Jalen Rose:C's should blow it up, KG to Spurs, PP to pacers
« on: February 01, 2013, 12:22:28 PM »


I actually made a thread about a similar trade with KG going to the spurs and Splitter and Jackson's expiring coming back to the c's.

Rose also thinks the c's should trade PP to the Pacers for Danny Granger. He would be a 13 mil expiring contract next season, but I don't see why the c's would care when they could simply waive PP for only 4 mil against the cap next year.

I would probably do the 1st trade, but not the PP one unless I am getting back expiring contracts and a pick or young player with upside.

Pierce and Collins for Granger and Tyler Hansbrough.

Yeah lets blow it up for crap instead of just waiting for things to work out and playing the year out.

We can't get any value.  No one who says this knows what they are talking about.

If the value is there, fine.  But this is dumb.

I'd rather just play it out, get cap space later and let the young guys play with the greats for another season.

Jackson is not in this trade for his ability, he's an expiring contract.

I'm all for blowing it up only if we get the right guys back tho. Even tho we aren't winning a championship I'm pretty confident we'll make the playoffs. Not like that means anything but still.

I would be delighted if Danny Ainge could get a player as good as Danny Granger for a 35 year old Paul Pierce.

I don't understand the upside for Indiana though.

I think it can mean something, as far as development and experience for the young guys.

I'd take good value over that but I just don't see it.  We can waive Pierce if we want and KG can retire, and very possibly will.  If KG doesn't he's still a great player to have.

Tiago Splitter's contract expires this summer. He'll be due a pay increase. Probably for a bit more than the MLE. Maybe $7 million per annum. Multi-year contract. Say a four year $26-30 million deal.

I think it be worth signing Splitter to that type of a contract. I think he'd be a good long term trade asset to keep hold of. A lot like Orlando did with Marcin Gortat.

Splitter's production would go way up playing alongside Rajon Rondo as the Celtics' starting center too. He'd probably be good for 16-18ppg and 8-9rpg in long minutes while being one of the league leaders in FG%. As a trade asset, he could fetch a very nice piece (player, prospect or lotto pick) down the road.

I wouldn't touch Granger right now.

Too much uncertainty and the ceiling has already been hit.

I don't understand the upside for Indiana though.

Pierce is a muuuuuccccch better player than Granger even at thirty five and I would much rather have Pierce. Not only is Granger coming of a significant injury but he has greatly declined in play and stats over the last two seasons.

I would only do the kg trade if we lose from now until the trade deadline. Splitter has potential to be a nice starter for years to come. Think of marc gasol. 1st pick is also nice. Also gives kg a chance to win another ring which I want. I wouldn't do the pierce to pacers trade though. We need a pg back at least. Pierce to clippers for Bledsoe, butler and 1st. That would give us 3 1st for a terrific pick. I'd also trade rondo for a package including another 1st. Possible to get 2 lotto or 1 top 5 like a Anthony Bennett at worse

2013 post blow up lineup

Starters - splitter, sully, green, ab, Bledsoe
Bench - high draft pick, Melo, lee, terry, bass. Waive butler, Jackson. Keep terry as the vet presence

Hire Jalen to be an assistant to Danny!!!

He makes sense - trade KG to a contender to put them over the top! (I kinda feel like KG will go down with an injury soon - I don't want it to happen but I do feel that way) - I would also hope that KG retires after THIS year so we don't have to play against him.

The PP trade - well not too sure about it....
I'd love to get Splitter and an expiring for next year....
