C's close on big man?
"We're close with a couple of free agents that we've looked at, but we'll see," Rivers said, according to the Boston Herald.
If something is imminent, don't expect it to be Ronny Turiaf, whose agent Mark Bartelstein indicated this afternoon that his client must still navigate the waiver process after being released by the Nuggets, then could take some time to assess his options with the goal of signing with a top contender.
That's not to rule out Boston as a potential landing spot and Turiaf drew immediate interest from the Green. But it's clear that Bartelstein is expecting numerous opportunities for his client and that could drag out the process.
As for a report earlier this week that said Bartelstein believes client Marquis Daniels is a buyout candidate, the agent noted Monday that it's merely a possibility depending on what the team envisions for Daniels' role moving forward and that the situation should play itself out this week. After struggling to get on the floor since late January, Daniels chipped in 8 points in 20 minutes of floor time in Denver.
