Trade idea- Lamb, PJ3, Our 1st rd pick, DAL pick, all 3 trade exceptions to Utah for Gordon Hayward. Utah will be woefully under the min. salary threshold next year and could really, really use those trade exceptions. They are also in complete rebuild mode and may value those prospects and picks more than a single good- not great- but really good SG/SF who shoots north of 40% from 3, finishes well and plays defense. A variation on this deal would have us adding Perk for Biedrins as well. Salaries match this yr (biedrins is expiring)- would help them meet min salary level next year with a big expiring contract and save us the expense of amnestying Perk in 14/15.

@Legendary_Dork @Steve H Well no, not literally afraid. I mean mugged some Dallas players last season, but I'm pretty sure they don't know where I live.

@[corporate shill] @OBoy @Steve H you guys are proving my position. If we have to rely on them being hurt=not good. We need a real center and a real coach, or we are not going to win a title.
Screw Miami- I am officially afraid of G-State. Starting line up of Curry, Thompson, Iguodala, Lee and Bogut? Throw in a seriously good coach- a little pee just came out.
Thunder send Perk (8.5 mill this yr/9.1 nxt yr), our 2014 1st rounder and the DAL future pick to PHX for Gortat and Shannon Brown's expiring contracts totaling 11.2 mill. Neither of those guys will be on their team next year anyway, and by taking the extra 2.7 mill in salary this year, we help defray the cost of eating the last year of Perk's deal. Perk can mentor Len on the art of interior defense, and really help out in their drive to tank for a top 14' pick. We get an honest to God 2 way center NOW that we should be able to re-sign for around 8mill per, as well as a quality 3rd string PG in Brown.

Perk +32nd pick+DAL future pick to BOS for KG. Package 29th+ 12th picks to move up to 10 and snag Adams. Russ, Reggie, Thabo and Lamb can platoon our guard spots just fine, w/ Liggons on board for insurance. Make it happen Sam!

I think the real question is whether Presti thinks that Rivers is a better coach than Brooks. If Presti can make a move to improve the team that doesn't break the bank or jeopardize our future- he should do it.

Here's a crazy idea- What if we offered the Celtics a variation on the deal the Clips turned down? Doc Rivers and Garnett (we would make him our starting center) for Brooks (good rebuilding coach- he would have to agree, but the BOS job is better than he could expect to get at the moment) for Perk (cheaper than Jordan), Lamb, our first rounder and the DAL future pick?
My hope is that he plans on trading picks/Lamb for an established player.

For a team with 2 1/2 first rd picks(yes, 32nd counts as 1/2), we sure aren't working out a lot of guys. Presti tipping his hand?
Entirely agree- we ARE on the clock with those guys, and need to make moves to improve our title chances or risk losing them down the road. I am particularly worried about losing Russ to his hometown, deep pocket Lakers if he doesn't have a title or two under his belt in the coming years.

If we were able to swing a trade w/ PHX with Perk, Lamb and some picks to induce them to swallow Perk's contract, we would need Brown's contract to be included as well to make the salaries even out.

If we draft a center at 12 my preference is Smith- even better would moving picks and Perk+ Lamb for an established center. Presti has a ton of options- can't wait to see what he does.
6 months ago on Tuesday Bolts – 6.4.13
When you put it like that- I'm OK with Perk continuing to start.
While I would prefer to see Zeller starting to another year of Perk, we'll see monkeys fly out of my butt before Brooks starts a rookie center in favor of Perkins.
Thanks- I know it's a pipe dream, but its my pipe dream.

BOS is in DESPERATE need of a center- that's why they had KD playing out of position a 5 all year. Nor can they afford the price of a decent FA center b/c they are going to be nominal tax payers this yr. Bass is their 3rd string PF behind KG and Green if they have a starting 5- small price to pay in trade. They may be the only team in the league to value Perk's play based on their history with him.
No man- Horford would be our new starting center- and that would truely be a beautiful thing.
Looking to trade up in draft to acquire Steve Adams. Atlanta would love to land CP3 and Dwight, but offering max contracts for both will leave little $ leftover to fill out roster that only has 3 guaranteed contracts for nxt yr. Also, Horford's presence could be liability in landing Dwight - Horford could play at PF, but he is a paint/post player, and sharing the paint worked poorly w/Pau this year. 3 TEAM DEAL! BOS swaps the 16th pick for 12th to get Smith, and trades Bass for Perk (salary just 1.7 mill more than Bass)- We send Bass (played well w/Dwight in ORL), Lamb, 16th, 29th and DAL future pick to ATL for Horford (3yrs at 12 mill per left on contract). BOS gets the old gang back together plus a nice prospect center. ATL can now offer max $ for Paul & Howard, populate the rest of roster w/ young talent on rookie contracts w/ enough left over to likely retain J. Smith- We get to upgrade from Perk to Horford w/o trading any of our rotation players.
According to J. McMullen, KG will be back w/ Celts nxt yr. BOS is still desperate for a center, but tax issues will make it hard to find affordable FA at 5 spot. They are also said to be l
