(Newser) – The newly star-studded Boston Celtics might not be done wheeling and dealing quite yet. They've been in touch with retired Pacer Reggie Miller in an attempt to lure him out of retirement, and—according to GM and former on-court rival Danny Ainge—Miller is considering it. "Reggie and I have talked and, yes,  we plan to have further conversations," said Ainge.

Miller, who turns 42 this month, is a five-time All-Star and probable Hall of Famer. He retired in 2005 and is currently working the booth at TNT, a position he says he enjoys.  But rumor has it that the allure of a championship ring, which eluded him during his 18-year-career, might be enough to grab him back.
