With the Boston Celtics in need of some immediate help, the trade and signing possibilities seem endless. One such rumor would be enticing a player out of retirement. In Keyon Dooling's case, that is a very real possibility.
According to Jessica Camerato of CSN Boston, Dooling would be willing to come out of retirement to play for the Celtics. He began to bump up his workout routine yesterday knowing the Celtics may come knocking.
"I'm definitely considering," Dooling told CSNNE.com Tuesday evening. "I've upped my exercise starting today and if Doc (Rivers) gives me the word I will be ready."
Dooling retired from the NBA after last season, but he is familiar with the Celtics and could certainly help them. Dooling is 32 years old and likely still has some basketball left in him. He played in the NBA for 12 seasons.
In his career, Dooling averaged 7.0 points and 2.2 assists per game in 19.5 minutes per game. The guard would definitely help the Celtics continue playing without Rajon Rondo, but he obviously wouldn't replace what Rondo had to offer on the court. Dooling is a serviceable NBA guard worth consideration by the Celtics.
