If you’re like me you’re hoping, praying and wishing for Danny Ainge to pull off a move that will add some much needed help but keep KG and Pierce for one last title run. As Thursdays trade deadline looms closer and closer it appears that Josh Smith won’t be walking through that door, Dwight Howard won’t be walking through that door and neither will any other big names. Steve Bulpett from the Boston Herald is reporting per a team source that the C’s:
Are one of the more active teams out there talking, but they really don’t have a lot of great options. They don’t have a lot to trade.
So basically that means a Jeff Green/Brandon Bass package is not enough to land anyone substantial. The injury bug not only hurt their chances of making a run for a championship, but also to pull off any trades. It's time to face the facts, they don’t have many attractive pieces that other teams are eager to acquire; they don’t even have any expiring contracts which have helped deals in years past.
