    In Response to Use Perk to get that elusive SF:
    I have been begging for Danny to get a tall SF who can defend, hit the occasional 3, and rest Paul since the day Posey left us. Danny has responded with Tony Allen, Marquis Daniels and Von Wafer, all SG's. PLEASE DANNY!!! Complete this team. Make a trade for a REAL SF. With Shaq here Perk is no longer needed. Maybe he could return to full health by the playoffs and be a slightly better option that Shaq, but I doubt it. A quality 6th man SF for the entire season who can then share some defensive duties w/ PP in the playoffs is FAR moere important then eventually working Perk back into the rotation. Sheed, Perk and our #1 pick represent enough value and $ savings for someone to part with a player we'd really need. My #1 choice is Tayshaun Prince.

    I think Perk and his expiring become more valuable as the year goes on.  How about Sheed's ghost and a pick for Battier?

    Battier would be the best to add to this team. I think Houston is going to have to trade someone, hopefully its him

    Good post.  I've been saying the same thing on other posts - Ainge could package either Perk or BBD with Sheed's contract and get a pretty good wing.  Not sure the C's even need to throw in a 1st.  Personally, I think I'd rather keep BBD, but I'm afraid Perk will be devalued because of the injury.

    Perk does not have good trade value currently due to his knee injury. He is also a free agent at the end of the season.
         I have a gut feeling that Von Wafer will be a very good backup. He's big enough to play both 2 and 3 positions. He shot 39% from 3 point range in 09. He's also very athletic.
         Daniels is a solid backup. He lacks some skills, but the C's could do much worse for a reserve.
         IMO, I think the current C's team is set. Shaq sealed the summers dealings. Danny went out on a high note regarding this summers work.

    I agree. As I said in another string, I thought Sheed taking his time on his decision to retire may have forced Shaq's hand to take the vet minimum. That said, this is what we should know in the next week or so...

    -If Shaq did indeed take the min?
    -Which bench contracts (Erden, Von Wafer, etc) are actually guaranteed?
    -If DA will be using Sheed's contract to get Battier or another SF?
    -If Sheed is actually retiring?

    ...Then DA can go golfing in Utah.

    Battier would be a great pickup. Hopefully Houston will deal him.

    Perk is a major part of the Celts and should not be traded for anyone not a allstar.  He is a major part of out future also.  His value is not undrstood by many on this board.

    I agree, your gonna trade arguably your best defender for someone who is gonna come off the bench. No way that should happen. I think people are over estimating the impact that Shaq will have on the Celtics, either that or over reacting to Perks injury. Not to mention that both the O'Neals are both old men on the downside of their careers compared to Perk, who is getting better every year.

    Perk is important to this team. JO has been terrible for the past few years. Look how he performed for miami this past post season when the C's played them. Shaq is good for 10 minutes a game and is nearly 40. Perk has been claimed by many sports announcers to be the best post defender in the league.

    I agree about Prince. He is my number 1 wing player, but i would not trade that much for him. We can get posey or battier for just sheeds contract. And the ppl here that are putting BBD in trade talks are crazy. Especially when paired with perk. That would leave us with only the oneals as big men.

    Dont underestimate Perk. And there is no one out that we can get that would add more to this team than BBD.

    i agree that our best option right now is to turn sheed's contract into a 3 or a 2/3. but i also disagree with those of you who think that perk is so good. he's slow as can be and has hands of stone. i have not seen him get any better in 3 years. he still can't set a pick without getting called for it. the oneals for perk is a wash IMO.

    Gerald Wallace has re-signed with Charlotte for two years.

    Battier or Posey?

    I really don't care at this stage!!

    Wafer at 6'5" and Daniels at 6'6" would get eaten alive by the likes of Lebron, Carmelo & Durant.  We need a taller, stronger and more athletic 3 to deal with the league's elite scorers.

    You don't know the players well.

    A. Jermaine O'Neil had a high sprain ankle injury when Miami played BOston in the post season.

    B. Shaq can give an honest 16-24 quality minutes per game still.

    C. SInce the C's literally have half the entire NBA's quality bigmen on their team now, and minutes can be kept low for all, wear and tear will be at a minimum. Performance for all should go UP. None of the C's PF's or C's will be expected to carry the team for any stretch run, or even for a single game literally. You literally have 5-6 bigs who on any night can give you 20 plus points.

    No Posey or Battier if Larry Hughes becomes a Celtic.
