CSNNE.com's Celtics Insider A. Sherrod Blakely joins SNC to discuss how the loss of Sullinger will affect the Celtics.
-- -- We knew this was a problem these red flags that -- Salinger's back -- an issue a big part of the reason he dropped from the top I'd take to the 21 pick for the Celtics. Are you surprised by today's news and should we be surprised by them. Well no because if you look back when the Celtics did draft and they said that some point. He may require surgery and what they're doing now the -- is to benefit him long term because. After exploring different options to try to keep him out there and in the short -- they realized it wasn't worth. -- you know this is something that so continue to this day and was probably different but certainly when he was at valley there's only three. Eventually so many ways. Any coming on the heels of losing Rondo on me is it's as a devastating look back I think is a bigger blow losing him that it was -- -- because we had guys. We knew how to fill the gaps -- Rondo was out but you haven't of the offensive rebound you don't have a guy that that have a high basketball IQ when this team that can come -- And be the impact clear that there is eligible. What does this mean for then especially in depth in the front court -- A place that they weren't lacking to begin with how did they just now without it. Well they've been one of the worst rebounding teams all season and losing your best rebounder. He's only gonna make it worse and even the guys that Brandon Bass Chris Wilcox JC those guys like that have to step up. Become more of an impact player because that's the one thing that they miss would -- -- he's a high energy high impact guy and without him. You just can't look at one guy or two guys in his three and say he's the golden boy. And try to -- it finally time -- to keep people out in Rondo and -- for Danny aims to seriously consider. And possibly waving the white flag blowing up this team in making the major moves before the trade deadline of February 20 for. Oh no we have our. -- will not. The reason why I listen this will personally when looking -- the Watson with and that's a bad look for any team. I -- I -- the Celtics have to do is astronomy to -- because remember. As a GM you applicable to short term and long term benefits of your roster right now obviously immediately. They're -- improbable when you look down the road you got guys like just when you're gonna -- -- -- run movement. You'll have -- back Avery Bradley going on the line you've got guys down the road that are going to be much better than you are right now and that's how. Has to be demise of the Celtics tunnel weather this storm that went away. Just keep things -- And right it is gonna come white flag no no. Kaczur out lately you heard it here there's one other people that news that Melo hasn't -- he will be honest with -- and arsenide. Danny Ainge said he probably won't get many minutes but he will be in the building tonight. For now that is -- from the TD garden we'll send it -- he got.
