Former No. 1 pick Brown to meet with Celtics

The Celtics’ quest for a big man has spread to former draft busts. Mark Bartelstein, the agent for Kwame Brown, said the team will meet with his client tomorrow in Orlando. Brown, the first draft pick of general manager Michael Jordan in 2001, has played with four NBA teams and is regarded as one of the biggest draft busts in recent memory.

Brown has always had an NBA body, even in high school, and is a decent post defender and the Celtics might be able to acquire Brown with less than the mid-level exception and at that is good news for a team approaching the luxury tax.


The Celtics are in the back of the line in regards to Brad Miller, who has drawn interest but has no scheduled meetings with Boston. Brown just turned 28 and should be in the prime of his career, but at this point would is a 16-to-20 minute per game player. He averaged 3.3 points and 3.7 rebounds last season for Detroit in just over 13 minutes.
