Jared Sullinger's Potential

There's been talk of trading Jared Sullinger for the likes of Kevin Love. In the NBA the saying has been whatever team gets the best player wins the trade.

Let me start out by saying I love Jared Sullinger. Great player. Hard worker.

But I loved KG and PP and I fully supported trading them to the Nets. This is a business. And the business of the Boston Celtics is to win championships.

Here we compare Sullinger to Kemp, Love and Nowitzki in their 2nd years (all age 21):

Sullinger is the lesser of the four, but he's in the same league. My projection for Sullinger is 18-10. Not a great defender. If anyone has a different opinion and some facts to back it up I would love to hear it.
