Celtics woo versatile
Carr from Pistons
BOSTON (UPI)-The Boston Celtics, completing another step in what
they hope will be a successful rebuilding process, yesterday signed free-
agent forward M.L. Carr to a multi-year contract.
Carr, who averaged a personal high 18.7 points a game last season for
Detroit, becomes the third Piston to sign with another club through the free
agent route. Kevin Porter signed with Washington and Ben Poqgette went to
"This is like a dream come true for me," said Carr, at 6-foot-6 con-
sidered one of basketball's premier small forwards. "I wanted to be a Celtic
all along. And I wanted to be on a championship team. I promise there will
be a championship again in Boston and it will be in my years here."
Carr had been actively pursued by the New York Knicks, the San An-
tonio Spurs, the Indiana Pacers as well as the Pistons and Celtics.
The Pistons will be entitled to compensation and coach Dick Vitale said
he would like Bob McAdoo. But Boston General Manager Red Auerbach said
he wasn't going to commit himself to any names.
"I haven't even talked to him (Vitale) yet. It's what we're going to give
