Celtics to acquire G Courtney Lee from Rockets in a sign and trade sending back F JaJuan Johnson, sources tell Y! Details being finalized.
Good move. Still pissed that we had Marshon Brooks and traded him for ****ing Johnson though.

Well, it was inevitable that J^3 wasn't sticking around after taking Sullinger and keeping Bass and Wilcox on board. Glad we were able to turn him into a competent swingman. Johnson has a good jumper for a guy his size, but that's about it.

Oh, well, that snowballed quickly. They're welcome to Moore and Williams, but I don't like sending out that second rounder as well. Here's to hoping that Lee's just been flying under the radar because he's been on bad teams since he left Orlando.

Rajon Rondo...Avery Bradley
Courtney Lee...Jason Terry
Paul Pierce...Jeff Green...Kris Joseph
Brandon Bass...Jared Sullinger
Kevin Garnett...Chris Wilcox...Fab Melo

Well done, C's. That's a deep team. Provided there are no health problems, they are definitely a team that can beat Miami in a 7-game series.

love the rockets trading for even more players when they already have a full roster.

Bradley has to continue starting right? Then Bass is the glaring weakness kind og. I wonder about how they'll look on the boards relying two rookies and him to help Garnett.

Bradley just underwent his second major shoulder surgery. He's probably not returning until Christmas and it will likely be 2013 before he's back on stride. Courtney Lee has two NBA skills, he's a pretty good defender and he can drain wide open 3s. What were Boston's three biggest needs? A starting quality PF, someone that can hit wide open threes to stretch the floor and a guard taller than 6'2" that can play some defense. Lee fills two of those roles.

This is an excellent signing. It's hard to get a starter this late in the free agent season.

Definitely a nice little move for Boston. Like it for the Rockets too, I suppose.
