Mark Blount Scouting ReportThe Celtics Blog offers an "unbiased" scouting report detailing the strengths and weaknesses of Mark Blount as well as the info below:
Trade Kicker: All in all, he has the talent to be so much more. Most know by now that he has a trade kicker that will pay him 15% more than his current salary if traded. Most Celtics fans tend to believe that his effort will increase about 15% if traded as well. Blount has been a disgruntled employee since O’Brien quit two seasons ago. That didn’t stop him from taking the Celtics money, but I think he would have been happier somewhere else. It is very possible that he’ll give that much more effort (for a while at least) in an effort to stick it to the Celtics and prove how good a player he is. Of course, there are no guarantees.
