    If you are looking to win, you need players that will compete.  LA has not shown me that he competes.  This should be a pass.

    If they could trade Rondo for another Exception and 1rst round draft choice(s) and a servicable body or two I'd be down with his being traded. No offense to Rondo meant it's actually a compliment, as he's that damn good that the C's could ask for the moon.

    THEY WOULD WANT HUMPH AS WELL FOR salary CAP RELIEF. to me that would b key for them.. clear up cap room and get picks.. become what the celtics were the last few weeks.. agree with poster that aldridge is the best available.. he and love are at the same level at worse.. bron and durant are the only 2 elites and neither are walkin thru those doors.. those b buzz guys and not coming just for bball

    Ainge is armed with trading material.  He will determine if this is the type of move that will be made.  Ainge knows full well what avenues are available.   Will Rondo be on board? He knows better than any of us.  I have thought all along that this gathering of draft picks and contracts would result in 2007 situation not a rebuild over years.  This is who Danny is, not patient at all, a riverboat gambler.




    likewise!

    Look at the moves.

    Aldridge can play with his back to the basket, shoot from the outside, has a jump hook, and can drive to the basket.



    agreed! Aldridge knows how to play like a real PF, he is underrated 4. He has the ability to do fade away jumpers like KG, Dirk nowitzki and rasheed wallace. once named "lil sheed" because of his talent

    Kevin Love is an elite rebounder, one of the best passing big men in the NBA, and can shoot 3s. Marc Gasol is an elite defender, passer, and is considered by most to be the premier center in the game. Carmelo has one of the most complete and diverse offensive repertoires in the game and is an underrated passer/rebounder.

    Brook Lopez and Al Jefferson are on par with him, maybe a shade behind.

    LaMarcus Aldridge is a nice player who is capable of being the #2/#3 player on a championship team, but he is no savior and would not make the Cs elite. He reminds me of Chris Bosh for Toronto - except Chris Bosh in Toronto put up better numbers.

     

     



    Kevin Love is an elite rebounder, but he's not as good as Aldridge on offense.

     

     

    Marc Gasol is an elite defender and passer, but like what we saw in the playoffs, Marc Gasol is not capable of carrying a team. When the Griz needed to score, Marc Gasol couldn't deliver. The Griz ended up getting swept by the Spurs.

    Carmelo is a great individual player, but he's not a team player. He needs the ball a lot and he shoots a lot. If you just want to win 50 games and make the playoffs every season then Melo's your man. But if you want a championship, you pass on Carmelo Anthony.

     

    I already said Ainge would be building through the draft. So if we don't get Aldridge, I'm willing to wait. 

    All I'm saying is Aldridge shortens the rebuilding process.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    In the Drew Gooden thread you just sais something along the lines of (paraphrasing) "every loss gets uscloser to Wiggins".

     

    So then why do you want to bring in LA? Wouldn't that make our team better and therefore push us further away from him? What is your goal for the team? Do you want to develop young players, stink, and hit the lottery or do you want to keep Rondo, cash in on young assets, and bring in another mid-level star to be a 4-5 seed in the East for the next 3-4 years?

    I don't disagree on the premise of using assets to cash in on a big name player, but I don't think LA is the one or that this is the right time. Not with the best crop of draft prospects in a decade looming along with Durant or Love potentially available in a season or two.

    Personally, I'd try to swap Rondo for Kemba/2014 CHA 1st, bottom out, pick up two top 10 draft picks and go from there with more picks in 2015, '16, '17, '18 (Nets picks in 2017 & '18 could be quite valuable).

    HUGE +1 Archer.

    Patience people, patience.  Build thru the draft.

    No!  It's a ridiculous thread because the Celtics are not getting Aldridge!  I'll bet you every last penny that I own Aldridge does not go to the Celtics.  The better alternative is the Wiggins sweepstake. imo

    I like idea of LA  in green we be a decent team right away and keep reloading  as we go for next 5 years.

     

    After the Mavericks finished off the sweep, Magic Johnson said that the Lakers "embarrassed the organization" and called the fouls on Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum "classless."

    No, it is not just about worth.  It also has to do with the belief that LA will become a big fixture in the line up and he is just not of quality enough to put us over the top.  His playoff average may be 19.8 but I have not seen him play with passion or dominte.  Getting LA would mean building a team that may make it to the second round of the playoff.

    Don't get stuck with $14M in salary and player that is just short of being enough.  If necessary, pay more and a better player or gamble a little for the opportunity to get a better player.

    I'm on board with Aldridge too ... always loved his game and I'm not interested in trying our luck in the Wiggins sweepstacks ... Our track record in the lottery sucks big time and from a risk/reward perspective Aldridge with Green & Rondo makes for a nice core that can go places. Maybe Portland will be interested in the expiring contract of Humphries and another player/s and/or picks and Danny can get this done as soon as Portland realizes there's no sense in waiting till next year to move L.A.

    it would take way too much. bottom line. if you think sully and a pick will get it done then you're dreaming. the blazers would demand a package that includes at least 2 of Boston's own #1 picks in 2014 and 2015. no way. if they are dumb enough to accept sully, bass, the Net's #1 in 2014, and the Clip's #1 in 2015, then i'm all in. but they would never take that deal. sully isn't as valued outside of boston, the Net's #1 in 2014 will be a late round pick, as will the Clips #1 in 2015. 

     



    Like I said, Sully, other players, and a draft pick or picks.

     

    If not then continue with building through the draft.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    why would the blazers want sully? they would want olynyk and several #1 picks, minimum. aldridge has 2 years left on his deal, they aren't going to give him away for Boston's mediocre young guys. sully is mediocre, olynyk is unproven, bradley is an undersized defensive guard...

    i agree. there are no deals involving aldridge and boston that make sense. either the blazers would reject boston's offer or boston would have to give up too much. i don't think they care for any player currently on boston's roster, they would want several #1 picks.

    Re: LaMarcus Aldridge On The Move

     It's clear that Aldridge prefers to leave Portland but the Blazers won't trade him unless they're getting back fair value, and they've reportedly been turned down by the Bulls (a deal involving Joakim Noah), Timberwolves (Kevin Love), Clippers (Blake Griffin), Hawks (Al Horford) and Pelicans (Anthony Davis).

     

    and here we are talking about a deal for aldridge centered around jared sullinger.. LMAO what a joke.
