Fab Melo Is Available in Trades, As Celtics Look For Guard Help

 

With a stellar past 10 games in the books, even without Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger, the C’s are proving to the C’s front office they are still able to compete with some elite squads around the NBA. With the team’s injury and roster situation as is though, it’s obviously they need players who can help now. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Celtics are making Fab Melo available in trade offers as they hunt for useful help in the backcourt.

 

CH’s Take: This is encouraging news to me for a couple reasons. First off, while Ainge is approaching this trade deadline with an eye to the future undoubtedably, it’s clear he’s realizing you can’t have it both ways right now if you want this team to be able to compete. While young assets like Avery Bradley and Jared Sullinger are likely off-limits, Melo is a guy who is at least 2-3 years from being a regular contributor in the NBA.

I’ve also talked to sources who are close to the Celtics organization who tell me that Doc Rivers is not exactly found of the young Melo, who is a bit too much of a clown for his liking. Put two and two together and you have a willingness for Ainge to deal his first round pick from last year to bring in a potential rental for the rest of the way.

Some potential trade scenarios involving Melo you ask? C’s could package him with Barbosa and potentially a second round pick and cash to a non-playoff team with such additional depth in the backcourt. Phoenix is one team offhand that comes to mind, as does Minnesota. We’ll take a closer look at the possibilities in the coming hours, but for now Melo may be the most likely Celtic to be moved in the next 24 hours.

    Well, if Melo is too much of a clown for Doc you can scratch Dwight off the list of guys Ainge is interested in.

    Sigh… Everyone knew this was a wasted pick from the second it was announced. Maybe having it end mercifully early in a swap for some back of the roster guard depth would be best for all of us. I'm gonna go look longingly at my PJ3 poster now.

    What? Trade our very own future JaVale McGee? Oh, the agony…

    Obviously Doc knows him much more than I do, but even if Melo seems like a clown, he also seems earnest and sincere, unlike D12.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
