Boston Celtics Preparing to Make a Multi-Player Trade?


The obvious suspicion is that the Boston Celtics are pushing to land DeMarcus Cousins, this despite the Sacramento Kings’ quite understandable reluctance to part ways with their young center. Boston is reportedly setting itself up to make a blockbuster trade. Per CSNNE: “Two league sources contacted on Sunday said that the Celtics will look to bolster their roster via a multi-player trade. And now that the C’s are starting to play better, the C’s will have more attractive trading pieces to work with. While it’s unlikely the Celtics will look to move any member of their big Three – Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett – league sources confirmed that there’s ‘growing’ interest in Courtney Lee who might become more expendable with the return of Avery Bradley. Brandon Bass is another possible Celtic on the move, one league source said. ‘But it’s not like the Celtics are shopping those guys,’ the second source said. ‘They have some good players who haven’t played as well I think as those players would want or what the Celtics expected.’”

    it will be interesting to see if they are willing to give up Bradley in order to land a big name

  • Nick

    DeMarcus Cousins meets KG

  • Redd

    …LOL Lee, Bradley for DMC? Kings deserve to just leave the NBA.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Gilbert/100001749589586 Mike Gilbert

    they should trade Doc Rivers for Cousins and have KG be player coach

    if the Kings do this, and add more guards to their roster, they deserve to be relocated to Seattle. Just based on that one decision.

  • Redd

    Agreed, hope they don’t go to that Beach place or whatever, I get a feeling that place is for rich people.

  • dannyb

    Jason Terry, get ready to go to tattoo removal

  • Ben Ireland

    I don’t think it’ll happen… But if Cousins was put in KG camp, the man could be a HOF. He’s that talented, and KG’s that good.

  • JML-G

    Venice Beach >>> Seattle.. yall need to get over the fact that Supersonics isnt coming back (and i loved that franchise back in the day)

  • patrick

    I say get Cousins,,and CDR from the Dleague now that the dumb@ss mavs let him go

  • patrick

    trade sullinger and fab melo for dermarcus cousins maybe,,,or sullinger or fab melo along with avery bradley…seems like a fair deal to me

  • Redd

    That’s on you, but I’d take Seattle any day.

  • roscoe

    were you thinking when you said that?

  • roscoe

    i think there is a cba rule that will not allow Cessna to be traded this early in the season, but that would be ironically funny.

  • Caboose

    No it doesn’t.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Seattle is going to get a team before Venice. Seattle is probably the next city to get a team. They just have to build the arena.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    he was eligible to be traded on Dec. 18th

  • theDankerNuggets

    in no universe are the Celtics gonna get DMC for any deal with Courtney Lee and Brandon Bass being the key pieces

  • http://twitter.com/bjollz Björn Atli Davíðsson

    KG wouldn’t know how to rest himself in game mode. He’d probably die on the court by the all star break.

  • Redd

    ..

  • Redd

    Didn’t they get the funding?

  • http://twitter.com/bjollz Björn Atli Davíðsson

    the only asset the Celtics have that’s big enough is Rondo. And I think he’s only as good as he is on the Celtics. I don’t think any GM wants a very upset post-trade Rondo on his squad. He can probably kill a locker room just as bad as Cousins.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    they agreed to the framework last i heard. like $440M from city revenues or something like that, yeah.

  • Max

    NO

  • Seth

    Venice Pelicans

  • Seth

    February 1, 2008 – Pau Gasol traded to the Lakers for Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton, Aaron McKie, and Marc Gasol.

  • paul

    No, D is just gonna bring issues to the celtics even though we could use him if he performs like right now without winning

  • gogreenorwastetime

    Oh god please make it happen even though it would be a stupid move for the kings but they are the kings so pleaaaase make boston the truth on ron-dmc!

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Sanchez

    oh nooo lol

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Sanchez

    yep

  • theDankerNuggets

    have you seen Marc Gasol play lately

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Gilbert/100001749589586 Mike Gilbert

    i was thinking it was pretty funny

  • Mike From Spain

    at the time Marc Gasol did not have any NBA minutes…

  • https://twitter.com/jasontichenor Mr. Wet

    I don’t think the celtics have the pieces to do it without a third team. I think they might be able to put together enough talent,but not the talent the kings need/want.

  • Seth

    Marc was a young pup without a big role back then. Have you seen the NBA in 2008?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Gilbert/100001749589586 Mike Gilbert

    How has the Boston weather treated you this winter?

  • theDankerNuggets

    haha good one. but you are not arguing that it turned out to be a bad move for the Grizzlies are you? because obviously they made that move based on his potential and it worked out for them. Neither Bass nor Lee have much potential so unless they are packaged with a “young pup” who has a lot of potential then there is no way the Kings would make that trade

  • theDankerNuggets

    he sure is getting a lot of minutes these days… which is my point

  • CV43

    lol noice but JET is awesome!

  • Caboose

  • RunNGun

    No Rondo, Pierce, Bradley, or Garnett in a trade? LOL Good luck, Ainge. You’re gonna need.

  • roscoe

    joking is not allowed! jk MG.

  • roscoe

    like venice italy? whoa…

  • roscoe

    saying that the framework for a real estate development project is completed with any City is worthless… don’t count on it until the dirt is moving and workers are working.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Not if you take framework for what it actually means….

  • Seth

    Nah, I know it obviously panned out pretty well for them. Marc is having a great career. Wasn’t he kind of a throw-in though? I don’t remember him being the centerpiece.

  • theDankerNuggets

    yeah im not sure about that, but I think Memphis must have been pretty high on him, since like we have both said none of those other players amounted to much

  • Mike From Spain

    About that first trade – Jared Sullinger sure has lots of upside and Jason Terry is some upgrade over Ridnour, but IMO the second best player in the whole trade is Pek. Size, steady scoring, puts oppossing bigs into foul trouble, defense which is just below average.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Donte-Machiavelli-Hudson/100000723951750 Donte Machiavelli Hudson

    If they finish this home stand 5-0, it won’t happen ,,, avery’s return made a big difference in this squad. Jg, ab, rr,pp,jt,kg, & sully are untouchable in my eyes

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Donte-Machiavelli-Hudson/100000723951750 Donte Machiavelli Hudson

    He wasnt even that, he was an unknown after thought for doing the deal. I’m old as durty, i’ll confirm it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Donte-Machiavelli-Hudson/100000723951750 Donte Machiavelli Hudson

    Hopefully since they moving to seattle, HE’S on the rack labeled “fire sale”

  • German Solano

    maybe in the marvel universe….i wouldnt even trade dmc for garnett hes a young center with tons of raw talent….with the right coach he could be top 3 center

  • http://www.facebook.com/bob.merrihew Bob Merrihew

    The trade I want is Chris Bosh to the Kings for DMC and Jason Thompson. The Heat are getting crushed inside this year. As for the C’s, they don’t have good pieces to move. They got old and didn’t get star talent to groom for Pierce and KG. Pierce is one of my favorite players, but 37 is a lot of hardwood miles.

  • http://twitter.com/Celtic4Life11 DJ Chalk

    Ainge trade C.Lee & 1st round pick to Milwaukee for M.Ellis. Trade Bass and 2nd round pick to Sacramento for D.Cousins or to ATL Hawks for J.Smith cuz KG needs help in the paint.
