Color me skeptical… but's out there.
While Boston Celtics boss Danny Ainge has said Rajon Rondo will not be traded, he is still actively seeking offers for members of the Big Three. The Celtics offered Paul Pierce to Portland — I'm not sure what they asked for in return — but the Blazers were not interested because of the two years and $32 million remaining on Pierce's contract.
First of all… this is Chris Broussard… so this entire thing could be wrong. To paraphrase Stan Van Gundy yesterday, these guys have a great job. They can be wrong 99% of the time and still have jobs.
Like most other deals, I'm not sure what would make sense in a Pierce-to-Portland trade. Let's make the leap of faith and say Broussard is right… the Celtics probably asked for a ridiculous deal. Still, I can't find anything that make sense.
About 16 hours to go until this BS ends for about a month or two.
