I'm not believing this one nearly as much as the Atlanta stuff, but it's a very borying time and any 'news' is worth posting right now
Artest, Cro and future 1st rounder to Boston for Pierce.
I heard this one on ESPN radio today. I kinda like it since it involves dumping Cro's contract and keeps our core team intact.Anyone else hear Dan Patrick today? Can you confirm or deny this?It was one of the guests on either Dan Patrick or The Herd. He said Ainge has had a hard-on for Artest since watching him bascially make PP look like "a NBDL player" in the first round of the playoffs. He also said Pierce is the only tradable player on the Celtics roster. Nobody in the NBA wants any of the other players. So if Ainge wants to improve through trades....Pierce is it.
I won't hold my breath until if and when I hear this again from someplace else, but it's a boring time of the summer, so let's discuss:
Ron and Cro for Pierce and a draft pick.
You do that, then you can just keep Al as the starting SF.
Could be a very interesting lineup.
