Baskonia center Vincent Poirier addressed the rumours regarding the interest of the Boston Celtics to sign him.

Here is what the French center told L’Equipe:

“It’s nice to hear that such organizations are interested in me, but the rest of the season is my priority. As long as you’re contracted, you can’t engage into discussions.

I don’t prefer the EuroLeague or the NBA, but I’ll make my decision if two contracts are on the table. I won’t move to the NBA to find myself sitting on the bench.”

Poirier has been averaging 11.3 points and 8.1 rebounds in the EuroLeague this season as well as 8.6 points and 6.6 boards in the ACB.
