Via the CelticsBlog: “I’m told by another source (these things are just coming out of the woodwork these days) that Leon Powe is considering an offer from Cleveland. Apparently Dallas has an offer to him as well, but with Drew Gooden signing he might be leaning towards taking the Cavs offer. He still has not received an offer from Boston.”
When healthy Leon Powe is a solid big to have in your rotation, but I can’t get too excited about this possibility based on his injury situation. Do you take a chance on Powe for the second half of the ’09 season if you can get him at a discounted rate? Sure, why not. But there is no team that is more intimately aware of his injury situation than Boston, and the fact that they haven’t extended him an offer of any type as of yet, raises a bit of a red flag if you’re asking me. We’ll keep you posted.
