This series disaster can push Celtics to pull Carmelo trigger

This series disaster can push Celtics to pull Carmelo trigger

At the start of the second half of the Cavaliers historic Boston Massacre rout on Friday night, TNT broadcasters Chris Webber and Reggie Miller already were dissecting what moves the Celtics can make in the offseason.

Before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals even had ended, debate on how the Celtics close the canyon that exists between them and the Cavaliers had begun. The Post reported last month Celtics coaches had interest in pursuing a trade for Carmelo Anthony at Februarys deadline, but general manager Danny Ainge didnt want to wipe out his 2017 summer cap space.

Now what? Some NBA executives at Chicagos draft combine predicted the extent of Ainges offseason retooling hinged solely on whether his team was competitive with Cleveland and could take the Cavaliers to six hard-fought games.

Instead, the series has turned into a major embarrassment and black eye for Adam Silvers two-team NBA. The Celtics look as if they dont belong on the same floor as the Cavaliers, who posted two straight routs in Boston, including the 44-point blowout Friday.

The Post has reported the Knicks are interested in Bostons defensive small forward Jae Crowder as a centerpiece in an Anthony deal. Crowder has been overwhelmed by LeBron James, so Ainge could be more apt to deal him. A 2018 first-round pick (the Celtics have two of them) would be icing.
