[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Possible offseason moves to think about..... : Agree I'm not sure who we draft at this point yet, I do like Waiters a lot. If a certain big Danny likes slips out of the top 10, like Moultrie, Jones, Zeller, Leonard and Sullinger... I'd consider trading both picks and Johnson into that 11-16 range to get him.
We know Bass ideally a big minute backup (20-24 mins) and Stiemsma a smaller minute backup, but we have two young STARTERS at guard and can add vets and backups much easier than getting a big man. Still torn on Ray if he returns here or if he will come back healthy enough in these playoffs to even be included in a sign and trade (for Mayo and his QO around 6 million
) If we simply keep the team we have now and add Green, Humphries and Mayo (or a vetand a pick at guard) we'd be pretty scary C - KG (24 mins) Stiemsma (16m) Humphries (8m) PF - Humphries (20m) Bass (20m) Green (8m) SF - Green (20m) Pierce (28m) SG - Avery (32m) Pietrus or Ray or Mayo (16m) PG - Rondo (36m) Mayo, Waiters or a vet like Baron Davis (12m) I'd think Green would benefit most from playing with Rondo
so if he returns its time for Paul to volonteer to be the 6th man like McHale did late in his career. McHale had such a refined low post game that even when his legs were shot he could score on the box against backups. Pierce has his scoring moves down to a science so even at a step slower than he used to be he can dominate backups, stay rested and be a facilitator when Rondo is sitting.

Danny needs to take one from Belichick's book and trade up if that happens for a Big, agreed.
Thought Mayo objected to reporting to Boston killing the Ray trade? As much as I'd like him you have to wonder if it's dead now ... Young fits but if he does well for the Clips he will stay there ... hometown pride and all. Who's left now that Afflalo re-upped with Denver? May have to keep Ray for another year or two.
Can't wait to see Green running with Rondo, Bradley and Humphries!
And don't forget the possibility of Wilcox coming back at C/PF since his surgery apparently was successful.
KG - Wilcox - Steamer
Humphries - Bass - Moultrie (?)
Green - Pierce - Pietrus
Bradley - Ray - Moore
Rondo - Bradley - Dooling (?)
