    Humphries Firesale

    Lets brainstorm how we can shed this 12M, get well below the tax this year, and eliminate the logjam at PF.

     

    I'll start. My question is, can we just give him to the Bobcats? Straight up for a TPE? If they need to include a player, I'll take anyone. Sessions would be alright. He's at 5M, an expiring deal, and he's a back-up PG. Heck, give them a future 2nd round pick to get the deal done. Shedding 7M allows us a lot more flexability this year in terms of signing vets and moving players. The ultimate goal is to not pay tax, so we avoid the repeater rules.

     

    One Note: I've read that the CBA makes it so that you can only trade one player at a time for the guys we got from BKN. So unfortunately we cannot package Humphries with one of our many mediocre guards.

    But aren't we under the luxury tax now?  Getting under the cap is not going to happen this year, just not possible.  What are we trying to do here again?

    We can't trade him for 2 months, correct?

    Re: Humphries Firesale

    Fire sale? Really ? TJ I don't think we can trade him back to the Nits until 3 months but we can trade him  today to any team other than the nits. I'm a fan not an accountant so you may want a second opinion on that. Humpty has averaged,with the exception of last year, a double when playing 25 minutes+ per, if anyone can gussie up that pig it is DA. I hated this trade when it happened but, when you look at it objectively,it was a good move for everyone involved. PP and KG got gauranteed monies,we got 3 1sts from a win now or bust team,we got some decent young players and serious cap flexibility starting next year.  What we have now is a young but experienced core, a recent All Star, Wallace , a young "potential up and comer" Brooks that has garnered interest around the league, an expiring contract that this year will be worth more than in years past a multitude of draft picks and a player that showed promise that didn't fit last years plans.

      Even for us hardcore fans we will reap benefits right away,Last season this board had nothing but semantically based tiffs/fueds from a few posters,unrealistic trade scenarios and general dumb BS from June til camp. This year we have more cooking than the line in a busy restaurant. What will won't DA do next,what new identity are we going for, will Stevens be a good fit.,was it doc or DA that screwed the pooch? All this is up for grabs and relevent this time between end of season and the begining of NFLand NBA training camps. I'm not a baseball fan and usually the June,July,August months are barrren for me. This year if nothing else I will have a reason to read the sports page and post things that are actually going to/might/well maybe happenning.

    I am an unabashed Celtic homer for 50 years + and am unapologatically jaundiced by my fanatical loyalty, eventhough I played D1 and have coached AAU, this off season is like Christmas in July literally for me. Between an unfortunate accident giving me more time and the happennings recently in our organization, I have almost doubled my post count and am enthused about posting enough to be accussed of being Fierce34,Employee8,ElDunker,Pud et al alter ego(s) As a hard core fan I love this s@it!!! Just sayin Cool

    Why trade him?

    His contract runs out at the end of the year creating cap space.

    yeah. dumping Wallace (after Sept 12) or Bogans (after Dec 15) who have multi-year bad contracts, would be better.

    If we walk away with anybody in the top 8 of the 2014 draft, we'll be getting a stud.

    Yeah, but watching young players develop and having hope for the future is fun.

    Re: Humphries Firesale

    Yo - listen people - its just my opinion. I hate the guy. I would pay another team to take him. I thought more would feel this way, but I guess not.

    Obviously getting rid of Wallace salary would be more important, but less likely. I thought people were convinced that Humpty would be traded immediately, so I was hoping thats the case.

     

    I just want to see the real Celtics play, not the Net's trash. I may come around on Wallace, but I just hate the fact that Humpty is tied with the highest paid player on our team. He's making legit Center money, thats disgusting. Same with Bogans, who is a bandit. I'll be open minded regarding Brooks, but Humpty tarnishes our brand.

    AND heck yes this was an excellent trade for all parties, definitely not aruging that point.

    AND heck yes this amount of change is exciting and quite interesting

    AND yes I've tripled my post count as well defending Rondo to the death! And I'll continue to do that because he is a freaking super-star PG.

    I don't understand all the hate on Humphries.

    He's not a Laker.

    Re: Humphries Firesale

    He did have that run-in with Rondo, but he was the best contract we got from the Nets.  Bad one year contract is perfect, and the added bonus of a terrible player who will not help this team much this year.  Why do you want to trade him?  You might get for him is worse contract with possibly a pick to compensate for taking that worse contract, or we have to give up a pick for someone with cap to take him.
