Doc Rivers: ‘We’re in no rush’ to change the roster

WALTHAM — Yes, things are not great right now. Yes, there are big questions about the Celtics’ ability to rebound and handle themselves in the paint. And yes, they just got manhandled by the Nets on the parquet.
But Doc RIvers said Thursday that he and Celtics basketball operations chief Danny Ainge aren’t about to give up on this group quite yet, though if a player or two is out there that can help they’d consider everything and anything.
“If there somebody out there, we’re obviously going to bring them in,” Rivers said. “But we’re in no rush. We’re not going to overreact to the way we’re playing. We’re not playing well. Let’s not overreact to it by trading the team, or trading guys. Let’s see if we can get it right first.”
The name that comes to mind is 34-year-old free agent Kenyon Martin, the 6-foot-9 power forward who played most recently for the Clippers last spring, helping them make a run in the playoffs.
Still, Rivers believes what he has right now can work.
“I’ve seen it,” Rivers said. “I saw it in the Oklahoma game. It’s in us but what I don’t know about our team are we one of those teams that we can’t be consistent. If we are one of those teams, then we do have to make changes because we have to be consistent.”
