In response to Fierce34's comment:
Celts have 5 days off before they play the Nuggets on Tuesday. If there's a right time to make a trade it's within the next 5 days.
Tonight's game against the Bulls was a preview of things to come in the playoffs. It's very clear the Celts need another big man or a scorer. Actually the Celts need both, but if the Celts can't get both then at least try to get one of the two. What Ainge can't afford to do is do nothing.
Fierce...you understand Salary Cap, Mid Level Exception, D-League Pool, Foreign players etc....can we do anything below I suggest ???
Just amazing that vs Bulls we scored 11 in the 2nd and 8 in the 3rd and won. The much maligned Bass...seems # 1 choice for being traded...was our highest scorer with 14. Both teams shot 37%. The Bulls, however, won the rebound battle 49-39 so 10 second chance shots. Hmmm ??? How did we win ??? Our defense was terrific causing 22 turnovers so these, like rebounds, are extra chances. Just think if we could win the rebound battle or just break even.
Firtly, let me say I like Rondo, Sully & Barbosa & Fab Melo(dunno?) but I would be willing to first try to trade Sully, Barbosa & Melo before Rondo to get Cousins or Gortat. Re: they are injured I cite the Red Sox trading Carl Crawford to the Dodgers last year while recovering from surgery so they took him on the come. Obviously, toss in Collins too and, if needed, unload Bass and even give up 1-2 draft choices. With a Big Man and I know I'm dreaming and Reddick, we'd be major contenders and all w/o a legitimate PG !!!
