Former Celtic Michael Finley Attempting NBA Comeback

New, 1 comment

Earlier this week, we learned that former Boston Celtics guard Ricky Davis signed a contract with the Maine Red Claws, the team's D-League affiliate in hopes to reach the NBA again. On Sunday, we heard of another, less famous Celtic attempting an NBA comeback.

According to, former Celtics guard Michael Finley is looking to make an NBA comeback after a year out of the league. Finley was on the 2010 Celtics roster that lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals. He's also played for the Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs before his stint with Boston.

Finley, 38, has played 16 seasons in the NBA and has averaged 15.7 points per game over his career. While Finley is unlikely to land back with the Celtics, he hopes that the right opportunity comes his way.

"My thing is, I want to play basketball, I would enjoy playing in the D-League, but at the same time I don't want to take an opportunity away from a young guy to get exposure. I'm still thinking about it. If the right situation comes, where I could be something like a player-coach, maybe I would take that opportunity." (via Hoops Hype)
