With all the trade rumors cirlcling abound, I thought I would throw in my two cents. If you're gonna make a trade, might as well make it a doosy, right? I'm talking future HOF players, all-star players, draft picks, and multiple teams. So, you're wondering, what trade could top all trades but still be realalistic. Here's what I'm proposing. A three team trade involving the Celtics, Suns, and Grizzlies.
Here's the meat and potatoes of the deal:
Amare Stoudemire, Jason Richardson from Suns
Ray Allen from Celtics
#2 pick in 2009 draft from Grizzlies
#14 pick in 2009 draft from Suns
Thus, the Celtics 2009-2010 starting line-up: Stoudemire, Garnett, Pierce, Richardson, Rondo. That's an almost all-star starting five. Plus, the Celtics would still have the full MLE, LLE, and right to retain BBD if they so choose.
