There has been much talk among Celtics fans about the possibility of bringing Nenad Krstic back this season. He played very well in the Euroleague last season and had expressed a desire to possibly return to the NBA. The Celtics still own his Bird rights and that would have allowed them to go over the cap to sign him, which is very useful when you only have the biannual exception of under 2 million to offer free agents.
With the announcement that Krstic has agreed to a new contract with the club that will run until the end of 2013-14 season with club’s option for another year, the door has closed to a return to the Celtics. KG may end up at center again, but even with that and Melo waiting in the wings, the Celtics still need to address their center position at some time and one option just went away.
