I think we had a shot at him if we really wanted him. It would have cost us D Wright (comparable to Green).
Dorell: 6'9", 210 lbs. 43% fg, 40% 3pt, 5.7 rebs, 3.7 assists, 16.5 points, 1.4 steals.
Green: 6' 9" 230 lbs. 43% fg, 30% 3pt, 5.6 reb, 1.8 assists, 15.2 points, .8 steals.

Both are wing men. Defense obviously wouldn't be a question for the Celtics regarding Dorell. If anything, the numbers show that Dorell is the superior player. Maybe worth Perkins and a second round draft pick? I am guessing if we tried to get Perkins, we didn't put Dorell on the table.
So I want to know everyones thoughts on this. If we acquired Perkins, we would have had the big man we have been craving for years and lost our only wingman/perimeter defender.
For a playoff push, I would like this move. D Wright brings a sweet 3 pointer and defense, but we know that this team has 3 point shooters/could sign another decent shooter if needed. Reggie could fill in the gap for scoring if he gets more minutes. Perkins obviously would fill in our biggest weakness.
I am guessing the office likes Wright’s future and price tag (understandable) more than the playoff push.
Who do you think is more replaceable?
We are going to have to make some BOLD moves this summer if we are going to get better. Is this worthy of a bold move? Everybody on ESPN's sportsnation says that OKC got the good side of the deal.
