Center Mikki Moore’s agent said early this evening that his client has yet to make a decision on which team he will play for after he clears waivers tomorrow morning.
Agent Mark Bartelstein said the Celtics were amongst as many as four teams that Moore was mulling over joining. Bartlestein also mentioned Denver, New Orleans, Dallas, San Antonio, and Phoenix as potential suitors. He also added that Boston was a strong contender and said his client will not have a firm decision until tomorrow after he clears waivers. A source close to the Celtics also said that the franchise will be awaiting a decision by Moore in the morning and have received no commitment.
“It’s definitely something he’s interested in,” said Bartelstein of the Celtics. “But stuff happens (referring to Denver center Nene’s knee injury). We’ll wait until the morning to see where we are at.”
While the Celtics are a strong contender for Moore’s services, it’s possible other teams might be able to outbid Boston financially.
