IN THE WORKS: Celtics Trade Courtney Lee for Jerryd Bayless from Grizzles

Updated: January 5, 2014

The Celtics are making a trade that can help benefit them perfectly with a scoring point guard coming in until Rondo. Bayless can help Jordan Crawford and they can turn into a lethal back court if all goes how it is supposed too. The Celtics received Jerryd Bayless for the Celtics swingman and it should be noted that Jerryd had posted 22 and 15 points this season. What you get with Bayless is a scoring guard that ca help space the floor out and he can turn into a floor general. Bayless’ contract is expiring after this season and Lee has 2 years left on his contract.  The Celtics and Grizzles both get a great deal out of this but the winner to me is the Celtics as Courtney’s shot has bee struggling. This is a business and the show must go on. Bayless could be a great leader for Phil Pressey and also he can be a great help coming off the bench when Rondo comes back.

Bayless is averaging 8 points a game and 3 assists a game this season but he has his moments where he can takeover a game. Bayless scored 15 points in the 4th quarter against the Celtics in November and is capable of making things happen.
