Quantcast

With the Celtics at 13-12, the trade rumors and possibilities are starting to pour in.

In a recent BS report, Bill Simmons suggested trading Courtney Lee for Pacers big man Ian Mahinmi. The Celtics could use a rebounder and when Avery Bradley returns next month the team will have a logjam at two-guard.

Mahinmi is averaging 4.8 ppg and 3.7 rpg for Indiana this year in just under 16 minutes per. Those numbers are far from impressive and if that trade happened, I just can't see him taking many minutes away from Jared Sullinger.

Both teams would like the trade as it addresses each one's needs, but it would be a trade of depth and Mahinmi would just join the bench. If the Celtics trade for a big man, I hope they package Lee with another player (Bass?) and maybe a pick or two to get a real contributor.
