Default AI to Boston?

From the Chicago Tribune:

Quote:
But the big deal floating around is Iverson to the Boston Celtics, Boozer to the 76ers and Szczerbiak to the Utah Jazz. Of course, more parts have to be included, though I couldn't see the 76ers dealing Iverson within their division, even if divisions are almost meaningless. Perhaps they cannot find a Western Conference trading partner.

I call BS on this one, but it would make my decade to have AI in Celtic green next year.

EDIT: It seems (after seeing that Jeff has updated the rumors page ) that the Boston Globe and the Philadelphia Daily News have also printed articles regarding an AI to Boston rumor. I guess we'll have to wait and see if they're simply referring to Sam Smith's article or if this rumor actually has legs.

As long as Big Al and G^2 aren't involved, go for it.

Just a BS runor though.

Yup, I completely agree. And I could be wrong here, but isn't Sam Smith considered one of the biggest BS rumor reporters?

You would trade PP for AI?
The celtics would win the same games, why do it?

I think Pierce not being involved in this "rumor" is a given because Wally would be the center piece for Utah.

Then I can't see it happening. The sixers can get more than Boozer

Right.

I wonder how AI would adjust to being 2nd for the first time?

They definitely can get more than Boozer, and it's odd to think that they would have that big of an interest in Boozer to begin with. But with that whole "more parts have to be included" line it leaves the door open for the Celtics to include pick #7 and/or some of the young guys as well.

Even with PP and AI, the celtics wouldn't get far in the playoffs if Jefferson and Perkins keep playing like last year. They need more production from them.

The C's should give Philly both their #1's in next year's draft. The C's dont need any more draft picks. That should seal it.

That's a huge "if" though. Both Al and Perk are working with Clifford Ray this offseason and Al apparently is finally getting himself in shape and also finally has some fire in him because he said recently that he feels he has to prove himself after what happened last year. Al has always had talent but being in shape and motivation were the two things Al lacked, before now. Even if you extend both of their numbers to about 30mpg their production would be pretty good, but combined with the work they're doing over the summer I'm not worried about them at all.

Why would the Sixers move AI for Boozer. They already have a PF who can't defend with a bloated contract. Why would they want another in exchange for their franchise player? At least Webber comes off the books sooner.

Doesnt look true. King wont trade Iverson to a division rival and i also dont see AI in a Celtics uniform.
