In response to R9R's comment:
Guy, they're paying Harden 13.6M next year ... so the 6.5M number is incorrectm ... but this may still work.
Ummm, guy, Clearly meant instead of 14 million in Asik (5.25) Lin (5.25) and Robinson (3.5) on next years books they have 6.5 million in Pierce's buyout (5m) and pick 16 (1.5 million) on the books instead.
So they SAVE 7.5 million to use in free agency
Clearly knew about Harden's big contract. On that topic, if you were Howard and CP3, wouldn't you want Harden as your teammate over anyone else realistically being discussed right now?
Ok Touche. Didn't quite read that way, but I totally see what you were saying.
Yes, a Harden & CP3 duo would be amazing. Those two are such hard ballers, that Dwight might actually be able to get to the next level with them as teamates.
Also this would leave both LA teams in shambles... which is a bonus on its own.
Danny has never been afraid of trading to make other teams contenders, especially if they're in the West.
I'll give you credit for an interesting and creative trade idea. That is a lot of decent assets for the Celtics. I think they could probably move Lin & Lee for another piece (how about a S&T for Millsap?)
