First and foremost let me admit that I'm a Boston Celtics fan. I assure you I'm not here to 'troll' you, I'm just interested in getting some thoughts from Pistons fan on a trade idea I had.
Receive: Greg Monroe, Charlie Villanueva
Send: Rajon Rondo, Jeff Green
Receive: Brandon Jennings
Send: JR Smith, Iman Shumpert
A few things about the trade idea. My original idea was to make a deal around us sending Rajon Rondo and Jeff Green for Greg Monroe and Brandon Jennings, and I'd love to get your thoughts on the return there (before the Knicks involvement).
I included the Knicks in the deal because the Celtics would have no interest in Brandon Jennings. His contract's not terrible, but it's too much for a team like ours who is looking to rebuild. To make the math work, I needed to include the malcontent known as JR Smith. Then included Iman Shumpert b/c I realize the Pistons would probably need to be incentivized to take back Earl the third.
I know you guys love the Moose (and obviously I do too, as signaled by the amount of time I'm spending on trying to figure a way to get him on my team) but I thought if you were to move him, this would be a pretty nice return. That's a really nice starting 5, with pieces that would seem to compliment each other into a super competitive team (that'd be a lot of fun to watch).
Anyways, I've said enough. I'm super interested to see what you guys think.
