    11 million would get you a nice Sign and Trade.

     

     

    KG has a no trade clause.

     



    You think if he retires he would stop his contract from going somewhere?

    Also, if the Celts waive Pierce, the Celts can't re-sign him to a lesser deal because the Celts will lose his Bird rights.

    Update, May 5: Pierce does not have a player option as reported above. We regret the error. If the Celtics waive Pierce, NBA rules appear to prevent him from being re-signed for one year.

     



    No one cares. People realize waiving Pierce who mean rebuilding. 

     

     



    Not necessarily. The Celts can waive Pierce then re-sign him if KG retires.

     

    Removing Pierce's 15.3m and KG's 12.4m will result in the Celts being under the salary cap. So even if the Celts don't have Pierce's Bird rights anymore, the Celts can sign Pierce because Pierce became an UFA and the Celts are under the cap.



    The to get under the cap in the method you suggest is very tough to do, and foolish just to sign Pierce again. They still have to pay him 5 million.

    Yes.

     

    Clearly you don't know how the salary cap rules work.

    If KG officially retires then he's not allowed to play in the NBA for at least 1 year and his contract is voided.

    Again, KG officially retires means KG's contract disappears.



    OMG your dense. KG doesn't have to officially retire to retire. Look at the Gary Payton trade. Why was Rick Fox included? Do you really think he would hold up the C's just to prove some 13 year old on the BDC forums right. Watch out you are heading down the path that gets you in trouble all time.

    thanks for the link!!

     

    very helpful in understanding the NBA's cap rules as they pertain to the off-season.

     

    IF KG retires and Pierce is amnestied...the Celtics will have about $13Million in cap space AND a mid-level exception at about $5M the first year....I believe.

     

    if I understand that all correctly then if I were Ainge I would:

    1) go after N. Pekovic-Minn with the cap space. I think he is a RFA however, so Minn may match the deal. But I personally like him as a better option than A. Jefferson (second choice) with the cap space.

     

    2) Use the MLE to sign either JJ Hickson (Port) or T. Splitter (SA).

     

    3) trade either J. Terry or C. Lee to Phoenix for J. Dudley-SF or to Mil for L. Mbah a Moute-SF.

     

    4) draft L. Brown (NC St) or S. Larkin (Mia)- both PG's.

     

    My re-buit roster under the Luxury tax for next year and followung the cap rules in the article;

     

    C- N. Pekovic

    C/PF- JJ Hickson

    C- F. Melo

    PF- B. Bass

    PF- J. Sullinger

    PF- S. Randolph or White

    SF- J. Green

    SF- J. Dudley

    F/G- T. Williams

    SG- C. Lee or J. Terry

    SG- J. Crawford

    SG/PG- A. Bradley

    PG- R. Rondo

    PG- Rookie

    PP avgd 18/5/6. Fans treating him like hes done. WOW. Hes still killing it. 4th highest scoring avg amongst sf's. He still a good starter, and same thing with kg givin us 15/8  with still very good defense and priceless leadership.

    They can each give u 25 very good minutes a game. With a full squad,we could still be a tough out in next years playoffs. While also grooming the youngsters for another year.

    And if  things dont workout, you can explore a trade at the deadline.

    "First of all, the repeater tax for the Celtics would be minimal and not something that would prevent them from making a deal that makes them a contender."

     

    Minimal?

    The Celts refused to give TA an extra 1 year for 3m. That's how frugal the Celtic owners are.

     


    You are right.   Also not resigning Tony Allen was a big mistake.

    "Secondly, there are a number of options to eliminating KG's salary as well as Pierce from the cap hold other than retirement;"

     

    How many teams out there would want a 37-year old KG and pay him 12.4m next season?

    All your possibilities have one thing in common, that KG will not be playing for the Celtics next season. That's something some here are refusing to believe.

     



    Fierce, what about my proposal? A back-room deal where Paul is bought out and signs with the Clippers on a friendly 1 year deal (4M) and then KG is traded for DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe. This way the Clippers get KG and PP for like 16M total. Celtics get two valued pieces that can be traded for the right piece. It a win for the LAC, for BOS and for PP & KG!

    If the Celts don't have KG and Pierce for next season, that means the Celts are a team under the salary cap. Teams under the salary cap don't have the MLE.




    so signing Pekovic or Jefferson couldn't put us over the cap and then we'd get the MLE?
