Here's one that I don't totally get (aside from Danny's penchant for going for guys with big talent and big issues).
In addition to Dallas & Lakers, Boston also showing interest in Lance Stephenson, source said— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 7, 2014
I guess that would have to be a sign and trade. I don't know what to think of that but I'm not excited about stocking up on more crazy.
Celtics Are Reportedly Interested in Lance Stephenson - Celtics Blog - Boston.com
Boston does not currently have the salary cap space to offer Stephenson more than the midlevel exception ($5.3 million) but the team does have the ability to acquire him via a sign-and-trade if the two sides agree to terms. Boston has a $10.3 million trade exception which allows them to absorb the salary that Stephenson would command (around $10 million/year) without having to send back any salary in a sign-and-trade if they were to strike a deal with Indiana.
Hey, how about getting Stephenson to agree to a sign-and-trade to the Wolves as part of a Kevin Love trade?
Anyway, here's a different kind of rumor. It sounds like our days with Humphries might be coming to a close.
#celtics appear to be taking themselves out of the Kris Humphries market, #hornets and #wizards are leaders, according to NBA source— gary washburn (@GwashburnGlobe) July 7, 2014
In his early days with the Celtics, everyone wanted him out of town. Then he became pretty well respected among fans. Apparently he's earned some respect around the league as well.
I have no idea where this offseason is heading. None.
