The Boston Celtics are in for a big summer and will be making a number of changes to their roster. Here are players who could bring back the most value in a trade this offseason.
Green is too inconsistent to be a true offensive threat, but he could be valuable on a team that already has their corp in tact. Green would be a great addition for teams like the Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards. He has about two years left on his deal and would be an excellent fourth option or sixth man on a good team.
Bass is a terrific role player who adds a ton of value to a contending team. He could very well be the missing piece to a championship run. Plus, his expiring contract makes him a low-risk option for a good team. He has a nice mid-range shot, plays defense and is powerful down low. The Golden State Warriors, Thunder and Rockets would benefit with a guy like Bass on their roster.
Sullinger is a promising, up-and-coming player who could bring back solid assets to Boston. He's under team control until 2015-16 and has the ceiling of an All-Star. Sully could be the final piece in a package for a perennial player in the league.
Rondo is the most talented player on the Celtics' roster right now. He could definitely bring back the most value for Boston. A team with championship aspirations would love to have Rondo running the show. Plus, he has plenty of playoff experience and has enjoyed much success. The Celtics would trade Rondo if they decide to extend their rebuilding phase.
If the Celtics don't want to keep rebuilding, they could surround Rondo with other good players instead. In order to get another premier player, the Celtics will have to trade their 2014 lottery pick. They have a great chance at landing a top-five pick and with all the talent in this year's draft, it is by far their most valuable asset this offseason. Kevin Love, anyone?
