    Dear Mployee8,

    Great post.  Best post in a long time.  Calling the 2014 draft "overrated" seems like the new trend.  Besides DA, it seems like the whole media is finally recognizing it.  At last everyone is realizing that as good as Wiggins et al are, they're not Shaqs, Duncans, or Lebrons.  And they do not deserve all the attention.

     

    Great thread, too.  For a while, Fierce seemed to be making sense.  In the end, though, you succeeded in exposing him.  Sorry Fierce, no offense.  You can go sit down now.

     

    Loved your trade scenarios.  Especially after you backed it up with the math.  More please, thanks.

     

    Xoxo,

    MITCH

    you're right, i stopped reading after... "(Morrow) has the potential to (be) every bit as good as Ray Allen.." LOL 

    and Wallace, Bradley, Bogans for Gay? HAHA get real. Toronto isn't in business to make the C's better. Why would they EVER even consider that trade?

    If you can get Morrow for as little as a trade exception to be a sharp shooter off the bench you pass on that? Are you crazy? Look at the stats ...

    http://espn.go.com/nba/statistics/player/_/stat/3-points

    As I've said, Toronto is anxious to trade Gay. Not for what he will bring them but to move his $17M in salary so the new GM can continue their rebuild. They are young and getting younger and will need a guy like Wallace to mentor and inspire them. Bogans gives them cap relief and Bradley the same if they let him walk or they could flip him for another asset if they don't/can't resign him. Again, just an exercise to show what could be done and I think (based on what Brad has done with our current motley crew) that a young athletic roster with flexibility up and down the bench is one that could fast break superior talented teams off the court. Doc couldn't manage his starters against such a deep squad ... his starters would be spendt by the 4th qtr.

    i like your effort but i don't see morrow as the next ray allen, i don't see toronto swapping a 27 year old overpaid player for a 31 year old overpaid player, and i don't see that team winning anything. getting asik and gay would reduce DA's flexibility with the lineup and then we would be in a predicament after 2014-15 when Rondo, Gay, and Asik become FA's, Jeff Green the year after that. I wouldn't do it.

    [/QUOTE]

    Hey!  Stop terrorizing #8!  But I agree with you, Morrow sucks.  #8 can be wrong at least ONCE, can't he? 

    Best possible scenario for the C's:

    1. Mossad kidnaps Jordan Crawford and Courtney Lee. 
    2. Brooks, like Fav, breaks out with a killer stat line.
    3. Ainge to Stevens: Hide this weapon, like Fav, on the bench until next season.

    Good analyses throughout this thread but I feel it is too early to speculate about trades since we don't know how good (or bad) we can be until be play better teams. We also have to see what the team looks like as a package after Rondo returns. I'm tired of the Asik idea. What can he do that Sully/KO/ Fav cannot?

    IMHO, the teams we will have trouble matching up with are the ones like Charlotte. We have some size and we have other players with quickness. Charlotte, like some others, has bigs with bulk and quickness. I'm for holding off on other trades unless it is a true big with some strong athleticism (which we may not be able to afford). I think acquiring Gay would take the ball out of JG's hands and Jeff keeps inching closer to being a very solid scorer.

    Let's see what the next 5 games bring.
