We all know why Seattle did this deal.....cap space for Lewis and a big free agent next season. Also, could Gary Payton be traded??? I think its very possible now.

Boston got Baker who IMO will be a much better player in the East with about 15ppg and 8-9rpg. However, I heard Boston could have gotten Tinsley and Croshere for Anderson alone. Now Croshere is expensive, but the deal would have been made after somepoint that Croshere's contract would be lower. And Tinsley would've been a great young PG to build the team around.

I give Boston a B and Seattle a B+ on the trade. Both are helped....Boston for a playoff push and Seattle because of cap reasons.

Are you kidding me?????

Baker is much, much better than Potapenko. I'm not a Baker, Celtics, or Sonics fan, but Baker becomes one of the top 5 C's in the East. I think he was a good addition but he does come at an expensive price.

Zo, Jermaine O'Neal, Deke, Wallace, Baker, (Ratliff is up there if healthy.)

Also, the trade was made with Boston knowing they couldn't sign Rodney Rogers.
