I posted this topic last week and I really feel that the Celtics will not trade Pierce, Garnett, or Rondo. I think only player they will try and trade is Brandon Bass. But i do like this time of year when u hear all kinds of rumors and ppl propose their own trades

Sure. Because why have one PF when you can have zero.

No trades is the best option going forward
Jeff Green - Top 5 SF

Yeah I can see Terry or Lee moved, but not Bass.

Barring a complete blow up moving KG/Pierce. If that happens all bets are off as the C's could easily just be fielding d-leaguers if they need to once that happens.

He signed a SF, two PFs, and three Cs in FA.

(Green, Bass, Wilcox, KG, Collins, Darko)

He also drafted a PF & a C

(Sullinger/Melo)

That's 8 of 15 roster spots on forwards and Cs this offseason alone.

I'm hoping we can use our first round pick to get a Center. This years draft is weak!

Insuring we will neither win a title or start an overdue rebuilding.

Being a middle of the road team in the NBA is the worst place to be. Even if it means being awful for a season or two, I would prefer that to season after season of being the 6th to 8th seed yet never being a real contender. The way to improve is through the lottery.

This years draft is not "weak". It has no real clear cut number one for sure. No one player that can turn around a franchise. However the draft is deep. Particularly at shooting guard and small forward. Which is an area need for us to be sure.

Centers are overrated, unless they're truly good. Only like Howard, Hibbert, Pekovic, Hickson (not really even), Gasol, Davis...

Sure. Because why have one PF when you can have zero.

  Bass for Reddick, KG for Bledsoe and Butler, waive Wilcox and Collins. All small ball, all the time.

Last summer Danny basically set up the team's contract structures to go forward for 2-3 years, so the idea that it will be easy to blow it upnow and rebuild is pretty shaky. Getting rid of KG and PP won't help much for next year's weak draft and they's still have too much talent even then to get high lottery picks the year after. After Pierce's contract expires in 2013-14, 5 contracts expire tjhe following year including RR, KG, BB, Jet and AB.  Besides, who says we can't contend next year?

Can't move those either, you're running out of guards.

It's pretty much big trade or no trade.

Yeah, why should we have one of the best defensive players of all time, when we can get a scrub and a backup pg for him? ^^
