    Is the Shav decision today?

    Its Aug 1 ... did his contract get guarenteed, or did I miss a story about him being waved? I think its really telling if he isn't waved. It means either a multi player trade is in the works, or poor Jordan (Michael) Crawford is getting the BOOT - which would be a waste.

    Yes, Crawford is a waste.

    A waste of money.

    Shav makes it because he hustles and is willing to board and bang.....

    You really concerned who else at the end of this bench gets their walking papers? It's not like they'll be picked up by anyone in the NBA. If they do, that's one team you KNOW will be ahead of the C's in the lottery parade.

    Of course, the August 1st deadline is only a deadline for Shavlik's minimum salary contract. The Celtics don't have to get below the tax until the trade deadline. They don't even have to reduce the roster till the end of training camp. So there's a good chance that nothing whatsoever happens and Randolph's contract kicks in fully guaranteed. Then the team will just have to work on a cash cutting deal for later in the summer or even into the year.

    There's no real rush to dump a guy like Crawford or anyone at all. In fact, his expiring contract might be necessary to make salaries match in a trade sometime in the next few months. I'm sure the preference is to make a larger deal that meets more of the team's objectives. But a fallback plan (again, not necessarily tomorrow) would be to make a smaller deal to cut costs.

    Are you allowed to start the season with more than 15 guys on contract?

    +1

     

    And this won't be true in the longer term but for all we know, Shav could be our best big man on the first day at the beginning of the season.
