My Future Celtic Roster
posted at 7/14/2013 1:50 PM EDT
BOS: Charlie V, 2014 2nd round pick
DET: Brandon Bass, Jordan Crawford
BOS: Trever Ariza, 2014 2nd round pick, Veseley (if needed to make $$ work)
WAS: Gerald Wallace, Marshon Brooks
BOS: Gerald Henderson (S&T for 4 years 32M)
CHA: Kris Humphries, 2015 Clippers unprotected 1st round pick
Rationale: This roster would allow us to sink into the bottom of the standings, while allowing us to play our young guys a lot of minutes. I think the key to tanking next year is playing Melo 15+ minutes per game. At the same time, I believe we make DET, WAS and CHA better, which helps us in the draft. At the end of the season you obviously let Villianueva and Ariza walk.
2014-15 Roster: Rondo (13M), Bradley (4M), Henderson (8M), Green (9M), Olynyk (2M), Lee (5M), Sullinger (1.5M), Melo (1.5M)
2014 Picks: 1st (Celtics), 1st (Nets), 2nd (Celtics), 2nd (Pistons), 2nd (Detroit)
Rough Cap: $45 - $50 (with rookies)
This gets us more picks to move up in 2014, but also to package for another impact player.
