The Celtics are bringing former Heat long-range marksman Andre Dawkins to Boston this week and meet with him as they consider signing him to a 10-day contract, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.com (Twitter links). The rookie shooting guard joined Miami’s D-League team last week after the Heat released him from their NBA squad earlier this month, and his performance at this weekend’s D-League Showcase has the Celtics intrigued, according to Stein.
The undrafted Dawkins is shooting an eye-popping 53 for 104 from behind the three-point line in the D-League this season over 11 appearances. He was only 1 for 6 in limited action during four games with the Heat in regular season, though he shot well during the preseason and in summer league.
The Heat have expressed interest in re-signing the John Spencer client to a 10-day contract later this season, but it appears the Celtics have eyes on beating them to it. Boston has an open roster spot, and Tayshaun Prince‘s future with the Celtics appears up in the air.
