Celtics Send Erden, Harangody to Cleveland For Draft Consideration

After trading Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to Oklahoma, Boston made a deadline deal with the Cavaliers, trading Semih Erden and Luke Harangody for a 2nd Round draft pick.

Erden hasn’t played much in a month with his injury problems, so trading him, as much promise as he showed this season, clears up space on the roster that isn’t being wasted. Harangody was pretty much just there for huge point differentials in order to not risk the health of the starters. Although you’d hope for more than just a 2nd Rounder for the two, something is better than nothing.

Cleveland is just desperate for bodies, so they were willing to invest in some. Boston needs healthy bodies, so getting a draft pick allows them to get youth on an otherwise mostly old team. Youth usually brings durability, so this deal was another good move for Boston. Plus, with three roster spaces open and more cash available after selling off Marquis Daniels, Boston now has room to look elsewhere for a free agent big man to help the newly acquired Nenad Krstic at center until the O’Neals get back.
