NBA Draft: Celtics Provide First Shake-up

By David Scott - June 28, 2007

NEW YORK - As was rumored earlier, the Celtics have apparently dumped their No. 5 pick (Jeff Green) and two players (Delonte West and Wally Sczerbiak) to Seattle for Ray Allen. About five years ago, it would have been a great deal to bring Allen to Boston. Now, we're not so sure with Allen on the downside of his stellar career. It does give Pouter Paul Pierce the veteran compadre he was clamoring for.

Once the deal is announced, it will mean Green and Durant will be teamed together in attempt to save basketball in Seattle.

. . . Another mother in white, Jeff Green's mom, Felicia Akingube got quite emotional after the pick. Someone should tell her that it's okay - her son isn't really going to the sagging Celts. He's going to the rising Sonics.
