    Can't see GSstate giving up Jack. He's playing unreal right now, plus if Steph goes down with another ankle issue they'd be screwed without Jack

    Problem is there aren't many bigs out there, and their cost is extremely high.

    I thought the C's had a very solid offseason, with the acquisition of Terry along with some nice prospects acquired through the draft. I haven't seen them play very often, but it's unclear to me why they've struggled as much as they have. Rondo has been brilliant in the few games I've seen him play, garnett is still a productive big, and pierce still has a knack for hitting big shots late.

    This team has gotten a lot more mileage out of it's big three than I thought possible. It was clear this season was the last run for their two HOF'ers. I don't see a clear rebuilding path for this team, aside from cashing out on pierce and garnett.

    Grizzlies interested in Pierce for a playoff push now and for salary cap reasons next season.

    Lowry & Fields for Green & Bradley makes sense.

    TOR unloads Field's contract, they get a big upgrade at SF for only a bit more than they are paying Fields. And they get Bradley.

    BOS gets Lowry of course and Fields would actually give them another nice piece.

    1) Rebounding
    2) Low post scoring


    I believe Boston is 29th in rebounding. That's a huge issue, and has been since Perk has left. If they can swing a deal for a center, they'll be extremely dangerous.

    Problem is who's available?

    Gasol or maybe Pekovic?
    Miami is worse at rebounding than the Celts. The rebounding issue (offensive glass ignored specially is by design for them to get back on D - which is good, so pick your posion).

    Why do the Celts want old retread point guards?

    Much more interested in dealing Pierce, Terry, and Bass in 3 ways, and getting back a Bledsoe (so Rondo can be dealt next year), and a big looking for a max extension such as Jefferson.

    Getting into the 8th, 7th, or 6th seed this year is a ticket for a one and done. My idea puts them in the lottery - although no very high up this year.

    The PP/KG team is done, and it's been done since they lost the Finals to the Lakers. Please don't bring up last year with Rose and Bosh being the primary reason they got to game 7 of the ECF last year. A very meh Philly team took them to 7 for goodness sakes.

    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    KG has a no trade clause unless he waives it to go to contender.

    Lowry would be great on the Celtics, but I think its time to face the music and build for the future. Lowry is nothing more than a short term answer. Even with healthy Rondo, the Celtics werent doing anything special.

    I really think this analysis is spot on. Even if the Celtics get Lowry or Calderon they aren't going anywhere this year, so Bagwell is right. It makes sense to get a couple of picks and give Pierce et al a chance to win another title while setting up the Celtics to be great again in a couple of years. Very well-reasoned analysis from a Celts fan right there.
