Boston Celtics: 8 Trade Scenarios Danny Ainge Must Explore

Now that the All-Star break has passed, the Boston Celtics have some decisions to make about the direction of their franchise.  Will Danny Ainge make a move(s) this season to make the Celtics a playoff contender, or will he build for the future? 

Building for the future can mean two things: stand pat and let the veteran contracts of Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen expire, or move one of these guys, Rajon Rondo or Paul Pierce, etc. for a younger, yet comparably skilled player(s).

So, the first decision for the Boston brass is to decide which direction they want to head in, and then decide which players are a part of the team’s long-term plans.

The decision won’t be an easy one for Danny Ainge, and there is a huge amount of risk involved, this season in particular, in making a deal. 

Do you risk going after Dwight Howard next season and keeping the Big Four intact?  Is Rajon Rondo worth moving for a scoring point guard?  Is Pau Gasol’s monster contract worth adding?

There is just a little over two weeks to go before a decision must be made.  Here are some scenarios that make sense for the team.
