In response to R9R's comment:
Since the last thread died out ...
Q1: Do you execute the following trade:
HOU: Brandon Bass, Courtney Lee, Nets 2014 first round pick
Q2: What if it costs Marshon Brooks instead of Courtney Lee?
Q3: What if it costs Avery Bradley instead of Courtney Lee?
( I posted this question to a Rockets forum on SBNation. Of course 70% said no, but there were some "Yes" replies and some interesting comments. It sounds like fans would like Lee back. I don't think they know all that much about Bass to understand that he's a good fit at the 4. And of course, they overvalue Asik. Maybe overvalue is the wrong word, but they certainly know they could use him to get a better deal down the road, which is true. http://www.thedreamshake.com/2013/9/4/4695120/asik-trade )
No and no.Brooks will be a celtics for long time.He was the best player in the deal with the nets.He is young,excellent scorer,loves the celtics(remember the green neck tie during thehis introduction press conference.He has room for improvement,and he will learn the celtics system.Go celtics.
Agreed ... The only way Asik gets done other than straight up for Humphries is Bass and either Bradley or Crawford and maybe a 2nd rd pick or a lottery protected 1st out to 2017. Houston won't want Lee back and the C's would like to extend Bradley leaving Crawford as the only option. No way will they throw Jones in unless we give them Bradley.
Options: For a trade consumated by the start of the season
1) Asik for Humphries
2) Asik for Bass & Crawford (protected 1st rd pick if needed)
3) Asik for Bass & Bradley (2nd rd pick if needed)
4) Asik & Jones for Bass, Bradley & Crawford
Options: For a trade consumated after the season starts (post trade holding periods)
5) Asik for Bass & Greene
6) Asik for Bass & Bogans
7) Asik & Jones for Bass, Bogans & Bradley or Crawford with a pick as needed
