Now that about two years has passed since the trade and both players have not had any major impact on their teams, I'm curious to see how many people would trade Green to get Perkins back.  I think I would. 

I wanted to take a poll, but not sure how do the vote feature.

Absolutely not. We traded Perkins to fill a more valuable hole in our roster, and since then he's become a shell of who he was while in green.
At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

No -- Perk wouldn't help this team.

Perk is where he should be. On a title contender as a power based defensive center alongside a quick footed roaming help defender in Ibaka. Leave him be.

And it opened a new hole that hasn't been filled yet.  Courtney Lee as the backup 2/3 wouldn't be a hole, at least not nearly as much as Wafer and Pavlovic would have been.  In fact he'd be a huge upgrade over Marquis who was plugging that hole when we were the best team in the league.

Right, but you're not going to fill it with Kendrick Perkins. The hole opened when he got injured, not when he got traded.

What's the difference?

And how can you compare KG, Perkins, and Big Baby to KG, Perkins, Wilcox, Bass and Sullinger?

No.   Perkins is shot and damaged goods.

The difference that the player Perkins has become post-injury is not capable of filling the hole. Catch my drift yet?

And we traded Perkins after Marquis went down.

Which was what opened up the hole.

The hole at backup SF.

The hole that we traded Perkins to fill.

The hole that was filled by Jeff Green: To be a backup for Paul Pierce. Which we needed. Much more than Perkins.

It was the right trade at the time, and while we do need an upgrade at the center spot now, let's remember that we had Shaq and JO that year, both of whom were projected to return to the floor in good health later in the season--(We've got to keep hindsight out of this when we evalutate that trade)....


Perkins is not the droids we are looking for, and that's even before we get into his salary, and his diminished ability.

Honestly? They both stink. They're subtraction by addition at their salaries.

No, because Old Perk isn't going to be walking thru that door.

No hindsight needed when you are counting on two injury prone guys in their late 30's to help you late in the season. It was a huge gamble that backfired.

It's three years later and the C's still haven't replaced Perk's role. There's been a lane to the basket ever sense.
