    Austin Rivers would be a huge upgrade over Phil Pressey......

    You know it's true.

    Pressey has certainly earned his rookie salary this season with his playing time , but the numbers don't lie , they are pretty low across the board for someone getting those minutes......Pressey has done a good job this season, but I imagine Austin Rivers with the same minutes would give the Celtics a "gerald Green" type of threat off the bench. Now that Doc is gone, I think Austin Rivers would work for everyone involved. I hope Austin Rivers is on Ainge's radar, none of us really know who Ainge and Brad Stevens think are the best players.......I think Rivers would be an upgrade over Pressey and possibly Avery Bradley as well

    Too bad Rivers is not a team guy, he's an Austin guy who likes to shoot, but is not a great shooter.

    Austin Rivers isn't any good.

    We should spend our money on bigs and someone who can score.

    I think Austin Rivers can be better than Eddie House (he was good) and he is good enough to eat up some minutes behind Rondo....

    Pressey hasn't really proven he can score and everyone knows Rivers can shoot and score. Plus, Rivers and Rondo have played together and are familiar with each other, big plus.

    I seriously think Austin Rivers has a career as a 3pt specialist and solid backup combo guard, a serious threat off the bench. Seems like he would be a perfect guy to target , his value can't be all that much and the Pelicans have a backcourt logjam........plus, I just think Austin Rivers would be an exciting player and a fan favorite in Boston, even better now that he's no longer "the bosses kid"

    Check his numbers, hes a shooter not a maker, not even foul shots.  Shoots bit better than Pressey, who is real bad, but worse assist turn over ratio

    I'd rather keep Bayless.

    He's cheaper.

    We need to spend money on bigs and scorers, not combo point guards.

    Even at Duke he sot 37, 32, 54 with 2 assists.  He is 5 or 6 inches  taller than Pressey.

    My vote is no way I want Rivers in Celtic green. He was over-rated coming out of Duke and if a team is giving up on him this soon, that should say enough about him. No disrespect Phoenix...just my opinon.

    +1    If Pressey improves his shot and willingness to shoot, he can be the next "Mighty Mouse" Stoudemire/ Nate Robinson but better. A really big if.he has legit NBA court vision,gets the draw and dish and has great passing skills BUT, until he makes teams pays for going behind the pick he's an Dleague All Star

    After we finally, thankfully were abandoned by one Rivers, the fugazy HC, some of you are now advocating to sign his once over rated & now failed pipedream NBA star offspring?? Vomit!!

    Avoid Rivers like the plague.  He has a scorer's mentality without a scorer's ability.

    Rivers is not a PG, he is not a FA and under contract with the Pelicans, and he should cost quite a bit to get in a trade and salary.  He has proved to be a very questionable player who mainly shoot first and at low percentage with suspect D and does not have PG skill.


     


    Pressey aside since they don't even play the same position, why do we want this player and at what price?  He is not in Ainge radar, seriously.

    Bayless will most likely replace Pressey.
