According to someone on LG Nash's 2014/2015 is only partially guaranteed...its $9 mil if we choose to keep him, $3 mil if we choose to let him go

The Clippers will be in a much, much better position to pick both of them up. They will be under the luxury tax threshold, even after re-signing CP3, and they also know that adding Pierce and Garnett shows they are looking for a strong push at a title, and it possibly keeps CP3 around.

Boston could trade Pierce for a package including Caron Butler (who will have an expiring $8 million next summer), and let KG walk. The Clippers would fill that SF spot, play KG as the starting center and/or backup PF, and go from there.

In a trade with the Celtics, can the Clippers take in more salary than they are sending out? For example Butler+1st round picks for Pierce/Garnett.

 

Because if the answer is no, then what can the Clippers put together that would be attractive to Boston's rebuilding plans? It doesn't sound smart to give away an expiring $15 million to get an expiring $8 million back.

As I understand it, the Celtics have the ability to waive Pierce up to June 30 and pay him only $5m.  So if they choose to go full tilt toward a rebuild which I sort of expect them to, then they will approach him about a "restructured" 13/14 deal.  If he refuses to take it, they can then shop him hard before the June 30 deadline and if they get nowhere, buy him out. I would think they can at least get a first round pick for him.

 

Even if he gets bought out, I cant see him in a Lakers jersey.  It would look too weird and I dont think he could do it either.  But then, I thought the same about Nash.

 

KG, I just dont know.  Heart of a lion, but the body is well, well, well past its prime.  It would have to be a very cheap deal, with the epxectations on both sides being that he is pretty much just going to play from March on.

They could go DeAndre + Butler and picks for Pierce + Terry. Butler expires, they get a starting center and draft picks, and get rid of Jason Terry's $10.7 mill/2 years and won't have to pay luxury tax on Pierce's contract.

Garnett...different story. I was under the impression that he was expiring, not sure why. I forgot he was going to get paid for another two years.

Just running some numbers...

 

Wouldn't the Celtics still pay luxury tax? They're only shedding $1.6 million in your scenario. And in the long run, they're getting back more in salaries than if they just held onto both Pierce and Terry.

 

Pierce $15.3 + 0 = $15.3

Terry $5.2 + $5.4 = $10.6

 

Jordan $10.9 + $11.4 = $22.3

Butler $8 + 0 = $8

 

Jordan will give them a starting center, but for a limited time. He'll want a pay day in summer 2015. I think the attraction has to be the draft picks, which could be make or break considering they'll most likely be in the high 20s.

Maybe 5+ years ago but not now so much.  I really respect him, and I think he will walk away if he cannot play at a consistently high level.  If last year is any indication of what he is capable of, then his offseason decision is pretty easy.  And I cant believe he would be willing to play for Coach Moron anyway.

The only way I want him near this team is if he spills the beans about Carmelo's girl and her "Honey Nut Cheerios".

Yeah, they will, especially because they have to fill out the roster...but the point is, they would rather pay luxury tax for a player like DeAndre Jordan (who they would want to keep) and have draft picks in place, than to just pay it because of Pierce's $15-16 million, with nothing to look forward to in the future.

Lets say Pierce is bought out using his 5 million dollar buy-out clause. He is angry at Danny Ainge and decides to sign with the Lakers for the MLE (LA Native). Then Garnet decides he doesn't want to retire nor does he want to play on a team that has no Paul Pierce. He requests a trade, Pau for KG, or a three way where KG goes to LA. Definitely a championship caliber team despite a 1% chance it happens.

^ they could always let Pierce go and keep Garnett.


I think the Celtics are gonna make a run at Josh Smith actually.

Letting Pierce go, and signing Smith I can see them doing.

They may do a sign and Trade actually to do that since the Hawks are looking for one.

^ Who will they trade for Smith? You think Atlanta wants Brandon Bass, Jason Terry, or Courtney Lee? Celtics have nobody of value really.
