After this nice little winning streak that could extend further, are you guys expecting anything tomorrow (once Bass and Green become eligible to be traded)?

I think Bass is one of (if not the) most tradable player on our team, so I could see him being moved. The question is just how soon. I no longer think there's any urgency. A month ago many of us were counting down the minutes until tomorrow. Anyone else agree we can just ride the wave for a little now?

In other words, I don't expect anything tomorrow.


Starters: D.Rose - W.Matthews - N.Batum - T.Gibson - J.Noah
Reserves: J.Nelson - A.Bradley - J.Butler - B.Diaw - M.Raduljica

I don't think any significant moves will happen (with any teams) until closer to the deadline.  Trades just rarely happen this early.

I would really like to see the Cs move sooner than the deadline. That way the new players have more time to fit in.

I also would mentally prepare yourself for someone other than the guys we want sent out to be traded. 

Chances are, some of the guys we don't want to be traded, will be the ones to go, if Danny does make a deal.

I think Sulliger's growth as a player and recent production would make Ainge more than willing to trade Bass

nothing will happen until close to the end of the trading deadline, if then.

OTOH, Sullinger's growth as a player and recent production might make him worth more in a trade than Bass.

With Danny as GM you simply can not fall in love with players. To him they are either core or chips and you just don't know which players *he* puts in which category.

We aren't gonna make a move after a 5 game win streak. Danny has a month to really see what this team has to offer. He'll be working the phones and getting deals in place. The question of whether or not he'll pull the trigger is at least two and more likely three weeks down the road.

I do agree with your time-frame, but if he makes a trade, I hope it's in the midst of a win streak, or at least when the team "looks" stable and strong.

Don't wanna trade from a position of weakness (read losing streak) or when looking desperate.

IMO...  nothing

believe DA is satisfied to sit on his winning streak and see how these next 4-5 games go.... ie..are the C's for real or are they flash in the pan.

I imagine then team feels the same...long as they are winning they may remain together . 

The C's seem to finally have a Chemistry.
