Marcin Gortat (@MGortat on the tweet machine) has expressed a fondness for Boston in the past. But today the free agent center has made it sort of obvious that he’d be open to coming to Boston with a retweet of a Photoshopped picture of himself in Celtics gear. Nowadays, that’s one step short of knocking on Danny Ainge’s door.
Jay talked about Gortat a bit this morning. I like Gortat too, but the question is mostly about his price tag. He made $7.7 million last year, and if he demands a raise, he might price himself out of Boston. If he’s just looking for more years rather than more money, then maybe the C’s can throw him a 3 or 4 year deal.
A big plus for Gortat if he joins the C’s… no more getting faked out by Rondo.
