C's show interest for Charlie Bell

BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Celtics are interested in Milwaukee Bucks guard Charlie Bell, a restricted free agent. Bell's agent, Mark Bartelstein, says he's talked with the Celtics, who are looking for the right players to fit around Kevin Garnett. The Celtics landed the power forward in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Bucks would have the right to match any offer for Bell. Bucks general manager Larry Harris says he hopes to retain the former Michigan State star. Bell has been a valuable backup and part-time starter for the Bucks during the past two seasons.

This is interesting. I doubt we get him because Milwaukee will most likely match any offer we make and we aren't willing to spend a lot of money on him but he's a versatile player who would be great to have off the bench. I could see him getting considerable time in the rotation if we sign him. This is just interest at this point though, there don't appear to be heated talks.
