    Waiver wire here we come...

    Anybody have ideas about which bigs will be bought out in the days ahead?  Is there anyone who can at least replicate the limited minutes that Collins was capable of providing?  Very disappointed that Danny couldn't swing a trade for a serviceable 4/5 to help in the weeks ahead, but I am sure he explored the possibilities.  Kenyon Martin?  Darko redux?

    PJ Brown was a decent pick up.

    Jermaine O'neil is likely to be bought out. Can't see bringing him back though, but he was having a solid season.

    in 17 minutes a game. I think he is far more likely to end up with the Heat. Which would be par fr the course for him to start producing with a team like the Heat.

    I can imagine that Ainge must have some plan to replace Collins. He is well aware of our interior defense problems and our rebounding issues so how could he make a move that makes that situation worse? I just hope its not Melo who he is thinking will be Collins replacement.

    Scratch Keyon Martin off any list. He is going to sign the Knicks.

    I would take Jermaine in a heartbeat although I heard the Knicks were interested.  Look, he is way better than Collins in every aspect.  He is offensively better than we saw and I think he wasnt that happy because they never gave him looks... anyway, if its doable the Cs should pull that trigger.

    Re: Waiver wire here we come...

    Summary of my feelings about Danny's job performance leading up to today:

    1.  Disappointed that we didn't land a Big that improves the team.

    2.  Surprised that we didn't at least get a backup Big or backup rebounding PF.

    3.  Flabbergasted that we actually gave up a big leaving us with only Wilcox and Garnett!

     

    4.  Let the fans down by not improving this .500ish team.  

    5.  one word sums it up = Failure.    

    and this team will not improve by getting more trash off the wire.

    He just wasn't willing to give up talent for less that what it was worth because of injuries and nobody wanted anything else on this roster.  No sense in making trades just to make trades.

    I agree this stands as a failure right now, but that can change depending upon what he does in the waiver wire and bought out players. I still can not understand what he was thinking not upgrading the center postion.

    If the Knicks are signing Martin are they going to waive Sheed? Would anyone want Sheed back. To be honest I would rather have Sheed than JON.

    It's time for Melo to play some minutes.

    6 hard fouls is all we need.



    I agree, time to give the 7 footer some minutes. I like the celts chances this year

    ...hmmm, that's why they called it "waiver" -- means wave your hand and say --->bye bye --garbage in garbage out in the revolving door.

    I can't imagine they're gonna find anybody better than what Melo can offer via waiver wire.

    I think JON could actually help, but if they got him as soon as he sets foot in Boston I guarantee he gets hurt and put on the shelf for the rest of the year.

    You act like he can waive a magic wand and presto, Bill Russel in his prime appears. No one wants to give a good rebounding big for Brandon Bass, No one wants Jeff Green's contract. And Everone wanted to give us pennies on the Dollar for KG or Pierce. And we can't trade guards because we only had three. 

     So you get what you can (crawford) and hope the ole geezers have another run in 'em. After that, you reevelate in the off season.

    Probably. Besides I think he is ring chasing. wouldn't be suprised if he ends up in Heat jersey.

    Ofcourse he could not. Last time I checked he is not a magician, but a GM. What he could of done is learned from the last few years of doing to same thing, that is looking to bigs getting bought out. Where has that got us? DA should have realized this and signed a above average big before the season began. At least, he owes it to KG and Pierce.

    no he owed it to pierce and kg to swing our pick and a guard for a servicable 4 or 5. i dont see why he couldnt have gotten hickson, mozgov, maybe dalembert or maybe gortat. portland wanted a pick hickson wanted out ... everyone is saying the draft is weak so why not get that extra piece?

    Even Blair would have been an upgrade! The Spurs were trying to give him away before the deadline!

    In response to DFURY-13's comment:

    Think about this logically. You know next year you have KG, Bass, Sullinger and Melo locked up. Why add a big to that group that is mediocre and costs you KG? Plus if Crawford shows any promise it makes Lee or Terry expendable or possibly Rondo expendable. This gives Danny so many more options than he had. If you add a Martin or another mediocre vet this season you can just not resign them at the end of the year. They also have the Bi annual exception and can use that to pay a player who wants more than the minimum.



    KG will be 37 years old next season! Father time waits for no one!
