Clippers: M Conley+ return first round pick 2019
trade: L williams+ rivers+ 1rnd pick 2018 and 2020

Boston: L Williams
trade: 1rnd pick clippers 2019 (the pick is lottery protected and will be conveyed in a second round pick in 2021, if the clippers don't make the playoffs) => Boston can sign L williams with the injury excemption from Hayward.

NY: P Beverly
trade: J noah+ 1rnd pick 2018

Memphis: J Noah+Rivers+ Yabusele+ 1rnd pick Clippers 2018+ 1rnd pick Clippers 2020+ 1rnd pick NY 2018
trade: M Conley

Both the clippers and NY pick could be late lottery picks. So Memphis could have three lottery picks in next years draft.

Boston would probably make that deal.
That Clippers pick has so many protections it isn't worth a lot. Acquiring Williams would help the Celtics right now and give them protection in case they decide to let Marcus Smart walk away in July. The only problem is that minutes are hard to come by right now, and adding Williams would only make things worse.
Celtics will probably look to use that Hayward injury exception on another big body, especially with Morris's knee causing problems.
As for the Memphis angle, the Grizzlies would probably have to get two high lottery picks for Conley to make a legit rebuild case with their fans.

the problem for conley is that he's already 31 years old and he's on a massive contract. And there're many good pointguards in the NBA. so the only teams that could make a trade for him are the Clippers and the spurs (just my opinion)

Memphis would propably keep the 2019 pick, if they start a rebuilt now. And they can use the picks to move up in the draft.

C's don't need Conley (no cap room) . Williams would be a better alternative and if they let Smart go Lou would be cheaper IMO.

Brown has started to have his moments of inconsistency so I'm wondering if there is that chance that he could be moved at some point this season. He would fetch a good player and a pick (s) .

I also think that the Hayward exception will be used on a big like Super said, not sure if it would be for Bogut or for Monroe if he is bought out.

I think the C's will go after Tyreke. He'll bring the scoring they need off the bench, and is another guy who's "big for his size. "
