Chad Ford Rumor: Telfair to Boston for #7 Pick and Dickau


From Chad Ford's blog:
My colleague Andy Katz mentioned in his article on the workout that the Celtics were having trade discussions with several teams, including the Blazers.

Multiple sources told me last night that those talks are real. The Blazers and Celtics have discussed a trade that would send Sebastian Telfair to Boston for Dan Dickau and the No. 7 pick.

The Blazers asked for Dickau's medical records to see how he's healing from his Achilles' tendon injury. The thinking as of late last night was that if Dickau checks out medically, the Blazers would seriously consider pulling the trigger on the deal. If he doesn't, they may come back and ask for more compensation.

If the Telfair-to-the-Celtics deal happens, the Blazers would look at Brandon Roy, Rudy Gay and Foye as possibilities for pick No. 7. One of those players is likely to still be there.
Sebastian Telfair could totally blossom, but Portland has too many point guards, so I'd seriously consider it. Not sure why they'd be so concerned about Dickau, however. Would he even get playing time?
