There is no way he would come out and say a huge trade is probably gonna happen.
Hopefully something is in the works though, because we look awful.
With the way teams are in regards to the cap... I mean who do you really think we can get for these guys? You're watching how they have been playing. Well, so are all the GMs and owners.
I don't think Ainge is going to move Sully and AB. He could but I doubt it.
Is it 2001? Sully and/or AB for this years Rogers and Delk? That didn't work then, wouldn't work now. I think Danny knows that.
Of the others on the roster, I don't see realistic trades that really help the C's short or long term. Maybe Danny finds something by the deadline, I doubt he will.
OTOH, this group *has* gone as far as it is going to go. Even if it catches fire if won't get all the way through the playoffs to the finals, much less win them. Maybe they can eek into the playoffs and give Sully, AB and (maybe) Melo some experience this year, but I think the rebuild has started and its pace will accelerate.
Last time Danny kept Pierce and Rondo as building blocks and everyone else was an asset to be traded for KG/Allen. This time maybe it's Rondo and...
Maybe it's not even Rondo. And I don't know who the targets are...no idea. I don't expect the big deals to happen this year, though. Next summer, maybe, the summer of 2014 is more likely.
