At 34-year-old, former Boston Celtics big man Kendrick Perkins believes that he still has a little bit left in the tank. So much so, that he recently reached out to Celtics GM Danny Ainge, saying that he's only one call away.

“I did reach out to (Celtics president of basketball operations) Danny (Ainge),” Perkins said, via David Richard of USA Today Sports. “I told him, ‘I’m here if you need me.’ He said, ‘You know what, Perk? I would love for you to end your career here.’ And I was like, ‘OK, keep me in mind.'”

The last we saw of Perkins in the league was last season when he suited up for the Cleveland Cavaliers for a grand total of one game. Last summer, though, the 6-foot-10 center was unable to sign with any NBA team, and has since been looking for one final shot in the league before he finally hangs up his boots.

Well, it looks as though the Celtics might just be open to giving Perkins the chance he is hoping for. According to Perkins, Ainge was receptive to the idea of him making a comeback to the team that he helped win a championship back in 2008. Although, there was nothing definitive to how the conversation went between the two.

Should the Celtics decide to acquire the services of Perkins, it would likely be a move dictated more by sentiment as opposed to need. We just don't see how Perk would fit in with the C's current roster, so unfortunately, this might just be a case of wishful thinking for the veteran.
