Worth a new, separate post (after 5 p.m. no less), if only for the "fun" value: KG to the Celtics? Henry from TrueHoop has the latest (via Chad Ford). I'm sure I'll have more tomorrow leading the A.M. Quickie post, but still... here's my initial thoughts:
T'wolves: I have been saying for years now that they simply aren't going to win big with KG anymore, so they might as well implode it as "KG's team" and start over. At least then, there's hope. This deal completely rebuilds the team:
Consider Randy Foye, now with Al Jefferson and Gerald Green (plus Telfair and Ratliff), along with the No. 5 (Boston's) and No. 7 (own) draft picks, which gives them two of the following six players: Al Horford, Brandan Wright, Corey Brewer, Mike Conley Jr., Jeff Green, Joakim Noah. Again: They may not win now, but they deliver the all-important hope.
Celtics: Again, I think they should be jettisoning Paul Pierce and starting over (they're already near rock-bottom as it is), but as long as they're going for "win-now," getting KG to pair with Pierce (and Rondo) makes the Celtics a playoff team in the East, where it has been proven all you need is one star and slop to win the conference. Losing the No. 5 pick? Who cares? They're trying to win NOW, remember?
If nothing else, it provides a little sizzle to an already super-intriguing NBA offseason.
