Morgan's Magic Snowplow said:But I don't really see Asik as a great fit for this team, in the short or long term. Will Sully guard 4s on the perimeter now? That should be interesting. It probably also means fewer minutes, or at least little hope of more minutes, for KO and Vitor.
I agree that it won't help Olynyk or Faverani's development. However I would think Sully guarding his natural position would be a net positive. He's a bit short to be guarding centers. Doesn't he have to figure out how to guard PFs full-time? The rotation he's been part of this season is a bit of an anomaly.
I think this move would actually make the Celtics a tough team this year. They could even push 40 wins if Rondo returned to form. Of course that won't help any lottery aspirations.
If this deal is real, I really hope it's the Clippers pick and that Danny sees a clear way to flip Asik again at the trade deadline.
