According to Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida, Celtics are one of six teams pursuing guard John Lucas III. Miami, Chicago, Minnesota, Washington and Toronto are all looking into signing Lucas as well as Boston.
Chicago’s recent signing of Kirk Hinrich may have a lot to do with Lucas looking elsewhere to play. He wouldn’t be a big upgrade from Dooling if the Celtics ultimately sign him. Lucas is a solid three point shooter like Dooling and a better ball handler than Keyon.
Lucas averaged eight points last season for the Bulls and shot 34 percent from behind the arc.
