Rip Hamilton has been released by the Detroit Piston, not amnestied, and will be looking to sign with a contender.

Hamilton averages 17 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists in 12 NBA Seasons (9 with Detroit). His percentages are 45% FGs, 34% 3PT, 85% FTs. Like Celtics Ray Allen, Rip Hamilton is a UCONN alumni and has been compared to Future Hall of Famer Reggie Miller. While Hamilton isn't the three point shooter that Ray and Reggie are/were, he is just as good playing off the ball.

If the Celtics could bring him in it would provide them with a "backup Ray Allen" to back up Ray Allen.

At 6'6" Rip could also play some Small Forward.

    i think that j-rich will be a Bull and rip comes to boston for the mid level

  7. Don't need Mid-Level for Rip, he's still getting paid by DET.

    I've heard that Chicago are involved in a three way trade to get Jamal Crawford.

  8. Jenda says:

    He'd be really good. But I doubt he could play much SF. He lacks the bulk for the job.

    would be nice to get him or Jamal Crawford

  10. He's played forward before. He's such a hard match up on the other end that it makes up for it.
