Aldridge to Boston
Bradley, Sullinger, Humphries and 2 firsts

Aldridge is a top 3 PF in this league, despite what our green shaded glasses show him as
Portland won't give him away for Peanuts.
Then try Wallace, Crawford and a pick for Asik

Rondo, Brooks, Green, Aldridge, Asik
That team contends next year as top seed in West
Using leftover picks toget a SG in the draft
Can't stop, Rondo!

for me it was Lee, Bass and Sullinger with teh two picks and I am not sure that gets it done. Depends on the picks for sure.

I guess my biggest concern with this is not the Green, Rondo, Aldridge core but that Aldridge really needs a true center next to him kinda like KG. KG had his most success with Perk next to him IMHO. Sure you could argue numbers of one year vs the next, just my opinion.

Not sure we have one out of the Melo, Olynyk, etc that would get the job done. Forget playing Aldridge big minutes at the 5 in a small line up with Humphries, Bass, Sullinger or Green at the PF. Maybe if we had a Gasol or Z-bo type then OK.

I think we would be better if we went after Omer Asik or Marc Gasol with a few players and picks. Then with the depth we have left out of Humphries, Olynyk, Bass, etc at the PF we are much better.

no way Portland is going to accept Bass and Lee. They would want Humpheries expiring contract

Something like

Bos sends: Humpheries(exp)Sully, 2 1st's
Por sends: Aldridge

Then send TE and Bradley to Houston for Asik

PG: Rondo    / Pressy
SG: Lee      / Brooks
SF: Green    / Wallace
PF: Aldridge / Bass
 C: Asik     / KO

I  REALLY like that roster !

Lee is an above average starting SG and Brooks is a great offensive spark off the bench. That is a very solid looking lineup. The only issue is that there is no way Portland trades LMA for Sully, two picks, and an expiring. It's a fair return value, but they're looking to make a lateral move, not blow things up.
