I think winning a title with AI and Pierce is way more likely than hoping a couple of tall benchwarmers develop into superstars.
In order for Telfair/Green/Jefferson to develop into a contending tandem, they would not only have to exceed all realistic expectations put upon them, but they would have to out-develop the much better young cores that other EC teams have.
I really think that if you're Danny Ainge, you have to face the facts, and do one of two things:
A: Trade away your rookie contracts for a guy like Iverson that will give you an outside chance during each of the next three years.
B: Trade Pierce away for a couple draft picks, and hope you can assemble a young core that is superior to all the ones I listed above.
Would anybody here take Telfair/Green/Jefferson over any of those young cores I listed? I think every one of those groups is better.
