    Marshon Brooks and Kris Joseph the possible sleeper steals of the trade

    I am a little bored waiting for the wife while she is shopping but the thought occurred to me that far too much may be given to the draft picks that Boston received from NJ and not enough has been discussed regarding Boston obtaining Brooks and Joseph. I felt that DAinge had made a mistake in not keeping Joseph in the first place as his game was very similar to that of Paul Pierce. So I am really happy about his return. Marshon Brooks isn't called Kobe Bryant without reason as he has a smooth shot and can light up the scoreboard. They will be given the opportunity to showcase their talents. These two guys may turnout to be very nice additions to the Celtics.

    brooks and Crawford are two really good scorers for the 2nd unit, but I doubt they can play together unless iverson turns out to be a heck of a shot blocker.  I expect 1 to be gone.

    I dont know ... it would be really entertaining. Both can ball handle and we saw Crawford make some really smart passes last season. That could be a dynamic second unit... and by dynamic I mean interesting to watch, streaky, potential to grow and get better, but ultimately losing us games which is KEY.

    Makes sense.  Have a fun to watch, high scoring team.  Loose 120 to 100 but make the highlight reels.  I guess we really don't need to concern ourselves with defense.

    Crawford dribbles, too much and too often looks to shoot first and ignore open man. He does not belong in the rotation of a team rebuilding unless is bein utilized to insure more losses.

    Agree with Marshon Brooks, the kid can fill up the basket, Kris Joseph on the other hand won't leave the bench assuming he even makes the team...

    Exactly ... Danny only wants the three #1 draft picks and Brooks & Joseph. He knows he can flip Wallace and Humphries and he rectifies two earlier mistakes .... trading Brooks for JJJ and having to cut Joseph too early. And unless they can trade Bogans for a pick I think they waive him ... needed only to make the trade numbers work otherwise he wouldn't be part of the deal.

     

     

    Rondo - Bradley - Pressey

    Lee - Brooks - Crawford

    Green - Joseph - ???

    Sully - Bass - Oly

    Asik - Randolph - Iverson/Melo

     

    James Southerland ???

    How bout a shooting forward who passed on San Antonio's offer to pick him in 2nd round if he'd play in Europe for a year? Still looking for an NBA contract in Vegas now with GS after a lackluster performance in Orlando with Philly.

     

    http://www.nunesmagician.com/syracuse-basketball/2013/6/28/4474816/james-southerland-san-antonio-spurs-nba-draft-2013



    Southerland's offensive game begins (and for the most part ends) with his jump shot, specifically from the three-point range. 6.2 of his 10.5 field-goal attempts per game came from behind the arc his senior season, where he shot 39.8% for the season.

    Southerland sports a very quick and compact shooting motion, having little trouble getting off high-quality shot attempts in most situations. The majority of his looks are of the spot-up, feet-set variety, but he also sees a good deal of work catching-and-shooting on the move coming off screens as well. Southerland does an excellent job moving without the ball constantly in Syracuse's offense, and also does a solid job maintaining his balance when shooting on the move, doing a good job of setting his feet and squaring to the basket regardless of the direction he's going.

    While Southerland is predominantly a three-point shooting specialist, he also shows flashes of a mid-range game, being comfortable spotting up or coming off screens for spot-up jumpers from really anywhere on the floor, from free-throw line extended to even the mid post. While this probably isn't something that could develop into a staple for him, it does give him some versatility and provides offenses with a safety valve option late in the shot clock.

    Is Danny still working on that? Faverani also had interest by San Antonio as well, right?

     

    I thought it was dead but haven't been paying much attention to that.

    he said he'll know more monday....

     

     

    New big in mix?

    The Celtics remain interested in center Vitor Faverani, who currently is under contract to Valencia of the Spanish League. As of yesterday, the team still was debating a buyout of the 6-foot-11 Brazilian’s contract, a process that never is simple or predictable.

    The Celtics hope to know more by Monday. . . .

    "The Indestructible Man"  or in the States,   "Ironman!"

     

    http://www.projectspurs.com/2013-articles/july/spurs-worked-out-brazilian-center-vitor-faverani.html

     

    According to our good friends over at Spurs Brazil, Faverani's current team, Valencia (former team of Tiago Splitter and Nando De Colo), let him travel to San Antonio simply for workout sessions. It is highly unlikely the big man from Brazil makes the squad.

    Vitor is a 259 lbs., 6'11" center. With Valencia in the Spanish league, he averaged 9.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, and shot 59% from the field in 23 games.

    The 25-year old Faverini (6-11, 260 lbs) has been playing in Spain. He comes with a super cool nickname, “El Hombre Indestructible.”

    +1  Crawford can't bring as much as Brooks, if MarShon gets the playing time.

    Yeah you may be right. I could say the same about Brooks though. I hope they keep both, at least until the trade deadline because that'll be a really interesting point of debate. They can compete with each other. Both are scorers and I think both have NBA futures. Both are on similar rookie deals. Again, I hope we get to see them compete. I just dont know how when we still have Courtney Lee who is a better overall SG right now.

    Lee is better suited playing for a playoff team.

    Ainge will have an easier time moving Lee than Wallace.

    So you are telling us that Lee will be traded first by Danny .... and you're will ing to leave this board if you're wrong????????????????????
