Curious trade by the Celtics. It appears that they will be sending the fifth pick in the draft, Delonte West, and Wally Szerbiadvalkdjnk to the Sonics for Ray Allen. Huh? The Paul Pierce that they have is demanding a trade. Instead of trading him and rebuilding (the sensible move), they are trading the number 5 pic for another Paul Pierce, only this one is 2 years older. I don't get this move on any level. They have probably locked up the 6th seed in the East for the next two years, but this team has ZERO upside. The Celtics two best players are on the back end of their primes and have pretty much the same skill sets.
I really dig this trade from the Sonics point of view.
