j-rich for gerald wallace. we get rid of the log jam, get a forocious rebounder who would be awesome in the don nelson style. also provide some toughness and defense alongside biedrins. the cats get their 2 guard to play along side felton, with morrison, may, okafor. this would be a good trade for both teams i believe!
"Losing is inevitably close to winning," Guber said. "They're inches apart. Drama. If you have drama, you've got a ticket to sell." "They're not real fans," Lacob said. "They don't have season tickets."
Uh... no. Wallace has an option to void his contract this summer, which he'll probably do. It would be a salary dump.
And the numbers don't work right now...
(btw, I think J-Rich is much better than Wallace... so they would have to add something else to the trade).
Where does everybody get that idea?. The Celts are in a perfect position salary wise... They only have a dumb contract (Scalabrine), they have expirers in a few years (Raltliff's $11 million next season, Wally's $13 million the next one...) and lots of young players that end their contracts in 2-3 years (of which only Al Jefferson is worth re-signing).
They don't have to dump salary at all... quite the opposite, they'll have lots of cap space in two years (after maybe drafting Oden or Durant) and will be able to re-sign Jefferson and sign a max contract free agent without problems.
Ainge may have taken some risks with his picks, but their salary cap is just fine.
Green will have to signed by 2009... and he should have proven his worth by that time. As of now, he has proved nothing other than "potential".
Jefferson is the tricky one. He still has two more years in his contract... so, with a couple of big seasons, he may be asking 8 to 10 million per season. That's high... but maybe worthy.
West and Gomes will be cheap to sign. None of them should be starting for an NBA team, although both can fill a role from the bench.
Allen (due to his character issues) and Telfair (due to his... well, "suckiness") will allowed to leave (if not traded).
Perkins is already signed til 2011 (to a great contract that never pays him over $4.5 million).
They may have to re-sign Rajon Rondo in four years... but only if he learns to shoot.
I don't foresee any problem with their cap, really.
