Celtics coach Doc Rivers met with free agent Courtney Lee as the team begins to examine its options for replacing Ray Allen, according to an ESPN report.

According to a report by Marc Stein, the Celtics are a "serious suitor" for Lee, but would have to work a sign-and-trade deal with Houston to acquire him.

Lee, a guard/forward who averaged 11.4 points for the Rockets last season, has played four seasons in the NBA since being drafted out of Western Kentucky by the Magic. He was the 22d pick in the 2008 draft.

Allen decided Friday to join the defending NBA champion Miami Heat.
