I've been thinking a lot about who the C's are gonna try to get to "replace" Posey; as Ainge said it's not that simple. This team's style is going to slightly change without Posey, particularly the identity of the bench. Of course the bench's identity as we know it depends equally as much upon whether TA, House and Cassell come back, but whoever grabs that swingman spot will have an undeniable impact, and hopefully it will be a positive one. I am partially taken with the idea of signing another "charismatic" player - this Celtics team can probably bring the best out of such types. That's why someone like Matt Barnes still appeals to me; the sum of the parts becomes greater than just the individual talent added if it all works out well. Barnes could be that firestarter on the cheap; Micheal Finley could be too, in a different way, if San Antonio really would let him go.
But there might be an even less expensive immediate solution. And his name is Bonzi Wells. Bonzi thrives in situations that are emotionally charged, and with KG around the Celtics will be nothing less than maniacal night in and night out. Such brooding and screaming could be perfect for Mr. Wells' particular mental and physical skillset. He is a wild card, and when he is on - which can be for long stretches - he can be a dominant player in this league. Yes, he's 31 and might be unhealthy, and he has been called a cancer on more than one occasion. But he could probably be had for under $2 million a year, and if the Triumvirate approves I would go for it. Bonzi is big and multifaceted. He could be a potential bargain.
