Celtics Eyeing Shaq, Shaq Eyeing Celtics

Shaquille O’Neal is drawing attention from numerous teams, including the Boston Celtics, per ESPN.com.

O’Neal would presumably be a mid-level exception signing if he were to join the team. Given the fact that Kendrick Perkins won’t be back until the season is well under way, and the Celtics’ lack of rebounding off the bench, O’Neal might make sense for Boston.

For what it’s worth, O’Neal has also expressed interest in the Celtics, and would likely fit in well with a group of players he respects.

At 38-years-old, the question would have to be how well Shaq could hold up in a starting role while Kendrick Perkins is out. Last year, O’Neal only played in 53 regular season games, averaging 23.4 minutes a game.
