    Don't "DUH" me again.  Not saying this will happen, but it could happen.  We have two first round picks, perhaps we swap that and some bad contracts for a lottery pick.  We are all just speculating here, and if you care about the responses, then you will use proper decorum.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: What's so bad about be a Lottery Pick? : But the Celts are only allowing the opponents to shoot 41.7% from the field. That's 2nd best in the NBA right now.  Allowing the opponents to only score 87.2 ppg and limiting them to 41.7% from the field is great defense. And if you still don't believe, the Celts are #1 in 3pt FG% defense, only allowing the opponents to shoot 29.1% from beyond the arc.

    Maybe that is because teams have their way with the Cs in the paint and do not have to shoot 3s or maybe it is because the guys that shoot 3s against them are not that good....

    At some point not winning games will render all of the defensive stats completely irrelevant.... kind of like saying the Pats gives up tons of yards but not many points but not raising a trophy for 7 straight Februarys......

    If the Cs return home 16 and 18 but lead the league in defense and continue to play teams missing their best players will that make them a good team?

    Given our current trade situation (players in the twilight of the careers and one  with questionable assets) it difficult to see how we can get those top  5 picks without tanking for a season or three. Maybe we should all prepare to start  looking at the C's as a renovation project with an  undetermined timetable.

    DA has said he doesn't want to re-build through the draft

    We are less than a month away from the trade deadline. I think Danny will be working overtime to trade 1-2 of the big 4 to upgrade this team for this year and beyond. To me the most telling piece of information that was revealed in the news lately came during gasol for rondo rumors. It was the report from "celtics sources" that they don't believe rondo is a player that they can build around. That kind of information does not get out about the player that is arguably the face of the team unless they are actively shopping him. If that is the case, I hope Danny can bring back Gasol or Williams for Rondo

    A team cannot trade a player with an expired contract after that contract is over.
    Name one example in the history of the NBA in which a team traded a player who was on an expiring contract without a sign and trade before 7/1.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: What's so bad about be a Lottery Pick? : Until now your mouth is still bigger than your brain.  The minimum team payroll in 2010-11 was $45 million; only one team, the  Sacramento Kings , flirted with it. (It's widely held that a midseason trade for injured  Marquis Daniels  got the team over the minimum salary threshold, but the league uses total salary paid as the mechanism to determine whether a team violates the rule. The team was over the threshold before trading  Carl Landry  for  Marcus Thornton  in February -- before the Daniels deal -- and would have paid out just more than $45 million on the season before taking on Daniels.) http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2011/11/26/2588074/nba-lockout-2011-minimum-payroll-salary-cap Worry about the minimum team salary in February 2013, not June 30, 2012.

    A team like Detroit is not going to give up a lottery pick for a team to take a bad contract or two. They will have to fill that salary with someone anyway. What free agents are going to flock to Detroit?

    After Ben Gordon torched the Celtics you guys are willing to have Boston take back his "bad contract" and take their lottery pick.

    Keep dreaming.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: What's so bad about be a Lottery Pick? : The  Los Angeles Clippers  have reached an agreement in principle to send  Baron Davis (notes)  to the  Cleveland Cavaliers  for  Mo Williams (notes) ,  league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Cavaliers will also get an unprotected 2011 first-round pick from the Clippers while sending back forward Jamario Moon (notes) . http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slug=ys-daviswilliams022311 That unprotected pick turned out to be Kyrie Irving. If Ainge or the Celts only want a top 5 lottery pick, not the 1st pick overall pick, the Celts can move KG's contract on draft night for bad contract/s and a lottery pick.

    Baron Davis didn't have an expiring contract lik KG does.
    Your idea is pure fantasy.

    The LAST thing Boston needs to do is trade Rondo.
    F34 is so obsessed with trading Rondo for Gasol that I'm starting to think that he has some feelings for Pau.

    A team cannot trade an expired contract.
    Name 1 time in the history of the NBA that this happened.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: What's so bad about be a Lottery Pick? : You really have the mind of a Goldfish. That's why the Cavs took on Baron Davis' contract so that they can get the Clips' lottery pick. Bad contract for a lottery pick. Is that so hard to understand? Cavs' Trade for Baron Davis Was All About the Draft Pick INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- What does a rebuilding team do when it wants draft picks to help recover from the departure of the league's two-time MVP? It trades another of its popular players for a first-round pick, and agrees to take on almost $28 million in salary for an aging, oft-injured point guard. http://www.aolnews.com/2011/02/24/cavs-trade-for-baron-davis-was-all-about-the-draft-pick/

    Baron Davis did not have an expired contract.

    The contracts are over once the team has played their last game.
