I really hope PP and KG don't get traded. I'm going to be pretty displeased if we are not trying to load up for a run THIS YEAR.

And then we gonna overpay for Josh Smith after this season. No thanks.

Let's get away from this overrated player. If he ain't commanding maximum dollars, that's fine.

Hawks don't want long term mediocre salary for smith.

Thus Pierce is the only salary match that fits, unless Green has a convert in Ferry.

Bingo. They want youth and picks attached to a short term deal that allows them to maintain financial flexibility.

Let the Hawks trade Smith or keep him, whichever.  Then have Smith signed-and-traded here during the offseason for KG + filler/younger assets.  KG promptly retires (as an unofficial part of the deal that both teams are aware of in advance).  Ta-da!*


*may not work under new CBA, I pay minimal attention to that stuff.

From my understanding the sign and trade is a thing of the past.

Trade Pierce for Smith with the wink wink, behind closed doors idea that Atlanta won't be picking up his last year, he will be paid his $5 million and then can return for the MLE here next year.

It's a partially guaranteed final year, not a team option.  If Pierce is traded then waived, he can't return to the Celtics for a year after the trade.

It's still allowed, but much more costly for teams

I would do it, jeff green and smith running with rondo would be great.

Then if kg wants to get traded

Pg: Rondo   / bradley
Sg : bledsoe  / lee
Sf: green
Pf: smith   / sully
 C: jordan / melo

Not a contender, but would but fun to watch and really young

would be a nice young exciting team indeed. It would be a blast watching celtics games again. Fairly decent young squad with many assets to work with.

however if we are getting Smith i want him playing alongside Pierce Rondo and KG. thats going to be very difficult to make happen however.

Nope. You can still do it. Remember that's how we acquired Lee.

I will say if this is the blow up plan and we end up looking like this.

Bledsoe
Bradley/Lee
Green
Smith
Jordan

That is a crazy defensive/athletic team.

Not a thing of the past, but something that a team way over the cap can't do.

If an out for the year Rondo is good enough to land us Howard in Rumorville,then how about Barbosa and Sullinger for Smith.

This is what I am hoping:

Josh Smith wants to come to Boston and not go to the other teams (Bucks, Nets,'6ers, etc) that are pitching Ferry. He tells Ferry and the other teams that he won't sign with them so he will only be a rental for them.

Danny holds tight offering Green, Bass, Melo, Sully and this year's first. Ferry caves at the deadline to get something rather than nothing for Smith.

Ferry gets an athletic wing that he needs in Green, two youngsters with big upside, esp. Sully and a first. He swallows Bass to make the deal happen.

The key is JSmoove wanting to play in Boston.

If we are getting him to competete this year, we can't give up the Captain.

This is a borderline playoff time at best.  If the team gets broken up, I'd rather it be to get into the lottery.  This team is probably a little better than lottery material, and very far from being a contender.

On both ends? So Boston being over the cap in this scenario couldn't receive Smith from an under the cap ATL?
