Ok, so now we have Delonte, Telfair, Rondo, and Ray, does anyone else smell trade?

Seems like one has to happen. I really hope it's not Delonte, but he's the only one that can be moved right now of the PG group.

It sort of makes sense that it could be Delonte (I also really hope it's not him though) because he's defintiely the most polished player out of the group, and his name did seem to pop up right after the initial rumors of both Jefferson and Green being shipped out died down.

a trade could be commin up but Allen Ray doesnt fit in with the point gaurds cause he doesnt have the skills.. hes more of a 2 guard but can also a lil bit of point

definetly...i would prolly trade
Rondo and West if i was the celtics
telfair just like every other highschool player except Jonathan Bender will be an all-star in 2 or 3 yrs.
Ray is big time clutch so keep him

send Rondo and West to phoenix for James Jones and Eric Piatkowski
gives you depth and gives phx pg's just like they need.

Nope!
 
If this IS the Philly deal, the Delonte is all but gone..he's a Philly fan favorite from his St. Josephs days and it would make sense. Uh Oh! One.

But IF it's AI we're trading for, having a PG who's more of a combo guard wouldn't hurt us at all. AI is considered a SG and has played against bigger guards on both ends of the floor his entire career. That's actually part of the reason why I was hoping Green was thrown into any potential AI deal instead of Delonte because having AI (and Pierce) to drive through the lane and kick the ball back out to Delonte on the perimeter would be easy buckets all night. However, if Delonte would be the odd man out in any future trade, Allan Ray could fill in as a poor man's Delonte in the meantime. Ray's an excellent perimeter shooter as well, and is aslo more than capable of driving to the basket- something that Delonte lacks in his offensive game.

Before I get ahead of myself though, right now I'd say he was the 4th PG/3rd SG until any trade is made. Again, IF it is indeed AI that we trade for and Delonte is apart of that trade, I would definitely start Telfair (or Tony Allen depending on what position AI were to play) and have Ray and Rondo battle it out for the first back up PG spot.

Great to see Ray gets a shot in the league, even better that it's with the Celtics.

i thought dude was better than lowry from the villanova games i saw, he's got skills but it just depends whether he can make the transition from college ball to the nba
