I have a crazy deal


NY get 1st overall pick , Jae Crowder & Quincy Pondexter

BOS get Anthony Davis & Carmelo Anthony

NOLA get Kristaps Porzingis , Avery Bradley , 2018 BKN 1st round pick , 2018 BOS own 1st & LAC 1st 2019

BOS sign JJ Reddick

Pg Thomas/Rozier
Sg Reddick/Smart
Sf Anthony/Brown
Pf Davis/Olynyk
Ce Horford/Zeller

22 May 2017 13:12:48
boston: J Butler

Chicago: E Bledsoe+ 1rnd pick 4+ 1rnd pick 2018 Miami+ 1rnd pick Miami 2021+ swap rights 2018

Phoenix: 1st pick Nets (Draft Ball)+ T Zeller

C: Chriss
SG: Booker
PG: Ball

22 May 2017 14:22:43
Celtics have enough future assets to get this done without PHX included. besides that, Suns giving up way too much.

22 May 2017 14:50:22
The Celtics are NOT trading the #1 pick for Butler.

22 May 2017 18:14:10
Nobody realize that Bledose is another knee injury away from being D. Rose.

22 May 2017 12:13:23

Celtics get Jimmy Butler

Bulls get #1 pick and 2019 top 10 protected 1st (via BOS), Jahlil Okafor, Justin Anderson, #39 pick and a future 2nd (via PHI)

76ers get Avery Bradley and Tyler Zeller.

22 May 2017 14:51:37
That is ridiculous. Same answer as above.

22 May 2017 18:21:37
Celtics need another interior superstar scorer to go and unless the Pelicans are giving 1 up there is not 1 worth 1st overall pick.

22 May 2017 02:47:47
Orlando: 2017 1st (1) and Avery Bradley

Celtics: 2017 1st (6), 2018 1st (Lottery protected, unprotected 2019) Mario Hezonja, and Nikola Vucevic

Celtics get the rim protector they desperately need, a young wing in need of a scenery change, and still get a high pick

Orlando gets a good guard and select Lonzo Ball or Markelle Fultz to be a cornerstone of the franchise.

Horford/Isaac (6th)

Payton/Fultz(or Ball)

22 May 2017 11:54:08
This trade is not going to happen. Vucevic is a decent player and the Celtics might do Bradley and a non-Nets No. 1 next year for Vucevic and Orlando's No. 1 this year. But this year's overall No. 1 leaves town only if a big gun comes to Boston -- George, Butler, etc.

22 May 2017 16:47:31
I love the idea of trading for Vucevic, but moving from the 1 to the 6 is WAY too much for him. Bradley would fit them well, and is pretty solid compensation all by himself. He's an expiring though, so Boston could throw in a non Nets 2018 1st rounder to make it more even. Vucevic would fit well in Boston, as he's a really solid rebounder at half the price of a guy like Drummond.

21 May 2017 19:42:16
Clippers:1st pick (L Ball)+ T Zeller+Kanter

OKC:IT+ Griffin

Boston: D Jordan+Westbrook

21 May 2017 20:32:33
Westbrook isn't going anywhere now, unless money is not important to him.

IT rumors should be dead now until February.

21 May 2017 23:40:38
If the Clippers core breaks up, I could see the Deandre for the 1st overall and Zeller, but if they are going to start a rebuild, I think they would rather see Griffin walk than have to take on Kanter's contract.

22 May 2017 00:45:16
I wouldn't mind Jordan going the C's but unless he would resign I don't see them giving up the 1st for a rental of 1 yr.

22 May 2017 17:00:36
I love the thought of Jordan coming to Boston, but not at the expense of the 1st. I think I would throw the 2018 Nets pick out there though, or find a team with a high pick looking for a package including Bradley and Crowder to bring in as a third partner.

