It’s Adrian Wojnarowski vs. Danny Ainge in a trade deadline week credibility showdown. Who ya got?
Ainge denies Wojnarowski’s earlier report on Yahoo! that the C’s are in discussions with the Wizards about a deal that would send Ray Allen, Scal and J.R. Giddens to the Wiz in exchange for Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison.
“There is no truth to either of those,” Ainge said. “I have had conversations with a lot of teams but those have never been discussed. There are a lot of things I would like to do but I don’t feel a need to do something. I am always looking to upgrade the team, if possible.”
By “either of those,” Ainge means the Wiz and the Bobcats (in reference to the rumored Glen Davis-D.J. Augustin talks), according to NECN.
So there you go. A pre-eminent NBA reporter says a thing happened, and a NBA GM says it didn’t. (Or he’s at least saying he personally didn’t speak with the Wizards regarding the Butler/Jamison combo).
Do with this what you will.
