Gortat/Bradley merged thread. (the one and only)
« on: November 24, 2012, 10:23:31 AM »
I am in that like 10% of the Celtic fans who favor this trade, and my reasons are that:

- Mickaël Piétrus may serve as a good defense replacement and he would only cost a vet.min

- Our major problems are defense, rebounding and the lack post-threats. Gortat MAY serve out our solution

- Other pieces may include Lee&Melo. And if, I.F., Green doesn't get this much consistent, then include him instead.(Balance the trade money)

- Untradeable pieces in my opinion are: Rondo, Pierce, Kevin, Bass, Sullinger, Joseph, Barbosa, Terry,  Wilcox, Collins(idk, but i like this guy), Green(if he becomes a '9million' player)

Green's not going anywhere, and you saw why last night. He'll get it.

As for Bradley, he remains a largely unproven player with a small sample size of productive play and significant ongoing health questions that we can replace with this roster.

I'm fine with moving him for inside help.

I am strongly in favor of acquiring Gortat, too.

I do think that there are a lot more than 10% of us who are for acquiring Gortat, even at the expense of Bradley.

I also think that we can acquire Gortat without Bradley being included.

Just wanted to put this to a poll and see how many of us are for or against trading Bradley in a deal that would get us Gortat if this was the only deal the Suns would accept.

Would hate to give up on Bradley, he MAY become a special player, but Gortat gives us what we need NOW.

I agree with this.  And while I voted yes, I do so very reluctantly.

Is there an "argh my head, it hurts" option?

I want Gortat but I know it will take Avery to get him. And all posters convinced me that Avery is very important to us.

Argh! My head!

we were an amazing team with bradley starting for us. he has that something that makes the whole team play better. Not sure the trade would be a net positive for us.

I dont think you can easily replace his defense....if you trade bradley, you likely start Terry the rest of the season and that is a downgrade defensively

well, if the starting lineup when bradley is back plays like they did with him in it last season, I dont really see it as a net positive...you also likely have to give up someone like Bass/sully to make the salaries work. so you are giving up 2 good/reliable players for one above average center.

as we saw last night all this team may need to start clicking is just some time....Wilcox seems to be doing a good job of spelling KG/rolling to the basket

Big men are always far more valuable than little men, especially when the little man is the one that is always hurt.  You make the trade in a second, don't give it a second thought, and don't ever look back and laugh your way to the bank.

I've been a big proponent of trying to get Gortat, but, still, I abstained from voting. 

I wish there was a "Maybe" option.  After Rondo, Pierce, and Garnett, the Honey Badger is the player I would hate to lose the most.  I'm hoping Danny can make a deal for Gortat without having to give up Avery.

The untradeable list for the win now team has three names, Rondo, KG and Pierce.




I am for the move that brings a player like Gortat here.  Celtics are not going to "out small" the Heat.  They need strong starting big men.

Danny Ainge isn't going to panic and make this trade because we're one game over .500 thirteen games into the season! Bradley will instantly make us a better defensive team as soon as he returns. Terry can return to his natural 6th man role. Wilcox and Green still aren't 100%, but they are looking stronger every week. Sullinger has been solid so far and hes starting to make some big plays for us. We're suffering the growing pains now but we'll be a much better team come playoff time!

If anyone is the odd man out its Courtney Lee. He becomes expendable once Bradley returns. If Lee+Bass+2013 1st round pick isn't enough for Gortat and filler then we're not buying.

Yes, though I'd rather see us cut into our big man depth, like Bass + Sully.  I wouldn't mind Lee and Sully either, nor Lee and Bass if it meant keeping a 1st rounder.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale
