Rumor: Celtics May Make Run at Tyreke Evans

Personally, I like Evans as I think he's a great shooter. With how inconsistent Terry, Lee and Green have been, this wouldn't be a bad move

I would be ecstatic if we get Evans. I just don't see it happening though.

FYI: this is Chad Ford speculation, not a rumor.

interesting though

Tyreke is - and has been throughout his career - a pretty subpar shooter. What he does do though, is get to the rim and create his own shots.

I do wonder - how much of this is based on how badly Danny wanted Tyreke before the 09 draft versus any current interest.

He's a terrible shooter. He's lazy on defense. If he does come, he won't get a chance to shine because Rondo will have the ball in his hands more often than not. Evans is clueless when it comes to playing off the ball.

Ford reading the Celtics boards I guess. Tyreke makes sense if we didn't already have rondo. Two ball dominant players can co-exist if one them can shoot, and in this case neither one can.

I would do that. You need someone else to match salaries I believe.

Much rather go after Josh Smith, Varajeo or Gortat .

Why do we need another 2 guard? I think Bradley has the potential to be just as good as Evans on offense and is a superior defender .

The idea is if we give up Bradley, it is going to be for a big man. Trading him for another 2 guard who isn't a huge improvement, if one at all , makes no sense to me .

Not a big fan of tyreke. Don't think he can play with Rondo and Pierce in doc's system,  but maybe if they could somehow get cousins(I know sac town thinks he is a star) too it may be worth talking on Salmons bad contract.

Tyreke is due for a huge payday. Avery has another year on cost-effective rookie deal. Keep that in mind.
