I think danny did a great job this past offseason. Saying that its obvious that for many reasons things havent worked out. I have been on the fence about how the Cs should handle this roster and i still feel the best bet it to try to replace Bass with a longer player who can give better help on defense and along with this increase sullys minutes.
With that being said i am still no apposed to Rondo or pierce being traded but it would have to be for a hard to attain asset.
The toughest postition to fill in the Nba is a legitimate center piece big man. What I mean by this is a player who is either a legit Center or big PF who can dominate both ends of the floor on a nightly bases. Currently I can think of a few young players who fit this (or project to fit) this description. Cousins, Favors, Monroe, Drummond, A Davis, and
. These are the players I no hesitation trade Rondo from. 6'9+ long athletic skilled biggest are just so rare that when they are available you have to jump.
If one of the affor mentioned Bigs was attanable then I would also consider moving Pierce for a replacement at PG. Ideally I would prefer a 6'3 + scoring point to pair with Avery. I invision Averys ideal role as one similare to Eric Snow. Where Snow was the Big PG who guarded SGs while AI guarded the point, Avery would be great guarding the point next to a bigger scoring PG.
Trades like Rondo for lowry and denvers wings or pierce for Gay seem like to much of latteral moves to me.
Dream situation ( I know its not happening)
rondo nets us Favors
pierce nets us Bledsoe
