Pierce: Why Didn’t Cavs Play Hollins?
Ryan Hollins is coming to the Celtic highly recommended by Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Pierce last night was talking about what the 7-foot center can bring to the club.
But even the captain has questions based on the fact this will be Hollins’ fifth NBA team in his sixth season.
“We’ve got to wait and see,” said Pierce, who played in pickup games with Hollins and Garnett during the lockout. “I guess you kind of wonder why he didn’t play a lot in Cleveland.
“I saw a lot of potential. He works hard, and he’s got a lot of lift. You just wonder why he didn’t get an opportunity out there — especially on a team that’s struggling.”
