David West is about to be a Boston Celtic. West will head to Boston in exchange for Jermaine O’Neal and another, unnamed player. So… yeah. David West for Jermaine O’Neal and a scrub. There are plenty of good “basketball reasons” for this trade. If you think the trade is going to fall through, Bill Simmons trumpeted it early tonight. He knows people in front offices. This is going through. It makes less sense than the Chris Paul trade, but it’s definitely going through.
That potential bullpen … wow.
Mortensen made himself the centerpiece.
The last day of July.
