Pacers get: Jermaine O'Neal, trade exeption, 25
Celtics get: Posey, Rush
Jermaine has said he wants to retire as a Pacer. This gives him the chance to and he isnt as useless as Posey.
Posey was a fan favorite in Boston so why not bring him back for likely their last real championship run before they really start declining. Rush would be valubale on a contender and they are trying to trade the #25 pick. Pacers also save a small portion of salary.
I don't think the Celts are gonna bring in 10mil in salary and give up 6.2mil.
Sorry, can't see that happening. Good for the Pacerrs tho.
I don't see salary being a big issue with the Celtics especially when they have the option to let it all expire after next season anyway.
At 71mil and they may want to retain Jeff Green for another 6mil = 77mil and only having 7 players counting Green to show for it. I just don't see that trade in their interest.
I could see Celts wanting a trade after free agency starts:
Pacers Get: JO and 2012 2nd rnd pick
Celts Get: Nothing
