Weighing In On The Celtics Blockbuster Deal

I Believe The Kids Are Our Future...

I am in like, not love with the deal. Wally Szczerbiak is owed $37.5 million over the next 3 seasons after this year, as well as a trade kicker (still looking for the amount), so he is likely here to stay. The Candi Man's deal is off the books after this season (around $6 mill), and it allows the C's to unload 4 years and around $32 mill that Blount stood to make.From a pure financial standpoint, the Celtics save some guaranteed dough with this deal, but it doesn't seem to help them at all in terms of the cap for the next 3 seasons.

This, from McHale, is high comedy:"Through this trade, we've become a much more athletic team," Timberwolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale said in a statement. "With Ricky Davis, we've added one of the more talented shooting guards in the NBA -- both on the offensive and defensive ends of the court. Plus, with Davis and Trenton Hassell together on the court, we'll have a great defensive presence at the 2-3 positions."

Kevin's talking about defense and Ricky Avis...The most athletically gifted Rent-A-Player in the NBA? There actually is a "D" in Ricky Davis, but it definitely doesn't stand for defense, which is the reason why he's gone.Pretty good, short article on Szczerbiak's relationship with KG, and his lackluster D...Wally and KG.

To me, Wally should help them play team defense and is a good perimeter offensive player, which hopefully opens up more opportunity inside for the young guys in the future-this year is obviously a lost cause. They are still athletic enough with Jefferson, West, Allen, and in 2007, Gerald Green, so the move should benefit them in their quest to rebuild.
