Cohen 8-Ball: Grading the Decisions
The Celtics agree to trade Kevin Garnett & Paul Pierce to the Nets – C+ – Josh Cohen’s Analysis: The matter is not the decision to deal away two aging, past-their-prime stars. That’s totally understandable. The problem is the return and the plan. Boston landed a bunch of oddments, a loaded Gerald Wallace contract and three potentially unfulfilling future draft picks. Also, sources say the C’s intend on pursuing an adequate, but expensive free agent this summer. That likely suggests a mainstay in the middle of the pack for several years ahead.
