@mark37_14: is there any truth to a 3-way trade with #celtics lakers and kings i saw the trade rumor on a fan page.” -> #dontbelievedahype

@SherrodbCSN twitter

what was the rumor?

Sounded a little whacked to me but:

"The Lakers, Celtics, and Kings are reportedly very close to a trade that would send Francisco Garcia and Demarcus Cousins to the Boston Celtics. Marcus Thorton, Chuck Hayes,Thomas Robinson,and Aaron Brooks to the Los Angeles Lakers. Pau Gasol, Avery Bradley, Jason Terry,Jared Sullinger, and two future first round picks from the Celtics to the Sacramento Kings.**The only reason the deal has not happened yet is because the Lakers are being reluctant to accept the offer."

Started yesterday as very unsubstantiated and implausible rumor.

Hate to say good-bye to Sully and Bradley. Unlikely.

Doesn't work on the trade machine.

Nothing is imminent, but the Boston Celtics are definitely a team to keep an eye on as the trade deadline approaches.

If a trade happens, I bet its something smaller scale...like  for someone like Dalembert

It works when you account for the money saved from waiving Joseph/Varnado.

From @SherrodbCSN : "league sources confirmed that there's "growing" interest in Courtney Lee"

Lee and Sully for Gortat?
Its a silly question don't know all about trades/salary and all that but is there a certain date trades have to be made or can they happen anytime?

You can trade players anytime before the deadline Feb 21st. You can't sign a player and trade him right off that's why we can't trade Bass or Green until the 15th.

I think...

I could see the Celtics being involved in a blockbuster as a third team.  For example, there's a rumor of a possibly Varejao-to-Minny trade, but that the Cleveland doesn't want Derrick Williams.  I am pessimistic about Boston's ability to offer enough to get Varejao, but perhaps Ainge can nab that unwanted mid-level player in a big deal by offering up something like Lee and a first-rounder.  Not for Williams, though.  I am just using him as an example of an opening.

If you could flip Lee for a center worth more than the minimum but paid less than the MLE and a wing who is a downgrade on Lee as a bench guard but probably a defensive upgrade on Lee as a small forward against bigger players, would you do it?

Derrick Williams and Jeff Green on the same team?

Doesn't non-guaranteed contracts become guaranteed in couple of days? Celtics appear to be clearing roster spots for future signings who can help the team than keep dead weight at the end of the bench. I wouldn't rule out a trade though. But its way too early to be speculating however.
