Look for Rashad McCants to get a camp invite, beyond that… who knows?

The Celtics have taken a close look at Rashad McCants this summer, but it turns out they are not alone.

McCants agent says the Raptors, Grizzlies and Clippers are in the mix as well as the Celtics, according to a tweet from A. Sherrod Blakely of Comcast New England.

All of those teams may have roster spots open, but none really have minutes to give out to a guard.

McCants has a couple things to prove if he is going to make it back in the league, even at the end of the bench. We know he can score, although he’d have to shoot a higher percentage to really get some run. But more than that he has to prove that he is not going to be a problem off the court. He also has to move the ball and not zone out on defense on the court.

McCants has skills, but this is a business to NBA teams and there are other scorers out there. They want guys they can believe in.

As of yet, no invite out of that group.

    MSNBC sports columnist Mike Celizic passed away. Great piece on him:

    Great talent and is a good NBA with potential to be very good. He’s a talented player that tends to not put in great focus or effort every night. He seems to have gotten better as a player and person and deserves to be in the NBA. He’s one of the better players in the league. Great shooter, good athlete and good scorer. One of the strongest guards in the league and could be one of the best defenders if he puts his mind to it. He still has alot of upside and is a proven NBA player. I expect him to get a guaranteed contract from some NBA team looking for some young talent or a scorer off the bench. Good luck Rashad.

    He’s too talented not to be in the league. McHale screwed the guy and then talked bad about him when he left which is the reason he’s had trouble getting back in the NBA. Some team is going to take a chance and they’ll be glad they did. To be honest, Rashad is a starting guard in this league. He was Eric Gordon before Eric Gordon.

    Will someone please tell me what off the court problem that McCants has? I have not heard of any; none, as in 0, nada, nothing, and if anyone know of any please post them here for the world to see. So why is everyone saying there is off this court problems? Kevin McHale! McHale has really put the shaft to McCants because he wanted to be a mean asshole. I have no respect for McHale or people like him.
