Waive bye bye to Perk

Cavs waived Perk today.
This is a major face cracking’. When’s the last time a player got waived during Summer League by a team he didn’t even play for last season?

Perkins was not a great player by any stretch, but he surely made serious contributions to the 2008 Cs championship team which should never be forgotten.

Trading Perk was one of the biggest mistakes that Danny made.

Wasn't Perkins traded in part because Ainge didn't want to pay him when his contract ended?

Of course, Jeff Green turned out to be at best a semi-flop in Boston, but when the trade was made it did not sound all that bad. And, Perkins never played anywhere else as well as he had played in Boston.

The reason is irrelevant because Doc specifically stated that they did not realize the impact it would have on the players. Players on other teams said that Boston was no longer feared. The Celtics defensive DNA was changed for the worse.

The aftermath of the trade reflected a decline in that championship run for the Celtics.

It was reported that Perk cried like a baby. I feel quite certain that he would have agreed to a reasonable contract.

There is one other poster on this forum that understands this. Shall we tear the scab off of his wound?

I don't have a problem with this deal. I'm not much of a Perk fan.

Has not impact on Boston therefore it is not important, really.

Don't be surprised to see Perk show up somewhere as a asst coach/big man coach somewhere. I had read last year that Cleveland wanted him as a coach but he still thought he could play. This could be the beginning of a new career for Perk. Good luck to him, he was a good Celtic player while he was here and has always spoken highly of his time in Boston

Not too sure that if I were the head coach that I would turn Perk loose coaching my young big men on offense.

he was an excellent locker room influence no matter where he was. I am sure offense is not what he would be assigned to do.
