With P.J. Brown insisting he will stay retired, Boston is bound to check in again with Robert Horry to see if Big Shot Rob has any interest, at 38, in joining the Celtics for a few months as their Brown-like bench sage in the frontcourt.
But we spoke to Horry on Friday and he reiterated what he told us in November: He doesn't expect to be back in the NBA this season, if ever.
Asked if he had heard recently from the Celtics, Horry said: "Not talking to anyone."
Back in November, he admitted that Celtics guard Sam Cassell -- his former Houston Rockets teammate -- had informed Horry that he was on Boston's radar. But Horry acknowledges that his history with Celtics executive director of basketball operations Danny Ainge, most notably Horry's infamous toss of a towel in Ainge's face when he was coaching in Phoenix, makes Boston a highly unlikely landing spot for the 6-foot-10 forward with seven rings.
"Sam said: 'I talked to Doc. He's thinking about bringing you in at the end of the season, so make sure you stay in shape,'" Horry told us six weeks ago. "I said, 'That's fine about Doc, but who is that GM in Boston?' I don't think that's gonna work out."

United we stand. Divided we fall.
