In response to R9R's comment:
Danny also has 9 first round picks over the next five years to work with. They can totally rebuild in 3 years to the point where they are in the ECF.
Keep Rondo, trade picks, Green, KO, Sully, and Brooks along with draft picks for vets like Aldridge, Horford ... shooters like Hayward or in 2015 go after big free agents like Lopez or Gasol
Come on, man, teams will not trade the likes of Aldridge or Lopez for our 1st rounders that are in the 20s.
Remember, out of the 9 draft picks you're talking about half of them are from either the Nets or Clips. Both teams are playoff teams.
And guys like Hayward or Horford will not take you to the ECF.
Horford and the Hawks have been trying to reach the ECF since 2008.
Think about it, contending teams guys like Lebron, Durant, Rose, and Kyrie Irving, in the near future, and you're saying the Celts will be just as good if they had Horford and Hayward.
[/QUOTE] Horford if he is the third best player. Hayward is no better than what we have now.
