    Dwight Howard is too expensive and he's a headcase

    Bynum is a huge risk, a headcase, and too expensive

     

    Al Jefferson is worth $8M , but he plays no defense...

     

    The absolute best player available with the most upside is Tiago Splitter , if the Celtics can sign him for $8M (first year) then that would be a dream come true....

    Giving Al Jefferson more than $8M for 5 yrs will lock the Celtics into mediocracy for the forseeable  future....

    .500 and first round playoff exits at best......would rather let Pierce and KG play it out and get into the lottery......

     



    The owners will not want to pay Pierce 15.3m next season.

     

    DeAndre Jordan is getting 11m per year. Big Al is way better than Jordan.




    This is an interesting question. If we do want to get into the lottery next year then the best thing for us to do is to trade for picks + expiring contracts or young developing players. The worst thing we could do is get a guy like DeAndre Jordan who is trying to get better and pair him with AB, Rondo Sullinger, Green (all trying to get better) and expect us to lose. Same with Vets who don't want to squander their last basketball years.

    So the best thing to do if we want to get into the lottery is collect draft picks by sending out Lee, Bass, Terry, KG, and buy out PP. We Keep the China crowd to develop their talent. We start Sullinger & Melo. We make Rondo take his time coming back from surgery. And we make Green the go-to guy so he can continue to grow into that role.

     

    So, the question is: Can we lose enough games with Rondo, Bradley, Green, Sullinger, Melo as our starting 5?

    The other question is around timing on Rondo & AB's window. They have two more years under contract each, if next year is lost to 'rebuilding' then that means we have 1 more year with these two before they both are up for much more money. I could see R9R getting close to max, AB's salary will likely double.

    In response to Fierce34's comment:

    Signing Big Al for a reasonable contract makes him an asset. The Celts can later include him in a package for a blockbuster deal.



    But he earns 15 / year. That is not reasonable. Will he give us such a discount to play for the lottery? I doubt it, but if he comes for < 9 / year I'm in.

    If the Celts amnesty Pierce and KG retires, the Celts can go after Dwight, Big Al, or Josh Smith.

    The Celts can only use the amnesty up to 2015. And the only players the Celts can amnesty are Rondo, Bradley, and Pierce.

    Might as well use the amnesty now where it will free up a lot of cap space.

     


    They won't amnesty Rondo or Bradley so apparently you are saying that Pierce s/b amnestied to save $5MM ???

    That's just ridiculous!!!


    If the C's want to dump Pierce w/o taking back another player in return they might be able to trade him for a draft pick and a Traded Player Exception that could be used for another player. Amnestying Pierce s/b a last ditch option ....

     



    If KG retires and the C's are going to try and get as much cap space as possible then they might as well amnesty Pierce, it saves his 5m buyout from being on our cap.

    In that situation it would come down to what has more value, PP's 15.3m in a trade, whatever we get with around the same amount of cap space, or seeing PP retire a Celtic.

    Myself I'd like Splitter for around $8 M/1st year, if he could be had for that.

     

    We'd still need to move a SG for either a BU Point or a BU SF.

     

    we could draft another young center then like Dieng and hope either he or Melo could actually play BU to Splitter.

    With Bass & Sully at PF

     

    Green and vet from trade at SF

     

    Rondo

    Bradley

    Lee or Terry

    Crawford

    Williams

    we'd still have maybe another $4M to use also.
