Sorry, but never trade Pierce.

his legs are gone man. I think KG could stay with us longer TBH.

Probably, but I'd try him in a 20 min 6th man role pretty quickly.  I think we need to see what we have with JG as a go-to guy sooner rather than later.  Ego's be darned at this point, Paul's huge one included.

Pierce, Green, Bass + first rounder

for

Rudy Gay, Zac Randolph, Pondexter

Memphis clears cap room, still has Gasol inside and can play Green and the 4 with Pierce at the 3.
Bass comes in off the bench much like Speights did.
We get a win now power forward and replace an overpaid swing man with a better overpaid swingman and a stretch forward in Pondexter.

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

Throw in Terry for Bayless, too. There's our PG for the rest of the year.

I'm not really interested in anything roster wise, maybe if they have another teams pick?

Ditto.

 For that matter, Memphis isn't going to gut their roster to get Pierce. They are doing well without him but , presumably, would like to add him to help put them over the top.

I don't believe Memphis has any picks though (not even their own).  I think the most likely of all the Boston-Memphis trade scenarios I've seen is just a straight up Gay for Pierce deal.

PP has earned over $137 million over his career here in Boston.  I have loved Pierce as a celtics, am extremely grateful for how hard he has played for this franchise and everything he has done for this community, and don't wish for a bad situation for him, but I feel very strongly that we owe him nothing else than we are contractually obligated to owe him.

I hate to see PP go, but seeing him turn the ball over and get striped when he's driving and front rimming shot is getting kinda hard to watch.

Now if they can pull a three way off with Atlanta

Memphis Out: Gay
Memphis In: Pierce

Atlanta Out Smith and Kover
Atlanta in Gay and Bass

Boston Out: Pierce and Bass
Boston In: Smith and Kover

Kover would actually give us a guy that could spread the floor and Smith Helps KG on D.

And then maybe after PP contract is up with Memph he could head back over for KG's last season for a run coming off the bench if we are in good shape

Personally I'd really prefer that we trade him to a good situation if we do end up trading him.  If not Boston, then I want to see him in a place where he can contend for a title.

Aside from that, I agree with what you said.

Maybe Chicago?  We could try to pry that Charlotte pick from them.

Imagine the Bulls closing with this lineup:

Rose
Pierce
Deng
Boozer/Gibson
Noah

That's pretty sick.

  It wouldn't fit under the salary cap.

Yeah, right? I feel like we should trade our 2nd round pick for cp3 while we're at it.

No way.  Dwight isn't worth the trouble, and Danny is a genius with 2nd rounders.
