Basically, it's Glen Davis for DJ Augustine.

The Boston Celtics and Charlotte Bobcats are discussing a trade centered around Glen Davis and D.J. Augustin, according to league sources.

The sources cautioned that nothing is imminent, but said the clubs are having discussions.

The Bobcats have been searching for a power forward, and the 6-foot-9 Davis could be their man. The Celtics, meanwhile, have been longing for a backup point guard, and Augustin, who's fallen out of favor with Charlotte coach Larry Brown, would be more than adequate.

A straight-up trade would not work because Davis is a base-year compensation player, so other players would have to be involved to meet the financial requirements. That could be a sticking point in the deal.

While teams don't typically trade big for small, Boston is a bit aggravated with Davis, who's had a few off-the-court problems this season. Most notably, he missed the first 27 games of the season after breaking his thumb in an early morning scuffle with a friend.

The Celtics have been rumored to be exploring deals for Ray Allen, and while league sources insist the word "shopping'' is too strong, they say the shooting guard is definitely available. Few believe he'll be traded before the Feb. 18 deadline, though, because the Celtics aren't likely to get a better player in return.

Im actually pretty surprised by this. I thought they liked Davis especially since Garnett hasnt been himself all season. Who else do they have to play his minutes if they trade him though? Rasheed Wallace's bloated corpse?

Stupid trade for the Celtics, just dumb, Rondo and house are already there, correct me if am wrong, they could use Big Baby or whatever he changed his nickname to.

I dont think they see House as a good point guard. He is more of a really undersized 2 guard ala Jason Terry. But I agree with you they have no other serviceable 4 besides KG. Sheed I think splits time between PF and C so I feel that leaves a bigger hole than if they had Augustin.

Yes that's the key point filling the bigger hole, Celtics are getting old, and are too oft injured, would be a mistake. Rondo plays majority of the minutes at the PG, so House is serviceable enough for short spurts.

AJ Augustin looks to be a bust, 9th pick, bobcats sure know how to draft.

To add, all I have to say is Kwame Brown, damn MJ, stupid move, he must be hanging around Barkley or some, dumb and dumber, NBA addition.
