League GM: "There are some dumb teams out there"

New, comments

So you're saying there's a chance...

No rumors in this post, but I had to share this quote via the Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach.

Deadline trade by Celtics wouldn’t surprise other GMs - Sports - The Boston Globe

"They’re skilled players that can help teams in the playoffs, veteran players that know what it takes," said one of the general managers, "so I think there’s value there."

Said another GM, "In the right situation, maybe, but I don’t think they have that much value, to be honest. But there are some dumb teams out there, or some teams that don’t think long-term, so [the Celtics] might get what they want from a desperate team. "I think if you’re a smart team, you’re not going to give up a good asset for a guy you know is going to be there for just 30 games."

Can't fault Danny Ainge for asking for a high price because you never know if someone's going to pay it.  We'll find out more at the deadline.  In fact, we might not find out until then.

"They do have players that other teams are interested in, but they've always done a really good job of not showing their cards," the GM said. "Or, just showing the cards they want to show."
