If we part with Jeff Green -
Can someone PLEASE tell me who will then backup Paul Pierce?
My guess is that Jeff Green has played a significant part in Paul Pierces' resurgence here lately due to him backing up the Captain.
I'm starting to believe that this team does have some needs...if things don't change in late Jan early Feb with AB's return, I'd agree with some roster changes -
but NOT for Paul Pierce's backup.
If Pierce is going to be our Primary offensive weapon, with the way it's looking, then I'd want a quality backup behind him, and Jeff Green is it.
Please, Danny - don't shoot BOS in the leg by trading Jeff Green. Might as well blow it up, then. No one else is going to be dumb enough to give us any quality SF back in return with any Jeff Green trade.
What we'd be doing, I'm afraid, is playing Whack-A-Mole, lol...plugging one hole (a trade package involving Green), and getting back a decent Big (Gortat, JSmith, maybe?) - only to have a hole at backup SF.
There is not an Auerbachian answer for this, I'm afraid. I'm hopeful that AB's return to playing form in late Jan/early Feb will turn things around, but if they don't then I'm sure this team will look a bit different come trade time.
But, IMO, if Jeff Green is touched, then we might as well go nuclear with this team, I'm thinking.
