NBA Rumors: How Would Courtney Lee Fit into Boston Celtics' Championship Plans?

Houston Rockets free agent Courtney Lee is an intriguing addition for teams looking to add a consistent shooting guard to the rotation. 

He may not have especially exciting star potential, but there isn't much doubt about how he'll perform.

That's likely what interests the Boston Celtics, who are losing marksman shooting guard Ray Allen to the Miami Heat.

According to ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg, Boston is one of many teams with their eyes on Lee:

Free agent guard Courtney Lee, who met with Celtics coach Doc Rivers over the weekend, dropped by the Orlando Summer League on Monday afternoon and confirmed that Boston is one of "more than eight teams" in the mix for his services.

Apparently both sides are interested, so the only question left is how to make a deal happen.

If Boston can't convince Lee to take a pay cut, it would need to work out a sign-and-trade arrangement with the Rockets. Given how valuable Lee could be to the Celtics' title pursuits, it might be well worth the hassle.
