Default Report: Cavs offer Celtics 2 second round picks for Pierce.

Report: Cavaliers offer Celtics two second round picks for Pierce | ProBasketballTalk

Man, so far the off season has been dominated by Celtic trade talks.

If Pierce goes to the Cavs along with Kyrie and the first pick....I think they're definitely in the playoffs.

Weak rumor, not gonna happen. I expect Pierce to be traded, but nothing from this draft. And not for 2 2nd rounders.

And nothing happens before the Doc situation is all set

The truth is about done. He not leading Cavs anywhere. Just huge contract they will be paying for a past his prime player still hanging on.

Should just wait for Celts to buy him out and give up nothing for him and sign him to a much more reasonable contract. Picking up his current huge contract would be bad idea.

I thought P2 was a free agent? Or does he have few years to go?

Sometimes 2nd rounders turn out better than firsts.

Not in this terrible draft.

Pierce isn't done either. Check out his stars this year. Especially after Rondo went down

No, not really. This draft is honestly terrible. Year 2000 terrible.

Read any of Chad Fords projections.

Take a look at the last few drafts picks 31 and 33 the Cavs picks, tell me if any of those packages are worth Paul Pierce.

People need to realize the trade isn't about JUST Pierce for two 2nds. It's about the Celtics clearing out a big salary. That's the main part of the deal, and that's why the Cavs only offered two 2nds for him. $15 million is a lot of money to clear off for a team like Boston who's seriously considering a rebuild.

And I hope it doesn't happen. Cavs need to focus on their rebuild and nothing else.

Celtics dont need to clear salary, if they dump KG and all that stuff, they are gonna be at the cap anyways.

Even if they move Pierce, what are they going to spend his money on?

They need to get value, not cap space. If they are rebuilding this year, value is more important than cap space in a bad year

The Celtics either get 2 2nd rounders or pay 5 mil to buy him out.

The Cavs dump their 2 2nd rounders that the have no interest in using. Their going to trade those picks but I would have guessed they'll go to Dallas. The Cavs have a ton of cap room and no big name FA is coming. So they either trade for a declining superstar rental or use that cap space to trade for bad contracts and picks like the Grizzlies trade earlier this year.

Paul Pierce is either going to get a guaranteed $15 mil from the Cavs on a 1 year rental or get $5 mil from the buyout and be able to go to a team like the Clippers as a FA. So its money or a chance for a ring, except he has no call on what the Celtics do.

The Bucks apparently have had talks with the Celtics about Pierce. I am sure we would xo something stupid like trade Henson or our #15 pick for him

0% chance the Celtics buy Pierce out, they would not just get rid of an asset like that especially one of the greatest Celtics ever just to save a few million which they wont use.
