    I really think Sully should be off limits! He is only going to get better and once this team has a winning mindset this will be realized. I would say package anybody (-RR9) plus picks (if we don't get top 3) and go hard after Love.

    Re: Boston-Minnesota Trade Idea

    if we are going hard after love we are going to have to give up sully. they are redundant players anyway, with love being a better version of sully. if we had, in theory, love at the 4 and asik at the 5, with olynyk backing up both positions, that'd be a decent front court. add a decent 3 to that mix (i think green can be that guy, but most obviously don't) and i think that's a pretty good front court.


    speaking of green, i'm curious to see where we'd find another 3 who can put up 16 points a game and come at a relatively cheap price since we'd be paying love a max deal.


    in the back court, i don't mind rondo. he's not as bad a shooter as some think. the problem is that we don't have a legit 2-guard. add a legit 2-guard to that starting 5 and that's a pretty darn good team.


    forget about love for a second-let's hear some ideas about who's going to play the 2 and 3. and the 1 for that matter if we were to jettison rondo (which of course would be prohibitive if we're trying to sign love to an extension, because i'm sure love wants to play with pressey, bradley, wallace and olynyk, which is a worse starting 5 than he's playing with now).

    Why would Love want to come here?

    He wants to win right away. 

    We want him only if he agrees to an extension.


    Kevin Love for Gerald Wallace, Keith Bogans, Jared Sullinger, and the Celts' 2014 lottery pick.

    In response to CelticGreenLP's comment:

    The problem I see with trading for Kevin Love is that there are other suitors who are going to drive the price up.  I've seen a lot of Celtics fans saying we have the best package to offer, but I disagree.  I think Chicago has the best proposal out there.  

    Taj Gibson, Jimmy Butler, 2 first round picks this year (16 and 19) a future 1st + filler to make the #s work. Unless we get into the top 3 we aren't even close to that offer.  

    Lets say we stay at #5.  Do you think Randle, Sully, Bass or Green and Bogans is a better offer? No way.   We would have to also give them #17, and multiple future picks, AND eat some bad contracts of theirs just to compete with what the Bulls could offer.  No way will they take our baggage in the form of Gerald Wallace's contract back.  

    We will be eating their garbage, not the other way around.  

    He's definitely worth the proposals talked about on this thread but its going to take so much more than some are suggesting to actually get it done.

     

     


    I don't think Chicago wants him.  Gibson is pretty good, it would make more sense to keep him at his fair salary and go after Melo.  That gives them a sick frontcourt of melo, Gibson and noah.  If they trade Gibson for love, they upgrade at PF but doesn't improve the team as much as the melo pickup.  I would rather have Gibson and melo than just love, if I were CHI.

    Why get Love if you are keeping Sully?  They play the same position.  Neither of them are centers.

    If you kept Sully and picked up Love you would often play a double PF set without a real center.  Add an assik and now those 3 would essentially share the 96 minutes at the 3 spots.  The Heat really don't have a center and play with a "rotation" of bosh, anderson, Haslem, and even some lebron at the 2 big spots.

    you can get away with that when you have wade, LeBron and bosh.  I don't think it is ideal.  Plus, Minni is going to want some talent back.

    Exactly, if Love is coming here that means Rondo is staying, which is the whole point of bringing him here in the first place. There is no doubt about that.  

    This is all just dreaming but...

    As far as the SG spot goes, I think if DA is building a team around Love and Rondo, Bradley actually works well at that spot.  You need defenders around those two guys which AB will bring, but also they are both top notch passers so it will enhance Bradley's offense.  

    I think a guy that could replace Green at the 3 is Luol Deng.  He'll be 30 when next year starts, and he's unrestricted,but after ending up on the Cavs he would probably take a team friendly deal to be on a playoff team.  He's a winner, a great defender, and can score in a lot of different ways. I've heard people say he's washed up, but even with the tumultuous year he had last year he still averaged 16, 6, and 3 assists per game.  

