If Bradley returns healthy, would you be willing to trade Courtney Lee to Milwaukee for Drew Gooden?  (With the Celtics being hard-capped, they may need to send out another player who makes around the minimum.)
No interest in Drew Gooden. Brain dead team defender.

Gooden wouldn't upgrade the team.

Crazy Trade Idea:

Celtics:
Josh Smith

Hawks:
Brandon Bass
Fab Melo
Quincy Miller
Evan Fournier
Celtics 1st pick (2012)
Celtics 1st pick (2014)

Nuggets:
Courtney Lee
Mike Scott
Celtics 2nd Round Pick

Idk. Maybe. I'm not good at making trade scenarios.

I'd like to keep Bradley as well but you gotta give something up to get something in return. Will Bradley someday be better then lee? Maybe but would having lee/terry/barbosa and gortat be better than lee/terry/barbosa/Bradley and no center? Tempting enough for me I think. Tough call.

I think Bradley is already a better defender than Lee. I would trade Bradley in a deal for Gortat but I wouldn't be happy about it. I know we need a legit center. I also think Gortat looks better than he really is in Phoenix, like so many people do playing in a defenseless west coast offense. I'd rather take a long shot at landing Smith or Cousins or  but I'd settle for Gortat if those attempts failed. Maybe 2 first rounders and Lee+Bass gets you Smith. Maybe 3 first rounders and AB+Sullinger gets you Cousins. I'd mortgage the future on a deal for Cousins for sure.

I'm not sure if I said this already. But outside of Paul, KG and Rondo, give the Warriors whoever they want and bring Bogut here.

If I thought he could stay healthy I would jump on that but I really have no faith in him to do so. Over the last 5 seasons Bogut has played in 58% of his games. By comparison Stephan Curry (who has bee labeled as injury prone) has played 79% of his games. I know they took a chance dealing Ellis for Bogut because if he's healthy he's a top 5 center. I wouldn't put any money on that being the case for the rest of his career.
