In response to greenmuse's comment:
My "fun" idea, not a in "Love" approach but still allows for that scenario:
1. Knowing Phoenix would like an impact player... this will be a July deal because it involves a S&T
BOS gets Jennings, #14 and Future Detroit pick for taking less desirable player (owed 15M over 2 years, eventually we move him when our future PG is ready (Smart)
PHX gets Monroe
DET gets Rondo
2. Go get Hayward from UTAH using Bogans expiring and recently acquired #14 pick, I just have a feeling DA and BS want this guy on Celtics, versatile PG/SF, we get Utah #23. We could always add 2015 LAC 1st if needed.
3. I am thinking new MILW ownership really wanted to draft Embiid and build "their" team, around him I don't think CLEV is totally committed to Embiid so first we help CLEV (motivation)and MILW trade places in the draft
BOS gets CLEV #33 and xpiring MCGee and any other filler xpiring
MILW gets #1 and takes back Bennett and does not pick up his 3rd year option thereby only stuck with the bust for 1 year.
CLEV gets #2 (Parker) and Bass to give them a better PF rotation than current
4. Now that Embiid is in MILW we continue dealing with MILW restructuring
A. Wallace (2/22) in exchange for Sanders (4/44), contract savings to MILW of 22M and we get #39
B. Anthony and Bradley for Mayo (DA liked this guy in the past , may get rejuevanated on a good team, nets MILW another contract savings depending on how much they extend Bradley for
We now have picks #6, #17, (#23 may need to go in MILW deal above if necessary), #33 and #39
Jennings/#6Smart/ Pressey --- we move Jennings (NY?) when Smart is ready to take-over
Mayo/ Hayward/#17 Hairston - my favorite at #17
Green/Johnson/#33-Ingliis (stashed in Europe for 2 years) Like the atheltism but still too young for NBA
Sully/Olynyk/ #23 Porzingus (if pick not sent to MILW)
Sanders/Hump-resigned/Fav /#39 W Tavares (again stashed in Europe)
This team has veteran starters, Hayward brings back BOS 6th man role at SG/SF (so he'll get his minutes) until Green or Mayo contracts expire or moved. It allows the youngsters to develop under less presure and if we end up moving more of our future stockpile of draft picks for a Stud, we also have a couple solid players stashed in Europe following the S-ANT model. One of my thoughts is that there will be some good rotation players available in the 2nd round with many teams with extra 2nd rnd picks, ideal for European stash possibilities and fits our re-build time frame. BTW I still have not used that 10.3 TPE yet. So this scenario allows another significant move.
I REALLY like your line of thinking here.
1. The Boston-Phoenix-Detroit moves are a clever addition to my Jennings/Monroe/pick 8 (before the Pistons got lotto burned) idea from all season.
I don't think it is enough value for Rondo: pick 14, a future Detroit pick in the teens (let's say the better of their own or Charlotte's top 3 protected). Monroe can't be in it as a S&T before the draft, so it will just have to be for his QO of 5.5m.
Phoenix has some cap space left though. This trade works:
Boston - Jennings (2/15), Jerebko (just picked up 1 year 4.5m option), Gerald Green (1 year 3.5 million) and Miles Plumlee, plus pick 14 and Detroit's future pick.
Detroit - Rondo, Joel Anthony, Gerald Green, Faverani (two bigs who can backup Smith and Drummond).
Phoenix - Greg Monroe (ability to match any offer for him, perfect fir alongside Len, Frye or a Morriff brother), Will Bynum, Chris Johnson and the Detroit 2015 pick (basically C's give up getting that pick for Plumlee, who wouldn't have mins in that frontcourt anyhow)
2. I also love the idea of Bogans for Hayward. The QO on him is 4.6 so basically even money with the non-guaranteed 5.3. I don't know if a swap of 23 to 14 is preferable to just giving them pick 17, but either of those two options is fine with me. I would rather we keep both picks and trade them Bass for Hayward in a July sign and trade where we send them Clippers 2015 pick top 3 protected and the worse of our two 2016 picks top 10 protected or something like that.
3. The Cleveland thing gets too crazy and Gee is a team option, not expiring contract. I also already traded Bass away. But let's do Wallace for Sanders and picks #36 and #48 anyhow, the cost of 22 million in 2016-2018 is both the Bucks 1st rd picks. Even though it hurts our 2016 cap space, we are no longer trying to lure a Kevin Durant here that summer to play with Rondo and Love, but building a gritty young team for Stevens.
Bradley is signed for 5/32.5 and Hayward for 4/44 (same as Sanders incidentally).
The draft picks are:
#6 - Aaron Gordon (the next Shawn Marion)
#14 - Elfrid Payton (he's going to be REAL good trust me, a Rondo in Gary Payton's body who actually improves his jumper the more he plays pro ball)
#17 - TJ Warren (hoping he is there, or take him 14th and hope Payton is there, if Payton is gone take Ennis, Napier or Micic, Warren can SCORE and is a Celtic Pricde/Stevens player, active defender who loves the game)
#36 - Kristaps Porzingis (or Nurkic/Capela if they fall), stash overseas
#48 - Spencer Dinwiddie or Nick Johnson (a couple of Jr's who should have stayed in school who I feel we can D-league for a year and then see them be productive 11th-12th men/locker room leaders for a long time)
C - Plumlee (26m) Sanders (22m)
PF - Sully (22m), Olynyk (22m)
SF - Green (28m), Warren (12m), Hayward (8m)
SG - Bradley (26m), Hayward (22m)
PG - Pressey (26m), Payton (22m)
This team is lotto bound again but definitely SUPER fun to watch. The growing pains of having 23-24 and 20-21 year old PG's on this club are evident but they get valuable experience.
Gordon spends 2013 in the D-league and sometime around the New Year Ainge makes a big move where he trades Jeff Green, maybe with Plumlee and/or Pressey somewhere and gets back a couple more picks, maybe a veteran PG to mentor Payton and some room in the rotation to bring up Gordon and double Warren's minutes.
C's go into 2015 lotto hoping to get Jahil Okafor