    If we don't lose Green and/or Bass in the Love trade then use them and the clippers pick to pry Asik away from the Rockets.  

    Re-sign Humphries, Re-sign Bayless, sign Paul Pierce (again really just my best case scenario) 

    Players going out in various trades: Sully, Olynyk, Green, Bass, Fav, Bogans, Anthony, and 5 to 6 of our picks

    Rondo / Bradley / Deng / Love / Asik

    Bench:  Pressey / Bayless / Pierce / Wallace / Humphries

    3rd string: best DLeague PG we can get / Chris Johnson / Chris Babb / Colton Iverson / ?

    probably won't be able to pay all those guys, which is why the 3rd string would be a bunch of super scrubs,  but the team would have to be something close to this to really be in contention.  

    If the Celtics Brass won't agree to pay to put together a team AT LEAST as good as this then they might as well just scrap it all, forget about KLove, trade Rondo, keep the picks and go young. Otherwise it's treadmill city.

    Chicago is one of six teams that have been mentioned in the running for Love numerous times. 


    "Officials believe Love's close relationship and respect for coach Kevin McHale could give the Rockets an edge. Golden State, Phoenix, the Los Angeles Lakers and CHICAGO are among those also planning to pursue Love deals with an eye on signing him to a long-term extension."  This is from Woj on Yahoo sports but all the outlets are reiterating the same teams. 


    Also the Bulls are rumored to be very high on Kevin Loves list of places he wants to be. Boston is not on that list.  Luckily though, he doesn't have a say really in where the TWolves ship him, they will just be looking for the best deal.

    Definently true.  I don't think he wants to come here, and to pull off all these trades a la 2007 would require a huge leap of faith on his part.  I do like him, but I don't think not getting him is that big of a deal, but anyway.  I know chi was mentioned as a team who might get him, but I really don't see it.  They basically pay Gibson half of what love makes, and Gibson is pretty damn good.  I will be really surprised if chi doesn't amnesty boozer and pick up melo.

    never do the two picks.  We would have 3 starting PF's and still no C or outside shooter...we would be virtually no better.

    Re: Boston-Minnesota Trade Idea

    I'd trade the 6 pick, one of our picks next year, sully, and whatever contracts it takes to make it work. Keep the 17, keep green and bass if possible for other trades. Try and turn one or both of them into asik. Draft a solid shooter at the 3 to replace green. Resign Bradley. 

    Rondo/bayless

    bradley/[free agent/draft pick]

    [draft pick/free agent]/Johnson/Wallace

    love/olynyk/hump

    asik/olynyk/hump

    it's a start. ... Or just draft well and trade away our vets for more draft picks. But next year will suck again.

    Keep the picks and trade Rondo for Hayward.


    Draft Vonleh at 6 and a point guard at 17.


    Vonleh, Olynek, Green, Hayward, and rookie point guard.


    A team to grow into the future.

    The "fireworks" could be Rondo to the Lakers for the player the Lakers pick at #7.

     

     

    That way the Celts will have the #6 and #7 pick.

    What about our 1,2 and 3. They played well enough to get us the 5th worst NBA record. They are not rookies but veterans who have established games, we know what they are fully capable of, they will NOT improve and they delivered the 5th worst record in the NBA. What would we lose by starting three new guys? It's hard to imagine things could get worse?

    Being worried about how to replace guys on a hideous team is a bit crazy to me. They might be decent players taken as individuals, and notice I'm saying MIGHT be, but right now, together, they are awful. While they stay here it's not going to get better. Get something for Rondo now before he walks away after next season. Building around him is a HUGE mistake. Jettison AB because he cannot stay on the court for all the games, his D suffers when he concentrates on O, and wants too much money. Green might give you a very, very shabby 16 points but his ONLY consistency is inconsistency. He sucks and we should be rid of him. Our record would be the same if we let the $20 million man , Wallace, play the 3 as a starter.