Westbrook is an amazing player, but I just don't think I like his game working with Stevens and Ainge. His skill set would fit anywhere, but all I can see is discord with the staff and front office. Too many strong willed people in that scenario, and Stevens is one of the few coaches who actually comes out ahead in that situation at this point.

21 May 2017 18:59:17
What is happening to the Celtics by the Cavs will definitely change what Boston does this off season

No matter who they threw at LeBron just didn't work so they need someone bigger and more stronger and as much as I don't want to say this... Melo might be that guy..

Boston trades Crowder, 2018 Boston pick, 2017 2-second rd. picks and Jonas Jerebko (S&T)

Knicks trade Melo and W Hernangomez

This allows Boston to either draft #1 or trade down this year or trade this years pick for someone useful..

21 May 2017 20:37:23
I'm far from a Melo hater, but. CARMELO ANTHONY is a Lebron stopper?!?

21 May 2017 21:06:57
Is Melo better than Crowder?
And I didn't say Melo is that guy. "might" is the key word there!

21 May 2017 21:32:59
The only thing that Anthony stops is ball movement. CA can't stop James when he jogs back down the court when he doesn't get the ball on offense.
That doesn't even start to address the question of why the Celtics would waste that kind of money on a declining ISO player and not have the cash left to get the rim defender they need.
If Ainge hits his head on the pavement and decides he wants Anthony, the 2018 first-rounder would probably get it done.

21 May 2017 22:21:36
If I'm Boston I wouldn't even give up Melo for Crowder straight up (in large part due to the 20+ mill salary difference which could basically be Hayward) . Melo is a below average defender and not half the athlete Lebron is. Nobody in the league can really defend Lebron by themselves it takes an entire team (force him to shoot from the outside and get no easy buckets inside) .

21 May 2017 23:48:54
Yea I'd rather have Crowder and his contract over Melo.

21 May 2017 23:58:49
I agree jaws, nobody can defend LBJ. Maybe they shouldn't sign a max FA. Maybe they should trade down and try to get a big man in the process (Orlando)? Let the next year play out and start then. After all, they did get to where they're at with this group of players. Just need a good C.

But I do wish that some people on here would explain or give their own proposals instead of just disagreeing just for the hell it, And you people know who you are. My grandkids do a better job of explaining.

22 May 2017 01:01:56

What signings or trades will get the C's closer to the finals next year?

22 May 2017 18:27:05
I seen Melo play Lebron better than any Celtics. not in transit but definitely in 1/ 2 court.

20 May 2017 15:52:55
3 Team Deal:

Sixers Trade: Pick 3, Okafor, Pick 39, 50, 2018 LA unprotected 1st round pick

Sixers Get: Pick 1

Celtics Trade: Pick 1, Jaylen Brown, Avery Bradley

Celtics Get: Jimmy Butler, Pick 39(sixers)

Bulls Trade: Jimmy Butler

Bulls Get: Pick 3, Jaylen Brown, Avery Bradley, LA 2018 pick, Pick 50 (sixers)

-Bulls re-bulid, that simple, it needs to happen
- Celtics really don't need a young Fultz, they'd be better off with an established star in Butler. Sign Hayward in FA
-Sixers give up some future, but they need to start making moves, and Fultz is their guy, Sign Lowry

Celtics Starters:
SG: Jimmy Butler
SF: Hayward
PF: Horford
C: Olynyk

Sixers Starters:
PG: Fultz
SG: Lowry
SF: Simmons
PF: Saric
C: Embiid

20 May 2017 16:13:37
Take out lowry and replace him with reddick and its solid. Just because lowry is from philly doesn't make him a fit. with the addition of fultz and simmons already in place there's no need for lowry and the massive contract he'll demand.

20 May 2017 16:29:54
I think that's too high of a price to move from 3 to 1 in a draft that is talented, but a definite drop off after pick 3. More then a few experts feel J. Jackson may be the best talent in this draft. No eat do I include the lakers unprotwcted next year. Maybe switch it with sixers pick next year (or lesser of the two) . That laker pick could be top 3 again.

