Acquiring Bledsoe, Jordan, and Josh Smith would not be about fielding a contender.

Bledsoe - Bradley - Green - Smith - Jordan

That would indeed be a fun team to watch.  They'd probably defend fairly well but also have a really hard time scoring.

However, every one of those players (even Green, if he can live up to his 'potential') is a future trade asset.

Yes that's what I think fans aren't realizing. These moves would be about gathering assets

Exactly. That's what the 2007 5th overall pick (Green) and Delonte were. That's what Theo Ratliff's expiring deal, Al Jefferson, and Gerald Green were.

And who will be playing the part of Kevin Garnett next offseason? Or will that once in a generation talent be available in 2015? 2016? 2020? How long are you willing to wait?
Kevin Love would be my guess.

Love does not have the talent to turn a franchise around. He is not and will never be on the same level as Garnett.

Yes but it won't take all of the Celtics assets to acquire him. Meaning they will be in a much better position going forward from now than they were before they acquired KG.
DKC:  Rockets
CB Draft: Memphis Grizz
Players: Klay Thompson, Jabari Parker, Aaron Gordon
Next 3 picks: 4.14, 4.15, 4.19

How many teams are able to turn mid-tier talent into a HoFer? DA did it twice in the same offseason.

I wouldn't build my franchise in the likelihood that could happen again.

Nobody is blowing LAC away with offers for Bledsoe or Jordan (and his bad contract). Neither is ATL for Smith. They are not players worth blowing things up for. Someone like Curry or DMC you'd have to consider seriously, but not these names.

More to the point, who will be playing the past of the super star closer that is, or was, Paul Pierce?

Many on here will tell you that's Rondo, but they can't admit to themselves he is really the guy that inbounds it to that type of player.

Ainge's master plan: get LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in Green.

You heard it here first.

How many 'rumblings' were there before the Perkins trade happened?  ;D
I'm guessing we will be surprised again on the deadline... hopefully it would be positive..

So what? These are not elite players and will not garner you elite assets in return.

I love how all these serious reporters are digging up rumors during the important trade deadline period and celtics 'insider' sherrod breaks nothing.

That PP and KG are getting traded to the Clippers in a 3-way trade involving the Clippers, Hawks, Celtics...

We will get Josh Smith, Bledsoe and D. Jordan and post the worst ft% in the history of the NBA next season when Rondo is healthy.

I'm disgusted.

I think if that were the case, then Jordan and Bledsoe would likely go to Atlanta, not Boston.

Haha yeah this was my thought too...

Celtics trade Pierce and KG to the clips, we get Smith, Bledsoe and Jordan...And the Hawks get nothing!

If we can move Pierce for Smith I'll give one of you $10. There has to be one of our young assets involved or I don't see the point for ATL.

Along these lines would be perfect though:
http://basketball.realgm.com/tradechecker/saved_trade/6242721

Clips get Jordan and Pierce's expiring deal. Not sure they can get a better offer than Jordan and a big expiring for Smith. So far I've heard Nets with a Hump/Brooks trade and that is it.

We start the rebuild with a bang though. Smith and Bledsoe are big assets and Harris is a decent backup point that is expiring. I'm almost sure this is the best offer we'll see for our vets.

The Clippers get a massive upgrade at center and lose Bledsoe doing it. That's cheap if you ask me.

Im glad that trade fails on the trade checker...Cause me no likey.

Lol. I suppose they could get Odom's expiring, Melo, LAC draft pick, BOS draft pick? They'd have a lot of money to play with this summer (and up to 4 first round draft picks this year).

Don't think they'd go for that but I guess it's a possibility.
