Mentioned most in NBA calls today: Whether or not Celtics can work out sign-and-trade for OJ Mayo, or perhaps Courtney Lee.— Sam Amico (@SamAmicoFSO) July 12, 2012
Please please please please pleeeease, let one of these happen!
With Ray Allen's departure and Bradley's uncertain status for the beginning of the regular season, the Celtics desperately need another guard. O.J. Mayo or Courtney Lee would be perfect in my opinion.
Last year O.J. Mayo averaged 12.6 points a game for Memphis while shooting 40% from the floor and 36% from three-point range.
Courtney Lee averaged 11.4 points per game last year but shot 43% from the floor and 40% from behind the arc. Lee also has a good reputation with Doc Rivers.
The knock on Lee is that he's been on three teams in his four years in the league.
Personally, I'd still perfer Courtney Lee but I'd be more than happy if the Celtics signed either player. And I'm betting so would Rondo.
