The Suns would be pretty scary. Say they made a trade with us. Plumlee and picks 14 and 16 for pick 6 and the Clippers '15 pick.
They use pick 6 to add Aaron Gordon and pick 28 to add Markel Brown and then extended Bledsoe, signed Luol Deng and watched Len develop into the talent everyone expects out of him.
C - Len, Frye
PF - Morris brothers, some Deng/Gordon
SF - Deng, some Gordon/Gerald Green
SG - The Dragon, Gerald Green, Markel Brown
PG - Bledsoe, Dragon
The Celtics would come off pretty good after that trade, adding Plumlee (an 8/8 in 24 mins right now) and say picks 14, 16 and 18 used on LaVine, Stauskas and Early.
C - Olynyk, Plumlee, Favarani
PF - Sully, Olynyk, Bass
SF - Green, Early, Wallace
SG - Avery, Stauskas, LaVine
PG - Rondo, Pressey, some Stauskas/LaVine
There are sign and trade options with Humphries and to a lesser extent Bayless
There is the Pierce TPE to use
There is the Bogans nonguaranteed 5 million to use
There are veterans in Green and Bass with favorable contracts we could trade'
There is the Wallace albatross contract that is useful just in case a deal gets so big it needs that 10 million over to years to make it work
And there is always the Rondo blockbuster possibility looming over everything.
