    If The Clippers, the current frontrunner for Paul, have to trade Kaman as part of the deal to make the $ work... couldn't we get involved and send a pick, Avery or Johnson, Jermaine and the trade exception for Kaman?

    If we used the 3 million on Wilcox over a veteran min contract that is really expected a lot of the guy as a Center when he is really a PF.

    A lineup of:

    C - Kaman, Wildoc
    PF - KG, Bass
    SF - Pierce, Green
    SG - Ray, Sash/Moore
    PG - Rondo, Dooling

    Would make some noise tho.

    SG could use an upgrade as Ray can't/shouldn't play 30+ minutes anymore. Pierce could play 8-12 mins there of course if Green is as good as we all hope and demands 30+ mins every night.

    I'd even start Green and have his young legs run with Rondo and benefit from his passes

    We signed wilcox to a VM, we use the daniels TPE to trade for Dooling, we still have the MLE. I think NOLA would want Kaman over Jermaine

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Did we use the 3 million mini-MLE on Wilcox? Can we use Marquis Daniels 2.8m trade exception from a year ago? : Unlikely. Even if the Clips keep Jordan they would need a backup Center. Kaman is certainly better than JO right now and the Clips would get cap relief next season from Kaman's expiring contract.  Also, not worth it to give up on JaJuan Johnson just for Kaman. Besides, even if we got Kaman, he's not going to make the Celtics a championship contender.

    We already are a championship contender, even if we are not quite the one were were entering last season, hopefully we are a much healthier deeper team than we were a year ago

    Going from O'Neal/Johnson to Kaman is an upgrade

    Kaman will almost certainly be included in the impending Paul trade to the Clippers, they are not paying 12 million for a backup Center.

    So we still have the 3 million?

    ESPN trade machine seems to think we used it on Wilcox

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Did we use the 3 million mini-MLE on Wilcox? Can we use Marquis Daniels 2.8m trade exception from a year ago? : No we are not.  As it stands right now, the Celts are just the 4th best team in the east behind Miami, Chicago, and NY.
    Posted by Fiercest34[/QUOTE]

    We are better than NY.

    Chandler is great on defense but we don't have a big man who hangs in the paint for him to gobble up. He is great with a nasty passing PG, Paul/Kidd... and was on offensive no-show as a Bull/Bobcat when he didn't have a PG.

    Amare and Melo will give KG, Bass, Pierce and Green fits for sure, but there is no way those two combine to outscore those 4 AND Ray/Rondo... Bibby is washed up... they have no bench, no core of players who have been together other than Melo/Amare (for like 35 games)

    No way Knicks are better than Celtics right now

    I think I would keep the big D league center over Pavlovic.

    Pavlovic was signed to a guaranteed deal and the Celtics can accommodate both Pavlovic and Stiemsma on the 15-man roster. The poster counted Daniels twice.
