Pierce can not and should not do the heavy lifting against LeBron, Durant, Carmelo, etc. That's why Green is important (well, one reason).

People seem to forget just 2 years ago he's a top 5 prospect. He's extremely skilled for a big.

Credit KG, he's busy with the rook all the time. There isn't a better mentor in the league for a big man. Green gives a spark off the benchm definitely keep him.

I'd trade the hell out of Jeff Green. And one of Lee/Barbosa. Lee probably carries more value, tho I like the way he plays with Rondo, when actually utilized. I honestly think he'd be a valuable starter but Rivers gave up on that early. Bradley has been great but it's funny to see how Rivers was depending on that.

If you trade Green (and Lee as well), who backs up Pierce? 36 year old PP will have to carry the scoring load while also checking LeBron, Carmelo, etc, on a full-time basis. Recipe for guaranteed failure.

For his contract and his play, he is not a good fit on this team.


I could keep Lee, but I could also understand why they wouldn't.


Tho maybe, Lee could play the 3. Green can still be effective, but he could valuable in acquiring a big guy and that's needed.

Because he has serious medical red flags. You can't just cherry pick young players who have gotten lucky with injuries.

Smaller Zach Randolph. However if he's not a headcase like Zach was in his early years, he could have just as good a career. Barring that back injury from becoming too serious.
