Before I start with the discussions, I would like to say I'm looking forward to Jeff Clark breaking down and explaining Danny Ainge's Conference from earlier.
Now, before I write anything else, none of these are rumors or have any sources. Just some discussions with other Celtics fans.
By the looks of it, I think Danny Ainge is making this Rondo's team. Whether or not that crap about him and Doc were true, last season the entire team came out publicly and said that its his(Rondo) team.
BTW, I still can't believe Ainge is doing this. Now the other rumors of Josh Smith possibly becoming a Celtic if Pierce is gone. Or should I say when he's gone. If this rumor about Smith is true, then the statement above is correct about it being Rondo's team.
I almost wonder if Ainge is trying to trade Pierce for the Cav's #1 pick. Not sure how that would work tho, if he would be traded by himself or would they possibly add others to the list. Meaning player or players like Brandon Bass or Courtney Lee and the C's #16 pick and get a big man like Anderson Varejao too.
Then there's KG. Everyone in the NBA saying there can't be another trade between the Clippers and Celtics this offseason to move KG. I think if Ainge can pull off something that's interesting enough for KG, maybe he can convince him to stay.
There are players like Crawford, Williams, Randolph, White, and Wilcox. Me personally, if the C's can move Lee, you can keep Crawford for garbage minutes between him and Terry. Williams showed he can be a point forward. Randolph showed he can be valuable like Sully. For White and Wilcox, they won't be on the team when the season starts.
Lastly, what coach will be the best fit for the New Boston Celtics? I've heard so many names. From the ones I've heard, I'd go in this order from valuable to least value..
I wrote McHale because of KG. If he were to coach, it would be very convincing for KG to return to the Celtics.
From what I wrote above, this could be a possible roster lineup (not real)..
Bradley / Terry/Crawford
Green / Williams
Smith / Sully/Randolph
KG? / Varejao? Melo?
P.S. draft choices for me would be, if they can get the #1 pick, Nerlens Noel. If they keep #16, Giannis Adetokunbo
