Cavs set bar high in Anthony Parker trade talks

By

ESPN's Marc Stein has an update on the Celtics/Bulls pursuit of Anthony Parker:

The Celts covet an extra playoff-tested shooter/defender as much as the Bulls, with Marquis Daniels out indefinitely and Delonte West missing much of the season so far. Yet it remains to be seen whether either of the two teams is willing to meet Cleveland's asking price.

The Cavs are seeking a quality draft pick or a young big man with promise in exchange for Parker, who’s averaging 11.5 points and shooting 47 percent on 3-pointers in February.

I'm not sure whether a late 1st round pick qualifies as "quality" but that's all the Bulls and Celtics can offer the Cavs.

The Celtics do have a young big man on the roster – Semih Erden.

While I'd gladly ship a 1st rounder for the 35-year old Parker, I'm hesitant to include Semih in any deal.

I like Parker's game, but Cleveland's asking price is a bit steep.
