In response to Fiercest34's comment:
Jeff Green, Bass, and Lee will give us a player worth 20m in return.
If we get Gasol for those 3, the Celts will save money in the long run.
Amare is a long shot. But if the Knicks want to dump his contract, then it's a possibility. The Knicks are playing so well without Amare. They just don't work well together with Melo.
Al Jefferson is an upgrade over Bass. He can also play Center. The problem is if the Jazz keep winning, I don't think he'll be available.
Josh Smith is the cheapest. Will only cost the Celts Lee and Bass. The question is, are the Hawks willing to give up Josh Smith. There's a possibility that the Hawks will not give him that multi-year deal that he's asking for.
But if you give up 3 pretty goos players to get one great player, all of a sudden your bench is pretty thin again. That's what don't like about it.
How can it be thin when we have:
Rondo, Terry, Bradley, and Barbosa at the G position.
KG, Wilcox, Sully, ???
Remember, the Celts still have the 2.5m bi-annual exception. They can still use it to sign a FA.
Also, in the playoffs, it's going to be an 8-man rotation. 9-man rotation max.
