After shipping three big men out of Boston, it was clear the Celtics were looking to re-stock their roster with buyout players, and former Celtic Leon Powe was rumored to be on the team's radar.

According to TNT reporter David Aldridge, however, the C's are no longer in talks with Powe since signing center/forward Troy Murphy from the Golden State Warriors.

The Celtics are now reportedly looking for a wing player to fill their other roster spot, and have interest in Corey Brewer and Kelenna Azubuike, ESPN's Marc Stein reports.

Though he no longer has interest from the Celtics, Powe has other suitors throughout the league, including the Miami Heat, Aldridge reports. The Knicks, Grizzlies and Hornets have also expressed interest in the power forward.
