In response to Eldunker's comment:
Assuming Danny wants Greg Monroe, not whether you do or not... which trade would you want DA to do (not including salary fillers) from the following:
1. Crawford and Oly and Clips 2015 first and worst of Celts/Nets 2014 first
2. Crawford and Sully and Nets 2014 first.
3. Green and Celts 2014 first and 2015 second
4. Green and Oly and Fav
5. Rondo (Detroit includes their 2014 and 2016 second)
Wow. Ok. I'll play.
ABSOLUTELY NOT 5, 4, or 3. What are you thinking Monroe is? He is leaving detroit. Its inevitable. He's an RFA, looking for the max, and Detroit already has a starting PF and Center.
The absolute max would be Olynyk, Brooks and 2015 Clippers 1st. Even that may be too much for Moose. Why on god's green earth would you give up our starting PG, SF or our soon to be star PF who is still technically a rookie?
Either way, this doesn't happen this season. It happens at the end of the season. Danny says to Detroit, we are putting in a max QO, would you rather do a S&T? They say yes, we pull together expirings plus a few pieces or a pick and get it done.
Tell me, how many recent S&T's have overpaid like you want to do above for an RFA who isn't really all that great yet?
