    We have Brandon Bass, who we need to move and he is good.  Brandon deserves to be on a contender.  We have tooooo many power forwards.

    This thread cant be happening.  We have Bass who is playing absolutely good maybe great ball, playing better than Asik even on his good days and we are still talking about that softee who was literally moved around at will by Jordan Hill in last night game. I still dont get the infatuation with this guy. Honestly.

    And a guy that would be making almost 15 millions next season.  Where do all these man love/crush come from on this board?

    I find this hilarious.

     

    So many have said repeatedly that Houston would LAUGH at Bass for Asik

     

    Now, Bass is clearly the superior player...

     

    HAH!

    They still wouldn't make that trade, if offered.

    Re: houston needs a pf badly

    Listen guys, put aside your hatred for Asik for one minutes.

     

    Salary cap wise, a Bass+Lee for Asik trade would absolutely help the Celtics. It also clears space for Sully & KO to operate at the 4 exclusively (once Hump leaves).

     

    Maybe Asik isn't the future Center for the celtics, but he definitely makes more sense  on this team than Bass does right now.

     

    A four man big rotation of Sully, KO, Asik, Fav with Iverson as the 5th next season would be solid. Its not winning us championships, but it allows for equal opportunity and growth. ALSO, a big plus, we don't need to take (another) chance on a big in this draft, which is always a risky proposition. ALSO, we don't need to waste cap going after a 3rd tier Center in free agency next summer. The trade will allow for the Celtics to draft a Jabari Parker, grab another wing in free agency and have a semi-complete team already built round Parker allowing him to succeed in the NBA.

     

    How does that not make sense to you?

    Notice the bold type..................that has to happen first?  IF I agree with that, then shouldn't that be the topic of the thread?  Why trade Bass now if Hump has to go first?

     

    I like Asik, but I'm thinking more Wallace for Asik

    Lin, Harden, Wallace, Parsons and Howard would be a MUCH better defensive team than what they have now....................defense is their problem.

    Bass for Asik would be a win-win for both teams

    The only problem is, Asik makes $5.5M this season and $14.9 next season. Maybe if he would sign a   $3M one year extension......then it would make his next years salary digestable....

    Asik is a top 5 center , very smart, highly skilled.

    He'd be perfect on the Celtics

    Pull the trigger Danny , and try to get another #1 pick from Houston in the deal

    I think it would be better served Bass and Bradley to Houston and get a 3rd team to Take Asik. An example being Dallas whereas Boston takes Marion's expiring and we get Houston's late 1st pick.  We clear up cap space, roster clog at PF and accumulate picks.

    That trades works, and I like it, but I can't see HOU and DAL making a trade together.  Otherwise, nice!!

    Re: houston needs a pf badly

    But............if you want to get really creative........remember we have PP's 10.3 mill TPE

     

    Humpty and Lee to the Raps

    Bass to HOU

    Asik to DAL

    Marion and Gay to BOS

     

    TOR is looking to move him, gets a nice expiring contract - then they can go for Nash

    Bass helps HOU

    Asik helps DAL a lot

    We would have to move either Wallace or Green ( I say Green) in a separate trade, never play Marion, and we get our go-to guy to build around.

    Sign Kendall Marshall

     

    Rondo/Marshall

    Bradley/Crawford

    Gay/Wallace

    Sully/KO

    Fav/traded player

     

     

    Or, we could just do Green for Asik.............
