Celtics radio color analyst Cedric Maxwell has mixed feelings about the potential trade that would bring center Omer Asik to Boston from Houston for Brandon Bass, Courtney Lee and a draft pick.
"They really want to make this deal," Maxwell told Michael Felger and Lou Merloni on "Uno Sports Tonight." "[The Celtics] really want a big."
Maxwell said a 7-footer such as Asik "is really kind of a dinosaur. There aren't a lot of bigs out there."
Still, Maxwell pointed to the chemistry that the current Celtics have developed and questions whether the departure of Bass and Lee would disrupt that.
"There's a certain chemistry these guys have," he said. "These guys hang together. How is that going to effect, say, Jeff Green?"