20 May 2017 06:09:24
Sooooooo, i have a theory!

Markelle fultz the consensus #1 pick in this years draft is projected to go to the celtics. Danny ainge himself has said he doesn't see a 19 year old coming and and leading a team to a championship and if they take fultz i have every reason to believe they'll trade him for an established star. Now any team trading with the celtics say the bulls or pacers would be trading for the most assets they can get to jumpstart they're rebuild. So instead of trading for that pick and say abery bradley or marcus smart/ terry rozier? Why not trade for multiple pick which i don't think the celtics would be willing to give unless they traded that number one pick for additional picks to a team with an abundance of picks liks say ehhhh the SIXERS!!! There isn't a team in the nba who that markelle would fit i'm with like the sixers. With them tanking for so long and have already believe to have their franchise cornerstones in embiid and simmons i don't think trading say this years 3rd pick the lakers 2018 pick and a protected top 5 2019 pick along with jahlil okafor would hurt their future and i don't see the celtics saying no. They can aquire the star they desire like a jimmy butler without giving up some of their core players and still have a strong possibility of adding a guy like gordon hayward though free agency. I really only see them having to give up a few picks and say jaylen brown and marcus smart for jimmy butler, add hayward in free agency and those picks/players they gave up mean nothing.

Again just a theory but i would love to see fultz on the sixers. As for the celtics i don't believe they'll be the same team next year and i don't think fultz is going to be apart of that franchise, i think its a smart move to move that pick for more picks and flip those exact picks and jaylen brown/marcus smart or terry rozier for butler. You get your young center in okafor through that philly trade. Aquire jimmy buckets, sign hayward and i think they could actually challenge the cavs.

Share your thoughts.

20 May 2017 10:34:45
Celtics very well may trade Fultz, whether or not they include 76ers in the deal depends heavily on the team involved and their preferences/ existing roster. I think its definitely a possibility especially with a lot of teams high on Jackson who likely will be there at #3. Lakers pick is a bit of a gamble with the George rumors tho and 76ers project to be much improved by 2019 so its questionable how much value there really is there.

Celtics as is don't have the cap space to sign a guy like Hayward

celtics blog

and will likely need to move a guy like Bradley to do so as well as make a few smaller moves. For this reason its highly unlikely Celtics add both Hayward and Butler (its likely an either or) especially when what they really need is an upgrade at center/ pf position with a better rebounder. I think ideal situation for Celtics would be to keep Fultz, move Bradley for a big man (has to be relatively low salary which makes it tough) to clear cap space to sign Hayward and some smaller moves to bolster their bench.

Trading for Butler however since he'd make only 17.5 mill compared to Hayward who would start at 30.6 mill would give Celtics more cap flexibility where they could add a better more established big man. I think investigating what Horford's value is wouldn't be a bad idea either (I think they should keep IT longterm) since although skilled on both ends he is on wrong side of 30, due a lot of money, a poor rebounder for his position and not the biggest body down low (Lebron is basically his size and much more athletic which is why he is killing them) .

20 May 2017 12:50:58
I see what you're saying but of the moves you suggested gets them past the cavs. Mark my words danny ainge is a greedy guy. The celtics are going to add hayward and butler. As far as the center upgrade. The can aquire robin lopez in that jimmy butler trade. Even if the can't keep guys like Bradley or crowder they're going to do what they need to do to get past the cavs. Keeping fultz does not do that.

20 May 2017 16:16:23
DA is not a greedy guy, he's a smart guy. Just because Brooklyn got the short end of the deal doesn't mean Danny was greedy, it meant that King and Prokhorov were the not so smart guys. This is a business and at the time the nets thought they had won the lottery, but in reality Boston won the lottery.

A trade of Horford would be a dumb idea, he's not the problem. That would only hinder the process in which they are on. Although it may seem like Hayward has the lead up to this point of becoming a Celtic I wouldn't look at it that way.

