In response to rameakap's comment:
That gives the Clippers 4 SF's and leaves them with Odom, Hollins, Griffin and Turiaf at the 4 and the 5.
Not a smart ideas for them
I realize that now. I was hoping with Jordan and KG together we could move Green to the other forward. The Clippers can't go without a big.
The smartest move is still finding a way to make it a 3-teamer.
1. Give the Clippers both PP/KG (so the no-trade can be waived if Paul goes too and the Boston fans can happily root for both guys on the same team, going for a title, near their homes, and making the Lakers take a backseat and look worse)
2. Get Jordan and Smith here as the centerpieces.... if Danny is not trading Rondo then adding his buddy, 8 years PP's junior, with a vet like Butler, is a good alternative to having PP and Bledsoe
3. Sweeten the deal for LA with more vets like Terry and Wilcox (a former Clipper) to help in their title run and sweeten it for Atlanta with Melo (expendable now that we'd have Jordan).
Clippers - KG, Pierce, Terry, Wilcox
Hawks - Bledsoe, Odom (exp contract), Melo, Bass, a Clippers '14 1st
Celtics - Smith, Jordan, Butler, contracts from LA like Willie Green and Hollins, maybe a guard from the Hawks like Jenkins (or swap Lou Williams for Lee, same $)
