    Maybe we should have kept Shavlik Randolph

     



    Yes, if the Celts were truly aiming to win as many games as they can.

     

    But it's very obvious Ainge has Andrew Wiggins on his mind.

    [/QUOTE]

    here we go again!!

     

    REALLY?

     

    Randolph would win us more games?

     

    that's WORST than those who say Fav will be a starting NBA center next year!

     

    at least THEY don't have SIX YEARS of NBA SCRUB history that Randolph already has under his belt....LOL.

     

    those that have love for FAV  can HOPE he is a player, though I personally think Randolph and Fav are about the same level...if I had to guess.

     

    Randolph hasn't won ONE game for anyone in his NBA career (which wasn't much of one).

     

    can we PLEASE quit living in make -beleive land , where a SCRUB puts on our favorite teams jersey and becomes a STAR?

     

    it NEVER HAPPENS, boys and girls.

     

    Randolph would have helped us win more games...LMAO!!!

     

    come on, man!!!

    How many true centers are there out there? Very few.  I think that the rookie coach will go with Humphries, asking him to focus on rebounds.  KO may also see time at the PF and C spot. 

    The coach probably does not even know who his starting five is.  Tanking mode.

    Randolph said if he didn't sign with another NBA team or Euro-league team he would open to resigning with the C's.

    I thought Randolph got a raw deal last season... He played well enough for some minutes considering who played in front of him...

    Over 16 regular-season appearances, Randolph averaged 4.2 points and 4.4 rebounds over 12.4 minutes. He grabbed 26.3 percent of all available defensive rebounds during his time on the floor and 22.4 percent of all caroms overall, which were the best numbers on the team, albeit in a small sample size of 198 minutes.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/why-boston-celtics-retain-shavlik-randolph-151400463.html

    If Randolph played enough games to qualify for statistical leads, his 20.9 rebound rate and 17.2 offensive rebound rate would have cracked the top 10 in the NBA. Think about that, folks: this guy grabs over 20 percent of all missed shots while he's on the floor, and 17 percent of all possible rebounds on the offensive end. Fans almost came to expect second-chance opportunities from the big man.

    Compare that to Fab Melo's 4.9 rebound rate, including 9.6 defensively and 0.0 offensively, and it seems like a no-brainer to keep Shav. Sure, Melo's 36 total minutes in 2012-13 is a limited body of NBA work, but the Brazilian even struggled to grab boards in the Orlando Summer League a few weeks ago. At some point, Ainge must pull the plug on the Fab "project" and let someone else patiently wait for his "development."

    It would be silly to let Randolph slip away for a little over one million bucks. A rebuilding year would be the perfect time to equate a player with his basketball IQ and overall potential with rookie coach Brad Stevens' offensive scheme.

     Many forget that Shav led the Chinese Basketball Association in scoring last season before joining Boston. He has an underrated skill set with the ball in his hands--just ask his former CBA head coach.

    "If he is asked to start doing more offensively, he is really going to surprise some people with what he can do," said Norm deSilva, his Foshan Dralions coach last season, in a personal interview in March. "If he gets a chance to start a few games or play significant minutes, people are going to be very surprised at how well he shoots the ball from the outside, and his ability to spot up on the perimeter. He can really stretch the floor and present matchup problems for other big guys who have to come out and guard him."

    DeSilva also pointed out Randolph's unusual combination of characteristics: large frame, strong motor and instinctive presence.

    "Guys like Shav are so hard to find," deSilva told me. "He is very skilled and mobile for his size. He has a knack for finding a way to rebound against more athletic players, and is very difficult to guard when he faces up in the low post."

    .... Crawford never really panned out with the CelticsSources suggest that Ainge would "love" to trade him, but it's been a little difficult to find suitors.

    Boston should be able to find somebody by the end of the summer. Melo and Crawford both possess affordable expiring contracts. Even if Ainge can get second-round picks or cash for them, he should bite the bullet and make it happen.

    I think Pekovic is the most under-rated C in the NBA and would love to get him.

    I just don't know why the TWolves would let him go.  They don't even have a suitable backup Center.  Pek and Love would be a solid long term frontcourt foundation for years.  and they have no need to dump Rubio.  Rondo would only be an incremental upgrade, but they need outside shooters.

    I don't see this happening. and certainly not Pek, Rubio and first round picks for Rondo, Wallace's bad contract and a D leaguer. More like Pek and Rubio for Rondo, Wallace, Brooks or Crawford and a draft pick.

    I think Pek may want to become a Free Agent next year otherwise he would have signed by now unless he's expecting some team to make a monster RFA offer that Minny wouldn't match though they might match anyhow.

    If Pek holds out to become a FA next season then I think Danny could try to work out a S&T for Pek using our TPE, cash and a draft pick. The TPE can't be combined with other players but cash and a draft pick or more combined with the TPE is acceptable and could interest Minny if it becomes apparent that Pek wants out.

    I doubt the Celtics think Shav is better than Fav.  Shav has'nt stuck with any team . Why would we sign a lesser player to contract ?  That makes no sense at all.

    yes, the NFL season is just around the corner and Pekovic remains unsigned in Minny!

     

    Jerry Zgoda @JerryZgoda

    Flip remains confidnet Pek deal will get down. Asked for a deadline, he said, "Training camp."

    11:42 AM - 12 Aug 2013 

    Training camp generally begins around the first week of October. That gives Wolves’ management a month and a half to get a deal done.

    Pekovic is a restricted free agent, so there is always the possibility that if negotiations break down he could choose to just play out the season on the $6 million qualifying offer and test the market next summer.

    Yes, Pek doesn't have a new contract, yet.

     

    You believe the Celtics will end up getting Pekovic via trade?

    [/QUOTE]

    Absolutely not, you see, my post was so timely that even the parties involved finally got their crap together and agreed on a deal. Pek has agreed to sign with Minny after all. Too bad ... another one bites the dust.

    Seriously, Mployee, 3:06am you were telling us Ainge could get Pek using our TPE.

    Then on 9:20pm, same day, you're telling us that the Celts will absolutely NOT get Pek in a trade.

    Flip-flopping or lying?

    HAHAHA




    You're an idiot ....
