Default Boston Celtics offer Reggie Miller roster spot. Reggie is leaning towards taking it.

LINK: Reggie in Green?

Reggie Miller says he is contemplating a return to the NBA, this time with the Boston Celtics.

Miller, who turns 42 on Aug. 24, played his entire 18-year career with the Indiana Pacers before retiring in 2005. Since his playing days ended he has worked as a television analyst for TNT.

Miller was all set to continue that job when Celtics general manager Danny Ainge and coach Doc Rivers asked him to think about joining their revamped team in a reserve role, playing about 15 minutes per game.

Miller said he is calling friends and peers, seeking their advice and listening to their feedback before he makes his decision. He still plays recreationally, but must determine if he wants to go through the physical and mental grind of an 82-game season. He also wonders how his body would respond to the intensive training it would take to get him back to NBA shape.

The lure of playing in Boston is simple: with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen added to Paul Pierce, the Celtics feel they have a shot at an NBA championship. Like those three players, the only thing missing from Miller's list of accomplishments is a championship ring.

Miller, a five-time NBA All-Star, is seventh on the all-time list of games played with 1,323. He is 14th in scoring (24,305 points) and holds the NBA record for most made the most 3-pointers in NBA history with 2,560.

Since the Celtics' trades that brought in Allen and Garnett, the team has been filling out its roster with less heralded players, including guard Eddie House and center Scot Pollard.

Why don't they chase Malone, Stockton, and Barkley while they're at it?

I'd so do it. Karl Malone loves the ladies. And Barkley could just make fun of everybody.

Karl Malone is probably still in better shape than most bodybuilders, and he's what...45 now?

Haha. That would be indeed interesting. Do you think there is a real possibility that Miller will accept and come out of retirement?

Why? Don't you want him to take one more shot towards winning a NBA championship?

Agreed. And retired also means not working in broadcasting.

He is actually a decent broadcaster in my opinion.

Reggie is a great broadcaster. Maybe he could do commentary when he's on the bench?

Now that would be win win!

DO IT REGGIE!

Lol, it'll be funny to see him back, it's the attack of the NBA legends! Also, did Kenny Smith finally beat Miller in a three point contest? Shame Reggie, shame.

Interesting. Don't think he'd be a whole lot of help, but he could have another shot at a ring.

Doesn't do it for me. Seems more out of place than a giraffe in dark glasses trying to get into a 'polar bears only' golf club.

There's no way reggie will come back, and if he does, I dont think he will be very effective at his age.

The Cavaliers have one spot left on our roster maybe we can sign future HOF Scottie Pippen.

He had a good 18 year career with the Pacers. What do you expect Miller to do? Have the same numbers like he did in his last season? He's already 41-42 years old now.
