I think Gay for Pierce makes sense. Realistically, we have to think more about next year than this one. And going forward the difference between Gay and Pierce will only widen. I think we need to take advantage of Pierce's still very solid play, as well as the Grizzlies wanting to shed cap for next season, in order to acquire a player of Gay's caliber. We would have Rondo, Gay, Green, Bradley, Sullinger, Melo, Lee (still only 27), and the 15th pick in this year's draft (if we finish 8th in the ECF) as a very solid foundation. While it pains me to see Pierce wear a different jersey, this makes too much sense not to do.

I really doubt Ainge would trade KG within the division.However, how about this trade...KG & PierceforGranger, Hibbert, & pickshttp://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=b7tlgf8Indiana would immediately become the last team Miami would want to face in the playoffs and would have a starting lineup of:WestPierceKGHillGeorgeWhich would probably be the best defensive team in the league.As for us, we would move forward with:RondoHibbertGrangerGreenBradleySullingerMeloLee
Jeff Green has a below league average (for SF or PF) TS% of 51.1, but Gay has an abysmal 48.0.And Gay has a, gulp, max contract.No, thanks.
No Rudy Gay on a max contract.....we would become the Ben G. / Charlie V. sub-par Pistons.
I tought we were thinking about pierce for gay possibility... Maybe im wrong...Hoped for more interesting comments, but ok... Im stupid... You re right
If the Celts deal Pierce for Gay, wouldn't that help them compete for this year as much as it would help them "for the future"?I think a lineup of Bradley, Lee, Gay, Sullinger and KG is pretty darn good to just be a "rebuilding" team

It is too good to truly rebuild and not good enough to truly compete.
