If you were Ainge in all of his glory, would seeking out Marcus Camby be a good idea? Guy's 37, and might be looking for a championship ring. We are looking for a solid center, and Camby gives us a tremendous defensive presence. He isn't of much value because of his age, but is still a veteran in this league and a KG Camby front court would be deadly.
We trade Jermaine O'Neal and Glen Davis for Marcus Camby with the Trail Blazers. If this doesn't seem fair to us, we could haggle for a draft pick or something. The Blazers get something out of Camby, who's getting older by the minute, with Jermaine, a younger vet, and a promising Davis. He's starter material that can be a good backup for LaMarcus Aldridge. They could even start Big Baby and move Aldridge to the 5 if they can't find a replacement center. They get more big men and get something good out of Camby.
Us, as the Celtics, have another old man jumping on our bandwagon to Banner 18. And not just any old man, an established inner presence in this league. Plus, he can catch lobs/convert better than Big Baby, so Rondo has another passing partner to work with.