In what Jaws said, I mentioned that last week or the week before that trading for Butler made the most sense because of his 17.5 salary for 2 years gives them the flexibility to add another player of size that will shut down the lane. And R Lopez could be somewhat of that presence if they wanted to go that way. But Lopez is not a dominant rebounder, nor is he one for steals.

Trading picks with Orlando makes some sense as they could get the #6 pick in return and also get Vucevic, as it was known midway through the season he could be had. Use that #6pick, 18 Boston 1st pick along with Crowder to acquire Butler.

TRADE IT while his value is high. IT for Bledsoe would be my choice.

Bledsoe/ Rozier
Bledsoe/ Rozier/ Smart?

Boston - New Orleans Trade

Boston TRADES:

Isaiah Thomas or the rights to Fultz
Avery Bradley
Ante Zizic
Amir Johnson (for salary)
2018 1st Round pick


Anthony Davis

PG - Markelle Fultz or Isaiah depending on item #1 above
SG - Marcus Smart
SF - Jae Crowder
PF - Al Horford
C - Anthony Davis

19 May 2017 20:17:58
Johnson is a FA, would have to be Zeller. Which 18 pick? They'd want Crowder instead of Bradley and also Brown. And even then I don't think that's enough.

19 May 2017 20:51:28
Anthony Davis is a great talent and it would probably take that type of offer for Pelicans to consider moving him but I don't like it for the Celtics. Celtics do need a big man but I don't think they need one the caliber of Davis and would be better suited getting someone slightly worse or someone that made less money so they can maintain strength in the rest of their roster.

I'm not sure how keen Pelicans would be to move Davis before they fully give Cousins and Davis a chance to succeed. That duo could potentially break the league as there isn't any team that would matchup well against them. However, it will be tough to build around the two salary wise, that is if they are able to extend Cousins next offseason. If next season doesn't go well they could always lose Cousins to FA. Making a trade like this probably wouldn't embolden Cousins to stay through a rebuild so one could realistically view this trade as them giving up both Cousins and Davis in which case it definitely isn't worth it.

19 May 2017 22:30:45
Cousins and Davis will be NBA best duo next. Cousins reunited with Thomas, things did not work out to well the 1st time.

add Asik and Zller.

19 May 2017 16:57:13
Bulls celtics and sixers.

Sixers trade okafor, three pick, and Covington
Sixers get first pick

Celtics trade Avery Bradley and number one pick
Celtics get jimmy butler.

Bulls trade jimmy butler
Bulls get three pick, okafor, Covington and Avery Bradley.

Bulls completely rebuild

Sixers get fultz who they probably need to complete their rebuilding efforts.

Celtics finally get a star player so they have a realistic chance to go to the finals. Right now there the celtics have zero chance to beat cavs or golden state. They need to make a move if not this one.

19 May 2017 21:25:16
I would definitely prefer just getting #1 and Bradley over Okafor, Covington and #3 if I were the Bulls. 76ers would need to add their or Lakers 2018 pick for me to justify involving them in trade (can keep covington and Okafor in that scenario) . Celtics being how they are will probably draft Fultz and try and sign Hayward before trying to make a move for Butler.

19 May 2017 11:16:44
76ers-#1 pick,#2 pick and russel
lal-covington , okafor & 2 2nd rnd picks(76ers)
celtics-saric henderson , splitter & 2 2nd rnd picks(76ers)

19 May 2017 11:31:34

19 May 2017 11:41:43
Celtics counter with Zeller and a top 46 protected second-round pick for Embiid.

19 May 2017 13:13:16
I am a sixers fan. sorry for this post.

19 May 2017 21:04:14
Lakers also counter with Deng and Moz for #3 pick.

19 May 2017 05:37:04
Boston/ NY:

To BOS - Porzingis, pick #8

To NYK - Crowder, pick #1

Zinger slides over to the 5, moving Horford to the 4, and gives the C's a young stud at a position of need. Though Crowder's on a bargain deal, the $6M in savings between his and Zingers contracts opens up the final room needed to make a true max offer to Hayward.

