Think of this......Rondo, Jeff Green,bass, and Bradley via sign and trade-- For Derrick Rose and Carlos Boozer and then we also receive their 16 and 19 picks for 2014 and 2016 and 2018 unprotected first rounders and the potential 2015 Sacramento first founder.. Five pics total.
The money would work; Chicago would be the front runner next year, with a power packed veteran team; without the D rose heartbeat. The Celts could get a surprise in Rose! If Rose blunders, we have a ton of rebuild picks. Rose at 80 percent would be great and Boozer can still offer big man minutes and his 16.8 million is only for a year. D Roses contract goes thru 2017 and could be 60 million worth of agony, or bliss
Rondo is not resigning here( my gut feeling) , Green is a top 50 player and perfect fit for the bulls, Bass replaces boozer and is versatile.. Avery Bradley is improving and already a very good NBA player on both ends( I really don't want to lose Bradley, but teams are going to pay big time for him).
This could work, the Bulls win now, with the addition of three very goodNBA players and All star Rondo.
The Celts could win with Rose and dump Boozers 16.8 million after next season........hmmm more pics in 2015( up to 4 first rounders and a boat load of cap space), I wonder?????
