    Feasibility of free agent acquisitions

    After reading articles on the available free agents the C's could pursue, I am curious about how feasible some moves are. I know there are a number of posters who know much more about cap room and other contingencies. I personally like the idea of considering Brooks, Smith, Landry, and Dalembert. Maybe I am dreaming, but what would be necessary for the C's to make this possibly happen? I would factor in letting BBD, Arroyo, JON, and Sasha OR Wafer to go. Thanks for info on the possibility of such transactions and/or level or illogical thinking.

    Re-sign West, Wafer, Green and Krstic.
    Trade Baby to WAS for Blatche (sign and trade, and they are taking Kanter)
    Give MLE to Crawford
    Sign Chris Johnson from D League
    Draft Vucecic (sp) at 25

    I think that makes us 2 deep at all 5 spots (3 deep at SG and C)

    or maybe sign and trade Baby for Beasley, as it appears MN will be taking Derrick Wiliams!

    Ainge has no choice but to consider Deandre Jordan (my favorite) and Dalembert.

    Good choices, but can't see Dalembert playing for MLE (all we can offer).  Also think Clips will match any offer for Jordan!  But then again, it's the Clips!

    I think we might have missed the boat on Jordan. Rumor is Clippers sending Kaman to Philly for AI, thus guaranteeing them to re-signing Jordan. We need a defensive center that can also score some points. Erden would have been good, but he is gone, I wonder if he is going back to Turkey.

    I liked Erden also. Ainge did a great job in drafting him, idiotic move getting rid of him.

    Danny has done some good things and some bad things.  I am one of the few that thinks long term the Perk trade was good (short term bad as Danny put too much faith in an old, ailing, Shaq).  But, his move with Semih was truly stupid.  If you're getting rid of Perk, why get rid of Semih, as well??????   Maybe its because you get something good in return.  So what did he get.....the 2013 SECOND ROUND draft pick that is coming from Minnesota.  By 2013, Minnesota with its draft picks could be a team close to the playoffs.  So, we'd get a pick in the mid-second round.

    For that, we gave up a center who could have battled for rebounds better than Krstic and Luke (who was worthless, anyway, but why trade him to pick up Murphy who was even MORE worthless?).

    In every way I can look at it, that was a stupid move that just had no logic.  One can argue pros and cons to the Perk deal.  One cannot see ONE POSITIVE of the Semih to Cleveland deal!!!!

    Erden was done for the season when he was traded ... the positive is that Danny got back the draft pick used to pick Erden who was worthless to the C's for the rest of 2011 and possibly 2012 when his contract expires anyway.

    Erden played 4 games for the Cavs this season. How is that done for the season?

    well Kristic is gone so forget about him, he's decided he rather dominate in Moscow than play for a real basketball team. Deandre Jordan (possible trade?), Jeff Green (re-sign), delonte west (re-sign), another big and a back-up point.

    That's why he was traded smart guy .... and when he's healed his contract expires then he may bolt for home.

    Speaking of done ... I'm done with you loser ... you know/contribute nothing and are stuck in first gear with your snide remarks ... keep it up and you'll hear from the moderator. Like I'm the only one on these boards that talks about S&T's ... if you want to keep score check your boy P34 and all the others here otherwise zip it pal!

    Erden was not done for the season, my man.  Check the stats....he played after being traded and any minutes he could have given the C's would have been helpful minutes at the 5 spot given JON getting tired, Perk gone, and Shaq hurt.

    moveover - one cannot assume Semih was headed back to his homeland.  There would be a season of him improving and working his way into the 2011/2012 lineup and then both he AND the team would have had a decision to make.

    But the major point of that is EVEN IF HE WAS LEAVING, getting a 2nd round pick 3 years out from a young improving team is WORTHLESS.   That's a mistake.  I'd rather see Semih play with us for these playoffs and next year and then leave for nothing.  At least we'd get some playing time out of him.   What is a high 2nd round pick in 2013 going to get us for 2014??????

    Agreed, Trading Semih was a mistake by Ainge. We signed Murphy instead, and he never cracked the lineup. We could have used the guy right now

    I agree, check the stats ... he played FOUR games for the Cavs. Sure they (or the C's) could have kept him out there for a few more games but unless you know the nature of the injury you could be making a bad situation worse. The C's decided against playing him anymore, whether they thought playing could make the injury worse or that he would be ineffective is a moot point ... he was done and the Cav's apparently came to the same conclusion scheduling the shoulder surgery.

    Regarding the pick ... it can't be any worse than the one the C's used to select Erden in the first place ... LAST player chosen in the SECOND ROUND 2008!

    Yeah, you're a liar! 

    Erden was done for the season when he was traded? Let me rephrase that, in your delusional world, playing 4 games for the Cavs, after being acquired from Boston, is done for the season?

    If what you're saying is true then Erden SHOULD have not played even one game. Or you could have said Erden was damaged goods when he was traded.

    Keep spinning if you must, but Erden played 4 games for the Cavs after he got traded. That IS NOT done for the season. Maybe almost done for the season, but NOT in any way done for the season, idiot!

    Danny is deep in conference now that he has his son Austin back as Director of Player Development.  You can be sure that we will see someone playing the center position for the Celtics next year.  Maybe it will be the back-up center that played for Austin and the Red Claws (D League) this past season.  There is only one direction the Celtics are going under the guidance of DA---and we all know which direction that is going to be for many years.  

    Remember this, DA knows Basketball Toughness, how to set picks, get loose balls, and rebounds. He truly is a wonder.
