We'll miss you Beast.
Guess the undefeated starting five comment Doc made last June had no meaning after all...
UPDATE #1 - From Woj's Twitter:
We should all assume something else is going down, as that seems like a total fire sale.
gwashburn14: According to a source, the Celtics will also get the Clippers 2012 first-round pick out of the deal #celtics
Maybe Danny is stocking up for a run at a Dwight Howard sign and trade in 2012 (really digging for a bright side here).
Update #3 Blakely reporting maybe Murphy + mystery wing will fill the Erds / Luke roster spots.
SherrodbCSN: League source tells me that the #Celtics looking to add Troy Murphy and possibly another wing player.
KBerg_CBS: Celtics have agreed to send Marquis Daniels to Sacramento for cash, source says.
Update #5: In a unsurprising tweet whose sentiment is shared by many Celtics fans, Woj is reporting:
WojYahooNBA: As you'd expect, Celtics vets are livid over trade of Kendrick Perkins, sources say. He's the tough guy, enforcer. But BOS can't pay him.
Update #6: Is Danny feeling a need for Sheed? A. Sherrod Blakely thinks it's possible:
Boston may also bring back Rasheed Wallace, who has remained in the metro Boston area after retiring following Boston's Game Seven loss to the Lakers in last year's NBA Finals.
Although he told CSNNE.com this past summer that his NBA career was a "wrap like Christmas," sources have indicated recently that Wallace might have a change of heart if the C's had a roster spot become available.
... but David Aldridge disagrees:
daldridgetnt: Told Cs will NOT be re-signing Sheed. Gotta be Murphy after buyout.
