Reggie Considers Celts

It appears the Celtics are trying to get even more dominant in the Eastern Conference. Now there are rumors that they have had talks about bringing Reggie Miller in from retirement to come off the bench.


"Reggie Miller says he is contemplating a return to the NBA, this time with the Boston Celtics.


Miller, who turns 42 on Aug. 24, played his entire 18-year career with the Indiana Pacers before retiring in 2005. Since his playing days ended he has worked as a television analyst for TNT.

"I'm always flattered when my name is mentioned as someone who can still help an NBA team win a championship," Miller said Wednesday in a statement relayed to The Associated Press by the TNT network. "I've had limited discussions with Celtics management about their roster and a potential role for me. At this time, I'm enjoying my role as an analyst with TNT."

Miller was all set to continue that job when Celtics general manager Danny Ainge and coach Doc Rivers asked him to think about joining their revamped team in a reserve role, playing about 15 minutes per game."

The Celtics recently added the services of Scott Pollard to provide some depth to their bench which was depleted. Adding a superstar like Miller would make the team even greater by far as it would give a solid backup shooter for Ray Allen and Paul Pierce. In addition, Reggie has been known to knock down huge game winning shots throughout his career. Having two sharpshooter three point specialists would be deadly to opponents. It might also improve Ray Allen even more, as the two would compete in practices through 3 point shootouts.
