In response to Petey62's comment:
I'd make every player on the team available except Rondo. Other than Rondo, every single player would be available. If I could get Josh Smith in place of Jeff Green, I'd do it in a heartbeat. If I could revisit getting Bledsoe and Jordan from the Clips for KG, I'd do it in a heartbeat.
I'd sign Kyle Korver or trade Terry for him. I'd also try to get one of Milwaukee's guards - preferable Monta Ellis. I'd also make a play for O.J. Mayo and give up Courtney Lee or Brandon Bass in return.
I'd look to send Pierce to a contender who is one veteran scorer away from a title (Golden State or Denver). I'd even consider sending Pierce to LA for Pau Gasol. If not that, I'd try to get a combination of younger players and draft picks for Pierce.
I'd get a quality backup PG and two backup bigs. If my bigs next year were DeAndre Jordan, Sully, Dalembert, Gasol, Josh Smith and Melo, I'd go to war with that front court. And in mid-season, I'd go out and not hesitate signing someone like Kenyon Martin or Chris Anderson if they were available.
AB would also be available as he is strictly an on-ball defender. He can be completely exposed defensively and when he is, he's useless overall. He is an offensive liability. Even if Rondo were out there passing the ball, he has no confidence in his shot.
Bottom line, this team is a mess. It's a mix of players who really don't play well or play well together.
Total change, bring back Lawrence Frank as our defensive coach and coach up guys on the offensive and defensive sets.
Excellent analysis above, yes indeed ! First, let me say, I hate the Lakers but if Kobe were healthy---has much more heart & skills than PP---just he and Howard & Gasol would be giving the Spurs a battle. Anyway, I'm sorry KG didn't waive his no trade and he didn't go to the Clippers...I would rather have had Bledsoe & DeAndre Jordan and I'm not being a Monday morning qtrback. I would love to trade PP for Gasol, two old guys straight up and he'd be in the land of his roots, So. Cal. but better still, although in No. Cal, I'd love PP to go to GS and for us to get one of the best PFs in the game, reminds me of Dave Cowens, David Lee. GS might have beaten Denver with Lee not hurt. Yup, I'd keep Rondo with a whole new group of people. I've liked Jess Green but he has been too inconsistent & Josh Smith straight up would be a great deal. Just wanted to end and say I too like Monta Ellis(used to see him alot at GS games) and OJ Mayo. And, if we had Gasol, maybe DeAndre Jordan & kept Sully and Melo developed, I'd go after Kenyon Martin whom we should have had this year & I'd even put up with the Birdman & all his tattoes in Green. Now, we'd be a factor in the Post especially with David Lee & Josh Smith & Rondo & OJ Mayo as Guards...definitely a contender.
Cousins & Evans too would be good pickups.
