On paper, this deal would make a lot of sense.  But I just don't want to trade KG after everything he's done here and his commitment to the team.  I kinda hope he flatout refuses to be traded.

I'm against this trade.  DJ is a very poor man's D12 with a worse FT% and more posing. Can't play him at the end of games and outside of lobs for dunks, he has no offense. Very overpaid at $11MM for next season, this is subtraction by addition.  Bledsoe's another story, but he's a poor PG and AB's a better defender at the SG.  Bledsoe's a FA after next season and we'd be spending a chunk more money to keep him then without having been able to play him much more than the Clippers have in order to establish his real value. 

I'd rather take a shot with KG for 1 or 2 more seasons and then rebuild with free cap room.  I also agree with the sentiment that the trade takes us into mediocrity, which is the worst place to rebuild from.  Ainge restructured the team last summer to go 2-3 years more and then blow up.  Getting these two players certainly doesn't make us in the interim good enough to contend or bad enough to get high draft choices.

This team just won 8 of their last 9 games. WHY would we want to blow it up, exactly?
Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

I hope this ends discussion.  I don't think it will.

He said no circumstance.  That is the talk we have heard before though, Pierce and KG go together.

I just hope this is more baseless rumor.  Woj and more credible sources being involved obviously makes it different.  I just want to see them both stay.

Ainge is a good GM and will explore all options. This is one of his options. Although, this deal is unlikely I don't think the rumors go away since he will probably be talking KG up until the deadline.

I'm not shocked at the comment. I don't think KG would ever bail on his teammates as long as they're still here. He'd feel like he was leaving guys behind/pulling a Ray.

KG won't leave first. BOS has to unload Pierce first, then KG will change his mind and not the other way around.

Pierce for Barnes then KG for Jordan and Bledsoe.

The Jet maybe unloaded also to Denver for example for some key bench guys.

After this, Rondo won't be back either and traded once he is fully healthy.

Celts full blown up lineup if it were to happen

Starting - Jordan - Green - Barnes - Bradley - Bledsoe
Bench - Lee - Bass - Sully - Collins - Melo - G - F (new players)

We would still be able to nail 7th or 8th spot in a weak east conference
Surprising players happen all the time -- that's why they're called surprises.
