Possible future Celtics


For years I have used a point system to value player potential. These are grades given using the current player stats

prorated for 48 minutes.NBA players tend to peak at about 28 years old.They tend to appreciate or depreciate from that age at about 5% a year. My reasoning is that if you are building,getting players younger than 28 with high potential is the way to go.I offer the following comparisons of this years team and players that fit my definition of replacements.All of these players are free agents and all are making less than $3 million this season.I use 3 ratings overall-off-defense'

Player -pos ageNov12 -MPG-overall-off-def Team- player-pos-age- MPG overall-off-def 2012 salary

I would hope to resign KG at a decent cap figure.
