Very interesting if true. Obviously the trade deadline is now over three months behind us, and clearly the teams couldn't work something out, but it's interesting to think about who the Celtics would have included in the deal. If it were Big Al and his $15 million price tag, the Celtics would have most likely built the deal around Paul Pierce's expiring deal and a good young player (Jared Sullinger or Avery Bradley) to sweeten the pot for Utah.
However, if it were Millsap and his $7.2 million cap hit, the possibilities are endless. It could have been a one for one for Jeff Green (the Jazz starting forwards were abysmal), a Bass and either Sully or Bradley combo, ect. Either way, if Dickerson is right, this just furthers the notion that Danny Ainge was pushing har...
