In writing my post about possible Center targets recently I came across some players that caused me to pause and say "hmm, wouldn't that be an interesting trade". So my premise here is not taking into account the "fit" of the player for what the Celtics currently have (essentially in asset collection mode) and only taking into account whether it improves the current assets on the team, would you say no to this deal?
Without further ado, let's play some who says no!
Why the Celtics do it:
They need a center. Even if he is loony toons.Why the Nuggets do it:
JaVale McGee is loony toons. They have Mozgov, Faried and JJ Hickson who are all pretty good bigs. And JaVale McGee is loony toons.Why the Celtics don't do it.
JaVale McGee is loony toons.Why the Nuggets don't do it:
They already have a SF who only shows up sometimes. The deal would save them money, but not much and nothing that they'd be able to turn around and use for a player.
