In response to kaktug's comment:
i can see wanting to dump wallace's horrible contract, though we probably can't do so without giving up rondo. but why would we want to dump an expiring deal like humpries has? won't that help us next year? i'm probably overlooking something.
Yes and no.
There's no correct answer.
IMO, Celts can keep Humphries if they get rid of Bass.
What's bad is if the Celts keep Bass and Humphries.
The Celts already have Sully and Oly. Having Bass and Humphries on the team is a waste of money.
That is very true if beforehand we have the cap room and later on acquire these redundant and mediocre players. We have what we have now, we can't just get rid of them and get cap room without getting other bad salary back, at least not without some help from teams with cap room or TPE. But that is not going to happen, who the hell wants these overpaid players to be on their payroll and fill their cap space? Barring some generous teams taking on these guys contract, I think it is yes we want to keep Humphries contract.
Totally agree, except for "yes we want to keep Humphries". Nobody wants to keep him, we will just be forced to keep him, there aren't any other options.
