I‘m curious about the summer of 2015 free agent possibilities. I don‘t see us making a splash this offseason(FA wise) with our limited cap room, but what do you guys think about the summer of 2015? I think with the expirings coming off the books this year and next like Bass, possibly AB, Green, Anthony, Bayless, Hump, Bogans, and the option of cutting the young D-leaguers it seems like we could maybe have enough money to re-sign Rondo and sign another star. We could probably trade Wallace with a future first rounder and make even more wiggle room.
I think if this summer if we end up out of the top 3 draft picks we will make a strong push to trade for a Love or Carmelo type player. It seems to me if we went into next year with Rondo and Love(or Carmelo) as our "big 2", the following summer we could still have the assets and money to sign another star or semi star via free agency. I think Love and Rondo would take a discount to sign with Boston for chances of going after that crucial 3rd piece. Looking ahead I would think we will need a 7 footer, rim protector who can clog the paint, block some shots, and be the defensive anchor we have been missing for so long.
In summer 2015 some of the possible available players will be Lemarcus Aldridge, Tyson Chandler, Robin Lopez, Marc Gasol, Deandre Jordan, Roy Hibbert, Omer Asik, Anderson Varejeao, Carlos Boozer, Al Jefferson. Obviously some are better options for our needs but maybe we could snag one of them. Maybe old friend Perk would come back as a limited backup veteran role player. Thoughts?
