During the day today I was just thinking; What if all the trade rumors actually went through?
The rumors that I particularly have in mind is, of course, those involving Josh Smith, Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan.
I know what you all would say about trading KG and Pierce, but why not get the best value for them, while we can?
Now to the trades (I've tried to make some realistic trades which involved KG and Pierce.)
Kevin Garnett + Jason Collins + top 20 protected 1st round pick.
DeAndre Jordan + Eric Bledsoe.
Josh Smith + Johan Petro (Expring contract).
These trades would ultimately leave us with a potential squad like this:
PG; Rajon Rondo/Eric Bledsoe/Leandro Barbosa/
SG; Avery Bradley/Courtney Lee/Jason Terry
SF: Jeff Green/Terrence Williams (If we choose to keep him)
PF: Josh Smith/Jared Sullinger/Brandon Bass/Wilcox
C: DeAndre Jordan/Johan Petro/Fab Melo
(I know that if these trades goes through we will probably also have to give up Jared Sullinger etc.)
But for now, would you be disappointed if we ended up with a lineup like this?
Do you think that this team would be able to compete for the title in a few years?
