    love trade...3 way with rondo and green?  Maybe Bass can be included as well...

    the tpe trade I can see is build through the draft.  Evan turner signing is not building through the draft.  It is either assembling chips for trades, or tanking by having a roster full of PF and SG/SF's.

    So this is going to be a build through the draft rebuild.

    Yet another Fiercy prediction gone wrong.

    I'm not a huge fan of Turner's game, so we shall see what Danny and Brad have in mind for him. He is best as a starter on a team where others have the shooting/scoring load and he can be Boris Diaw light, passing, rebounding and being a glue guy as a point SF.

    He can't be traded now until December, but it could mean a Green trade is in the works. Regardless of the depth already on this team or your opinion of his game he is a bargain at a 'portion' of the MLE. I am interested (more than excited) to see what he can do in a Boston uni.

    AInge was tanking last season. Some on here wanted Turner and Hawes. If they were as good as some said they would have improved the team enough to make the Cs pick higher than 6th.

     

    Ainge getting him for a portion if the MLE is a no brainer if he's healthy. Hopefully he has another trade in the works.  

    [/QUOTE]


    NH,

     

    C'mon ... Doc grabs Hawes for the "in the hunt" Clippers and now Ainge grabs Turner for a rebuilding Celtics. Either both Doc and Danny have no credibiity or M8 was right and you and Fungus wrong.

    Are you really gonna try to convince us that you two locals are smarter than Doc & Danny not to mention Bird?

    Caveat on Turner's numbers last year.  Sixers were an absolute mess and they were letting Turner and Carter-Williams run wild.  Turner to increase his trade value (they were not signing him and they made no secret about that) and Carter-Williams in his attempt to win Rookie of the Year.  I think this ultimately messed both of them up a little.  Only 25 it will be nice to see Turner work with Coach Stevens and run with a real PG (for now).

    Since when do the Celltics not need a guy who can score? He also has good size and can defend. I understand his place on the roster makes him redundant but the other guys haven't shown they can consistently put up points. Everyone on this board has being saying since the draft that no one the Celtics have picked up this offseason can shoot. They finally do, and people on here don't want him? You can call it "talking basketball" all you want but like Cabutan said, nothing will please certain fans. They're smarter than DA and have all the answers, but will be nowhere to be found if a Turner has a good season for the C's. I for one, hope he does. Go Celtics!

    Turner is not a good defender and he's not a shooter, he's a scorer.

    But you're right, this is a chance for Turner to redeem himself.

    [/QUOTE]


    After laughing/ridiculing my idea of getting Turner as a scorer now that I got Danny's ear you're on board?

    What a hypocrite ... whichever way the wind blows you're along for the ride ... pretty soon you'll even try to convince this board that it was your idea.

    Young is probably D League bound, Thorton may not play one minute for the Celtics. So that means Wallace of Green will have to be traded. So you have Bradley, who can play some point and can't be counted on for 82 games, Turner, Wallace/Green playing most of the minutes at the two/three. They actually look kind of tin at the two.

    Don't be surprised if Wallace is waived and stretched. It's starting to make more and more sense to save $10MM in cap space for a $4MM or less hit per year with all these new contracts averaging 4 years and $3-5MM/yr.

    None of this changes the fact I don't think it is a good signing. Sorry talking basketball bums you out so much. Again if a trade happens then it makes sense. Otherwise it doesn't.

    [/QUOTE]

    Take it easy bro I wasn't singling you out, but you have to admit there's a lot of unhappy campers.  As far as talking basketball goes, I love to discuss all Boston sports with anyone who's willing to. I feel like a lot of times on this forum people will stick to their opinion with blinders and earmuffs on while ridiculing others for having a different opinion. It seems to put a lot of people of the defensive in their responses and sometimes turns great conversation negative. 

     

    I understand why you don't like the signing, and I agree its a redundant signing while the celtics have positions of greater need. Let's hope the kid can fill the bucket a lot:) Go Celtics.

    1. get some length

    2. get more athletic (wing players)

    3. get some shooters

    Low key pickups of Marcus Thornton and Tyler Zeller, now Evan Turner to go with rookies Marcus Smart and James Young have the Celtics accomplishing their goals before they make their first big offseason trade......

    Dominique was 34, and made the all-star team the season before he signed here.

    Needless to say he was a terrible signing Dave Gavitt and Larry Bird were against and Red, M.L. Carr and the awful Gaston owners were all about. 

    Remember when you said Xavier McDaniel was signed after Lewis died? Ugh.

    Re: Even turner to celtics

    Per HoopsRumors;

    The Wolves appeared to be Boston’s primary competition for Turner, who was reportedly Minnesota’s top priority even though the team apparently envisioned signing him to only a one-year deal. The length of his arrangment with the Celtics is unclear.

    Boston has more than $78.7MM in commitments on the roster for the coming season, a figure that puts them above the tax line but below the tax apron. The Celtics can waive close to $7.018MM in non-guaranteed salary, but in any case, the team won’t be able to sign Turner to a starting salary exceeding $3.278MM without triggering a hard cap of $80.829MM for this season.

     

    FWIW: That 2nd round protected pick from the Wiz for Hump is a 2015 2nd rounder top 49 protected.

    Do you own this board?

     

    Technically I was wrong about Hump being signed and traded.

    But I told you we would get nothing for Hump and the Celts did end up getting nothing for Hump.

     

    I was wrong about the MLE.

    So?

    At least I didn't edit and delete the posts I made about the MLE.

    Celts will be in the lottery next season and most probably in 2016.

    So from 2013 to 2016, that's 3 years already.

    Celts will start making a playoff push in 2017.

    Once the Celts are a playoff team, it would take another 2-3 years to become a legit contender.

    That's 6-7 years already.

    [/QUOTE]


    Remind me again of how they missed the 2013 playoffs? 

    Constant ignorance.

    Teams can turn it around within one offseason/big trade. That is how most title winners have been built in recent years. Lakers, Celtics, Heat... 9 titles in 16 years.

    The Spurs got Duncan in '97 and won a title in '99. They own 5 of the other 7 titles in 16 years. 

    Beyond that you are left to build a team like the Pistons/Mavs. They went from bad to competitive in 2 years and to contenders in 4 years.  This 5-10 thing is Fiercy GARBAGE. If you look at recent history only the Thunder have really built through the draft. They were tanking for Durant in '07, a playoff team in '10 and a title contender in 2011. That is FOUR years. 

    Like most of what he peddles here, this is more ignorant trash. The NBA is not a predictable league. One thing we know from 2008, you can turn a loser to a winner overnight. Go away Fierce.
