IMO, the only offers that Phoenix would consider are...

Bass + Bradley + Melo + Picks
OR
Sullinger + Melo + Lee + Picks

I'd be sad to see Bradley or Sully traded, but we can't get Gortat without giving up an asset or two.   

This rumor seems like total BS, but I would be shocked if Danny wasn't already in talks with Phoenix.  Gortat is an excellent defender, a solid rebounder, and Rondo-Gortat pick-and-rolls would be a thing of beauty.  I think that's worth giving up Bradley or Sullinger.  I'll sacrifice future potential for a better shot at Banner 18.

I agree, those are the only two offers I would see the Suns actually considering. In either case we lose a very good young player (Sullinger or Bradley), but we have to give up one of them if we really want a good big man.

Gortat is an excellent center
Boston needs a Center who can play defense
badly !

Rondo, KG, Paul are the only players I would
not trade for him.
Everyone else is expendable
unless you really like other teams scoring
95+ per night on us.

Phoenix would probably not want Sullinger. They could draft him like many others teams which passed him. I think they would want a SG for sure Bradley/Lee, they will gamble on Melo's potential so they will take him. They will not take J.Green and his contract because of Beasley and Dudley plus want to save money . But they will take Bass or Wilcox. Best for Celtics would probably be Lee,Melo,Wilcox plus first round pick

Sarver is one cheap owner.

He will want two of Bradley/Sully/Melo, as they are all on rookie deals and will probably want an expiring and picks.

Since this has to be done sooner, rather than later, Courtney Lee will be the sacrificial lamb (since his contract is the first of Green/Bass/Lee that can be traded.}

Lee's 4 year $5mil may be acceptable to Sarver, but I can see him demanding a third team be involved to get him an expiring.

Also, everyone assumes that it is Bradley who will be demanded by Sarver. I'm not so sure that Bradley's trade value due to the question marks about his health is as high around the league as it is on this blog.

I can see Sarver taking Sully/Melo plus Lee/expiring from 3rd team and picks.

Call me stupid but I'd rather not trade melo. His potential is to high and I'd love to see him develop under kg for a few years. Phx can have their pick off lee, bass, sully and if all else fails Bradley.

You really think Melo's upside is bigger than Sully's?

not even close. Melo will be lucky to be a Perkins type, Sully's ceiling is an all-star

You would rather trade sully and bradley before you trade melo? Both sully and bradley have more potential than melo.

You guys really underrate and underestimate Melo. I won't be surprised if we call him up and HE becomes the reason we win some games.

Melo definitely has the higher ceiling. However, he also has the lower floor. Melo has only been playing basketball for 6 years, while Sulinger is a coach's son. That's why you see Sulinger so fundamentally sound. But Melo just has so many raw gifts. His shot blocking, feet, agility, etc.

You obviously failed to understand my point. What I am saying is that you guys consider Melo complete useless garbage of a player. That's not true. You guys think he can't do anything. From what I have seen, Melo wants to learn. Melo is willing to do what it takes to improve himself. As they say, "Where there's a will, there's a way." My point is its not too far-fetched to say that he will soon be able to help us at some point.

This is false.

Completely unconfirmed, completely ridiculous.

Bradley is Danny's binky and he was looking like an absolute stud last year.


how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck was chris bosh?
