    Sacrifice this Season. Rebuild Now.

    This dog can't hunt.  Even a minor (Rondo only trade) is futile.  We need to move old players now while there is still high value for competitive championship teams this year...then work the new younger players for a bit of experience this year. and if that means we don't make the playoffs, then we will be in position for a lower first round pick.

    Here is what I would do:

    Trade Rondo
    Trade Allen
    Trade Pierce

    Keep Garnett and his expiring contract for a stud FA next year.  
    Keep Bass
    Keep and Play JJ much more (key backup next year)
    Keep and Play Bradley much more (key backup next year)
    Keep Bass
    Keep Wilcox (big men seem to go down more frequently)

    Resign Green

    Daniels, Dooling, Moore, Pavlovic, Pietrus, Stiemsma and JON are all dispensible as part of package trades for Rondo, Allen and Pierce.

    We should be able to get 3 high quality starters and a couple good bench players with the above trades. Garnett Cap allows us to sign a 4th high quality starter. and Green steps into 5th starting role next year with JJ, Bass and Bradley coming off the bench...and we're back in Championship contention in half a year.

    Pull the Trigger Danny!!!!

    i wouldn't call trading rondo a minor trade....  we just need some additional post presence. danny should be able to find that somewhere for cheap. add in some decent fortune regarding health and the Cs can very reasonably become a team no one wants to play come playoff time. this is not a far fetched notion, in fact i anticipate such a scenerio. besides, pieces are already in place to retool nicely after the season without jumping the gun with a premature blowup.

    Who will they put fear in the hearts of?  Miami? Chicago?  So they are a team Philly may not want to play?  Indiana?

    i'm looking to get as far as the second round this year, jdm, and don't anticipate beating miami or chicago though i'd relish the opportunity to try. yes, i think the potential sum of our parts can serve us very well against any eastern team aside from heat or the bulls. for me, that's more than enough reason not to throw in the towell at this early juncture.

    Sacrifice this season? What season? Boston is 7th seed in an inferior conference with no chance of advancing past the first round (provided they get there) and little to trade with. Sacrifice this season.....Boston's season has already gone!

    The difference is that L.A. WILL pull the trigger in a few days on a major trade to keep competitive pace. Danny either wrongly thinks this team may possibly be competiive this year before rebuilding with far less flexibility or he wants too much in trade exchange for Rondo, Pierce and Allen. We all know that draft choices, even first round picks, are occational hits but mostly misses. We Can't expect immediate help from the draft next year. We need to get our talent through trades now and a FA or two with more cap space.
