I'm pretty happy with this deal. All we did is deal depth guys to strengthen our back court, which is now rock solid. Moore and Johnson were both 3rd on the depth chart, it's nice to see something of value come back for them. Ainge has handled this offseason to the best of his ability with the pieces available, can't say anything bad about the moves so far.

I'm wondering what they do next. Seems like they need a PF and they will have their team pretty set.

This move also opens a spot for Christmas to come to camp and possibly earn a spot on the 15 man roster.

Courtney Lee is a really nice complimentary piece to JET. Pretty similar skillsets.

Ainge did well to get Lee and Terry and draft 2 top 10 talent bigs in Sully and Melo.

I didn't want Wilcox or Bass going anywhere either.

Gonna be nice to mix in Avery middle the season and get shutdown D and energy.

Charlotte's pick would have been close to ours though its probably the biggest peice we gave up.

He has talent, but he's an end of the rotation guy/DNP here. Good trade.

Pretty decent depth signing for a C. Gotta give Danny Ainge a ton of credit, he's done a great job reloading this offseason.

Like Collins a lot. Will bring nothing offensively, but he is a much better defender than Stiemsma (not late in rotations). Less of a shot blocker though, but that is fine considering we brought in Melo and we are having Wilcox back.

Looks like we are ready for another run, it's important not to lose too much defenseively when Garnett & Pierce sit ( Garnett more so than Pierce of course )

I agree, Ainge has done a good job..

Rounded out the roster with PG Jamar Smith (of Illinois and Southern Indiana) and G Dionte Christmas (of Temple- great college player too)

Both have been quite impressive from what I have seen of them (Smith in the D-League, Christmas in college, and then both of them this summer in the odd summer league game I'd catch)

Smith can shoot and distribute reasonably well. That is all I got on him.

Christmas can penetrate, shoot, and play reasonable defense. I actually think that he will turn into a good player too. A solid 7th man type. He understands he has to play lockdown defense to get some playing time in the league, and you can tell he has committed to it. He was getting some pretty good sized offers from Europe as well. I've seen enough of him to believe he is an NBA quality player

And now Christmas is on board. That's 15 guys.

C: Garnett, Wilcox, Collins, Melo
PF: Bass, Sullinger
SF: Pierce, Green, Joseph
SG: Bradley, Lee, Smith, Christmas
PG: Rondo, Terry

A handful of those guys will also play other positions.

Great leader and locker room guy from all accounts. Also made some nice shots in the playoffs against the Heat.

Holy ****, what a log jam at the 2 guard

I wonder if all that flexibility will allow them to move Bradley back to PG. But then again, isn't Bradley playing the 2 part of the reason they let Allen go? Not quite sure what they're going to do cause right now they have Bradley, Terry, Lee and Christmas. Obviously Christmas probably won't play so they'll be going with a 3 player rotation at the 2 guard, could be packed when Bradley gets back, wonder if anyone ends up unhappy with court time.

I think this really allows Terry to be the primary ball handler on the second unit. So Dooling can be the third string 1 and 2. Depth never hurts, especially not with an older core.

What do you mean? They've brought back who they needed to and upgraded weaker depth positions.
