Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers spoke with the Boston Herald recently about the needs of the team, as it pertains to players who might be re-signed, and free agents who might be courted for a spot on the Celtics roster.
"We have to add someone this summer if we want to win it [again]," he said. "We have to add shooting, and Paul [Pierce] needs a solid backup, which would help Paul drastically.
"One thing we have to absolutely add is a veteran. One thing that happened [following Kevin Garnett's injury] was that we got young quickly. Bringing in another veteran, having him in the locker room, helps all the young guys."
Rivers said he also would not rule out bringing Stephon Marbury back for another season with Boston.
"He'd be much better" Rivers said. "A full training camp would make a big difference for him. First of all this year, Steph needed to play in the NBA again."
