I think personally, a smarter idea would be to make a trade that has potential to solve long term needs for the team in addition to helping this year too. Of course, my suggestion carries with it alot more risk. The reason there are so many 'rental' deals done each year is they are low risk/low return type moves and alot easier to stomach.

Do many of them ever work out though? Whether Boston rents someone this year or not... they still face a cap crunch next year. I think with the team's core so solid... plans should be aimed at winning for the next 3-5 years and not just only this one single season.
