Is Redd worth the risk?

With the lockout making Celtics news virtually nonexistant, there's lots of time to speculate. So let's speculate a little about Michael Redd. Slam quoted a reporter from the Milwaukee Journal-Times as saying that Redd would be playing for one of "the Eastern Conference's title contenders."  

Now the first thing that comes to mind with Redd is obviously injuries. He has played 50 games or less 5 out of his 11-years in the NBA. Over the last two seasons, Redd has played in a total of 28 games. He missed pretty much all of last year while recovering from a torn MCL & ACL in his left knee. That injury was suffered in January of 2009. He then reinjured that same knee almost a year to the day later in 2010.

So yes-Redd has a significant history of major injuries, and to compound things, the Celtics are already chock-full o' over 30 guys. However, at 31, Redd isn't exactly a senior-citizen. So what do the readers think? If the price is right, do we go after Michael Redd? If guys like Marquis Daniels don't end up back in green, is Redd the type of guy who can successfully provide a scoring punch while Ray and Paul are on the bench? Now of course all of this is meaningless if this little lockout situation isn't rectified, but hey-let's pretend for a while- shall we….??
