[QUOTE]In Response to Re: The List: Free Agent frontcourt upgrades : If you add Jeff Green and Bradley to Bass and you develop Moore, JJJ, and two new rookies
, I think we only need one good Center. Problem is they are hard to find. But, I like your thinking Petey - Ryan Anderson would be wonderfulto add. If you get KG back (and I don't think Ray's wheels are shot - after surgery, he'd be great at a low enough price), that's adeep and very talented team. Of course, if Danny can trade a combination of the draft picks and any of these players to get a big who rebounds, runs, and plays D - then do it! Otherwise, Wilcox, Green, Bradley, and someone like Anderson to run with Rondo and Pierce/KG to provide the stability and experience makes for a great team.

Celtsfan, therein lies to conundrum. I believe between these 4 players (JJJ, Moore, 2 draft picks) or by using a combination of them (trade of players, picks or players & picks), we need ONE if not TWO consistent contributors. Will Doc and does Doc have the patience to truly develop them is the question? To me, if Doc can truly develop 2 of these guys, they would be better, more economical choices with much greater upside than sticking with Quis and Dooling.
If Doc chooses not to, he should package them with or package the draft picks to bring in ONE instant contributor. With 2 draft picks coming in, we'd honestly have too many positions taken up (4) by non-contributors while still having Quis, Dooling and an inconsistent Pietrus.
Also, we cannot go into next season with KG at C being backed up with Stiemsma and a draft pick like Melo. IMO, we should do everything we can to return KG to the PF position and have Bass back him up. We can really stick to KG's "5 minutes in/5 minutes out" plan and use a solid backup like Speights or Anderson. I would love our PFs to be KG, Bass and Anderson with JJJ still developing.
