Rumor: Are the Bobcats after Sheed?


Via Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer:

There's a report on that the Charlotte Bobcats and Boston
Celtics are in trade talks involving Glen "Big Baby'' Davis. I'm told
the two teams have talked, but I wouldn't be so certain Davis would be
the guy the Bobcats covet.

The Celtics need another guard who can knock down shots, which
brings D.J. Augustin (or possibly Flip Murray) to mind. Obviously, the
Bobcats would love to get Rasheed Wallace, a longtime favorite of coach
Larry Brown, who hasn't played particularly well of late in Boston.

The beauty of Wallace in Charlotte would be his wide skill set, You
could pair him with any of three big men — Tyson Chandler, Nazr
Mohammed or Boris Diaw — and he could blend with whatever strengths
and weaknesses the other big man had.

Why would Charlotte want Sheed? Because at 25-25, they are fighting with the Heat and Bulls for the 6th and 7th playoff spots. He's a veteran presence and he's relatively cheap (2 more years at $5.8 million).

No way the Celtics trade Wallace. Despite his struggles, he's our best insurance policy for Kevin Garnett and there's always hope he will come around… especially in the playoffs.
