The Globe's Adam Himmelsbach reported that, according to a league source, a group of veteran options for the Celtics includes Bogut, the Australian 7-footer who turns 33 in November. He considered signing with Boston last February before signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Bogut broke his leg in his first game with the Cavs and has been recovering this summer.
With the C's over the salary cap, the C's are allowed to offer a minimum-salary deal based on years of experience. That maxes out at $2.3 million for a player in the NBA for at least 10 seasons.
Himmelsbach mentions a return of Gerald Green or ex-Celtic defensive specialist Tony Allen as other possible veteran options.
