Pierce will most likely not get another contract from us. We currently have an anemic offense. We clearly are not winning a ttile this year, without a true center. We mine as well cash in on him while we can. From a production standpoint, they are bascially the same player now but I think we can get more out of Gay. We need to continue to build for the future. Dont give me that Jeff Green is Pierce's replacement, no one will eat that contract and my grandmother would grab a rebound over him. Don't give me were eventually get free agents, no superstar is walking through the door if not traded. Don't give me that loyalty crap either, this is a business and unless we make a move now we are screwed for the future.
Then theres the rondo effect. I'm team rondo all day but hes as mature as my 13 year old nephew. Mr I only play on nationally televised games. He's playing like crap now. The difference between the playoff rondo and this rondo is self motivation. If when pierce retires we are losing, rondo will pack it in. So lets help keep him motivated and trade for his buddy. Worst case scenario we can trade Gay's contract in the off season if it doesnt work.
