The problem is the Celtics really need a player like David Lee, David West, Paul Millsap, Josh Smith, Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Anderson Varejao, LaMarcus Aldridge, Al Jefferson, Tyson Chandler, or Carl Landry.

I.e., an All-Star or borderline All-Star.

I'm not sure I see how the Celtics are going to get a player like that.

Exactly (although I would take Landry off that list).  The C's problem isn't at the bottom of their rotation, its at the top.  And if you are going to solve it, its not going to be with another garbage player.

Fair enough, but the vast majority of those listed above are far from realistic, while guys like Jefferson and Lee are questionable from a a fit and +/- POV.

I'm all for Millsap, but he'll be in high demand and we don't have a 1 to send to Utah. Maybe we could create a 30-team with an available PG like Sessions or Ridnour going to Utah -- but most of those teams would prefer Millsap to our pieces.

Maybe something like this:

Jeff Green for Jason Thompson and Aaron Brooks.

I think it makes much more sense for SAC than Lee.

I'd then look to trade Bass to Charlotte for Desagna Diop and Jeffrey Taylor.

Why does Green make more sense than Lee?  Sacramento has enough volume shooters already.  Green would be just another guy who needs the ball in his hands to be useful.

You're suggesting that Sacto would not be above making such a dumb move.  ;D

Problem is that we have to match dollar for dollar on to be under the apron. Which in hindsight makes me think we should've overpaid Allen and used the 3M mini-exception on a big. We'd be hitting the luxury tax with this, but it would make it much easier to make trades. Plus, it's not as though we would have cap space for FA's the next few seasons anyways.

This takes that into consideration because if you take Collins out of the deal then the trade fails due to using the MLE.
