The Celtics were already looking at
bringing in a player on a 10-day contract when they had nine in uniform,
but Al Jefferson's injury potentially leaves the club with eight
bodies. With the max 15 players under contract, the Celts need a waiver
from the league to sign a short-term player. Sources said late yesterday
that Kevinn Pinkney, a 6-foot-10 banger playing for Bakersfield in the
NBA Developmental League, should be on his way. The Nevada product is
averaging 18.7 points and 7.3 rebounds.
