Wally Comments On The Trade

From The Star Tribune:
"I've got a lot of mixed emotions," Szczerbiak said by phone late Thursday. "Seven years is a long time to be with one team. I've got nothing but great things to say about Minnesota fans. The team gave me a great opportunity. But both parties apparently thought it was time to make a change."

Szczerbiak suspected his uneasy alliance with Garnett played a role in the trade. "Chemistry, there's been no secret about the me-and-Kevin Garnett thing," he said. "[McHale] must have seen something that wasn't working. It's not exactly an epiphany."

"I'm excited," he said. "It sounds like Boston is excited to have me. It's close to home. My family and friends are ecstatic."
