Boston Celtics: The Big Green Machine

We'll be back and better than ever!

Big Al Staying Put

Posted by r1zzo23 on June 18, 2009


A source confirmed to the Boston Globe on Thursday that the Timberwolves will not trade Al Jefferson to the Suns.

There were rumors late Wednesday of a deal that would send Jefferson and the sixth overall pick to Phoenix for Amare Stoudemire.

One source acknowledged that the two teams discussed a trade, but another said that the Suns quickly turned down the swap.

Minnesota general manager David Kahn has even called Jefferson to tell him that a trade will not occur, according to one of the sources.

Now that’s more like it. Stick by your young stud big man and build around him along with the #6 pick. I knew Minnesota was in a transition period and their new owner is looking to make a big splash this offseason to really make his presence felt, but this proves that he isn’t desperate by any means. With rumors like this popping up, it sounds like me a lot of them are just wishful thinking by Phoenix fans. Can’t blame them for wanted current or former Celtic players…
