We get Jefferson, they get Pierce and Kris Joseph. Who says no?

Pierce is still a better player than Big Al. By quite a big margin too.

No interest.

I mean, I'm opposed to trading pierce form a sentimental level, but I don't think that's an awful trade.

Although it puts ALOT of pressure on JG. your trading our Starting SF and our SF draft pick for a PF.

So it makes Green our primary SF (who thus far hasen't impressed, though i don't think he's as terrable as people are making out)

And I guess...Lee is the backup SF? that sounds like a potential disastor spot.

No.



KG, Pierce and Rondo are not tradeable if you are trying to win now.

Good point. The SF spot would be too weak without Pierce. I also feel sentimental about Pierce. ...but he has certainly lost a step. What is he shooting?

Utah should be asking for Pierce, a young player like Bradley or Sullinger, and a first round pick.

What about moving Sullinger over to take Pierce's place in the starting line-up?

They got him for two picks.

They're not going to get a bigger haul than that.

This is exactly what I had in mind. Sullinger can easily replace PP in starting unit.

You really think Sully can play the SF spot offensivly and, more importantly, Defensivly?

I have some beach front property in montana you might be intrested in  ;)

Pierce is really ballast in that trade to make salaries match.

Utah should be asking for more than Ainge was asking for when he was shopping Ray Allen.  Allen was almost shipped to Memphis for OJ Mayo and a draft pick, reportedly, so Utah should be holding out for at least that much value.
