Will the Celtics make a mid season trade?

Yes, we have too many guards and KG needs help from an All Star inside to be legitimate contenders
20 (38.5%)
No, we are going for the small ball approach and working out which units work best
0 (0%)
Maybe, we are probably too deep at the shooting guard position which doesn't make sense
5 (9.6%)
There won't be a trade until next season to see how this team fares for a full year
2 (3.8%)
Danny will see how things are looking in 2 months time and will then start thinking about it
25 (48.1%)

Go after Favors on Kanter... they'll offer Millisap... and eventually you can settle on Big Al

If I was going after a big and Josh SMith wasnt reasonabley priced I would look at Anderson Varejao. He plays defense and rebounds, runs the floor well.


Move KG back to PF and start them together. Bring Green, Sullinger or Bass off the bench as KG's backup and we still have Darko/Collins.

Probably cost Melo, Bass or Green and a pick.

We can't trade Green unless we get a SF in return. We're too thin there and Courtney Lee at SF would just see post up after post up.

If we could get Varejao for Bass+Melo+1st I would definitely do that. He's only 30 and he's an energy guy. He is one of my least favorite NBA players but if we can trade some of our big man depth for big man skill I'm all for it, even at the cost of a 1st.

Of course you can trade Green for another position of need.


Then trade a lesser big man for a lesser SF.

I wonder if there is any chance New Orleans decides by January that they have buyer's remorse with respect to Ryan Anderson.

One other thought (thinking outside the box)

Bass + Lee for Danny Granger (if healthy)

This is an idea I could get behind. I doubt the Pacers do it but if they would I'd take it in a second. I'd even give them a 1st to do it.

I also think that if we moved Bass and Lee we'd have more minutes at SF. Pierce would have to play a bit more SG while Avery and possibly less overall minutes when he gets back. Green would get more minutes at PF and it would give Danny Granger a while to get healthy. It also opens up a roster spot for Kenyon Martin.

Go after Favors on Kanter... they'll offer Millisap... and eventually you can settle on Big Al

We can't really afford Jefferson. We kind of can but it would take Green and Bass and someone else who makes at least the vet's minimum. I would do it but we'd have to find a FA small forward. Oh yeah and we have to pay them as little as possible. I love the idea of Millsap though. Guy is a force in the paint.

Of course you can trade Green for another position of need.

Then trade a lesser big man for a lesser SF. 

Okay, I know you can. I was saying it's not a great idea. Mostly because getting a proficient SF within our salary constraints will be tough. We invested a lot in Green not only for this team but for the future. There are SFs we could get. None of them will do much for guarding Carmelo, James or Durant. And I guess I have to hope Green might.

Here are some other mid-season options to look at:

Gortat (it would take a lot)
Bargnani (he will fit in here with his complete lack of rebounding)
Okafor (same salary as Josh Smith but probably easier to trade for)

It's gotta be done for this team to properly contend.
It's why it's being done, we don't have high picks, we have our capspace taken up so we have to acquire chips and trade them while they're hot.
Danny Ainge tried to get CP3 & David West to add to KG, Pierce and Ray Allen. Just Imagine if the stars had aligned...
