Celtics Offseason 2012: Boston Reportedly Has Interest In Carlos Delfino

The Boston Celtics have already been quite busy this offseason, and it doesn't appear they're ready to slow down just yet.

Doc Rivers and co. are reportedly looking to add another shooter from the outside, this time in the person of Carlos Delfino, according to

Delfino played last season with the Milwaukee Bucks, averaging 9.0 points per game to accompany 2.3 assists. The 29-year-old is planning on playing in the Olympics for his native Argentina, despite having undergone surgery in May to repair a sports hernia.

It's likely Avery Bradley will still be recovering from having both shoulders repaired when the 2012-13 season rolls around, so having a capable and experienced guard to play alongside newcomer Jason Terry is a priority.

Boston also is rumored to be courting Mickael Pietrus. Pietrus is a familiar face having played last year for Boston, and was a nice fit off the bench scoring just under 7.0 points per game and shooting 33.5 percent from 3-point land.
