Title: if nothing happens at the trade deadline...
Post by: jsingh1699 on February 09, 2013, 12:44:45 PM
sign k-mart and pietrus?

kmart has been talked about at length as to why he wouldnt hurt.

i say pietrus because assuming we play the heat or pacers or nets in the playoffs, and we have the scenario where pp and green both get in foul trouble. at least we have another guy who can eat up some minutes against lebron, paul george, joe johnson, etc.

offensively i think hes awful, but defensively hes good enough as 3rd string sf. thoughts?

Cant sign peaches hes already on the raptors, and i dont think the celtics are interested in kmart

Even with Jared Sullinger (back) out for the season, league sources told CSNNE that the Celtics do not have interest in signing free agent Kenyon Martin.

Yeah, if Danny keeps it together and is looking to make a playoff run ...

Kenyon Martin is the most valuable free agent big man available and good upgrade to Boston's current crop of big men. A 2nd above average defensive big man to help out Garnett and Boston's interior defense. He'd be a big help.

I think we make a playoff run and it ends abruptly, old guys retire and we suck again.

Seems reasonable.  What is not reasonable is that the C's would have no interest after Sully  going down, Darko leaving, KG tiring and Collins sucking.

It is even more reasonable that we not only didn't give C. Andersen a shot, but also let him sign with Miami and being an absolute steal at the moment...

oh wow didnt realize pietrus found a home. good for him.

darko might have stuck around if we actually gave him a chance when the season started.

my feeling is ainge is waiting to see who gets released and then will throw kmart into that mix before making a move on any free agents.

Honestly I don't expect anything to happen. Everyone is playing right now so it's not like we have extra pieces we can move. Could we use a big? Of Course. Could we get one without giving up a rotation player? Doubtful.

k-mart has a dominant personality and would be a risk to sign. But also he is all about winning and could just easily mesh in with the team. Also i believe last year he complained a few times bc he didn't get time on the court and we can't be dealing with that kind of drama.

i wouldn't sign him bc i don't think he will just sit there and behave.

I think worse case if Danny doesn't do anything by the trade deadline, we have to go back to the nbdl and get a pf/c and another G for insurance purposes.

That didn't stop Ainge from getting S.Marbury or Shaq to name a few dominant personalities. That said KMart would have to understand coming here he would be a bench/role player.

Maybe his experience with those players makes Ainge more wary of signing KMart.
