In response to Eldunker's comment:
Hedley, let me spell it out for you. IMO, The Cs will start the season with both Rondo and Pressey. At some point, both Rondo and Pressey will be traded. Regardless of what I think of Pressey, or if he is any good or not, he can be part of a trade (to shed contract or as value). I strongly believe that he does not fit with the Celtics and is not part of the rebuild. I also did not say that Frazier would be part of the team, but he may be a short term plug if Pressey (and/or Rondo are traded in December or Feb. However, Frazier will likely end up with the Lobsters.
I really don't care about who is on the roster until after February.
At the beginning of next season, Smart will be the starting PG and we do not currently have his backup on the team yet, but likely a PG that has a decent outside shot and is a much better player than Pressey or Frazier.
I completely, totally, absolutely agree with everything you've said..................except that they will trade Pressey. He has no value, and even though he makes peanuts, that is WHY they will keep him around for the year. Sorry, but your post implied that keeping Frazier over Pressey would save us money. That's what you said, regardless of your posts now. Why would you start the thread saying Frazier just signed a contract, and follow it up with....I think this means he'll move Rondo or Pressey or both?
You implied you wanted Frazier over Pressey. I'm glad to see we agree that Rondo and Pressey will start the year on the team. Frazier is camp fodder, and Pressey will be gone after this year. And YES, we have not found Smart's replacement yet, but it is certainly not Frazier.
I respect all your posts, just disagree on this one point...........it's all good!
