Minor moves involving role players.  Wouldn't do anything too drastic.

If Danny gets a chance to move Rondo for the #1 pick plus multiple future picks, I think he would have to do it.  I don't think he'll be valued that highly, though.

This is the only chance Cs have to rebuilt the team. Trading Rondo is the best option, keeping in mind that KG and PP sooner or later will retire.

No, Rondo won't be valued that highly.  Very few players are.  CP3 probably even isn't.

But, even if we could, it would depened on how great the  potential of likely top prospect was.  This year, no way.

I say drop the bomb. As fun as it will be to watch this team fight for the 8th seed and battle Miami in the first round the future needs to take priority. I don't want this team to bottom out like the per Paul pierce years. We should have got mayo for ray, lets not make the same mistake. If Paul can go to a contented then send him ( maybe to spurs for Jackson splitter and 1st?). If kg can land us Bledsoe then ainge needs to do it. Then figure out rondo or Bledsoe in the offseason.

In the post-KG/Pierce world, how are we going to become a contender again without bottoming out?

A team built around guys like Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, Jared Sullinger, O.J. Mayo, and Eric Bledsoe isn't going to contend.  Unless we acquire a superstar somewhere along the line, we're going to be stuck in mediocrity for a long time.  Normally, the best chance at a superstar is through the draft.
Begs the question:

Just how high a draft pick could Rajon Rondo get the Celtics in the coming draft? If reports by June sound good, could sending Rondo out for a top pick this year be worth a trade and is there a team out there stupid enough to do something like that?

I'd like to see us get another big.

Other than that, I am almost inclined to say keep the team as is.

You see how much better Green, Lee, Terry and Barbosa are playing.

Why mess up a good thing?

Interesting tidbit I heard on CSN SportsTonight this evening; according to Jackie Mac, her impression on Wyc's thoughts on trading Rondo are "over my dead body".

Not sure if that means anything or not, just found it interesting.  Generally speaking Jackie is one of the most "plugged in" in Boston sports.

This move, does mean anything(does not have any sense) in order that team will look better.

Pierce and Collins to Denver:

for


Gallanari, Brewer, and Mozgov


or

Pierce to Indiana:

for

Granger and Tyler Hansbrough

No to Granger. Those knees to me scream "Warning".

I don't like the Denver trade, but would want McGee (I can't believe I am saying this) rather than Mozgov, but wouldn't do either if I had my druthers.

My opinion is to trade Rondo to get another big

Exactly, to contend you need superstars, and right now we have NONE, with RR injured! That's why to start rebuilding NOW, and not a year or two years from now! KG and PP aren't getting younger or better than they are right now, so their value keeps dropping. You get the best potential young players and draft pics you can for them, and move on!
Danny can only work his magic with trade chips and draft picks, and with KG and PP value dropping after the trade deadline, and with only 1 draft pick this year, I just don't think you can wait!

Probably, stay as we are. The C's are unlikely to get any trade offers that will be worth making, short or long term.

I'd love to pick up a rotation level center, though, but don't see how that would happen. Maybe somebody useful will be bought out...but I doubt (a) that will happen and (b) we could get him if it did happen.

Bass for Ty Thomas could shore up our frontline.

Sign Fesenko or Eddy Curry if they are available FAs.

Trade to acquire Wilson Chandler, possibly for JT or Courtney plus picks. Use him as SG/SF.

I'd want a pick from the 2014 draft...That one is supposed to be stacked.
