Danny Ainge and the Celtics will have a new weapon in their arsenal in their pursuit of pending free agent Kevin Durant this summer: the New England Patriots’ newly-signed defensive end, Terrance Knighton.

Knighton, 29, grew up in the Hartford, Conn. area and is a long time Celtics fan, frequently showing his support for the team through his Twitter account.

And apparently, he’s going to do all he can to get the Thunder’s seven-time All Star in green.

It’s good to see the New England teams working together.
