The late season Celtics trades produced a 2012 first round pick from the L.A. Clippers via Oklahoma, plus cash. Why the aging Celtics would need cash to equal out a deal which was already “future loaded”, is beyond me. Why not look for trades which will help now, when the existing window of opportunity is closing.
This year's result of that stupidity? The Celtics did no better against the Heat than the Philadelphia Seventy Sixers!
