We were asked earlier today if we had heard any rumors or anything about potential moves the Celtics will make. Well, we just got a pretty wild one.
That comes to us via 17Banners.com… which says Phoenix radio station KTAR reported the rumor. I'd link to the KTAR website, but the rumor isn't on the website. Their hosts just said Boston initiated the conversation.
I think this is total BS… and I think it's a laughable proposal. It makes no sense player wise and it makes no sense salary-wise as Amare is on the books for $16.3 mil next year with a 2010 ETO… and Barbosa is due $6.6 and $7.1 over the next two years before his ETO. And this year's draft sucks… so why they'd want the 14th pick is beyond me.
It makes no sense… and is almost not worth reporting. But you wanted Celtics rumors… so you got Celtics rumors.
