I know how potential trade ideas aren't very welcome around here, but I've got one. I don't know really get why the Clippers would want KG, but if so:
LAC- Kevin Garnett
BOS- Tyreke Evans, DeAndre Jordan
SAC- Eric Bledsoe
LA gets KG, Boston gets younger, and Sacramento/Seattle gets Cousins an ex UK teammate to try to keep him happy/under control.
Giving up Jordan and Bledsoe for 2 years of KG is way too much.
I completely agree, I don't see how he fits in except that he has Finals experience. He's practically non existent on offense except for screens and 17 foot jumpers. I know he'd be traded for because of his defense and leadership but I don't see it. Especially if they give up Deandre.
KG has said that he wont waive his no trade clause unless Pierce is traded; he recently denied a trade to Denver
Only Terry,KG, and Peirce are older players. Rest of the team is young early 20's or mid 20's. You add veterans to a young team anyway. C's are not youth hunting with only 3 older players. 5 straight and looking good. I doubt they make any deal using PP or KG this season.
Well let me rephrase, adding Evans and Jordan to their team for next year gives you (potentially)
Jeff Green should start but won't since Pierce is there. Rondo and Jordan would be a great duo together. I think the only thing you're missing is a consistent one on one offensive threat since Pierce is obviously not that player any more, and that's where resigning Evans becomes critical: do you think he can become that player for you? Wisdom says not and both he and Rondo need the ball in their hands. But hypothetically this makes the Celtics better now and in the future.
