He's not a career 16ppg scorer. And Reggie Evans would be a huge help. I really wanted Ainge to sign Evans.
Jeff Green is garbage, his contract is garbage, and Danny Ainge is a garbage GM.
I've been saying that the Perk trade was awful since the day it was made, and I think time has vindicated me.
The only thing good about him is that he pretty much makes statheads look like geniuses when they determined (a long time ago) that he sucked, despite all of the scouts/pundits/coaches/fans saying how much "potential" he had.
Jeff Green has two issues. 1) he plays consistently timid and sometimes with swagger 2) he is a tweener for the better or the worse. Not too tall , strong, exceptional wingspan be a PF , and not too quick nor can't shoot too great to be a sf. Danny Ainge def messed up on this one. If all else, he paid him 2 to 3 million too much a year.
Honestly i rather see Kris Joseph out there now backing up Pierce. He doesn't have all the tools like Green but he has the right tools to play SF better. Looks like a young pierce and could learn alot from the master himself.
If celtics are thinking of making a big move on trade deadline, I would use Jeff Green as the #1 bait. We are still hurting bad in the rebounding department. Two ideas
1) To Brooklyn for Reggie Evans + 1st round pick
2) To Utah with 1st round pick, Melo for Al Jefferson.
not only do da contracts not match but why da hell would u wanna trade a 16ppg career scorer for an offensively challenged dude like Reggie Evans? yeen gotta like Jeff Green but trade proposals like dis are unbelievable mane lol
I didn't, never has a player made more out of one ability than reggie evans.
When you put reggie on the floor, you essentially concede that you will be planing 4 on 5 offensively, barring 1-3 trips a night where he gets an offensive board.
Also, don't be afraid to foul him on those o-rebounds other team, for reggie will quite surely get one FT at best, and is likely to miss both.
And defensively? shoot away dear other team, for while reggie is a fantastic rebounder, he is an average P & R defender at best and can be readily abused in any switch when he gets a quicker player on him. You'll notice reggie back way off, with fear in his eyes.
if you listen close you can hear him thinking "please don't drive...omgdon'tdrive...!.. please just shoot so I can get the rebound if you miss....don't drive!!"
But, if you brick your wide open shot, rest assured reggie will rebound THE HELL out of that basketball.
Look, I'm all for Rebounding, it's a valuable skill we need more off, but not at the expense of every other skill a player could have. There are plenty of other journeymen who rebound SLIGHTLY worse than Evans but don't murder your offensive and Defensive flow when put into a game.
