The Celtics have considered bringing in free agent Erick Dampier "for a look," according to the Boston Globe.

Dampier looked woefully out of shape last season with the Hawks, so we can't imagine he'd be of much value to the Celtics. However, he is a big body who could grab a few rebounds, so perhaps that's why the C's are sniffing around him.

Hawks signed C Erick Dampier to a 10-day contract.

Dampier said in June that he "definitely" wasn't retiring, but it's taken until February for interest to heat up in his services. The veteran will serve as depth at the end of the bench and not much more than that.

Erick Dampier is a "possibility" to be signed by the Hawks.

Atlanta is looking to add another center in the next "couple days," and beat writer Michael Cunningham threw out Dampier's name as one possibility. No matter who the team signs, it's highly unlikely that person will accrue any sort of fantasy value.

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports that the Celtics had an interest in Erick Dampier during free agency.

It's possible the team revisits Dampier with a real size problem inside, but the team will likely wait a little longer to make a decision. With just Jermaine O'Neal, Chris Wilcox, Brandon Bass and rookie Greg Stiemsma clogging the lane, the Celtics could definitely use some more help down low.