Losing Zinger is a tough pill to swallow, but Fultz becomes the new building block. Adding Crowder gives the Knicks Melo's replacement should they be able to deal him.

19 May 2017 06:07:18
Bad for the Knicks.

19 May 2017 06:18:10
If I'm Boston I'm taking that deal and running. I'd prefer giving up Bradley than Crowder for salary reasons (Bradley in final year of contract) but Celtics could deal Bradley in another deal. Porzingis is only 21 and proven to be a star (Fultz may be a star but isn't proven) and Celtics need a big more than another guard (although Porzingis isn't a great rebounder) . Factoring in they are also getting the 8th pick where they could still add a decent guard prospect (Smith, Ntilikina or Monk) I think its a no brainer (I'd consider the deal without the #8 included at all) . Also, this deal still opens the possibility for them acquiring Hayward in FA. Him not making an all-nba team improves the chances he leaves Utah for "greener" pastures in Boston.

Don't like it for the Knicks. They should be able to get this type of return for Porzingis alone and even then I don't like the idea of trading Porzingis. They should just try to move Melo and start the rebuild, draft Smith (or Ntilikina who they seem to prefer for Triangle) and tell Porzingis to suck it up. Knicks won't be a great team anytime soon but maybe after another year in the lottery and a little down the line once the young trio develops they can attract FA (it is NY after all) and make a formidable team.

19 May 2017 15:19:30
If Boston is getting zinger the 8th pick shouldn't need to be added to this senario.

19 May 2017 16:32:08
I'll tell you what's bad for the Knicks.

PHIL JACKSON. He's stunk up the joint since his arrival.

He'll leave before his contract ends and the Knicks are more screwed up than before he got there, 12 million a year to create a more dysfunctional environment. Dolan needs to sell that storied franchise.

Porzingis would be better guided in his career in Boston, they could bring in McHale to teach him how to be great.

Boston just needs to throw in another future 1st rd. pick, Zeller and add Bradley/ Smart and get Lee back. Lee is a great 3pt shooter, consistent, dependable and durable player for 12 mil a year for the next 3 years.

19 May 2017 19:53:23
That's not a smart move for the Knicks. Porzingis is their whole value right now, and they need to get multiple assets back for him. If they're moving him it's either for a bunch of picks, or a bunch of win-now types to play with Melo. This isn't enough of either.

If I'm the Celtics I do this pretty quickly though.

19 May 2017 22:44:23
Thomas 1st for Porzinglis 8th.

18 May 2017 15:42:25

NY trades: Noah-Porzingis-O'Quinn-Kuzminkas-#8pick

BOS trades: Horford-Thomas-Mickey-2017 Minny 2nd-2018 top 5 protected C's 1st-2019 Clippers 1st-2019 detroit 2nd-2020 Miami 2nd

Boston can build a super team with all these great young players.

Knicks get two veterans and with Melo form a great big 3 that could push Cleveland for the East.

18 May 2017 17:24:18
swap 1st round picks and uniforms. even trade.

18 May 2017 17:33:22
That would be one direction the Celtics could go, and it could give them a crazy core with Porzingis, Fultz, Brown, Yabusele, Smart, Zizic, Rozier, maybe Monk or Isaac at 8, etc.

Fultz/ Rozier/ Jackson
Bradley/ Smart/ Monk
Crowder/ Brown/ Kuzminskas/ Nader
Porzingis/ Yabusele
O'Quinn/ Hernangomez/ Zizic

That's a very interesting young team, even while taking away the two top players. I don't see DA going for it though, since they're already near the summit with assets still coming in. If Porzingis was actually available, I think they'd be foolish not to look into sending NY a package that DIDN'T include IT, Horford, Brown or the #1. Send just about anything else. They have enough assets that Jackson might be willing to take bulk over individual quality.

