At this particular moment there are NO untouchables on this team. Rondo is not back to himself yet, although a better sourrounding cast and another offseason will likely get him there.
I am high on Sully, KO, and down on Bradley and green. They are good 6th man types, but not game changers. 4th, 5th, 6th man types to me. At the premium scoring positions that is our problem. They are good, just not good enough.
I have been a proponent of an Asik or Gortat type trade. Make it so DA. If you are keeping your picks, draft scoring, especially a pure outside shooter for the 2 or 3. So FA/trade for the big, and draft the talent/scoring. Bigs are so hit or miss in the draft that the risk is too big in my mind. Let someone else gamble.
I love the idea of a Kevin Love, but not at the expense of a sully and all of those picks. He isn't that much better than sully talent wise. Asik, KO,Sully and 2 picks are better than love, KO, and ?. Can you get Love for Bass, Bogans, green, braqdley,wallace type players(2 or 3) and maybe 1 pick? I would love Rondo, Draft, green, Sully, Love. If you keep the picks this year and trade for Asik with a future pick plus Bass/bogans you get rondo,bradley/draft, green/draft, sully/ko, asik or gortat/faverini.
Would wallace agree to a buyout if they draft a SF and he was relagated to 11-15th man and not in the rotation virtually at all?
