    Default Tinsley and Murphy to Boston

    For Ratliff, Telfair, and a Gerald Green.

    Assuming we trade JO to LA, we'll be in bad shape, contract-wise. Our two highest-paid players (Murph and Dun) won't be starters. This would clear two bad contracts, and we'd cut Ratliff and Telfair before they got here.

    Boston gets two starters at need positions for one backup swingman. The contracts wouldn't actually hurt them, because they're in pretty good shape financially.

    Thoughts?

    I'm kinda startin to sour on Green. He's looking like he's going to be one of those "just wait until next season guys." I like Telfair's quickness, but it's starting to look like he might have problems staying away from trouble. Out point guard situation would be a mess. Would you be banking on Mccleod; possibly Andre Owens? Wouldn't be very optomistic about that. I actually like Tinsley. I think a good indicator of his future here will be how he handles playing in a more uptempo, free flowing offense.

    I don't like Telfair at all. I agree that we'd need to go after another PG or two if we did this. J.Jack would be my #1 option.

    it would take a minor miracle to get boston to assume both murphy and tinsley's contracts. they're looking at an al jefferson extension next season, with the max contracts of pierce and allen already on the books.

    gerald green's stock has really fallen. his summer league showing is horrific - i guess i've soured on him too. but that's not to say i won't do this deal. i still would, then try to pawn green and telfair off to whoever would give us a serviceable point in return.

    You guys do understand that the Celtics released Telfair aorund 5 months ago? I thought it was old news. He was in someone trouble or something, on epsn it said Celtics saver ties with Sabastian Telfair. Loooong time ago.

    the celtics owner *said* that they would release him, but they didn't actually. apparently it was just tough talk to appease the fans.

    i suppose ainge realized that he should try to get some value for telfair, considering the pick he traded away to get telfair would have netted brandon roy or randy foye...

    What if it were at the cost of Granger?? I would do a Jack and Webster for Granger, if we decide that JO is going to be sticking around for awhile
