Free Agent Notes: White, Bell, Fisher

The trade deadline may have passed but that won't keep teams from finding an extra piece or two to help right the ship. Here's the latest news and rumors surrounding players who may be finding a new home in the coming days…
  • Doc Rivers says the Celtics are close to signing D.J. White to a deal in hopes of providing depth off the bench as a big man, writes Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston.com (on Twitter). The team would like to bring in one more frontcourt player to add to the roster. 
  • The Lakers remain hopeful the Jazz buy out the remainder of Raja Bell's contract so that the veteran can sign with Los Angeles, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld (via Twitter). The 36-year-old shooting guard would be counted on to provide strong defense and long-distance shooting.
  • Derek Fisher remains another option available for the Lakers as the long-time veteran is eager to return to the court, writes Kennedy (on Twitter). Fisher continues to work out regularly in Las Vegas and has stayed in close contact with Kobe Bryant since being traded to the Rockets last season.

Kenyon Martin was the absolute best option for this. It’s annoying that all along he wanted to just go to the Knicks, and didn’t really care about other teams interest. Eventually, he got his way, but he would have filled a bench PF/C role more than adequately. Very talented and smart player even at his age. I’m not saying he’s as good as he was in NJ, but he is more than capable to be a savy veteran presence on a team desperately in need of a big.
