Default Celtics Rumor

Latest rumor has Gasol getting traded to the Celts for Al Jefferson,
G. Green & Theo Ratliff. I think this has more appeal than any potential
Bulls trade. Deng is a good young talent but he plays small forward. The
Grizz already have Mike Miller and Rudy Gay that play that position.
G. Green plays the 2 and has great potential. Jefferson is a very decent
replacement for Gasol. He may not put up the same numbers but he is
reliable and doesn't have a huge contract. If the Celts really have offered this for Gasol than West is crazy if he doesn't accept. The problem with
West is that he waits too long to make a trade. He knew Gasol wanted out
a year ago and wasn't happy here and could have traded him after the playoffs to Chicago with Battier for Gordon AND Deng. Griz really want Gordon more than Deng anyway. Now Gordon is their star player and is untouchable so the opportunity was lost. Green is a year away from being a star. If West waits until next year than he will have lost him too.

I have always thought west to be a selfish gm.He always has to come away way on top.He will always take the safe play instead of taking a risk.This is why every draft class besides the last two which warrik fell in our lap,HAVE SUCKED.

DEFINITELY...trading for Gay was the only risk he has taken...he seems like he has lost his eye for potential talent...we had the 3rd overall pick 4 years ago and he picked drew gooden..he seems like he keeps trying to find the next vlade divac instead of a really good player...im making a prediction on here...gasol will get traded next week! Book it!

Our Grizzlies organitation sucks!!!
No matter we are un Vancouver or Memphis. Suck anyway!!
And we will lose our best player in Grizzlies history, and it is because the Grizzlies were unable to put decent talent around, find a center or make it a legit conteder and hav e good coaches. Too bad!!!!!!

Without Gasol we will come back to the mediocrity. I hope for the future of Oden won't come to Memphis!!

Hopefully the team will get sold to some local pockets and the uncertainty
will settle down. My prediction is Gasol is getting traded by the end of the week. I hope it is with Boston. Chicago doesn't want to give up any comparable talent. Maybe Golden State will make an offer too.
Oden would be great but if I had the number 1 pick I would take Durant.

I just don't see what Boston can put together to get Gasol.

Jefferson and Green and Perkins in a package for Gasol, Warrick & Dahntay J would work. Griz need a good reliable rebounder who can score and an athletic 2 guard in Green. This would help both teams in major ways.

He needs to unload him now while he has significant value. Last night didn't
help getting only 11 pts and outplayed by tyson chandler. Bet the Bulls wish they had chandler back now! Deng is playing like a beast now so there is no
way Chicago will trade him unless Jerry throws in a few of the Griz dance squad too.

Nets cheat Raptors with Carter. But sorry guys, it won't happen again with Gasol.

If Nets want Pau better offer Kidd and a draft pick! We don't want Vince Carter, no Wright, no Adams, no Collins, no Cliffy , no no no .

Or N.Krstic, Marcus Williams, A. Wrigh and first round pick!! Gasol could offer D. Jones or Atkins in the deal.
