Pierce and KG to the Clippers
DeAndre Jordan and Josh Smith (signed and traded at 4/54) to the Celtics.
Eric Bledsoe, Willie Green and Caron Butler to the Hawks (they get something, a solid young PG, for the exiting Smith)
Lee, Bass, Melo and a future 1st rd pick (top 5 protected) to the Hornets
Eric Gordon to the Celtics
Pick #16 is Plumlee or Olynyk... an offensive ready big who can hit Ft's when Jordan sits
C - Jordan, Plumlee/Olynyk
PF - Smith, Sullinger
SF - Green, (Smith)
SG - Gordon, Bradley, Crawford
PG - Rondo, Terry (Bradley)
The team would still have the MLE to use, either on a backup SF (Corey Brewer, Chase Budinger, Sam Young) or a big (if we go elsehwere the in the draft, like if Muhammad drops to us) or a true PG (Devin Harris, Beno Udrih, Calderon, A,J. Price) if they can get rid of Crawford and Terry.
One of Crawford and Terry should be on the trading block
If Gordon is healthy and a 20ppg scorer this team could make SERIOUS noise as long as Rondo is the best he can be and Doc coaches them correctly.
