GM's Desk: Old Nemesis Turned New Allie

Rajon Rondo & the Boston Celtics won't have to worry about fending off Derek Fisher any longer, because Randy Foye has been traded for the infamous ex-Laker point guard, though aged can still swish in three-point shots at the drop of a hat.

After trading Randy Foye in a direct swap with Utah for Brandon Bass, he had shown signs of efficiency but overall has been unable to engage the Boston offense. By trading him for Fisher, Boston gains a second much needed outside shooter with loads of experience whose talents are equal or slightly lesser than Foye's in other areas of the game.

Also relieved is the need for a "truer" point guard after Keyon Dooling was swapped in the trade that earned Boston former T-Wolve, Josh Howard, as Fisher will be able to better relieve the wily Rondo (who definitely deserves a break every now and then for his tremendous efforts) compared to inconsistent rookie, Dionte Christmas, or Avery Bradley, who is clearly raw compared to the veteran Fisher...who now wears green.
