    Default Rondo done for the season. Do celtics call for Calderon?

    Rajan Rondo out for the season. I think they have to call Toronto for Jose. Perfect situation rent out Calderon for a year. Than they have extra cap for this summer. I would take a Jeff Green/ Avery Bradley package.

    Are Bargnani and DeRozan not enough $9-10M deals for flawed talent?

    No thank you to Jeff Green.

    Ken Berger: A bit premature, but rival execs speculating Rondo injury will compel Boston to look seriously at moving Paul Pierce before deadline. Twitter @KBergCBS



    Ken Berger: With only $4M guaranteed next year, Pierce could keep a team like Memphis in hunt and solve their future payroll logjam at the same time. Twitter @KBergCBS

    Loyalty at its finest.

    I know people are going to say its a business, no such thing as loyalty, blah blah blah.

    But i think some players are exempt, particularly those ones who made a big difference to the franchise, sure fire hall of famers and those who are lifers at the same time, i.e. Pierce, Kobe, Dirk

    I'm pretty sure Pierce has a no trade clause in his contract. So he'll only be traded if he agrees to it; he's got the loyalty thing covered.

    Nope. Only Duncan, KG, Dirk and Kobe have the no-trade clause.

    Ok, thought I read that somewhere sometime; also not sure all these details are public. You might be right, I'm finding different opions about this on the net, but most sources name only those four you mention.

    If Boston wants to trade for Calderon to make another run this year, they won't trade Green even if we'd want him (which we don't). He's their best bet at defending Lebron.

    I like Jeff Green, I would do a calderon for green trade. He has got great size at the SF position, he defends, and rebounds well, he can shoot the three. Might solve our problems at that position.

    I agree I feel like he would be an upgrade over Landry Fields. If they throw in a draft pick as well would be great.

    Works on paper and your throw in a pick.

    Umm...the Celtics won't try to salvage their season. THey were underachieving and just lost their best player. If they start making trades, they will blow it up. THey may call for Calderon to get his expiring contract, but they will also be tanking. I don't buy for a second that Ainge will try to keep this group together. Ainge is a dick, he'll blow up the team with no hesitation. He may hang on to KG since he gets along well with Rondo, but everyone else will be thrown away to tank for the season.

    I also like Green, but I just don't see the point of getting him if we have Fields, Demar and Ross expected to eat a lot of minutes at the wing, and Ed, Bargs (until we can be rid of him), and Acy eating any and all PF minutes. He could certainly outplay Fields, but to have to pay them a combined 15+ million and neither be really that special....that's utterly terrible roster management.

    There are only 2 ways to unload Fields or Kleiza:
    1. Take back a solid player with an awful contract (Eg Gay), or an injury prone player like Granger;
    2. Package them with say either Jose or Lowry to a team that needs a PG (and prob again take back a shitty contract).
    Adding Green to the mix without unloading one of Field or Kleiza would be as you stated "utterly terrible roster management".
    Also: Lets keep in mind Ross prob needs some minutes at 3 (at least if we hope to see improvement -playing 12-15 mins behind Demar is not enough).

    What about this as an option......Memphis will save money plus get Pierce for a big push to try and win something this year , Boston gets a PG for the remainder of the year plus a SF , we finally get Gay

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=ap8e8se

    add to that a trade to move Bargnani to Denver and we have a real different looking team

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=ajp2een


    Lowry / Lucas/ (sign some 10 day contracts)
    DeRozan / Ross / Anderson
    Gay/ Chandler / Kleiza / Acy
    Davis / Amir / Randolph
    Valanciunas / Mozgov / Gray

    good lord... Gay AND Chandler? I'm afraid your severe optimism might become so extreme that you'd need some medical attention haha

    @MySportsLegion: Celtics could look to the Raptors and trade for either Jose Calderon or Kyle Lowry to make one last run with KG/Pierce. (via CBSSports)
