New York Daily News -
Denver, Orlando and Minnesota are already being mentioned as possible new landing spots for Sebastian Telfair.

"I would think that the Celtics will try to get something for him," one Eastern Conference executive said Wednesday. "Once things settle down, I could see them looking to put him in a trade, being a guy who's included in a deal to make the numbers work. But somebody will take a shot on him. He's young and he made a mistake."

I wouldn't mind seeing Telfair used to make the $ match on a KG swap at all...but one thing: getting caught with guns, I do believe that Telfair has made two or three "mistakes"...and probably several more that he was never caught on.

On any of those teams his best chance to maybe possibly work his way into big minutes is Orlando.

But I'd love him in Denver. There's a chance that Steve Blake doesn't return, and I've wanted Denver to get a very talented young pg to mold for down the line when Denver goes on their youth with Melo 22/JR 21/Nene 24/ Telfair 21

Denver!?!

That would definitely be in Telfair favor. Uptempo open court offense and decent interior help defenders. Plus the backup job is his to lose if Steve Blake leaves.

I feel sorry for all of you. Telfair is the worst on court decision maker I've ever seen in my life.

Jameer Nelson may be better than Telfair ever will be...if their dissatisfied enough with Nelson to give Telfair big pt I'd love to see a swap. Telfair could be a good fit in Denver's future line-up (but there's no way he'd fit beside Iverson, so until Iverson declines or is traded he'd be useless) but the fact that he couldn't get the Cs uptempo when that's supposedly his game and it's what the team wanted to do is disheartening. And I'm not sure he's all that talented. He's quick and he can dribble but his jumper's bad, he's undersized, and neither his hustle nor his bball IQ are special.

The pg position is a difficult one to come out of HS and be good at. Because you have such responsibility. People give up on guys like this tooo easily. No doubt he hasn't been great, but he's had some games where he's shown why he was a lottery pick. If he'd come out of his Junior year in college, then I'd say maybe a bust, but its very hard to say that at this point. And very hard to say this is as good as he gets

Telfair hasn't shown any sign of lottery talent as a Celtic. I wouldn't say he's at his absolute peak now, but I'm not a big believer in his talent, either. He has not shown explosive athletic ability, good shooting ability, above-average intelligence, or good court vision. And he's only something like 5'8 (I don't care what his listed height is, he's a small player). He has good dribbling skills but that's a dime-a-dozen trait. Sure, he's only been out of HS for 3 seasons, but that excuse isn't enough for me when Rondo, who has only had two underwhelming college seasons in a system that he didn't fit, is now far ahead of him. They were in the same class, in fact him originally signing with Louisville is the reason Rondo went to UK instead of Louisville, and he has had more experience than Rondo at the NBA level by far, and yet Rondo is better. Not good.
