Remember Tony Battie?


Well, the 34-year-old big man with a handy baseline J is apparently interested in signing with the C’s if New Jersey, who barely uses him, buys Battie out by Monday’s deadline. If Battie is on the Nets after tomorrow’s deadline, he cannot play for another team in the playoffs, even if the Nets subsequently buy him out. 

WEEI.com’s Jess Camerato broke the story today:

WEEI.com has learned the Celtics are one of the teams Battie would be interested in signing with if he is bought out. According to a source familiar with the situation, Battie would eye the top three or four teams in each conference, which makes sense for a veteran player who is trying to maximize the years he has left in the NBA.

By my count, the C’s have two roster spots open. 

Is there room here for Battie to contribute?

  • I love Green

    Well if he joins the Celts, Shelden Williams who has already rented an apartment on the end of our bench, probably won’t play for the rest of the season. Spray tan will likley join Shelden in DNP land. We got Perk and Garnett, then Sheed and Big baby backing them up. Battie could probably find 10 minutes a game and hopefully contribute.

    Battie isn’t good enough to crack the Celtics rotation and would be fighting with Shelden for that third string C/PF role.

    Not convinced Battie can beat Shelden out for those minutes.

    I don’t see him as an upgrade. No point in signing him unless you really want a third string center with size + length.

    If Wyc is willing to pay for it, then why not? We got the roster spots and there isn’t really anyone in free-agency that’s any better. It’ll give us some more options. Will he be a PJ or a Mikki?

    Two words: Battie sucks.

  • GranTur

    Our problem is offense and Battie offers none of it.

    Is he really worse than Sheed?

  • Ricardo

    If he can dunk, at this point, ill take him over davis

    what about Michael Finley?? He’s 36, going 37, but maybe can offer some offense in place of Pierce while he’s out or off the bench…
