Celtics Rumored To Be Interested In Brendan Haywood

While it's been little secret that the Celtics are interested in free agent Brad Miller (and vice versa), he's not the only big man that has drawn the team's eye as a possible replacement for injured Kendrick Perkins. According to CSNNE.com's A. Sherrod Blakely, Boston has also inquired about the Mavericks' Brendan Haywood.

Prior to being traded to the Mavericks last season, Haywood was having one of his best seasons in the NBA with the Washington Wizards, averaging a near double-double with 9.8 points and 10.3 rebounds. [...]

Still, Haywood is a big body with experience who has proven himself a solid NBA big man who even with a healthy Kendrick Perkins, would battle for a starting job.

While Perkins is the better defender, Haywood has a better touch around the basket.

The Celtics could acquire Haywood, an unrestricted free agent, by signing him straight-up or by doing a sign-and-trade with Rasheed Wallace's contract, which Dallas could but out at a reduced amount, allowing them some extra financial flexibility.
