I don't want PP to go, but I think he will ask out for the reasons you cited and the Cs will accommodate him. I don't expect much of a return.I like PP, and imagine there are teams where he'd play a more consistent role, but defensively he really is a tough fit for Cs who like to switch and value length more than most. On a different team he's maybe a 20ish minute a game guy, and in the playoff rotation. On a bad team he might even be more minutes/production wise (but, more of a good stats/bad team type just becuase of his limtations). I just don't think the Celts are going to trust him and thus, they should try to get value for him while they can. Bums me out a bit as I see talent there, but I also acknowledge some real limitations---he's neither defensively versatile nor all that good a distributor.
I guess the most optimistic view would be "why can't he be a better-shooting Gabe Vincent" and my answer unfortunately is "two inches and some weight make a big difference"
