In response to 37stories' comment:
I would do it for Jordan and two picks.. The Celtics need to get younger.
jordan is young, and incompetent. 38% free throws regular season, down to 22% free throws in post season. that's another way of saying "totally useless"
Wow that's pretty ignorant
Multiple C's have been effective players overall while horrible FT shooters. DeAndre was improving 38-45-53 before last season when it was rumored he had a rift with Vinny and his mins dropped.
However, he's a legit C, only 24 years old, can defend the rim and shoots a crazy 63% from the field doing CRAZY stuff like this:
It is established he is slightly overpaid as a 26 minute, 7-8 point, 7-8 rebound, 1-2 block guy. Just have to have a good FT shooting PF who can swing over to C or a backup C for those other 22 mins of the game esp towards the end. Nobody plays 'hack-a-DeAndre' until the 4th.
Jordan makes the $ work and yes Bledsoe is the headliner and more valuable asset... but let's not make idiotic statements like Jordan is 'useless'. Learn the game.
