Thinking about the quote from Danny about "Laying the groundwork for some possible moves this offseason" in his interview with the Toucher and Rich. I think we all hope that the firework that the Celtics organization has been talking about is a for a superstar like Kevin Love. But, what about an incremental move that makes us better going into the 2015 free agent market?
I like Sully and Kelly but what if they really need to be split up and each paired with a rim protector? I would entertain the following trade:
3. Keep our 2014 1st pick and hopefully its Aaron Gordon worst case scenario
4. Sign Bradley on an injury-prone discount for a $22M 4yr deal
5. Maybe sign Hump to a 2 year $12M deal, maybe sign Bayless to a 4 year 16M deal
Proceed in 2014 with a core 7 of:
Rondo (12) , Bradley(5), Hayward (10), Green (9), Gordon (3), Olynyk (2), Asik (8)
Celtics would still have their own picks, BKN 2016 and BKN 2018
