Jamario Moon Wants Boston (UPDATED)


Moon, we hear, wants to be in Boston. New Jersey Ledger

Moon would be a great fit in Boston, he is 6'8 and can play the vital back up Paul Pierce role we were looking for. I was hoping we could reel in Matt Barnes but it looks as if he is headed to Orlando. But Moon is a good defender, and can score at times, (he's averaging 8 points per game in his 3 year career). So if the Celtics can sell him, than why not?


***UPDATED***

Sorry Celtics fans this one isn't going to happen...

Three league sources close to negotiations confirmed that the Celtics explored a now-dead sign-and-trade deal that would have sent Davis to Miami in exchange for restricted free agent Jamario Moon. The plan never got off the ground because both young players fall into a dreaded category known as base-year compensation. This would seem to end the Celtics’ interest in Moon, who is aiming higher than the $1.9 million biannual exception the Celtics can offer in a straight-up signing (Mark Murphy).

This just means Big Baby Davis is coming back, and there is nothing wrong with that, but the Celtics are going to need to find someone to backup Pierce unless they are really sold on Walker, Tony Allen (cocksucker), and Giddens.

That has nothing to do with them just outright signing him.

they can only give him the 1.9 exception, and from what they are saying in this report it doesn't sound like he will take that. He wants more....
