Add Houston's Shane Battier to the list of perimeter players that possess the ideal combination -- veteran know-how with an expiring contract -- to interest the Boston Celtics.

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has publicly acknowledged the need for backcourt reinforcements thanks to the Marquis Daniels' bruised spinal cord and Delonte West's spotty health all season.

After the name of Cleveland's Anthony Parker surfaced Friday as a player that Boston has joined conference rival Chicago in pursuing, sources said Monday that the Celtics and Rockets have likewise discussed the prospect of Battier moving East.

Yet it's too soon to say whether the teams can reach an agreement on a deal to send Battier to the Celtics, given that Boston's trade chips are limited and since Houston is regarded as one of the most aggressive teams in a conservative market and might need Battier's expiring $7.4 million salary for a bigger move.

not if he gets extended minutes. But if he only plays 15-20 minutes a game, he could help a lot off the bench. And his contract expires after the season, so this would obviously be a short term thing.

I would like it if I were a celtics fan.. but only if the celtics didn't give up a lot to get him.

The Bulls need to hurry up and buy-out Richard Hamilton's contract.

Yeah... lakers should try sending Artest back to the Rockets for Battier. But the lakers would have to give up a bit more since the Rockets probably wouldn't want Artests contract.
