Well it's fire sale time in D.C. and the hot rumor is Antawn Jamison to the Cavs for J.J. Hickson and Big Z's expiring contract. Ian Thomsen discussed this again in this post. Then I brought up the idea of the C's offering the Wiz, Big Baby and Ray's expiring contract, with the caveat that Ray would be bought out and return to the Celtics in a month. Truth be told a month off around that time would probably be good for playoff Ray. TB had previously brought up the idea of trading for Caron Butler earlier in the season. At that time though the Wizards had ideas of grandeur and weren't pointing fingers guns at each other. Based on age I believe it would cost more than Baby and salary relief to get Butler, but who knows. Also, obviously other players would have to be included in each deal for salary cap purposes.
The Celtics need to be proactive. The Lakers with Bosh or the Cavs with Jamison would be scary, so which deal would you pursue? Glen Davis and Ray Allen for Jamison, or Glen Davis, Ray Allen and a 1st rounder for Butler? Remember in each scenario, Ray Allen returns to the Celtics in a month. Feel free to comment on your reasoning for your vote if you like.
