In today's NBA, centers don't come along often. The game has become small, and with the Celtics having one legit center in Vitor. Danny may look elsewhere. The two rumored players are Green and Bass. If this was a month ago I would say yes about moving Bass, but honestly I don't like this possible trade. Green is a for sure no in my mind, but Bass could be a guy that Danny moves. Call me what you will, but Asik doesn't wow me, he's good, and the Celtics have a need for him, but there must be something else.
The Houston Rockets have made it clear they intend to trade disgruntled big man Omer Asik this month. ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported Sunday that the Boston Celtics had the potential assets to attract Houston's interest:
The advice offered to us on Sunday was stern: Keep an eye on Boston. The Celtics possess two players in different salary ranges that would presumably fit in useful ways next to Dwight Howard: Jeff Green and Brandon Bass. The Celts also have a spare first-round draft pick or two to plug into any trade equation to sweeten the deal for Houston, amid rising suspicions around the league that Morey’s Rockets are going to find a way to come out of the Asik saga with at least one future first. The same Rockets who happen to have a GM (Morey) and coach (Kevin McHale) who have long-standing relationships with Celts president Danny Ainge.
I'm just not willing to move Bass, or see him being moved. The Celtics giving up a pick also, not good with me.
