Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Among the players coming to Boston are Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries. However, CSNNE Celtics insider Sherrod Blakely has learned that the team may be looking to deal those two. Wallace has three years left on his contract, while Humphries has only one year left on his.
The Celtics currently have more players than they can keep on the active roster, thus the possibility of trades.
CSNNE: Blakely: C’s look to deal Wallace & Humphries
This isn’t exactly the most shocking news in the world. The Celtics didn’t get Humphries and Wallace because they wanted Humphries and Wallace. They got them because they were a means to an end… specifically the means to the end of the Paul Pierce era, and the best available way to get assets in return for that. Now that that mission has been accomplished, it’s time to move on.
