Celtics futures are looking up

Making a trade for both a legitimate point guard and a center is big news for Danny Ainge and the Celtics.

“We think that he is probably the most ready of all the young point guards that were in the draft,” Ainge said. “He’s the same age as most of those guys (21), and he’s got (2,971) minutes under his belt.”

They also managed to get out from under their worst contract, that of LaFrentz. They will be paying Ratliff for two years at $11.7 million, but LaFrentz was due $12.2 million for three years.

And best of all, they didn't have to give up on Jefferson et al to do it. - Boston Celtics: Celtics point at Telfair -- Send pick to Portland for PG, Ratliff

The Herald is still reporting a possible deal for Iverson is still in the works. (blechhh... Have they learned nothing from the Patriots about character?)
