Reggie Evans, the NBA's league leader in inappropriate on-court groping is said to be looking at signing with the Celtics, Clippers, Kings or Grizzlies. Now that Chris Kaman is gone, it's safe for Evans to look at the Clippers as a possible destination.

Evans could choose the Celtics. Maybe that will help ease Ray Allen's pain. The Celtics star seemed a bit peeved that David West chose the Pacers over Boston.

Allen really took West to task, basically saying that signing with Indiana showed money was more important than winning a championship for West.

If Evans, Allen's former Seattle Supersonics teammate, chooses the Clippers or Grizzlies, what will Allen say about that decision? Seeing as though Evans is a far cry from West as a player, it probably won't evoke more than a smirk from Allen, but needless to say, the Celtics are desperate right now.

The NBA did not award the team with a injury exception for Jeff Green, who will miss the entire season with a aortic aneurysm. Now, the Celtics only have veteran minimum contracts to offer players to help bolster the team.

With the free agent exodus of Glen Davis, the health issues of Jeff Green and the free agent snub by West, the Celtics don't have a capable backup for Kevin Garnett.

Allen's comments were out of pure frustration, Celtics fans and front office are likely feeling the same thing, as the window for Boston's aging core is getting smaller and smaller. With depth issues in the frontcourt, the championship prospects for 2011-2012 are very much in doubt.
