If we are going the rebuild route, that is a pretty good deal indeed.

It's certainly hard to imagine them getting a better one for KG, considering the circumstances.

IF the Cs decide to move forward with this -- which I'm increasingly depressed by despite my better judgement -- the last bit I'd push for is the Clips taking Bass for the expiring contract of Odom. So this:

If Chris Paul wants Garnett...maybe he could come to Boston?  ;D
Dang straight!

I don't care what Chris Paul wants. I don't care how much KG would help the Clippers. I care about the Boston Celtics, and I have yet to see a deal for KG that is beneficial to them.

If he wants to, KG appears to still be able to play at the level of the best defender in basketball until the end of next year. Getting a couple nice young players and a pick for him now is good, but having him for two years of playoffs is a certainty if you want it to be.

Add a good big now for Bass and this team looks solid and next years looks great. Its the better option

First let me start by saying I don't want to get rid of KG, especially before tomorrow nights game which I am attending!


but...would you trade KG for Jordan and Bledsoe plus pick and than move Jordan/Rondo for Howard in sign and trade prior to July 1st?

Net would be bledsoe/howard and pick for Rondo/KG

Than, we could actually move Bass/Green for Smith as well

Starting line up of
Bledsoe
Avery
Pierce
Smith
Howard

How about we trade Rondo for Chris Paul??????
The NBA is a very stupid, corrupt, and unethical league

And kiss any element of perimeter shooting goodbye.

Uh, no thanks.

what's the fascination with Eric Blesoe?  Is it just because he happens to be one of the only young expendable assets on a contending team?  I don't get it ... 

He's about as valuable as any late 1st rounder isn't he?

he's one of the most athletic and productive per minute point guards in the league. He's Bradley with offensive skills.

if Chris Paul is desperate enough to play with Kevin Garnett that the clippers are actually considering giving up something substantial for him... they ought to just trade Chris Paul to Boston instead.  It makes more sense than giving up quality young players for a few months of Garnett.

It's not that CP3 is desperate to play with KG, it's that he wants to add a big man who can shoot and defend to the core they already have in place there.

But we already have a top 5 point guard in Rondo and a very capable backup point guard in Avery Bradley.  Do we need a 3rd backup?... or would this be the precursor to a Rondo or Bradley trade?

It would be collecting valuable assets for a deal down the road instead of losing KG and Pierce and Ray for nothing.