18 May 2017 17:50:09
Celtics are not going to go into a rebuild situation with young talent. They are in a win now mode. They need to stay the course and acquire Hayward, or Butler who I'd prefer and get a big (Drummond, Whiteside) .

18 May 2017 08:36:15

76ers get Avery Bradley, Tyler Zeller, and #7 pick (via MIN)
-Draft Malik Monk
PG: Simmons, McConnell, Baylee
SG: Bradley, Monk, Luwawu
SF: Covington, Anderson
PF: Saric, (Veteran)
C: Embiid, Holmes, Zeller

Celtics get Gorgui Dieng
-Sign Gordon Hayward
-Draft Markelle Fultz
PG: Thomas, Fultz, Rozier
SG: Hayward, Smart
SF: Crowder, Brown
PF: Dieng, Yabusele, Mickey
C: Horford, (Olynyk or Johnson)

Twolves get #3 pick and Jahlil Okafor
-Trade Andrew Wiggins to Orlando for Aaron Gordon, Mario Hezonja, and #33 pick
-Draft Josh Jackson
PG: Rubio, Dunn, Jones
SG: LaVine, Hezonja
SF: Jackson, (veteran)
PF: Gordon, Bjelica
C: Towns, Okafor, Aldrich.

18 May 2017 10:27:53
That Orlando trade us soooooooooo terrible for Minnesota it's funny. Aaron Gordan is grossly overrated and Mario Hezonja has practically done nothing in the league. Wiggins is a star if Minnesota were to even think about that trade it would have to include the 6th pick. I still wouldn't do it if I'm Minnesota. Take out Wiggins and put in Lavine.

18 May 2017 14:43:36
I think Minnesota would need to give more in the three way deal. But it's close.

18 May 2017 17:49:08
Dieng is a nice player and frankly better than anyone else on Boston's front line, but seems like the Celts have bigger fish to fry -- especially if Bradley is in the deal.

18 May 2017 08:16:45
Celtic Pipe Dream
If Boston thinks it is unlikely to sign a top tier FA and they don't trade for a star.

Boston / Sac

IT, Crowder, Jackson, and Zeller for WCG and picks 5, 10 and Gay for salary purpose, ops out, let him walk.

Boston / ORL

Smart, Nader for #6

#1 Jackson
#5 Fox
#6 Ntilikina
#10 Z Collins

Boston Lineup

PG Rozier, Fox
SG Bradley, G Green, Ntilikina
SF J Brown, Jackson
PF Horfold, Mickey, Yub.
C WCS, Zizic, Z Collins

This would load Celtics up with even younger and more athletic talent that can play multiple positions they can develop while staying competitive until the Decline of CLE and GSW.

18 May 2017 09:21:02
Makes no sense all kinda awful for every team.

18 May 2017 15:06:59
This would make the celtics go from eastern finals to a non playoff team.

18 May 2017 17:38:36
Celtics aren't getting any of those returns. Smart isn't a starting caliber pg and doesn't have upside of any of top 5 pgs in this draft. He isn't close to being worth a lotto pick let alone #6 especially as an expiring contract.

Similarly Kings are rebuilding they aren't going to give up two lotto picks and a solid prospect for IT who is an expiring contract and Crowder who is good but not great. You are delusional to think they'd get that type of return on IT let alone from a team like Kings that even with him would be awful.

With the importance of a good point guard and 3pt shooting in today's league Celtics would be foolish to not select Fultz with #1 pick (if they really wanted Jackson they should at least trade down) . Tatum likely wouldn't be available at #5 so I'd take Issac there instead.

Minnesota should keep their pick and then Boston adds another non Brooklyn pick to the Pacers.

