Celtics Trade Gerald Wallace To The Warriors For David Lee

Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers

 

Great move from the Celtics here. Essentially this was an expiring contract for expiring contract trade between the 2 teams. The Warriors received an extra 4 mil in cap space to pursue other free agents along with Wallace who is a good veteran presence that is ok with a minor playing time. The Celtics, in return for Wallace received  power forward David Lee who before last season, put up 5 consecutive  solid seasons, making 2 all star games, and will be able to make a substantial contribution to this very young Celtics team, unlike Wallace who didn’t do much last season besides be a “good locker room presence”.  Yes it is a bit of a risk picking up the extra 4 million of Lee’s salary and losing the cap room but when the Celtics can’t attract free agents to come to Boston anyway what does it really matter. This is a move that made the Celtics a better team than they were the day before without having to give up to much so I like it.

PS- Maybe this is looking to far into things but Avery Bradleys jersey is more than 50% off in the team store, is he be the next to get traded?
