It seems pretty clear the Boston Celtics will be making a few moves this offseason. Obviously, all eyes are on point guard Rajon Rondo because he is entering the final year of his contract and the Celtics have to decide whether or not they will be keeping him. Most expect the Celtics to make several other deals as well.
Chuck Myron of Hoops Rumors believes the Celtics could move Gerald Wallace during the season.
I think there will be plenty of opportunities, but I don’t think it’d be a guy like Rondo — this Sixers team appears a long way off from acquiring star veteran players. It’d probably be someone on a player-friendly contract. If you’re thinking Celtics, Gerald Wallace would fit the profile. I think it comes down to how desperate the other team is and what they’re willing to offer, especially in terms of draft picks.
Wallace is due $10,105,855 for the 2014-2015 season and $10,105,855 in the following season.
It would be interesting to see if there were a lot of interest in Wallace, who just turned 32 because he has such a rough season last year (and wasn’t very good the year before with the Nets either).
Wallace averaged just 5.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 24.4 minutes per game while appearing in 58 games for the Celtics last season. The former Alabama Crimson Tide standout was drafted by the Sacramento Kings with the 25th-overall pick in the first round of the 2001 Draft and has since played for the Kings, Charlotte Hornets (Bobcats), Portland Trail Blazers and Brooklyn Nets. In his 13-year career, he’s put up 12.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
