Because the Celtics should sit on their hands until they find a C?


Running the Clippers with Redz.

I like what Lee brings, but I would move him for J.J. 

Redick is simply a better player.  A lot of folks assume J.J. doesn't play D because of his physical appearance, but he's actually turned himself into an above-average defender.
I was really impressed a few years back when he did a great job against Ray in the playoffs.
Exactly what I was thinking

Nothing to be impressed about. Guarding Ray is not difficult with the right gameplan. Just ask our old friend Wally.
He foug throug a barrage of screens, that isn't really about a gameplan.

It was commitment to defend him, rather than defensive ability. If you're lazy, Ray will make you pay. Else, he's not difficult.
Lazy or get drawn away by rotations and other help responsibility.

Exactly, but you gameplan him by putting a man on him to shadow him and not help in other defensive schemes and Ray will be a non-factor, other than creating spacing, in the offense.

It's what the Cavs did too, very succesfully, with him... and they had freaking Wally Szczerbiak defending him.

Regardless the point was that stopping Ray as a defender, in the last few years, is nothing to be impressed about in my opinion.

If it happens, Reddick is only a tweak.
We need more than a tweak.

I would call picking up Redick a step in the right direction, and not just a "tweak."  Semantics I know, but it is a start, certainly not an ending. 

How about Jeff Green and a 2nd rounder for Redick (who Orlando will likely lose for nothing) and Nicholson??

Plus a consistent perimeter shooter.

*titter*

I'm down with that move. And anything that adds Reddick to this woeful collection of outside shooting.

I'll worry about center later.

Just for the record, we need consistent scoring more than we need a big.

We still have the 8th best defense in the league last I checked, but we can't score to save our lives.

Reddick gives us some of the big scoring boost we need.  If we can after that we try to add a big too...but scoring is priority.

Roy, I know that we all think that, but maybe the Magic don't. From what I understand there is someone there in basketball operations who was in the Sonics front office when they drafted Jeff Green, and thinks a lot of him.

Maybe instead of Nicholson, we ask for Harkless, whom they would be more likely to give up than Nicholson, especially  since Harkless plays the same position, SF, as Green.

Boston gets: Redick and Harkless
Orlando gets: Green and a pick if necessary
