CelticsBlog, the best Boston Celtics site on the planet, had an interesting rumor to pass along this morning - Leon Powe could be close to accepting a deal with the Cavs. Powe, whose energy and passion have helped him overcome numerous injuries in his career, is a free agent and coming off yet another surgery after suffering a knee injury during the Playoffs.
Per CB -
I'm told by another source (these things are just coming out of the woodwork these days) that Leon Powe is considering an offer from Cleveland. Apparently Dallas has an offer to him as well, but with Drew Gooden signing he might be leaning towards taking the Cavs offer. He still has not received an offer from Boston.
A note on all these rumors. I'm not talking to agents and players myself. I'm getting them from people that I think are credible but you can never be sure about who they are getting them from and so on. This is the nature of rumors so please always take with a grain of salt.
Personally, I have always liked Powe and he would be a solid addition, if he could come back close to full strength.
