The Boston Celtics are reportedly pursuing former Houston Rocket's shooting guard Courtney Lee.
In an attempt to fortify their backcourt, the Boston Celtics are pursuing former Houston Rockets shooting guard Courtney Lee, ESPN.com's Marc Stein reports.
The pursuit of Lee makes sense, as the Boston Herald recently reported that Avery Bradley will indeed miss training camp and the beginning of the 2012-2013 season. Bradley, who underwent left shoulder surgery in May, will undergo surgery on his right shoulder on Tuesday.
Lee is a solid three-point threat (40 percent last season) and defends well. He would be a competent replacement for Bradley and a great complement to Rajon Rondo. Stein writes:
The Boston Celtics have emerged as a serious suitor for Courtney Lee after coach Doc Rivers met with the free-agent guard Saturday night, according to sources familiar with Boston's thinking.
