    Kent bazemore to meet with celtics Wednesday.

    Still looking for guard help? Rondo gone?

    He is the type of player we might be able to get.  No top free agents and no alpha dog draft selections.  Build a good team and go from there.

    Bazemore is a SG.

    Terrible shooter, TO% is higher than I like, but has a good steal rate and is good on the D-boards. At least he's better than Pressey.

    Where is his minutes are going to come from?  We have Smart, Bradley, Young, CJohnson that vying for some minutes at the position.

    Same as last year. Load up on SGs and PFs and create roster imbalance instead of pulling a 76ers tank job by just selling off your best players for peanuts.  Completely by design and accomplishes the same thing...losses. Bazemore isn't the missing piece to a Love deal. Lol.

    Why are we meeting with NON-CENTERS?  We need to be meeting with centers ONLY.

    Bazemore will not factor into anything the Celtics plan to do this upcoming season.  If we could get him for Pressey's salary, then sign him but I just don't see his value to this team.

    Well, Bazemore is a decent prospect.  He can shoot/score a little, really athletic, makes big plays, but he's really raw so he won't win you anything. Good for a developmental team like this. But with Blackhole Bradley at the two for the next 4 years, I kind of dont see the point.

    And there are other teams out there who can offer more money.

    Not really.


    The plan to make a splash in free-agency was supposed to happen in 2015, not 2014.


    But because of the "fireworks", expectations were raised.

    Well that plan is probably out the window.  By the end of 2015 we will again be a 25 win (or less) lottery team with Rondo leaving (if not already traded).  What self respecting free agent is going to choose to come to a full blown rebuilding team that will still have multiple years left to go before they sniff the playoffs?  They are saving their $$$$ for nothing.  Just like This offseason and Bradley they will only be able to use it to overpay their own guys while they watch other teams free agents sign elsewhere.

    It may have worked had we gotten KLove, but now, what's the point?

    It's a different story if the Celts can afford 2 max players in the summer 2015.


    But I'm not complaining because I'm expecting a rebuild that will take 3 or more years to be complete.

    If Bradley goes to Indy in exchange for sending Stephenson to Minny we will need a SG so Young can be groomed at SF.

    Bradley can't be traded for months, Smart can't be traded for a full month. Stephenson will be signed somewhere long before we even have the option of moving these guys. 

    The only thing Indy wants from the Celtics is Rondo, but they have nothing to offer that fits in with the rebuilding plan.  So, like the Love to Boston fantasy...It's Over.

    Obviously I agree we are looking at a multi year rebuild.

    I just don't see putting any hope at all in aqcuiring high end free agents within that time. The type of guys we could get are similar to Bazemore: coming off his rookie contract, somewhat underperformed for his last team, but still has some upside and could be molded in the right situation.

    The 76ers could offer two max contracts right now, but I don't see any free agents going there this year...because they are terrible. It doesn't matter how much money a team has too spend, if you aren't offering guys an instant chance to compete they aren't going there. I seriously doubt any top notch free agent is going to choose this lottery team as their preferred destination next year, let alone two of them. Celtics making decisions in order to save money for future free agents is like me saving my money for a wedding ring for Kate Upton.  Just not really going to happen, unfortunately.

    [/QUOTE


    The NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement.


    "If a newly signed player is not part of a sign-and-trade, his new team cannot trade him until December 15 of the calendar year in which he was signed or three months after the date on which he signed, whichever arrives later."


    Bradley's signing was not designated as a s&t so he falls under this category. Sorry to burst your bubble.


    Also: "When a team initiates a sign-and-trade agreement, it must trade the signed player immediately".  So if the plan was to move Bradley it would have had to be a designated sign and trade which means he would be gone already.
