GARNETT ON HIS WAY TO THE CELTICS!

The Boston Celtics and the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to a trade in principle to bring Kevin Garnett to New England- to play for the Celtics. Danny Ainge is criticized a lot, but now everyone will have to cut him some slack for bringing Ray Allen, KG and Paul Pierce together. The one thing missing from this lineup is a true point guard. I think they are fantastic at every other position, but the point guard slot needs to be filled by a guard who is a great facilitator.

The Timberwolves have a good start to rebuilding their roster through this trade. They have some nice young talent, but won't be a playoff team for a while. Randy Foye has to come in and be a leader as this team now needs a new identity and style of play.

THOMAS TO SONICS!

Kurt Thomas and two future first round picks were dealt over to the Seattle Supersonics for a second round draft pick in 2009. This deal is important for the Sonics because they got an experienced player. He will be a nice scrappy player for the Sonics front line. His ability to stretch the floor with his outside jumper will be nice for pick and pops, and kick outs.

RASHARD LEWIS AGREES TO SIGN WITH ORLANDO!

Rashard Lewis upset Sonics fans by taking an offer from the Magic for 5 years and $75 million. Lewis wants to win. You can tell because he left the rebuilding Sonics for a team that looks better right now. I love this move for the player and the team. The Magic can never be too careful, so they should get Lewis to sign as soon as they can on July 11th. The Magic will make a big move forward with this and I think a ten game improvement would be an understatement. Dwight Howard must sense that the Magic are making all the right moves at the right times.
