    Hickson--Ripe


    He was ripe for plucking and somebody dropped the ball. Imagine KG with 2 willing pupils (Johnson & Hickson) to bleed keltic green..

    Hi,
    IMO, Hickson is Varejao type just more athletic. On the flip side AV has much higher BBIQ, knows how to spell defense and can get under anybody's skin. In other words, let's keep JJH where he is.

    Hickson is just not that good don't bother. Anderson Varejao is another story.  A couple of other tweaks in the roster and the Celtics would be in play next year.

    In Response to Re: Hickson--Ripe : Are you even reading these posts? The Cavs sign Hickson. We trade Green for Hickson. That's it.

    Hickson is currently under contract, there was no need for the Cavs to sign him to a contract. You're wrong if you thought Hickson was a free agent.

    In Response to Re: Hickson--Ripe : It doesn't matter. The Cavs could have signed him to a new contract to make the numbers match and traded him for Green.

    It matters Kirky! The NBA does not allow what you're saying. You can't discard a player's existing contract and replace it with a new one just so you can trade the player.

    NO WAY is Hickson worth Baby and Green... and to all you idiots crying for a BBD sign and trade NOW... the LOCKOUT currently (and previously) prevented that. We only just OFFERED Green his 1 year contract, he has yet to go through the restricted free agent process... where he can attempt to get offers from others AFTER THE LOCKOUT. In short we had NOTHING but Avery and a future 1st to offer for Hickson. Which is WAY less value than Hickson. Wake up fools.

    Amen, brother.  You and I are on the same page here. They can't just sign Hickson to a new deal.  I agree 100% with everything you've said, except for calling fellow Celtics fans idiots!!.....:)

    In Response to Re: Hickson--Ripe : No, I am not wrong. They can change a contract if the player is getting more. Or they could tear up the contract like the Clippers did to move Sam Cassell to the Celtics. But thanks for playing...
    Posted by Kirk6



    So, Jeff Green would agree to tear up his offer of 5.9 million, take a 2.3 mill one year deal so he could be traded for JJ Hickson??

    Think about that!  Cassell had to agree to that, didn't he?  And he was 38 yrs old!

    Cassell came to the C's after he was waived.  He could have went anywhere.  You can't just change a salary to make a trade work.

    Teams below the salary cap may trade without regard to salary, as long as they don't end up more than $100,000 above the cap following a trade. Teams above the cap (or teams below the cap but would end up more than $100,000 over the cap following a trade) cannot acquire more than 125% plus $100,000 of the salary they trade away. There is no lower limit—teams may divest themselves of as much salary as they wish in a trade. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBA_salary_cap
    Posted by Kirk6


    Both teams are over the cap - so trading  Hickson (at 1.5 mill - 125% is 3.25 plus 100K)  for Green at 4.5 (now 5.9) doesn't work.  They would have to offer Green  a LOWER amount than what he made this year -  not happening!
