Splitting this apart from the roster news thread. Two separate threads is necessary with more trade rumors heating up.
There is a rumored 3 team trade involving the Celtics, Lakers and Kings. Boston has interest in DeMarcus Cousins.
Take this with a grain of salt imo. Just thought I'd post this to stir some debate, even though I have no idea how reliable this guy is.....
if we get cousins .... idk what to say really .
**** is going down
idk if this is irreverent but Mavs wavied one of there guards
you think they are involved?Quote:
Mavericks waive guard Chris Douglas-Roberts.
A. Sherrod is reporting something is in the works, thus the reason for Joseph's cut.
In the first of what will likely be more moves by the Boston Celtics, the C's have waived rookies Jarvis Varnado and second-round pick Kris Joseph.
Two league sources contacted on Sunday said that the Celtics will look to bolster their roster via a multi-player trade.
And now that the C's are starting to play better, the C's will have more attractive trading pieces to work with.
While it's unlikely the Celtics will look to move any member of their big Three - Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett - league sources confirmed that there's "growing" interest in Courtney Lee who might become more expendable with the return of Avery Bradley. Brandon Bass is another possible Celtic on the move, one league source said.
"But it's not like the Celtics are shopping those guys," the second source said. "They have some good players who haven't played as well I think as those players would want or what the Celtics expected."
But Joseph being waived caught many - including his agent Chris Luchey - off guard.
"I wasn't totally shocked, because you know this is part of the business," he told CSNNE.com. "But yeah, it's definitely disappointing." ...
And while Luchey acknowledges he doesn't know specifically what the C's next move will be, they are positioning themselves to handle any kind of trade whether it be small or a blockbuster one.
"In this business when you're talking trades, sometimes you need a roster spot or two to make it happen," Luchey said. "And clearly the Celtics are able to do that now."
I'm pretty positive Courtney Lee is out of here. Not positive on others like Bass and Sully.
Must be something big thought Joseph was viewed highly by the celtics.
I'd prefer Terry to be moved than Lee. Younger, better defender, and can still get better.
Know it won't happen but I wish terry could go rather than lee. I really think lee is a good fit for this team.
Lee hasn't worked out quite well for us yet. He's got more trade value, too. He's pretty much out of here.

The name that keeps coming up with everyone I speak with about the #Celtics and trades, is #Kings stud DeMarcus Cousins.
If either one if them goes i won't be concerned, as long as we got solid value im happy with any trade
