I would give up Avery to get Josh Smith, but not Gortat. This is based strictly on talent going out vs, talent coming back.

Can't take you seriously after seeing your untradeable list.

I would not trade Bradley for Gortat, we need Bradley's guard defense more than we need Gortat's contributions, particularly with Terry in our roster.

Yeah if danny can get gortat without trading bradley man..........we'd beat the heat for sure unless lebron does something super inhuman again. If we give up AB for him.......i mean, we could be better we could be worse. I voted no of course. I want gortat but not at the expense of giving up bradley. I have spoken.

I'd hate to see him go but other teams want assets.

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.

 no idea how much Bradley will contribute after both shoulders operated on and the long layoff. Gortat has stats to back himself up with. Gortat makes us a contender, Bradley doesn't.

That's the scenario I'm afraid.

We could really use Gortat. Another last line defender and a solid rebounder an scorer. Bradley will also help us with his hut down defense and preven penetration.

I was convinced yesterday that we don't need Gortat. But know its playing in my head again that he'll help us win now.

Of course we don't NEED gortat. This is just typical celtics fans overreacting and needing a new toy to play with so they can sleep well at night until we lose the next game and they panic again. We will be just fine once AB returns. I want gortat but we definitely don't need him. Especially at the expense of messing up our chemistry and trading away our very promising elite defensive guard along with whoever else.

I think we can get Gortat without giving up Bradley. I think it would need to be a package of Sullinger, Lee and picks.

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.
How is 1 good game as a Celtic any more Proven then what Bradley has done.

I haven't panic once this season.  I posted that patience is the key to this team.



But if I see a move that can improve the Celtics chance to win now, I am all for it.  Getting a top level starting big (and that is what Gortat is), it improves the Celtics chances of beating the Heat in the playoffs. 


It wasn't Wade that killed the Celtics in the playoffs.  It was the return of Bosh that forced KG away from the paint on defense.  If there was another big down there that could close the lane for Lebron while still fitting into the offense, that is a huge bonus.

I'm going to say yes. 

I like Bradley a lot.  I think he can be a special player. 

However, what a lot of people are ignoring is that you have to give up something of worth to get something of worth. 

While we'd all obviously rather trade Bass, Lee and a second round pick for Gortat, Phoenix obviously is going to want to have value for a center who is averaging a double double and over two blocks per game. 

Guys like that don't grow on trees. 

And given our current depth at the guard spot with Lee, Barbosa, and Terry and the fact that Gortat is young enough to still be a building block, I think it's the right move to make. 

With Rondo, Green, Sully, and Gortat, you have a nice core for the future.  And we'd only really be left with a hole at the 2/3 spots, which is far easier to fill than the 5 spot.
