Latest big man linked to C’s: Jermaine O’Neal

O’Neal joins Brad Miller , Shaquille O’Neal , Brendan Haywood  and Kwame Brown  in the race for the Celtics’ mid-level exception and a chance to replace the injured Kendrick Perkins . Brown is obviously the least accomplished of that group.
The Celtics made O’Neal look terrible in the playoffs, but he’s younger than Miller and Shaq and, playoffs aide, O’Neal had a good season with Miami in 2009-10. He appeared in 70 games for the first time since 2003-04 and he shot over 50 percent for the first time in his career en route to averaging 13 points and seven rebounds a game.
It’s expected that the free agent logjam will open up once LeBron James  make his decision Thursday. O’Neal was not expected to re-sign with the Heat, an expectation that became reality once Chris Bosh announced he was going to Miami with Dwyane Wade .
