Allen to Miami as Wade's back-up. Seriously, can Bradley handle either? Worse, both???

This is a defensive nightmare for any SG rotation in the league! With all due respect to Bradley's defensive showing last season, this time around he will certainly get so exhausted chasing these superstars/super shooters around. Should the C's just tweak their current roster to go longer at the SG position? Put Terry as Avery's reliever? Just leave Terry as Rondo's back-up, and just re-inforce Avery with 2 long and grade-A defensive UFA's with SO-SO offensive arsenal? Re-inforce Bradley with superstar UFA's with SO-SO defense?

Let's go back to their current roster and payroll to gain some financial perspective, take note of the log jam in the PF position, and try to speculate on some possible roster tweaking/s, especially in the SG, SF and PF positions:

PG 1. Rondo 6'1" $ 10.50M
2. Terry (PG/SG) 6'2" ??? Non-Taxpayer MLE >>> To sign $5M/yr x 3yrs (MLE) after Jul 2012 moratorium
3. Moore 6'4" $ 0.50M >>> Can be a part of any S&T
SG 4. Bradley 6'2" $ 1.52M >>> Out for the first 2-3 months if the 2012-13 season to recover from surgery?
5. ??? ??? >>> Probably Acquire FA via Non-MLE or Trade Exceptions (S&T)
SF 6. Pierce 6'7" $ 15.33M
7. Jeff Green 6'9" ??? >>> Agrees to sign; Most probably Non-Bird Exception @ $9M min x 4yrs
8. Joseph 6'7" $ 0.50M
PF 9. Bass 6'8" ??? >>> To sign $6.7M/yr x 3yrs (MLE) after Jul 2012 moratorium
10. Sullinger 6'9" $ 1.10M
11. Williams 6'10" $ 0.05M >>> Can be a part of any S&T
12. JJJ 6'10" $ 1.00M >>> Can be a part of any S&T
C 13. KG 6'11" ??? >>> To sign $11.3M/yr x 3yrs after Jul 2012 moratorium
14. Melo 7'0" $ 1.00M
15. ??? ??? >>> Probably Acquire FA via Non-MLE or Trade Exceptions (S&T)
TOTAL Payroll $ 31.50M
Soft Salary Cap $ 58.04M
Luxury Tax Threshold $ 74.01M

SIGNING ORDER AFTER MORATORIUM:

Exceptions Payroll level after signing
1. KG 6'11" $ 11.30M $ 42.80M
2. Bass 6'8" $ 6.70M $ 49.50M
3. Terry (PG/SG) 6'2" $ 5.00M Non-Taxpayer MLE $ 54.50M
4. Jeff Green 6'9" $ 9.00M Non-Bird Rights $ 63.50M
5. ???

6. ???

So, any surprising speculations as to what Doc and Danny have in store?
