Interesting possible additions to a Rondo/Love led team.
Possible long term core players: Damian Lillard, Dion Waiters, Lance Stephenson, Klay Thompson, Eric Gordon, Bradley Beal, Jimmy Butler, Aaron Afflalo, Luol Deng, Gerald Green, Melo, Brook Lopez, Marc Gasol, Al Jefferson, Omer Asik, Marcin Gortat, Deandre Jordan.
Shorter term Stopgaps or Glue guys: Paul Pierce, Danny Granger, Trevor Ariza, Pau Gasol, Samuel Dalembert, Vince Carter, Shawn Marion, KG, Shane Battier, Leandro Barbosa
Every player on this list is only signed with their current team through the 2015-16 season only, so they can possibly be acquired through trade as expiring contracts or sign and trade situations, or perhaps the draw of playing with Love and Rondo can actually entice a free agent to choose Boston.
Notice there is no Durant, Lebron, or Duncan on my list as THEY AREN'T COMING HERE!
But there are a lot of great players in the league, not just 3, and a lot of ways to build a winner, not just one.
