Rodney Stucky apparently is very unhappy in Detroit. I guess he has been having issues with Lawrence Frank.

Think Detroit would do this?

Green, Lee, and our first this year (lottery protected)
for
Prince and Stucky

It would be a help us win now trade. Personally I feel sticky would be a better pg then anyone have at the moment and next year he could be our sixth man.

Thoughts?

Absolutely not! I would want picks from them for that package.

I don't see Stuckey as any kind of upgrade over Lee now that Lee will be getting starter level playing time. Plus giving up a more athletic small forward that just showed that he can assert himself in Rondo's absence, AND give up our first rounder.

Gotta say no thanks.

You're not going to get a better package from another team for those two.

It's Jeff Green and Courtney Lee were talking about, not Magic and Kareem.

No thanks. Green is better than Prince at this stage in Prince's career. Stuckey is not a great improvement from our current roster of guards;

I want nothing to do with Stuckey. Bad attitude, injury prone. If he's strictly contract filler, and viewed as an expiring contract, maybe.

I love Tayshaun Prince, but his best years are behind him. He'd become, what? The starting PF next to Pierce and Garnett? Or a sixth/seventh man?

I would likely do it if you switch Prince with Maxiell (in his last year at 5 million)

  Solving your point guards with Rodney Stucky is somewhat like solving your point guard problems with Tyreke Evans. If crappy teams look for new point guards to get you out of the spot it's unlikely you'll be great there for a good team. We'd likely be just as well off using Terry/Lee/Bradley at the point.

Stuckey is a third guard, combo type.

Unfortunately he doesn't appear to be happy in that role, or have adjusted to playing it all that well.

I still remember when his agent was declaring Stuckey as good as Rondo and that Rondo's contract was the starting point of any discussion....

I wouldn't give up the pick.

Getting another backup PF type (Maxiell) and Stuckey isn't worth losing a potential talent on a rookie contract.

I don't think moving Lee's deal should be that hard in the future if we go that way. (Green's another story...)

I wouldn't include a pick either.


I am OK with moving Lee if he is as unhappy with playing with Rondo as it is suggested.


The more important part of this is that in two seasons (when Pierce comes off the board), the projected team salary (and yes I know, there are other things involved to change that) will drop from 52 million to 37.4 million with Bass and Terry (as well as KG) being on their last years of their contracts.  It sets the Celtics up to do a major reload around Rondo that year.

How about this instead:

http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bf6hpyw

I think we'd have to give Detroit our 2013 first rounder and to be perfectly honest I'm not sure Stuckey is worth the $8.5M next year AND giving up a 1st rounder but it's a more sound trade than giving up Lee and Green just to get older.

I'm unsure if Stuckey is much better at point than AB or Lee is. I think he's better but I'm not sure he's enough of an upgrade to move any of our assets. I might be willing to give up our 2013 pick if we can get out of the last year of Bass's contract and save $1M in the process. That seems like a worthwhile use of our pick in a draft that is projected to be very weak. Pistons are stacked at PF but if they are done with Stuckey's nonsense it might be a worthwhile swap.
