A disclaimer comes with the trade rumor I’m about to share with you: It doesn’t seem to make much sense.
I don’t know how the Celtics would ever part with Kendrick Perkins, a young, talented, inexpensive center, unless they were absolutely blown away by a deal. And the following package doesn’t blow me away. Not by any means. (Via HoopsWorld)
The rumor out of Dallas was that Boston has discussed a deal with Golden State that would send Ray Allen, Kendrick Perkins, and J.R. Giddens to the Warriors for Monta Ellis and Andris Biedrins.
The trade is cap friendly and it was just one of the rumors floating around this past weekend. It was reported that Boston has also reached out to Sacramento and Philadelphia as they continue to shop Allen for younger talent.
As always, everything about rumor season tends to be a lie, until the i’s are dotted on the final deal. If this rumor represents serious talks, I’d be really, really surprised if it went through.
Unless Danny Ainge became Isiah Thomas overnight.
