The Boston Celtics have an open roster spot and Danny Ainge said that another big man is a more pressing need than a backup point guard.
Ainge wouldn't comment on whether the Celtics have had conversations with Kenyon Martin.
“There’s some thoughts but there’s nothing imminent,” Ainge said of adding a player. “You’ve got to score and you’ve got to stop, it doesn’t matter what plays you run. It doesn’t matter if your playbook’s five [plays] or your playbook’s 500. We need to get stops and rebound the ball is what we need to do.”
The Celtics are last in the NBA in rebounding average.
