Default Report: Cavs offer Celtics two second round picks for Pierce

Report: Cavaliers offer Celtics two second round picks for Pierce

Can you say lowball…

The Boston Celtics in the next few days are going to make a decision on whether to bring back Paul Pierce next year at $15 million or buy him out for $5 million (and if he stays or goes will be tied to the decisions of Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett).

The Cavaliers want to help out the Celtics. And by help out I mean steal from. They made a trade offer to the Celtics, reports the News Herald.

The Cavs have likely spoken to the Celtics about small forward Paul Pierce’s availability. The latest rumor is the Cavs offering their two second-round picks for the 35-year-old Pierce. Pierce’s $15.3 million contract for next year would become guaranteed if he’s dealt.

Two second round picks isn’t equal value, but for Boston if you’re going to buy him out, isn’t a couple picks better than spending $5 million?

Cavaliers’ owner Dan Gilbert has said he is tired of the lottery and wants to make the playoffs next year. This would be a step in that direction without shortcutting the rebuilding process much, so it makes sense to at least throw it out there.

Damn...that would be a cold-blooded move by Danny if he accepts.

You NEED to suck big time and get an elite player or two. They are off to a nice start, get 1 or 2 more lottery picks and away you go.

Do it. Helps Cleveland double screw Miami next year. League would probably also be more lenient on the LAC stuff.

Erm, wouldn't we get a TPE? As in, a $15m TPE? As in something we could use to get Josh Smith or Al Jefferson? DEFINITELY DO IT.

Not sure why the Cavs would even wanna do this. Adding Pierce still might not make them a Playoff team. Even if it does, they're a first round exit for the next two years and then Pierce is gone. I only see Pierce getting traded to a team that believes they're a player or two away from contending.

If Cavs are serious about not being a lottery team next year, then throw in a first rounder and you've got a deal.

Pierce is 15 million dollars expiring after this year, just in time to offer that Money to Bron. Cavs make playoffs next year if the get Noel, that SG ey want to trade up for, and Pierce. Plus they would still have about 5 million left to get another impact player.

No way Lebron (or anyone) signs with the damn Cavs, that's a pipe dream. The guy just won his 2nd title in three years in Miami after not winning anything in like 7 years in Cleveland.

Even if they take on Pierce, they could give Iggy up to 9 million dollars a year. Cleveland can easily add #1 pick, #13 pick (trade rumors with Dallas), Pierce, and Iggy.

Just saying.

The article starts out saying that the 5 mill buyout is a realistic option.

In that case how is 2 second round picks and a 15 mill TE a lowball offer?
It's certainly way better than the buyout...

Wouldn't they be taking on Marion in the trade for #13?
