I read that the celtics are listening to trades for Paul Pierce and we all know Ainge wants to get young, would Rudy Gay for Paul Pierce ever happen?

The celtics would receive youth and athleticism which they are currently missing, also Rudy Gay can greatly benefit from a guy like KG who can help him become a great defender and overall basketball players. Also the Celtics wouldnt lose anything defensively because Gay is better defensively than Pierce. A core of Rondo and Gay can be a great chip in the free agency market to bring guys in.

The Griz get a 4th quarter closer thats been there done that and won a championship. To me the Griz looked like they didnt know who to go to in the 4th in their playoff loss against the Clippers, they tried a lil gay, a lil Randolph, and even Conley down the stretch. I know the griz are shopping gay to cut money and both gay and pierce's contract are identical except for that Paul's contract is a year shorter.

The griz would still contend and somewhat save money.

The celtics get young and athletic withouht sacrificing too much talent.

what do you guys think?

I think people should shut up about Rudy Gay until he actually gets traded.

Griz have no reason to do this.

No, Griz want cap flexibility and relief, Pierce doesn't give them either.
