Report: Celtics, Wizards discuss major trade
|02.12.10 at 9:40 am ET|
According to a report by Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics and Wizards are talking about a deal that would send Ray Allen, Brian Scalabrine and J.R. Giddens to Washington for forwards Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler. The report stated: “The trade isn’t imminent, but talks have progressed,” and the teams are expected to continue discussions during All-Star Weekend.
The report also indicated that the Celtics may be hesitant because they would be taking on an additional $24 million in salary next season between Jamison and Butler.
Washington also reportedly is in trade talks with the Mavericks, as well as part of a stalled three-team discussion with the Knicks and Rockets that would send Tracy McGrady to the Knicks, Al Harrington and Larry Hughes to the Wizards and Caron Butler and possibly Mike Miller to the Rockets.
