The rumored blockbuster trade between Washington and the Boston Celtics is in fact just that – a rumor.
league sources contacted this morning shot down the potential trade
first reported by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
Multiple league sources on Friday said the two sides have had no discussions about this trade, or any trade for that matter.
It's no secret that the Cleveland Cavaliers have coveted Jamison for quite some time.
league source indicated that this story was in all likelihood planted
by someone looking for the Cavs to intensify their efforts at landing
the 6-foot-9 forward. This would solidify their efforts towards an NBA
title, in addition to pleasing LeBron James who as we know, can bolt
from Cleveland this summer when he becomes a free agent.
As for Butler, the Dallas Mavericks are the team that he's most likely to be dealt to prior to the Feb. 18 trading deadline.
Wouldn't that suck if this story was "planted" by the Wizards in order to get a better offer from the Cavaliers?
Keep this in mind, Blakely is the guy who broke the Monta Ellis trade rumor which was promptly crapped on by nearly every basketball reporter in the country.
