I'm sure the nay sayers will have objections to every one of these deals. But if you're going to rebuild, rebuild. Don't waste time rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
People will have objections to these deals for a good reason. They are all retarded. This is a thread for far fetched ideas, not blatantly moronic ones.
You want to turn Rondo/Allen/KG/Pierce/cap fodder into....
Jason Thompson, Travis Outlaw, Josh Childress, Robin Lopez, Emeka Okafor, Marco Bellinelli (or Rashard Lewis!!!), Mbah a Moute, Ilyasova, Antawn Jamison. Thats the group you want to go with? Maybe Danny should just send out an email telling GMs around the league we are willing to take everyone else's shitty long term contracts they wish they never signed. I'm sure we will have plenty of takers.
There are a couple of expiring deals in there, but even going forward into 2012-2013 and beyond..... Jason Thompson, Travis Outlaw, Josh Childress, Robin Lopez, Emeka Okafor, and Mbah a Moute as our core? Almost 40M for a bunch of role players (and in some cases not even role players). Is that a joke?
I'll take Rondo/Pierce and our draft picks/cap space. If the team is toast in a month, I'm fine trading Ray and/or KG for expiring deals and picks. Or possibly getting a good package back for Pierce if a contending team thinks they are a SF away from a title (and has some good young players to offer). But there isn't a single guy on your list who belongs anywhere near a rebuilding Celtics team.
