Any chance of something like this happening?


Not sure if this would work salary wise or anything, haven't really dug into that. Just more of a thought than anything...

Bos Gets: Tyler Zeller, 2013 Lottery Pick, (Possible Filler)

Cle Gets: Paul Pierce, Fab Melo

If Cleveland ends up out of the top three or four in the lottery, their likely target Porter may be gone. Acquiring Pierce would be the perfect fix for that, also bringing veteran experience to a young team. Melo could prove to be a suitable backup to Varejao, at least in years to come. At the same time however, Cleveland could very well not want to move Zeller and keep him with the young group they're already developing, especially with concern over Varejao's health going forward.

The Celtics, if this trade could work, would have a young center who seems to be developing well enough to assume a starting center role. With the lottery pick, the Celtics could chose to take another prospect center like Olynyk, Len, or Zeller. However, Len is considered a project by many, Olynyk doesn't provide the defensive or rebounding skill the team needs, and Zeller may be more affective in the NBA as a floor stretching power forward. A backup point guard could also be drafted, with highly touted prospects at the position like Trey Burke and MCW projected to go in the early/mid lottery. If Zeller was acquired, drafting a pg may be the route to go.

Anyone think or know whether this trade could work as far as salaries and everything else goes? Seems like it may be a good trade for both teams.

Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
