I like a trade for Josh Smith, Gortat or Jefferson, particularly Jefferson as he has played with the Celtics before and would be a great one two punch on offense with Garnett and would help Celtics out in the rebounding department. Jazz have one too many frontcourt players and Jefferson or Millsap seem the most likely to go.
If it comes to the worse, maybe offer something for Hamed Haddadi, buried on the bench has some height and talent, but is behind a strong backcourt at the Grizzlies...
Ainge needs to get the rebounding and height sorted before deadline or Celtics won't be contending.
Nope, Ainge will go cheap again and acquire the likes of Ericka Dampier heck he might even ask Ewing or Hakeem to come back from retirement
We all know Ainge, he doesn't have interests on signing quality big men, he'll always go cheap and sign old, injury prone, undersize big men.
His obsession on signing combo guards is disastrous already for the entire Cs organization that its already comes to the point that he forgot to sign a quality big man to replace Perkins. The only impressive signing that he have done for the Cs froncourt is signing a D-Leaguer in Stiemsma who's now having a scrub minutes in Minnesota.
Their problem in the playoffs is always offense, especially from the bench, and they have definitely addressed that.
Celtics don't give a shit about the regular season.
It's hard to cover up an undersized frontcourt. Garnett is good and can play big minutes in the playoffs, but he needs help and also a guy to take some of the load from his older legs. And yes they did improve their bench, Green coming back from heart surgery and sullinger in the draft, so it really wasn't something they went out and improved through trade etc.
If Celtics acquire Gortat or Jefferson without giving up Green, bradley or any of the big three, I think they are favourites.
Jefferson would be tough due to salary. But Gortat is possible.
I think Gortat could help alot. Gortat wants to be more involved in the suns offense(mentioned to Polish press) and that's exactly what he could help the Celtics with, not just now but certainly in the playoffs...
Yeah I agree, Celtics would have to give up green and bass + fillers for Jefferson which I dont think they want to do...
