According to Business Insider, Ray Allen told the Miami Herald today about a failed trade in 2009 between the Boston Celtics and the Phoenix Suns that would have sent Allen and Rajon Rondo to Phoenix for Amar'e Stoudemire, Leandro Barbosa, and the 14th overall pick: Former Boston Celtics player Ray Allen spoke with the Miami Herald today, and revealed the details of a failed trade in 2009 that would have changed everything. According to Allen, Celtics GM Danny Ainge proposed a trade in 2009 that would have sent Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Amar'e Stoudemire, Leandro Barbosa, and the 14th-overall pick. Luckily for us, we were able to hold on to Rondo and we are getting Barbosa. But what do you think would have happened if the Celtics had gotten Amar'e? How would that have worked with KG when he came back from his injury, since we still had Perkins so there would be no need for Garnett at the 5? Leave your comments below.
