[QUOTE]In Response to Re: 2013 Celtics = 2004 detroit pistons. : So after Jan 15th bbass can be traded for his actual salary $6 mill right? So if we traded bbass $6mil per and lee's $5 million = $11 mil for jsmith, right? So salaries match and either throw in melo or a 1st rd pick. Now I understand that the hawks would want a lottery pick, but would a team whos that bad really want to trade for a josh smith and his salary?

Yes those salaries match for a trade even if the trade value is likely not enough to get Smith, unless a 3rd team that gives picks/young talent for Lee and/or bass becomes involved. You are right that his value is lowered by being a pending FA and no lotto team would really want him.
Bass can be traded for his full 6 mil after Jan 15th and since the entire Varejao trade premise was a Jan/Feb one, I have no idea why Fierce felt the need to bring that up. Especially when he doesn't want to involve himself in trade talks before the season, haha.
I guess the BYC talks were a brief bandaid for the multiple wounds he suffered trying to say we couldn't use Varejao b/c of:
A. make believe chemistry issues (despite his being a perfect hustle/rebound glue guy who will be loved more than PJ Brown a late season acquisition was)
B. his lack of offense (1-2 points less than Bass over a career, yet getting 3-5 more boards, 2-3 on off and better D???)
C. the fact that Green will play vs. Miami the last 5 mins (let's just forget about the other 43 mins and other 28 teams huh Fierce?)
It was a pretty poor attempt to just try and disagree with others for the sake of being a confrontational individual who strives to start fights and act smarter than everyone else at all times, but facts and reality proved him wrong and it all blew up nicely in his face, hehe
