Do it, Danny

According to ESPN (more details on TV than in the story), there is a chance that the Celtics will be part of a 4 team deal involving the Lakers, Timberwolves, and Pacers.  The headline part of the deal would be Kevin Garnett going to the Lakers (to team up with Kobe Bryant, who might now believe that the Lakers are trying to win), Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum going to the Pacers, Jermaine O'Neal going from the Pacers to the Celtics, and the Timberwolves getting the Celtics #5 pick and perhaps Gerald Green or Sebastian Telfair.

If this deal works out this way, the Celtics should do it.  Trading the #5 pick and perhaps one young player who is unproven for a legitimate all-star like Jermaine O'Neal would be a no-brainer.  O'Neal is almost 29 and averages almost 20 points and 10 rebounds per game.  He'd be the legitmate center that the Celtics need and would allow Al Jefferson to be a true power forward a la Kevin McHale.

Some reports say that the trade is breaking down because the Celtics are balking about including other players, such as Theo Ratliff, Green, and Telfair in the deal.  The Celtics have enough young players.  They need a veteran big man.

Do it, Danny!
