i'm not trying to unload Rondo- but here is the only way we get a young big guy. It has to be via trade, as no bigs worth a darn will be FAs (and Howard wants to be in LA). With one deal, we can get a big man, and stick it to the Lakers. I'm not sure this would work money wise-- but its a thought. 3 way trade: (This assumes we will keep Bass / Kg / Pierce/ Pietrus next year))
Clippers get: Howard, Daniels, Reddick
Orlando gets: Rondo, Foye, Bradley, JJJ, O'neal, + 1st round picks ( from clips + celts)
Orlando gets to rebuild around young athletic players + picks. They could flip Richardson etc to minny for Beasly or a big. Boston gets 2 bigs plus young PGs. Sign wilson Chandler or JR smith next year if Allen is gone.
LA gets their guy that will resign to play with Paul.
Celts look like this: Nelson, Pierce, Pietrus, KG, Jordan
Bledsoe, Moore, Allen, Bass, Anderson
Pavlovich, Wilcox, Stiemsma (Chandler/Smith)
Rebounding solved- interior defense better. kG and Allen could slide to 2nd unit next year. Could we draft and rebuild quicker? i don't think so. Bledsoe has more potential than Bradley as scorer (not defender). Nelson can shoot well and probably can handle the ball as well as Bradley. Not sure Orlando parts with Anderson- but they could trade with sac or Minny for replacement (thompson?) - and could be fun to watch. They have to get something for Howard- this would be better for them than Bynum IMO. What the heck.... what do you think?
