    Rumor: C's to land Italian SF, Luigi "Gigi" Datome

    This could be completely made up, who knows? It's on a few other sites already so let's play along.
    http://www.notizie.it/basket-datome-...oston-celtics/

    Datome is 25 years old. Roughly 6-8. Plays SF and will probably carry that over to the NBA. His game looks purely face-up. Like most euroleague guys he shoots and passes well. Seems to love the 3ball, video shows him driving and dunking when the lane is open. He is the captain of ACEA Virtus Roma, the same team that gave us Gallinari, Belinelli, and Bargnani

    International players can sign for the vet min regardless of age. The rumored deal is 3yrs/490k which is close to what he's making right now. His contract is up as far as I know so we don't have to buy him out.

    Now that is a good one! From the video, he appears to be a high energy guy!

    Is this JG's back-up - PP's replacement?

    Sounds like when we tanked for Duncan and signed Marty Conlon to actually get minutes

    Exactly. Spark off the bench, and may keep some pressure on Jeff to score. Could also even play them together if both are hitting that spot up 3. Imagine Rondo Terry Datome Green KG They could space out the floor on a rondo KG pick n roll/pop, outlet to Green/Datome who drive or shoot the spot up 3.

    Is this the first step in the rebuild process? Is DA setting the C's up for a shot a A. Wiggins, in next years draft? We will all know in the next few weeks!!

    is he quick enough to play the 2? or is he purely a 3? if the latter, then i'd say we're looking at PP not being here much longer. and this guy backs up green at the 3. interesting summer fodder. i just wish the draft would hurry up and get here so things will actually start to happen.

    Again it's a rumor at this point. He's said to have denied the report on twitter but I think his team is about to play in the finals so that makes sense.



    From what I hear there are other teams interested in him so why would he choose the Cs unless those teams are really really bad... if the other teams are playoff contenders Im sure he would go that route...  lets face it, the Cs arent exactly a team that looks like a winner of any sort.

    Re: Rumor: C's to land Italian SF, Luigi

    When the Celtics hired Jay Laranagua as a scout, I knew that the Cetics were trying to get better scouting reports from Europe.  Jay was a very smart SG that had a decent carer in Europe. 

    You need pure 3 point shooters, especially with a PG like Rondo.  Exhibit A: the Spurs last nite.

    The kid was not drafted, because scouts he is a tweener and his 1 on 1 defense is questionable.
