Makes sense. I think this is not so much about Hudson as it is about Daniels, TA, and even the likes of Ray proving they can bring the ball up and play point behind Rondo. More importantly, it creates a roster spot, which gives us the flexibility to add a player. Hudson may make a decent back-up on some team, somewhere, but he has no place on a championship contender. This is good, IMO - Danny has been good at adding players the past couple of years, and hopefully can do the same this year.
Agree that DA might be looking for a trade. I wonder now if the Scal+TA package would have some appeal to teams, as TA has picked it up, and shown himself to be a fairly good rotation player (unless he suddenly loses it all again, which would probably surprise no one). If we could get a better wing to play with House and Marquis off the bench, we would be all the better.
But the other thing the roster spot does is open up a place for anyone who can maneuver a buy-out. As always, there may be guys in a contract year on poor teams that would sacrifice some money for a shot at a ring. I don't know who that might be this year, but we have done this the past 2 years, so I have to believe we will be looking.

What exactly were people expecting from the #58 pick? Jeesh.
Personally I think the kid has shown something in his limited minutes and wouldn't be surprised to see him either back here or catching on elsewhere. More than anything though this is simply about having the roster spot to add someone if the opportunity arises.

eja117: I am NOT used to the idea that we will be in the "cellar" for "years".

thirstyboots18: hi, eja. We may not be? I hope!

thirstyboots18: I have hope that Rondo, Sully, Zeller and Smart will turn in to a good base...and we can pick up a star through trade. Zeller has looked good in limited minutes. I am waiting for the 20 game rule to make final predictions.

thirstyboots18: Griz playing like champs tonight.

eja117: Pretty awful considering that half the Griz are virtually dying from flu

thirstyboots18: I don't know how the Celtics can defend this team. I would love for Green to be angry enough to put the team on his back...win or lose, it would sure make the game interesting.

thirstyboots18: question answered...the defense is terrific. who'da thunk?

eja117: Another tough game to watch. Everything really needs to work for this team to get a win against a decent team. You can't have for example Avery having a bad shooting night. That is tough. Need everyone healthy

thirstyboots18: Did Kelly score a point tonight? They all played scared in the fourth quarter...forgot what had kept them in the game. Sometimes I wonder if they go under group hypnosis at half time, that convinces them that the game is over after three quarters.
