First, Bias, if I were Ainge, I would have stuck with a 2 year deal like he did so that he has flexibility. If Davis proves himself, he can get a larger contract. If not, they let him go.
Second, No way Camby can hit a jump shot consistently. You're watching some other player because it ain't Camby!
Third, Camby is taller and can block shots off the ball. However, he's not strong enough to guard Howard or any other strong center. Its not optimal for BBD to do it, but for short stretches, he can use his strength, at least. More importantly, BBD can guard power forwards who can move. Same cannot be said for Camby who I like as a player, but not for us.
If your trade had Camby for JON, I'd buy your logic. But, BBD is a different player and more needed on our team than Camby. Camby is a weak center who does NOT have the speed to stay with a power forward nor the strength to battle big centers. BBD is a power forward who has to sub at center when we don't have much choice.
your proposal just doesn't make sense, my man.
Try another idea if you're trying to improve the Celts (who most of us will tell you only needs a backup shooter to Ray and/or Paul......NOT another center!!).
