Mannix doesn’t think Celtics can do much by trade deadline


Potential Trade Assets: Avery Bradley, Nate Robinson

With Marquis Daniels (neck) not expected to play anytime soon, the Celtics need a backup small forward. However, Boston has limited assets to deal, which eliminates a trade for Tayshaun Prince or Shane Battier, two defensive-minded wing players with expiring deals. The Celtics have had success luring bought-out (Sam Cassell, Stephon Marbury) or retired (P.J. Brown) players in the past, but the pickings are slim this year, unless Richard Hamilton can work out a deal with Detroit. Taking a flyer on a veteran D-League swingman (such as Joe Alexander) is another possibility.

Call me an ignorant Green Teamer, but I gotta believe Danny Ainge can do better than Joe Alexander.

    I could see trading for Grant Hill – even trading Avery.

  • Joe Alexander the pride of Kaohsiung, Taiwan, in fact in my opinion the greast player ever to come from there. Avery is a turd not even worthy of Gabe Pruitt fame or allen ray for that fact cut him, take the hit, and sign Joe, McCants or employee number 8 he can play the 3 right………….ok that last one was a joke. I’m a sucker for the shimmy. Q must be made of glass gets hurt more then Gerry Cooney.

    Unless someone takes Nate back, there is no deal that can be made. Blame Ainge for signing the broken O’Neals for 7.5 mil total.

    Why do we need a trade anyway? Let Quis recover and we should be fine when he gets back. No need to screw up the chemistry.

  • Mike Munger-Return to the Rafters

    No way we settle for Joe Alexander. And no way we trade a young defensive minded guard like Bradley unless we get something solid in return.

    Signing Quis and JO were mistakes because they are the definition of Not Durable. It doesn’t matter how talented you are if you normally miss half the season with injuries (last season was an aberration for JO who played in 70 games). As many (myslf inluded) have pointed out, we need a strong, defensive minded 3. Battier would be ideal. If Danny can’t pry Shane loose, Grant Hill might be a serviceable second choice.
    It’s too soon to make a judgement on Avery Bradley.
    Go Celtics!

    Blame Ainge for putting a team together that is 40-14 through tons of injuries that include more guys not named Oneal than are? Screw it, I say blame Red for bringing Ainge to Boston in the 80’s. That’ll fix it all.

    I love Marquise and if it were all possible for him to come back with no risks I’d wait for him. But that looks doubtful so we’ll probably have to trade his expiring deal or buy him out to bring in another back up for Pierce. Or combine him with Nate and a pick. Whatever it takes.
