According to a report on ESPN.com , which cited league sources, the Celtics  have expressed interest in center Shaquille O’Neal . With the C’s already over the salary cap, they could offer no more than the $5.8 million per year mid-level exception. According to the report, O’Neal would be intrigued by the idea of playing for Celtics coach Doc Rivers  and with forward Kevin Garnett .
With Kendrick Perkins  sidelined for part of the 2010-11 season following surgery to repair his torn ACL, the Celtics are looking for help at center. O’Neal averaged 12.0 points and 6.7 rebounds a game while playing 23 minutes a night for the Cavaliers  in 2009-10.
The report said that O’Neal has also encountered mutual interest with the Hawks and Mavericks, and that if LeBron James  returns to Cleveland, he would consider a return to the Cavs. O’Neal, 38, has played for the Magic, Lakers, Heat, Suns and Cavs in his career.
