    Ainge...here's the blueprint

    First thing is to sit PP down and tell him his options and you need an answer before the waiver deadline. Basically if he comes back to Boston he will be the 6th man at a reduced salary or you can work a draft night trade if there are takers.

    This may determine what KG does. I hope KG announces it as his last season and returns.

    This may prompt Doc to return one last year as well.

    Hire Nate McMillan as a defensive asst coach and tell him he will be the HC next year.

    Waive Crawford, White, Wilcox

    Try to trade Fab Melo and 2014 #1 to move up in the draft. Target 6'11 Dieng from Louisville

    Make a deal with Utah on draft night. Do a S&T of Bass and 2013 #1 pick for Big Al

    Get Rondo and Sully healthy

    If all goes well we open the season with the starters and bench of

    TWill, AB, Green, Sully and Big Al

    Terry, Lee, PP, KG, Dieng

    When Rondo is healthy TWill becomes the backup. AB has to go back to his normal position. We still have Randolph on the bench. Now we've got size, defense, youth, experience and scoring.

    PP should be gone. we need a 2 and a 5 above all. if KG returns, he mentors sully at the 4.

    starters:

    rondo

    unknown 2

    green

    KG/sully

    unknown 5

    6th man: bradley

    bench players with potential: williams, crawford, lee, melo, randolph, bass

    trade if possible: terry

    basically, ainge has a lot of work to do.

    Sounds like a good plan, Paul and KG off the bench and Nate as head coach.  If Doc is coach they go into a shell again next year during the playoffs and we will stand little or no chance to win.

    It's not the only way forward, but BLB, that's not a bad plan and one of the more realistic too I might add...

    Ainge has to move quick on a head coach though. It's being reported that KG may have surgery on both ankles...he's done if that's the case.

    Ainge is sitting on a gold mine if he approaches it correctly.

    He will have cap room. He will have a mercurial star in Rondo he could move. He has a chance to hire a good coach. Something tells me it could be Stan Van Gundy, but I would prefer McMillan.

    This team is not a gold mine.  We have no talent upfront.  A flawed backcourt which is undersized.  KG and Pierce going, will leave this team in the lottery for years.

     

    Stan Van Gundy with this no talent team versus Doc sounds like misery squared.  I can't believe your optimism.

    Um, you have cap room and a elite PG, Green. Cap room in the NBA is a gold mine especially if you can attract some FAs. They want starter minutes and there is a big void there for at least 2 FAs.

    It doesn't look like anyone yet addressed this, but...

     

    This is extremely optimistic if you think that we can get Al Jefferson signed to a 6M a year deal in that S&T. What's he currently making? Like triple that??

    1-rondo

    2-?

    3-green

    4-KG/sully

    5-?

    IMO, we need to address the 2 and 5 more than any other position. bradley is a 6th man.
