the Clippers supposedly want Granger from Indiana.
They obviously want KG and Doc
Ainge wants young pieces for a re-build
The Pacers want a new PG
so how about a 3 team trade along these lines:
Ind -gets Bledsoe from LA and Terry (or Lee) from boston.
LA- gets Garnett, Granger and rights to Doc
Boston- gets Jordan, Butler, #23 pick from Indiana this year and LA's first rounder next year.
then Ainge trades Pierce to cleveland for their #19 pick in this years draft. (there is a rumour that Cleveland wnats a vet player to go with all those top 5 draft picks they have on the team AND that some inquiries about Pierce have happened).
Possible roster after the draft.
C- Plumlee or Dieng (#19 pick)
SF- Butler (final year of deal)
SF- T. Mitchell, Sarasev or Rice ( #23 pick)
PG- Schroeder or Larkin ( #16 pick)
PG- D. Collison ( FA signing to protect against ROndo coming back slow and possible Robdo trade during next season).
2- first round picks in next years draft.
Sign a HC that will use and develope YOUNG players
Rebuild kick started.
