Boston and Indiana might need a third team to make the S & T for Daniels work and New Jersey can possibly be the third team after they showed their interest in BBD. But what can Boston possibly get from New Jersey?
According to rumors Yi was offered to Boston in exchange for BBD but Boston balked at the offer. I would too. Yi has a lot of upside (he's more of a Euro type big man) but I rather prefer that Boston gets a legitimate big man who'll thrive at the low post. Brook Lopez will be a great replacement but with him being NJ's best big man I doubt that they will release him. Josh Boone and Sean Williams are the two other options with Boone holding an edge over Williams based on statistics and off-court antics (Williams has been into some trouble since college) but both are known for their passable defensive skills that Boston might be able to harness further.
But I would still prefer to see BBD in green. If BBD goes in exchange for a ho-hum replacement, Boston will be left with Perkins as it's only remaining big man of the future. The experience that BBD has and will continue to get as long as the Big 3 are playing is immeasurable and he can utilize this to further hone his skills and be a better player than he is at now. A core of young guys in Rondo, Perkins and BBD will also be helpful for the team if they intend to be a long time contender in the league.
If the deal pushes through though this will be a big disappointment for BBD's career: NJ is no playoff contender even if BBD drops 20 and 10 a night the next season. NJ's salary cap space can be a consideration for BBD to play for this team as it give's them a chance to grab one of the big names on next summer's free agency but it's no guarantee plus NJ is known to have some serious financial issues right now.
I would agree that basketball is also a business and BBD deserves to get paid what he and his agent believes his worthy of after he's strong showing in last season's playoffs but to earn more than $5 million a year for a losing team is bad business BBD.
