Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports that by this time tomorrow Moore will be a Celtics:

Well... he is serviceable. Joe Smith is not happening.

I am thinking that if the Celtics went after Moore its becuase Smith isn't going to happen.

It's not thrilling, but I can't see how anyone could be upset about this. He's another body, and even if you think he's a bum, well, Doc has proven that he will give the minutes to the players that deserve them. If Baby and Powe prove that they are better options than Moore, then nothing will change.

If it were Mikki on Cleveland in last year's playoffs instead of Joe Smith, we'd probably be amped for this signing.

Color me excited!!!

Well, we needed a longer big off the bench, and we've got one - not ideal but it is one more asset.  And of course worst case we just drop him.  Fine with me, now let's see how he does over the next few weeks.

If Mikki Moore is suppose to replace the roll of PJ Brown from last years playoffs team, we have reason to be scared.

from seeing the little video of Mikki he looks like a Euro big to me, a great jumper but nothing inside. So no he will no replace the toughness of PJ

It is now probably time for everyone to acknowledge that Danny should have signed Mutumbo.

A couple thoughts from the "Celtics offered Mikki Moore a contract!" thread:

1. I'm on board with going after Moore (and signing him if it happens). Length and a jump shot are very valuable assets that are needed on this team.

2. I'd still make a run at Smith if he pops free. This team would still be lacking a 6th or 7th man. Smith could fill that role as he is a solid 2 way player.

3. The Celtics had a very bad off season. A championship caliber team shouldn't carry 4 projects (POB, Walker, Giddens, Pruitt), and 3 backup PFs (Baby, Powe, Scal). By the time the Posey talks fell through there wasn't much left to choose from in the market. But, the summer of 08 didn't have anywhere near the level of talent as the summer of 09 and 10 have (even on the MLE level). So i can understand The C's playing things conservatively (I dont mean cheaply though - they did fork over $5 million for House and TA). ...But there were other cheap options out there that we failed to get. I honestly believe the C's are targeting the better free agent classes of 09 and 10; and thus settled for a bad to mediocre offseason in 08.
