So we tank and get cap space...well ok. It would be hard for me to watch but you'll made a great case. So you don't want to stay afloat you just want to drown...ok. LOL!
The point is to drown next year in a rediculously deep draft then have this years pick 16, next years lotto pick, Sully, Barnes or Green, Ezeli and Avery all in that 20-23 year age range. Even Melo might dom something.
Rondo, Green, Bass and one of Lee or Terry will keep this team competive. The point is are they still going to be bad enough to get a good shot at lucking into the top 3 and doing no worse than 8 or 9, or will that team en dup in the 12-16 range and need to trade Rondo or Green.
If you had Barnes Jeff Green is 100% expendable. Get an expiring contract and 2014 lotto pick for him by all means. Rondo would still likely have to come back and prove he's over the injury, be held out until Christmas or so and then have 2 months to prove if he is the leader of young men for the future or a guy to deal at the deadline.
People keep talking about Celtics most valued assets being Doc, KG, PP and Rondo...
I think Jeff Green at 8M could fetch a Huge return. The guy coming back from heart surgery basically took over as point leader on our team. He can defend. He can create. He can make 3's. He is at the age where he is reaching his prime. He can certainly fetch us a 2014 pick and young talent.
I bet you Portland would do a trade of Alrdige for Green (not that I necessarily want Aldrige). Not sure who to target, but there has got to be options.
