LaMarcus Aldridge, Present and Future

Would Celtics fans want this trade for LaMarcus Aldridge if it ensured at least one more season with Pierce and KG?

Suns: Gortat, #30 + #57 for Matthews, #10 + #16
Dragic/Matthews/Dudley/Scola/?
Marshall/Tucker/Beasley/Morris/Morris/Frye/Haddadi + #5, 10 + 16

Gortat won't be re-signing. Picks 5, 10 and 16 provide an influx of cheap talent, hopefully more than one will pan out.

Celtics: Bradley, Green + #16 for LMA + #57

Rondo/Lee/PP/LMA/KG
Terry/Crawford/?/Bass/Sullinger/Melo

Because of his age and All-Star talents, LMA can bridge the present and future in Boston. He's a complement to KG: LMA can score as KG slows down, KG can then save his energy for defense. He's also capable of leading with Rondo in the years ahead. Lee and Jet will have to step up in Bradley's absence, that should get easier in the 2nd year.

TBlazers: LMA, Matthews + #10 for Gortat, Bradley, JT + #30
Lillard/Bradley/Batum/JT/Gortat
Maynor?/Barton/Claver/Freeland/? + #30, 38, 40 + 45

That’s a realistic haul for Aldridge, Matthews and a meh lotto pick: All-NBA defender to pair with Lillard, an elite PnR center, a replacement big with the overlooked double-double track record and a low 1st rd pick. Once Lillard, Bradley and Batum round out their games, this team gets scary good.

Kings: JT for Green

IT/Evans?/Green/PP/DMC
?/Thornton/Jimmer/Salmons/Hayes/? + #7 +36

The Kings would jump at this deal, especially with that #7 pick secured. They can find a new big, Zeller for example.
