Smith is the best fit for the team's needs - his natural position is PF, which is our weakest starting spot (once Avery comes back).  He's one of the league's most dangerous transition threats at the 4 (a great fit with Rondo).  And he's young with a clean bill of health.

Varejao's a close second (I dock him for injury concerns).

Big Al would be nice, but he's not a great fit for our needs.

Any of these trade scenarios depend on Jeff Green busting out and souping up his trade value.  Atlanta and Cleveland in particular are starved for talent at the 3-spot.  If Green starts putting together stretches of games like last night in Utah, those teams might be partial to building a deal around him and smaller assets (Lee, Sully, Melo, future picks).
Pick 2 Team: Rockets (McHale)
PG M. Chalmers ($4 mil) SG J. Harden ($5.8 mil) SF W. Chandler ($5.9) PF Nene ($13) C S. Hawes ($6.5) 6th man: Ginobli ($14.1) 7th man: Marv Williams ($8.3) Enforcers: F. Ezeli ($1), C. Hayes ($5.5) Bench Marksman: A. Morrow ($4) Young Gun: R. Jackson ($1.2) Greybeard: P. Prigioni ($.5) Towel-Waver: Mike Scott ($.5)

Face it, we aren't trading green. Its absurd that his name would come up over one of our many 2's. Our best bet is to go after a big whos team could use a new starting SG


Not really.


He plays behind Pierce.


He is young enough.

His contract is big enough not to need a lot of filler.
So our backup sf is....

if we had a healthy green and bradley last year i can't see how we would not have another banner

Because neither have size.  Once Bosh came back, the Celtics no longer played even with the Heat. 


And you can find another backup SF who can play 10- 15 minutes a game in the playoffs.  (unless of course the team wants to give Lee 5 - 10 minutes there because of the guard depth)


If lack of size shows to be the same issue as last year and the rookies don't improve fast enough, this may have to happen.
