Report: Celtics, Wizards discuss major trade

According to a report by Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski [1], the Celtics [2] and Wizards [3] are talking about a deal that would send Ray Allen [4], Brian Scalabrine [5] and J.R. Giddens to Washington for forwards Antawn Jamison [6] 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 [7] to the Knicks, Al Harrington [8] and Larry Hughes [9] to the Wizards and Caron Butler and possibly Mike Miller [10] to the Rockets.
