Does A Sherrod Blakely ever stop grasping at the trade rumor straws that are out there? How many times does he have to be wrong before CSNNE cans his butt for being a horrible inside reporter?

I know right? all he does is tweet 47 possible trade rumors about the Celtics a day, most of which are just baseless commonsense tweets, and when he actually hits one he acts like he had some amazing info.


  Twitter and trade rumors are a match made in hell. Someone tweets a rumor (no matter how flimsy) or even a proposal as opposed to a rumor, a ton of other people tweet what they read on twitter, and that rumor's seen as a near fact because it ends up on so many different websites.

Mayo for Bradley.

No thank you.

I would do it in a millisecond.

An undersized SG who's ideal as a sixth man for a 22 year old who is probably the best defender at the guard position in the league?

Even if you think it's a wash, consider that the Cs would have to pay Mayo BIG BUCKS after this season to keep him.

Not worth it.

Bradley's shorter than Mayo.  Mayo's a better player than Bradley right now.

Not saying I'd do the trade, but man, Bradley is really overrated on this board.

Again, even if Mayo is a better / more valuable player than Bradley right now -- the Celtics would have to pay him a TON of money (much more than he's worth) to keep him around after this season.

I think you are exagerating the amount the celtics would have to pay Mayo. He's not going to get a max deal. More along the lines of Jeff Green money imo. Bradley will also demand good money when his deal runs out. It's a matter of who you prefer to pay.

I have no interest in paying Mayo 36 million over 4 years.  In truth, he'll probably get closer to 4/40 or 4/45.

Bradley, unless he has a breakout year scoring 15+ pts a game, will likely make closer to 4/20 to 4/30.  Defensive specialists don't get paid big bucks.  But I'd still rather have Bradley on my team than Mayo.

Bradley also is on a nice rookie contract for another couple of seasons.

Easily my least favorite Celtics "insider"

Edit: here, I'm gonna play a game called being sherrod.


"Sources tell me Celtics interested in signing LBJ when his contract is up"

"If the Price was right, Dainge very interested in acquiring Blake Griffen."

"Just talked to a High Placed Celtics Source, Very interested in adding a big man."

"Just had a fruit smoothy with my High Placed Celtics source. I can confirm they are very interested in acquiring Kevin Durant if the opportunity arises."

  I think that Bradley's fairly comparable to Tony Allen, not quite the defender but a better offensive player (IMO). TA was starting over Mayo and getting as many minutes as Mayo at the sg spot, I don't think that speaks to Mayo being significantly better than Bradley.
