According to numerous sources, Nenad Krstic moving back to Russia and signing with CSKA Moscow. http://www.interbasket.net/news/7965/2011/06/krstic-moving-back-to-russia-agrees-with-cska/

It means that Boston Celtics will be left without legitimate center. Who should be a possible replacement?

WOW what a big blow to the Celtics. I bet they weren't expecting that when they traded for him and Green.

Shaq retired, Krstic gone. Who is their C very good question. I would start dangling Ray Allen or Paul Pierce in a trade.....Maybe Paul Pierce for Bogut and Redd...

I'm pretty sure Celtics big three have something left in the tank and have a possibility of making one more run for the championship but they must do few smart moves this summer to be competitive next year...

I think 2 out of 3 have something left. I think Allen is out! He can still shoot the ball but that's about all. KG might have a good 50 games in him...but not more

Why the hell would the bucks do that? Trading for an almost wAshed up player for one the best centers today and an expiring is crazy. Youre delusional if you think that will happen. A brendan haywood type is attainable a great fit for them.

He will sign a 2 year contract worth 6 million euros. Not sure how the conversion rate is now, but I think it's like 8 million dollars or something

That guy played pretty well for like a 3rd string. I think that's going to hurt them pretty badly.

I think Green is the only valuable available for the trade asset on Cs roster. Still somebody have to backup aging Pierce and KG. Seems like this situation will hurt them really badly

yikes... and green will probably walk... they traded Perk for SQUAT.

They will have to look towards the draft more then likely to get their center.

Looking at their payroll they may have to make a move, i believe they are at about 65 million for the 8 players they have under contract and thats not counting Jeff Green, Big Baby or Delonte West. The good thing is if they wanna keep those guys they can but Ainge will be challenged this offseason.

^ In a good way. Green will most definitely be back, and we traded damaged goods in Perkins who will never be back to his old form. We also got a 2012 first rounder from this, and krstic was just a throw in.

in the end the trade will probably help in the future especially with the injuries for perkins(and his poor showing in okc so far) like you say...but for an older team i still find it baffling how they kinda hurt their chances of title contention with that group.

btw...just curious how you're a celtics fan but also yankees to(no offense just wondering lol).

ray allen for asik please magical forces :pray:

That would be a great deal. I don't Allen wants to leave. But that would be good.

Asik is young, but he will be a solid starting C and he is massive. With Greene on the Celtics, he can move to that 3 and Pierce can move to the 2.

Allen is the better player, but he has a year or two left while Asik can be the middle man for the next decade. With Davis being young and probably the person replacing an Ageing KG. The only position you would need to find a replace ment for would be Pierce in a few years.

Agreed, Jeff Green doesn't scare anyone right now, and wing players are much easier to find than centers, even later in the first round of drafts.

Perkins would help BOS keep their window open much more than Green at this point.

BOS had a great run, but it looks like their time is up. MIA & CHI are both clearly better now and with BOS being even older next season and losing their centers that gap will widen.

Even NY may surpass BOS next season as they will have a training camp together and time to get used to each other.

long story. My grandfather was a Yankee fan because of many reasons that I don't want to get into, and being from western mass, I like every other Boston team. If you are wondering about Boise State, I have connections there also (close family friends), and have been a fan since I was very young. Lastly, I'm half Spanish and bilingual, and I go to Spain frequently, which is why I have the Spanish flag in my banner.

Kristic is a bum that cannot fit into their system. This is a blessing in disguise for the green.

EDIT: Kristic was not going to be their starting Center anyways.

Why do you think Green will walk? I could understand if he was unrestricted, but he is a RFA this offseason.

And even if he does leave, BOS still has LAC's 2012 first, which should be in the late lottery/mid teens range.

I'd be very interested in that trade from a BOS standpoint. Asik is going to be a very good starting C IMO. The problem is, salries don't match. Other pieces need to be included...

BOS gets: Asik, Keith Bogans, Kyle Korver ($8,585,500)
CHI gets: Ray Allen ($10,000,000)

I think that works salary wise. CHI could include Brewer instead of Korver, but I think if you're getting a shooter like Ray back it makes more sense to keep the defender and trade the shooter.

Green won't walk, he's a RFA. We didn't trade him for squat, we traded him for Green and a Clippers 2012 first round pick. Not so bad.

In what world is Kristic a legit starting center? And the Celtics will either aquire a center, MLE a center, draft a center, or start JO. Not exactly screwed.

It's been a long time since I've seen so many people talking but without the facts at hand.

Krstic was a free agent, there was no promise he would stay. With a lockout looming it seems like a smart move to me. Meanwhile he can opt out of his contract and come back to the NBA.

The Celts were prevented from offering more then $22M for 4 years for Perk, after the deal he signed a $34.9M offer from OKC. Due to what most assume was his knee operation and his other knee getting sprained this year, Perk played miserably all year when he did play, and was awful in the playoffs, getting punked by ever player he had to cover. Any real improvements OKC made were due to a change in the playing time of others, not Perkins. As of the minute Rondo was hurt the Celts couldn't have beaten the Heat as some claimed, so keeping a future FA for nothing that couldn't lead you to a title seems pretty dense.

Green is a RFA and will join Boston or be signed&dealt. He was 2nd in minutes for OKC last year before the deal, a good promising young player (six months younger then Rondo).

The Celts also netted a #1 draft pick for 2012 in the deal.

Perkins was injured goods that the Celts would not have been able to sign due to the cap. No great loss believe me. OKC fans will be tearing him to pieces after a couple of years. Let me know the last time a 6' 10" 285 lbs or bigger guy had significant knee (and shoulder) problems before he turned 26 and then how long he lasted after as the same sort of player??

Wings are easier to get then Centers. But Perk is at best 1/2 a player, and he doesn't play that many minutes, and he's been hurt a good deal in his career. Perk and Rondo? You think that would have attracted anyone after the big 3 was gone? Green, and whomever we can get for Allen is a better landing spot.

Good riddance

Really? The only problem in this thread is some people thought DA didn't know he was a FA. A player that is capable of the stats I'm going to post would be a welcome addition to next years Celts team, period.

For Celts last year:

17/6
11/6
11/7
11/14
16/15
20/9
17/3
7/8
11/6
13/4
8/6
11/5
9/6

For OKC last year:

14/7
13/8
12/5
8/8
11/7
10/3
9/4
18/6
10/2
9/4
3/7
11/7
4/8
6/9
7/6
16/11
12/6
12/4
8/9
16/2

That's half of his games last year. Compared to some of the junk we are going to have at the 4/5 that's pretty damn good.

06-10-2011, 06:28 AM
he didn't even play....

Yeah? In 24 games (only half of them healthy) he posted a 9.1/5.3 in 23 MPG.

His 36 MPG would be: 14.2/8.3 while the "legendary" Perkins would be a 10.0/11.2

In WS/48 Krstic was a .170 which doubled up Perkins at .088. Pretty good for a guy that didn't even play.


In the playoffs, Krstic was 4th in WS/48, slightly ahead of Garnett, Rondo, and West. No, we have no use for such a player.
