O'Neal has got to go.
At one point in his career, Jermaine O'Neal was one of the top big men in the league. Then, as it happens with so many other players, his body betrayed him and he became a shell of his former self.
It's not his fault that Ainge gave him $6 million to spend two-thirds of the season on the sidelines, injured with any number of ailments. But just the same, his startling lack of production given his salary and role on the team (starting center) are enough reason to try to move him no matter what.
His contract is up, which makes him appealing, even if he is injured, which at the moment, he is. The Celts will be lucky to get anything productive out of him going forward, so why not flip him to a team looking to clear salary space for a couple second-round picks?
Even if said second-rounders never play in Boston, they will provide almost as much for this team as O'Neal ever has.
