doesn't fit the direction of the team. He's more effective in the
half-court game, but there will be a push to increase the tempo next
season to take advantage of the talents of the younger players. With
three seasons left on the extension he signed last season, it will be
tough to move him, but not impossible. An
kicking the tires for the past year. The Pistons may have to take a bad
contract in return.
I hope there is ZERO truth to the Celtics interest in Rip Hamilton. He's a 32-year old shooting guard in obvious decline with a large contract ($37 million over the next 3 years). I'd rather they resign Ray Allen for three years.
And there is no one on the Celtics roster who could complete the salary match. Unless Danny Ainge could bring in a third team and dump Rasheed Wallace. Even then, I'm not sure I want three years of Rip.
