Love for Horford is a lateral move at best for Cleveland (Horford is a slightly better defender, but Love is a much better scorer and better rebounder) for an older more expensive player, while also giving up Shumpert. I don't see the point of this for the Cavs. Especially considering they would be making the Celtics better.

Gobert is worth the “Anthony Davis package”. Gobert might be the best center in the NBA.

his defense and rebounding are great, no doubting that. let me see him develop offensively (shooting, passing) before we put him in the same sentence as AD though.

AD is probably the overall better player, but looking at young bigs locked in long term, the trade package required to get them is enormous. Gobert fits that spot. He’s one of the three best defenders in the league. He and Gordon Hayward were tied for the 5th best team in the NBA last year.

Gobert may be the most underrated player in the NBA, just because he doesn’t score a lot and isn’t flashy on offense.

Gobert would get Boston to the finals but as rk said Cavs would be better off with Love and it doesn't make sense for them.

But would love that deal for Boston because Rudy is a beast!

gobert is great, and surely hasn't even had his best seasons yet. and he would be perfect for boston. i just think they are giving up too much in this deal. jaylen brown and the lakers pick alone could end up being > gobert in a few years. also, the cavs have no place in this trade. they aren't swapping love for horford.

Agree Bmiller, his defense affects the game in my opinion more than any other players. Utah didn't have anyone else on their team who was an elite defender and they ended up being rated the 3rd best defense in the league behind the Spurs (Green and Leonard) and Warriors (Green Durant and Thompson) . He also made a fairly big jump on the offensive end and I think we'll see a similiar jump this year.

Dona, you may be right about the potential of Brown and the pick, but Gobert has a better chance of becoming a top ten player than either of the other two becoming an allstar and that's what the league is built on. You need a top 10 player to compete in he league. Trading for Gobert would be one of the few ways I think the Celtics would actually have a chance of beating the Cavs this year or even next year if Cleveland can keep it together.

But they won't get Anthony Davis for that package.

C: Gobert
PF: Morris
SF: Hayward
SG: Smart
PG: Irving
Sixth: tatum

This is a team that could beat Cleveland and could challenge Golden State.
