Thats my wish.. It would be sick to see them both dealt to the Clippers and add some real experience. CP3, Crawford, Griffin, Pierce, KG... would be f*cking awesome.

It'd be tough to see that being enough for Boston. Bledsoe is a good young player and Jordan is a legit starting center (despite his issues), but they'd have to take on another year of Caron Butler's deal.

Still, throw in a pick or two and I think you'd have to think about it if you're Ainge.

Clippers don't have anything in the lottery, I'm thinking...Ainge might give it some thought before turning it down if they were at least that.

The only way I could see it is if Ainge really wanted to move KG's deal and this was the only thing he'd accept.

I don't think Ainge wants to move him for anything less than a Dwight-level deal...a young superstar from a team that wants to win a ring in the next year or two and is a KG away from doing it. Anything less than that and I'm confident he's going to let this team ride it out.

I think KG might just retire this summer. Can't believe he wants to hang around for a rebuilding project.

Pierce is the one that feels more likely to be moved. He'd still be great for a contending team.

If I was Mitch, I make the deal of Dwight/Artest/Blake for Garnett and Pierce. Garnett and Pierce at max has about the same years left as Kobe. Kobe can be even more of a facilitator with Pierce being able to carry the load himself on offense. And you get Pau to play center which I think people believe that is his natural position.

Pau
Garnett
Pierce
Kobe
Nash

I am not sure you lose that much defensively, because Garnett can still be a force on D down low. And fact is, there aren't that many great teams with good post players anyway, aside from Duncan.

As for Howard, this trade makes sense, he can be the superstar that he wants. And if he wants to play with a pass-first all star guard, Rondo can do that better than anyone in this league. (But he will have to wait till next year) And if Dwight don't want to resign, even with a bad back, teams will still pay max for him anyway. He is what, only 26-27?

And for Boston, you get DH which will create fan base if Celtics can resign him to a long term contract. Next year if Boston has a healthy Rondo and DH with another star wing player can be the next Big 3 for at least 3 years.

Or they negotiate them so they can't be forced to go somewhere they don't want to go and actually have a say.

By the way, doesn't KG kinda screw over Pierce cause this motivates them to trade him even more knowing that's the only they can trade KG?

I would cry tears of happiness if Mitch somehow flipped Dwight for Pierce and KG.

Pierce and KG only give a 1-2 year window for a ring, but that's better than being stuck with Dwightmare for 5+ years.

Lakers:

PG - Nash
SG - Kobe
SF - Pierce
PF - KG
C - Gasol



Seeing that lineup would be crazy. Watching them possibly miss the playoffs would be even crazier.


Celtics get Rondo + Howard + Green + Clark to rebuild.



This would never happen of course.
