In response to hondorondo's comment:
I would take David Lee for Pierce in a heartbeat and through in a reasonable pick as well, if needed. I think the possibility of getting Barnes is highly remote since we have no additional valuable assets that Ainge would be likely to part with (for good reasons). I agree that Lee does not solve the lack of a big man in the middle problem. However, he is a decent rebounder and can score. As others have said, he could come off the bench. He could also start with KG and Green. Before anyone else repeats the "no rebounding" chant, a quality big man (if we find one) could still play 30 minutes a game. If the team is running smoothly and effectively, who starts and who does not will be a minor worry.
I am not ready to give up on JET yet. He, Rondo, and Bradley could rotate. This would give opponents different looks as we all know the style the C's play is different when Rondo is on the court vs. when Terry or Green is bringing it up.
Good Points. I really think Danny will be calling up the GM over there and talking through the various possibilities. Getting back anything with value under 36 in age will be a win. If we can pry one of those young guys from Golden State ... even better.
Count me in on the 'not given up on JET yet' band wagon. JET needed time to get comfortable with the system, Doc, the new team. I also think the team didn't exploit JET's strengths. He isn't really a come off the screen 3 pt shooter. He can do that, but it isn't what won him a title in Dallas. He won in Dallas by nailing a series of transition threes. This team needs to remember that JET hits a high percentage of transition threes. So next year, every rondo & bradley steal, every outlet 1/2 court pass, and the one offensive rebound we get per game should all look to JET in transition. He is not Ray Allen. Stop using him that way.
