Semih Erden has been struggling in Cleveland and apparently longs for his glory days with the 2010-11 Celtics. It sounds like Byron Scott wouldn’t mind Erden back in green either:
“I was a little disappointed (in Erden),” Scott said. “This stint of three games that he hasn’t played, what I’m hoping is that gets through his head, and when he gets another opportunity, he’ll take advantage of it.
“If he plays hard every night, he has a chance to be a good player.”
It’s unlikely the Celtics have interest in returning Erden, although we assumed the same about Antoine Walker after he was traded and Danny Ainge brought him back a second time.
Perhaps Erden should take a page from ‘Toine and develop a three (or four) point shot.
