NBA GMs: Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce trade a good idea

For the 12th straight preseason, the NBA surveyed all 30 general managers [1]. Here are the Celtics-related results.

Also, consider former Celtics center Robert Parish [13] among fans of trading Paul Pierce [14] and Kevin Garnett [15].

‘€œI thought they made a great move because Garnett and Pierce only have another year or two of premium basketball left,’€ he told the Boston Herald [16]. ‘€œ[Celtics president of basketball operations] Danny [Ainge] just pulled the plug while they still had something. It was inevitable. And, besides, I like the fact that when he moved them, he sent them to a contender. I really like that. Granted, they’€™re in the same division, but still I really like that it showed how he felt about Paul and Garnett. I like that.

‘€œAs a player, you’€™re thinking, if you’€™re going to move me, at least send me somewhere where I can win a championship.’€
