    Ainge: Move a PF for a Center

    I like Bass, West and Wilcox but we have too many PFs when you include JJ and KG. What happened to the thought that Green could also move to the PF to create mismatches. Too many PFs and not enough minutes. It gives us some athleticism but we need a C very bad. I want to get DeAndre Jordan or Kaman from the Clippers

    Green, Bass, JJ and #1 pick for either Jordan or Kaman.

    If we can get one of them we are set.

    Kaman's not worth all of those assets.  In fact, he's maybe worth Bass and a pick.  According to Basketball-reference.com, he compared to the estimable Abdul Aziz (Don Smith) and the likes of Mark Blount. Mark Blount!

    I think we need to forget about DeAndre...and Kaman?? no thanks.. I love the lineup we have and I am sure a 7footer will be in uniform when the season starts.

    But we are here to speculate who it is going to be. Who is the center?

    He can't be done trading, and we still have the mini-MLE.......maybe it's Paul and Okafor, maybe it's Foster or Gray............it is very exciting, though!

    Definitely agree that we still need a center.  Wouldn't be surprised if someone else is traded to make this happen.

    To get a good big man...not a stiff, you have to give up some nice pieces. Ainge isn't done.

    Maybe after the Paul deal gets done and New Orleans has some bigs.

    Green and #1 for Okafor

    " Green and #1 for Okafor" 

    I don't usually like your trade ideas and your original one was terrible but this is pretty good! 

    I approve this trade. :)

    I think we will all be shocked when Ainge brings in Kevin Love.

    Heard Okafor might be involved in the CP3 trade.

    One things seems sure that DA has accumulated too many forwards and no center.  Is he doing it with the idea of Dalembert or something bigger?  You would think so but  some these guys we have brought in are very small pieces(not West).

    You say some of these players are very small pieces, but we have a very imaginative GM in Danny and a Coach who is very adaptive. Nothing in this carnival would surprise me.  Danny and Doc have owners who support them experimenting with their moves and I don't think most of the teams have the imagination or the intestinal fortitude to attempt this kind of experimentation.

    What do you mean? The sides are still talking. The deal is starting to look like a sure thing.

    Greg Stiemsma is signed. In the summer league last year he was covering Blake Griffin and rejected him twice in the first half of the game!!!

    Re: Ainge: Move a PF for a Center

    Getting a true Center may still be in cards but the immediate competitoin, Heat and Bulls, don't really have true Centers either.  Stockpiling size to go against the Heat is a good approach, attack Bosh early on both ends of the floor.  These acquistitions make the C's far more athletic on the inside than they were at any point last year. 

    With KG, Wilcox, Bass, West, JJ, and now Steimsma that is potentially a lot of bodies and a lot of fouls.  It does seem like a bit of log jam though, so it wouldn't be surprising if someone is still moved to address the Center or add depth at the #2.

    Not cleaning the glass is what has ultimately cost this team in the play-offs the last 2 years.  Bass, West, Wilcox, and even Stiemsma suggest that Danny wants to fix that.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Ainge: Move a PF for a Center : If we can rebound we will win a lot of games. Rebounding is the key. With KG moving to Center, the Wilcox addition is not just a nice pick up anymore, it's a great pick up!
    Posted by Fiercest34[/QUOTE]

    Offensive rebounding is one of the reasons our totals are low. The reason for that is Doc likes the team to get back on defense.  Sure we can improve some on defensive rebounding but were not bad there by percentage..  Don't think our offensive rebounding will ever get a lot higher with Doc's philosophy.  Another reason for the rebounding numbers are we probably take fewer shots and slow the game down more than most teams.  Going  strictly by amount of rebounds is kind of misleading.
