[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Rondo, Green, and two number ones : I agree. I can't believe we are offering the two draft picks as well as Rondo and Green.

Well, I don't buy that the Celts are offering two draft picks as well. That is just being circulated to drive up the price. Here is how you have to look at it:
1) CP3 is done with the Hornets and they know it. So, they have to get the best deal for him.
2) Other than the Knicks, CP3 is not ready to sign an extension with others. So all other teams have to evaluate whether they will take this chance. Or, they have to figure out what will be needed to get Paul to sign with them.
3) In the above scenario, you are hearing the speculation that the Warriors need to get Chandler, etc. Also, if CP3 is ready to sign an extension, I can understand that Danny has to throw in the draft picks as the competetion gets much bigger.
3) If Paul is not ready to sign an extension, then there are very few teams that are interested: Celtics, Mavs and Rockets. Of these, the Celts are in the best position to offer value. In this scenario, the Celts don't need to offer draft picks.
At this time I see a very strong possibility that the Hornets and the Celts will be involved in a trade. They may get a third team involved to make it better for everybody.
