it would be nice if we could somehow get him without trading either bradley or sully. maybe a package of bass and some first round picks or something.
The Suns are looking to dump Gortat's contract. Bass comes with a longer obligation and more money overall on his deal.

The Suns are not looking to dump Gortat's contract -- his deal is one of the most reasonable in the league.

They're looking to trade a good player on a good contract who hates playing there.

We need Terry's shooting to much. Other than PP, he is our only other consistent 3 point and clutch shooter.

Don't agree. He's expendable for a starting NBA 5, especially when it means we can move KG back to the 4 for significant stretches.

Bradley and Lee's defense is excellent on the perimeter. And I am amazed with Sullinger's rapid growth over the past month. I'd hesitate to part with any of those 3 players, all of which are on nice contracts.

So far i am content to see this Celtic roster make a run. If something spectacular falls from the sky, sure. But I really, really like these 3 players.

A lot rests on Wilcox's shoulders. Will he be healthy enough to keep Collins on the bench when the C's play big teams?

At this point the only player I'm looking to deal for an upgrade would be Bass. Gotta keep Bradley, would also like to keep sully and even Lee. If it came down to a team wanting bass and lee plus picks for their center than I do it I guess. But lee has been good for us.

I disagree with you disagreeing. In order for a starting NBA 5 to be most effective, you need to space the floor for him with outside shooters.

Furthermore KG at the 4 doesn't work as a 1 on 1 defender. Too slow for stretch 4s. Let's face it, the whole league is playing stretch 4s these days.

I, too, am starting to like Lee more. If the Cs keep playing as they have been the last 3 games, I don't want to get rid of any of them ... yet I would love to have another legit 7-footer such as Gortat, or even Dalembert or Mozgov, for insurance if nothing else, because as much as I love Wilcox, he's injury prone.

Maybe I'm just too sentimental, but I want to hang on to Bradley and Sully, and even Fab. But I guess I'd be okay with trading Fab and draft picks (if anyone would take that deal) for a solid C.

Not trying to bash Terry but he has been terrible.

If you are convinced that he will become extremely effective than I can agree otherwise he brings almost nothing else to the table. If we are looking for 3 point shooting I'm sure we can find someone else to spread the floor

Call me crazy,  but I'd still take a chance on Beasley.  Play him primarily at the 4 and an environment with tons of vets can get through to him. He's still pretty young at 23.

I like Beasley as well. He just hasnt ever been in the right environment. His surroundings determine his success and being on lottery teams isnt helping. Being on a contender would rejuvenate his career imo.

I think Fab Melo may be way better than Gortat in 2 years time. Let's remember, Gortat is currently averaging 11 points and 8 rebounds a game. He is good, not great.

If we could get Beasely or Dudley and Gortat for somethig like Jeff Green, Bass and a 1st round pick I'd consider the trade for Gortat.

But I still think Green is going to be a really good fit on this team as it gets more and more uptempo as Pierce and KG go the next 1-2 years from now...

I'd really like to do something more along the lines of a couple picks for Dalembert or just some smaller move to get one more half decent 7 footer in here.

I dont' want to trade Melo yet either - his ceiling could be high. Much higher than Gortat's.

Won't comment on the above. My point remains correct: Gortat would be considerably more valuable to the Cs than Terry is.

If Phoenix called up today and offered a straight up Gortat for Terry swap, Ainge would take it 7 days a week and twice on Sunday.

Jason terry is going to win playoff games for us. That's why he got the 2nd LOB trophy tattooed on his arm. In the regular season we can't expect to fully see or expect to see come playoff time. He's a post season warrior and an important piece to this teams hopes for a title
Practice? Whatchu talkin about practice?

On an unrelated note, I read the Knicks have shown interest in Kenyon Martin with Sheed's lingering injury.
