Countdown to the trade deadline - YOUR view on a Andrew Bogut trade

 "Some report elsewhere whatever is told them; the measure of fiction always increases, and each fresh narrator adds something to what he has heard." - Ovid

We interrupt your regularly scheduled reading with...your thoughts about a rumored (but as of now, baseless) Andrew-Bogut-to-the-Celtics trade; on Friday, the NBA media sphere got a little worked up by reported "interest" of the Celtics in former Golden State Warriors (and current Dallas Maverick) Andrew Bogut. While far from an ideal fit, his rebounding would be a welcome addition to the Celts' second unit, and one-year contract ideal for Boston's summer free agency aspirations.

Whether or not this rumor has any legs is still unknown, though it is not unreasonable to assume where there is smoke, there's fire. We decided to poll you, the reader, for YOUR thoughts on the prospect of trading for Andrew Bogut, and while less enthused about adding him to the roster than the Philadelphia 76ers' Nerlens Noel, you are definitely interested - with an asterisk - in having him in green.

The ayes have it - depending on the offer:

Most of you only wanted a salary match (which probably ain't enough):

Some of you bid high:

And some of you bid low:

Some of you had a more balanced view:

Some of you had doubts:

Some of you want nothing to do with him:

And some of you have other ideas:

Some of you had jokes:

And some of you just want it to be March already:

It seems like the consensus here is that Bogut would be a good addition, but not for much more than (at most) Amir and bad picks, and more likely deep rotation guys and mediocre, non-Nets picks. I think you all have it right, and that while Bogut is by no means the savior this team needs to contend, if used right, could be the boost to the second unit this squad needs to give the Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers fits come spring. If Boston is careful with its offer and tempers expectations, this could be yet another sneaky win for Danny Ainge - especially if we can pry another asset like Seth Curry free in the process. We might know what direction the front office is going as soon as next Wednesday, when summer free agent trade restrictions begin to expire.
