No McDyess for Celtics

It has been a question asked of Doc Rivers for weeks, are the Celtics interested in Antonio McDyess?
Rivers no longer has to avoid addressing free agency — McDyess chose to return to the Detroit Pistons.
On Sunday night McDyess chose his former team over 18 other organizations, including the Boston Celtics. Marc Spears of the Boston Globe reported Celtics President Danny Ainge had made phone calls to both McDyess and his agent, Andy Miller. Miller also represents Kevin Garnett. McDyess was traded to the Denver Nuggets earlier this month as part of the Allen Iverson deal but never had any interest in playing for the Western Conference team. He will be eligible to suit up for the Pistons on December 7.
