Celtics sent Solomon to Kings for conditional 2nd Round pick.



Chris Sheridan: A source tells me the Boston Celtics have agreed to trade Patrick O'Bryant to Toronto for backup point guard Will Solomon. There were reports that O'Bryant was headed to Sacramento, but this deal fills Boston's need for another option at point guard behind Rajon Rondo, Eddie House and Gabe Pruitt, and it gives the Raptors another big body to bring off the bench.

Anyone who watched Andrea Bargnani and Jake Voskuhl try to stop Zydrunas Ilgauskas last night can see why the Raptors would be looking for some more size.

Solomon is a big body - good minor trade for Celts.

That's the name of one of my Tios, but yeah, close to meaningless move.

I saw on CL that it actually turned into a three team deal, with Solomon heading to the Queens. Meanwhile, Boston gets a conditional 2nd round draft pick from the kings.

They were desperate for a backup PG and this is what they do?!

Hilarious.

I was being sarcastic.

Celtics have no big depth at all... it's quite funny.

So no Marbury eh?

You're right... what the hell is going on?

I'm guessing Celtics paid the Kings to keep Solomon to keep roster spots.
