Kwame Brown To Meet With Celtics On Wednesday

No good can come of this: the Celtics reportedly have interest in free agent Kwame Brown, the (terribly disappointing) No. 1 overall draft pick from 2001, and both Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers plan to meet with him on Wednesday.

"We're checking out a lot of possibilities - it's still very early in the process," Danny Ainge said today of what is certain to be a broad casting call for big men, including Shaquille O'Neal. [...]

The 6-11 Brown spent the last two seasons with the Pistons, and in strictly a backup (13.8 minutes per game) role averaged more rebounds (3.7) than points (3.3) last season. But his value as a shot blocker (0.6 career average) may be what the Celtics are looking at now.

Brown, of, course, is better known as one of the greatest draft disappointments of all time. Michael Jordan selected him for Washington with the first pick of the 2001 draft, and as the first high school player to ever go with the No. 1 pick, Brown never came close to living up to his draft pedigree.
