[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Can the C's risk losing Baby in a deal for Rudy Fernandez? : For the last 2 years Davis has been doing a good job backing up KG. Trading him will only disrupt the continuity of the 2nd unit. The Celtics just need to add a backup Center, not trade the backup PF for a backup C. Von Wafer can't be traded for 3 months.
Right now all the Celtics have is Sheed's contract and a pick. The Von Wafer signing is also an indication that Fernandez is not going to Boston.

First off you advocated a S&T for J Howard that involved that very same problem - the C's couldn't get him until 12/15, you forget that?
What's wrong with adding a backup center and swingman that will grow with the C's for the next three years on the cheap if it's doable. Beats having Daniels even if he does come through this year cause then he wants $5m next year as a FA.
Once you've obtained another legit C, whether from Portland with Rudy or Shaq via a three team deal with the Cavs then you have the luxury of playing JON as PF and C and BBD isn't so important. JON wanted to be the starting center and he will be. Then when KG needs a blow or is in foul trouble Shaq comes in at C and JON moves to PF. When Perk comes back he and Shaq man the C and JON backs KG and helps out at C as needed.
You could also trade Daniels and or Wafer at that point for another PF ... or pick one up after teams make their final cut with the VM ... Have you figured out yet how many of those VM's a team gets yet? Oh, and what happened to that Tolliver signing? Thought you said he was gone ... didn't he play for Portland last year too? He'd make a nice PF to replace BBD if it were to come to a multi-player/team deal.
Check the numbers:
A) Shaq (6.3m), Rudy (1.2m) & Tolliver (1.5m) to C's for Sheed (6.3m), BBD (3m) #1 Pick
B) Sheed (6.3m), Bayless (2.3m) & Przybilla (7.4m) to Cavs for Shaq (6.3m) & Mo Williams (9.3m)
C) Mo Will (9.3m), BBD (3m) & #1 pick to Portland for Przy (7.4m), Tolliver (1.5), Bayless (2.3m) & Rudy (1.2m)
