Big Three & Sheed
It seemed like all the major players added a piece recently except for the Boston Celtics. That changed when Rasheed Wallace agreed to join the C’s for the mid-level exception. Teamed with KG, the Celtics not only have two of the more fiery Power Forwards in the league, but two dynamic multi-dimentional big men, something that caused Cleveland fits in the Eastern Conference Finals. He also gives the Celtics another big man, along with KG and Kendrick Perkins, to take on Shaq.
Sheed’s fantasy value takes a hit. With Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, KG, and Rajon Rondo, there just won’t be enough shots to go around. With KG and Perkins down low, he won’t grab a ton of rebounds. This signing wasn’t about his number though. It was about winning. As long as everyone stays healthy, the Celtics should be right in the mix to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals.
The deal won’t be official until Wednesday.
