Potential Trade Targets

Hey, so this is my first post, but just wanted to get some feedback from people on what a few of my other celtics friends thinking. As much as we want to enter into the Wiggins sweepstakes, this were other ideas we had.

So far we have potentially 20 players on our rosters (we're probably not going to resign Chris Wilcox)

PG - Rondo, Williams, Lamont Jones, Phil Pressey

SG- Bradley, Lee, Crawford, Brooks, Bogans

SF- Green, Wallace, Kris Josephs

PF - Bass, Sully, Humphries, Kelly Olynyk, DJ White

C- Shavilk Randolph, Fab Melo, Colton Iverson (will play abroad next year)

To me, we need to target a Center and true backup PG via trade or free agency. Now I don't think we can sign a center (Big Al, Pekovic, Hickson, Speights) or maybe we can. But I think we can prob sign a backup pg/starter pg until Rondo is healthy.

The PG I wouldn't mind seeing by signing are Aaron Brooks, Isaiah Thomas, Sebastian Telfair, Mo Williams, Jose Calderson, Devin Harris, CJ Watson. I would say the first 3 would come cheaper and we do have around $10mil in cap space to sign.

To address our center problems...I really think we should try and get Marcin Gortat. Danny Ainge last year packaged a bunch of 2nd rounders and non-guarenteed deals to get Lee. The new GM of the Suns is former assistant Celtics GM Ryan McDonough, maybe he'll throw us a bone. We could get a 3rd team involved, rumor is Bobcats were interested in Humphries (perhaps a trade for Ramon Sessions).

Honestly, I can see us waiving Williams (for those legal reasons), Bogans, and White, keep one of those undrafted PG (Pressey sounds better), and probably include Crawford in one of those trades. Josephs and Randolph may or may not stick around and we could also still trade Iverson since he'll be abroad next season. Fab can also be traded as well.