18 May 2017 14:07:52
why does ny loose position in the draft for their return. Boston Brooms are ready to come out.

18 May 2017 16:32:27
I don't know if I give that much up for George. I think he'd be the perfect player for Boston, and I like his fit there even better than Butler, but I really don't know if he'd stay. He really wants to go to LA, so I'd need some sort of extension guarantee from him to give up the #1 plus those guys.

18 May 2017 03:50:44
3 team trade between Phili-Chicago-Boston

Phili trade: Okafor, 3rd pick
Phili get: 1st pick, smart/rozier

Phili get the 1st pick so that they can draft one of the 2 elite point guards in the draft. whilst also getting a solid backup guard in Rozier or Smart. Loosing Okafor wouldn't be the biggest loss because Holmes has shown to be a good backup player.

Chi trade: Butler
Chi get: 3rd pick, Okafor

Chicago embrace a rebuild and trade butler to get a young player with promise in Okafor and the 3rd pick (likely to be Josh Jackson). the young core of Jackson, Okafor, Portis, Valentine and Payne shows a bit of promise

Bos trade: 1st pick, smart/rozier/(brown?)
Bos get: Butler

Boston use 2 of there assets and finally trade for an Allstar. Undecided how much extra they would have to give up to get the pick but this is exactly what they need.

This trade works perfect for every teams needs

Chicago would get more for Butler and Philly has no place in this deal unless they're willing to give up ton for the pick. The first overall and smart or Rozeir is far more valuable than Okafor and the 3rd. In today's NBA Okafor is a bad fit for most offenses and his defense terrible.

LAC Trades: Blake Griffin (Sign and Trade), 2020 2nd Rounder (CLE)
LAC Receives: C. Anthony, Singler

OKC Trades: Kanter, Singler, Sabonis, 2018 2nd Round PIck (CHI)
OKC Receives: Blake Griffin (Sign and Trade)

NYK Trades: C. Anthony
NYK Receives: Kanter, Sabonis, 2018 2nd Round PIck (CHI), 2020 2nd Rounder (CLE)

Reason LAC Does the Trade: They do this if Griffin says he is leaving and then they can get another star to pair with CP3 and Jordan. Also, then they don't have to get rid of Crawford or Rivers or any other pieces.
Reason OKC Does the Trade: They do this to not only get rid of Kanter's contract, but also to get a star to pair with Westbrook. They will also have to get rid of Sabonis who has a bright future, but get a star that is in his prime to pair with Westbrook.
Reason NYK Does the Trade: NYK do this to not only get rid of Anthony, but also to get in a 24 year old big that is a defensive liability, but also would be perfect for the triangle offense if the Knicks plan to keep running it. Also they get Sabonis and a few late draft picks. You may say the knicks could maybe get better returns for Anthony, but at the end of the day, Anthony still has to agree to go to the place. He might not want to go to Boston, or any other places, you don't know. There has been interest in going to LA to play with Paul though and Jordan can cover for his defense.

Tell me what you think about this trade. Also maybe you can add other small picks to the deal to make it work, but this was just thought of kinda quick.

Celtics have too many guards and NEED another big man


Det trades: Drummond

Boston trades: Bradley-Zeller-Rozier-Mickey 2018 Brooklyn (Top 5 protected turns into 2018 C's 1st and 2020 C's 1st) 2019 Clippers 1st 2017 Clippers 2nd 2019 Detroit 2nd and 2020 Miami 2nd


Detroit gets 2-3 1st round picks, a all nba defensive player who scores 17 a game, a growing prospect in Rozier and two players totalling 10 million in salary that can be cut at anytime, and 3 2nd rounders. All this together they can rebuild and continue to grow.

Boston gets their rim protecting/rebounding big they NEED as well as relieve the log jam of guards

C-Collins (12 pick)/Baynes/Boban


What do you think?

You hold the guns to their heads and I'll be lookout from my computer. Detroit Doesn't want to be in limbo for 3 years while this plays out. But hey, I'm all for it. Then trade for Butler.
