Seeking Bench Depth, Celtics Reportedly 'Consider' Re-Signing Eddie House

Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe reports the Boston Celtics have discussed the possibility of re-signing veteran combo guard Eddie House to a deal worth $1.35 million, the minimum for a player with 10 years of NBA service. House, who appeared in 244 combined regular- and post-season games for the Celtics from 2007 to 2010, was dealt him to the New York Knicks at the trading deadline this past season.

Benbow's report isn't speculative; it includes on-the-record comment from Mark Bartelstein:

"It’s something [Celtics president] Danny [Ainge] and I have discussed," House's agent Mark Bartelstein said. "But nothing’s imminent."

Boston could certainly use backcourt help, as it only boasts Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Nate Robinson, and rookie Avery Bradley at the guard spots. House is little more than a three-point specialist at this stage of his career--during his first tour with Boston, over 56% of his shot attempts came from beyond the arc, and he launched from there once every 4.7 minutes--but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Stay tuned to this StoryStream for updates on House and everything else involving the Celtics' efforts to add to their NBA Finalist roster from last season.
