Joe Dumars reportedly turned down yet another offer from the Boston Celtics.
The proposed deal had the Pistons sending power forward Jason Maxiell and a future first round draft pick to the Celts for Glen Davis and D-League talents J.R. Giddens and Gabe Pruitt. Is it any surprise that Joe Dumars immediately pulled the plug?
This was the first story I read regarding the trade and the question at the end was my thought exactly. Essentially, this trade is the Celtics dumping a couple guards on the Pistons, who have plenty of guards, and then asking for Mad Max and a first round pick for Big Baby.
Personally, I think Mad Max for Big Baby straight up might not be far fetched, but adding in a first round draft pick is too much and definitely warranted an immediate rejection. There's an outside chance the Pistons could be a lottery team next season, so giving up a potential lottery pick for Glen Davis does not whet my whistle one bit.
In my book, that's two bad trade offers from the Celtics this summer. That kills my buzz.
