Default Celtics close to getting everyones favorite...

PJ 'bad mothafucka' Brown

The Celtics appear to be close to adding free agent forward P.J. Brown to their roster.

Brown's agent, Mark Bartelstein, acknowledged it is "possible" that Brown could be a Celtic soon.

The 38-year-old Brown, who has been courted to return to his home state team, the New Orleans Hornets, has been inactive this season.

The Celtics have two roster spots to fill before Friday's playoff eligible deadline. The Celtics hope to land veteran guard Sam Cassell if he is bought out by the Clippers.

Brown, who has 14 years of experience, would bring needed depth in the frontline. The 6-foot-11 forward is known for his rebounding and tough interior defense. He averages 9.2 points and 7.8 rebounds per game for his career. He also would brings much-needed playoff experience, with 81 games under his belt with the four franchises he has played for, most recently as a member of the Chicago Bulls.
He was solid as a rock last year, I guess he wanted to spend more time with his family but finally got the itch. This would be huge for Boston to get a big guy like this that knows how to play and is fantastic on D and boxing out. They really needed a near 7 foot guy that knows how to play since the start of the year to backup Perkins even though Powe and Baby have played well(but come playoff time should only be used for certain matchups)
