Left out in the Celtics  big summer moves is Kendrick Perkins  who underwent knee surgery and is expected to be about until the All-Star break. With Jermaine O’Neal  and Shaquille O’Neal  on board, the Celtics are loaded with size at the center spot, so where does that leave Perk?
“Kendrick has a very bright future and obviously he knows that we think very highly of him,” Danny Ainge said. “Were not certain when he is going to be 100 percent and that does us allow to be patient with Kendrick. At the same time I’m sure Kendrick is worried and nervous because we are going to win basketball games with this frontline even when he’s not playing. Hopefully he can just focus on getting healthy and competing for his job back.”
