    Need to see if they want to waive Bynum.....(us)

    If we are aquiring him to waive him, that's too much

    If we want to keep him and develop him........that's a different story.

    I don't think Houston was really interested in Bass and Lee.

    It was more Houston using Boston's offer for Asik to lure other teams to top Boston's offer.

    But no other team wanted to give up more for Asik.

    [/QUOTE]

    That could be very, very true. More true than most realize. 

     

    Houston is not in a position where they are desperate to get value back for Asik. They acquired him in free agency and with Parsons, Harden and Howard, they will be in a position to attract the top free agents when Asik and Lins contracts expire.

    I actually think that they may be more interested in Humphries & a pick for Asik than Bass & Lee, although I would want both Bass and Lee if I were the GM.

     

    Humphries would expire a year earlier than Asik. They would get the pick and the flexability to go sign the right free agent  and then even resign Hump at a friendlier deal if interested.

    He's not worth all that...he's a one legged center who costs too much and no longer wants to play even if he can play....why not just trade Bass and Lee for Asik?

    Re: cavs-bos-hou

    This rumor floated by WEEI makes some sense based on stories that indicated the Cavs would take Green from The C's if Houston gave Asik to Boston.

    ".... why would it make sense for the Celtics to part with their leading scorer? Ainge’s stockpiling of first-round picks is no secret, and by cutting Bynum before Jan. 7 (or even at season’s end), he could shave as much as $36.5 million off the cap through 2016 by shipping Green and Lee’s $15 million combined annual salaries. Such a deal slices the C’s guaranteed commitments to just $35.5 million next season, offering complete flexibility on the free agent market while landing a third first-round pick for the league’s most loaded draft in a decade.

    Suddenly, trading Green for Bynum doesn’t seem so strange. And if Cleveland won’t take on the remaining $11.1 million due Lee after this season, Ainge might assuage those concerns by including Keith Bogans instead, still saving the Celtics $25.5 million through 2016. This is the kind of creative thinking that expedites the rebuild."

    I thought this was absurd until I read the article about cutting salary and picking up a pick. It all makes perfect sense. I hope the Cavs would be willing to do it. It benefits all teams involved.

    The Cavs need a SF and Green would mean they wouldn't need a top 3 pick and since Bennett looks like a complete bust.

    I wouldn't keep Bynum...he's done. It's all about that pick.

    What a treat if the Celts can get 4 2014 1st rounders and 2 or 3 will be lottery picks!

    That's building through the draft.

    Right, Mployee?

    HAHAHA




    Right, but Bynum isn't a Celtic yet ... Haha!

    The Cavs trading Bynums contract and a 2014 pick for Green/Bogans makes alot more sense than Wallace now doesn't it?

    But it brings us back to building through the draft.

    I mean if the Celts get another lottery pick by sacrificing the team's leading scorer, it obviously points toward the direction of building through the draft, right?

    It's some guys idea from WEEI .... not even a rumor from league media types so don't get too excited. You jump off another cliff and a few more lemmings are likely to follow you .... Come to think of it, that wouldn't be so bad ... Go ahead, JUMP!!!!
