NBA trade rumors: Boston Celtics eye Amar'e Stoudemire


ESPN NBA Reporter Chris Broussard reports that the Boston Celtics re willing to make a deal with the New York Knicks for All-Star forward Amar’e Stoudemire:


It seems crazy that a young and rebuilding team like the Celtics, who are being coached by a rookie head coach in Brad Stevens, would be willing to take on the contract of an overpaid veteran like Stoudemire.

But when you look at the contract numbers and the players the Celtics could potentially move for him, it makes perfect sense. The Celtics would likely trade forward Gerald Wallace and shooting guard Courtney Lee, who both have fully guaranteed contracts until 2016. Stoudemire’s deal is only partially guaranteed for next season, the Celtics could move on from their bad contracts and rebuild their team over the next three seasons.

Stoudemire’s is currently averaging three points and two rebounds in ten minutes of play per game.
