I was as shocked as anyone that Doc Rivers waffled on returning to coach the Celtics for two straight seasons, and then suddenly signed a 5 year deal. Yikes! This got me thinking, the Big Three is not long for this league. Would BOS do this trade to both squeeze the most out of their twilight years AND build for the future?
The Minny Pick allows BOS to get a stud to build around, they won't get much for the expiring contracts of Ray Allen or KG down the line. We get our stud PG, they get an All-Star C and a decent PG to compete next year for a title.
