (this just in) Leon Powe is done. Sorry guys but it's true... same with James Posey. PJ Brown is probably better than those two right now.

    I agree with a Chris kaman idea for draft picks that would give us a legit Allstar center
