Once the news came out that there may be tensions between towns and Minnesota, I had to make a hypothetical trade scenario. I see towns being a great fit in Boston. Here's what I propose:

T-wolves trade: Towns, Aldrich
T wolves receive: Brown, Turner, Yabusele, 2019 LAC 1st

Pacers trade: Turner, Young, and Joseph
Pacers receive: Rozier, Maker, Henson, and Morris

Celtics trade: Brown, Rozier, Horford, Yabusele, Morris, 2019 LAC 1st
Celtics receive: Towns, Young, Snell, Joseph, Aldrich (waive)

Bucks trade: Henson, Snell, and Maker
Bucks receive: Horford

What do people think?

Minnesota would need that Sacramento pick plus maybe the Memphis pick to even listen.

Horford is like Henson and Maker, A PF that plays Center, Except, Henson is 6'11" and Maker is 7'1", while Horford is 6'9" maybe 6'10". (Oddly enough, Horfords father "Tito Horford" did play for the Bucks at one time) Now, Why would Milwaukee trade two PF/ C, plus a SG to get back One PF/ C? I'm sorry, It just seems like a bad trade for all teams involved.

@carl006, if Minnesota insists then the pick could be changed to the SAC 2019 pick. However, I don't believe they need both picks if Brown and Turner are included.

@torque hardbar, because Horford is an all star center and way better than both Maker and Henson right now. One of the Bucks biggest problem last year was creating offense in the half court set. Horford would help tremendously in this area because he is one of the few 5's you can actually run an offense through. Also, he is a former player of Bud's so he could be incorporated into the offense seamlessly.

@1088jonesp, I believe Milwaukee would go another direction, and go after D. Jordan from the Clippers. Horford might be an all star, But I don't believe he is the answer for the Buck's. Milwaukee does need to move Henson, Dellavedova, and their contracts! Snell has been a let down as has Bledsoe. Horfords game is more offense, than defense. Bigger Center's always push him around. The Bucks need a Center, that doesn't need the ball, Is a very good rebounder (The Bucks were 30th in the league in rebounding) Can protect the rim, and can get his own shot. I don't think Horford fits that need.

Torque, while Jordan is clearly the better rebounder, Horford has been the better defender over the past 2 or 3 years. Horford will probably end up in the top 5 for dpoy.

rkeene, I would still rather have Jordan, than Horford. I can't see Horford in the top 5 for dpoy. I'm sorry. Since Milwaukee has a New coach now, Hard to tell what he is thinking?

Yeah Horford deserves to be in the top 5 Dpoy.

@torque hardbar, you said the bucks need a center who can get his own shot and you claim Jordan is the solution for that. That's hilarious. Jordan has to have one of the worst post games I've ever seen. Spacing was a huge issue for the Bucks last year and I think Jordan would only add to this problem. This is why I think Horford is a better fit for the Bucks. He is a great leader who can anchor the team on offensive and defensive. He doesn't need the ball to be effective. He can be a spot up shooter, set off ball screens for his teammates, or make a play off the dribble. He is a very diverse player and he can mend his game to fit any team. I think the Bucks should go sign Ed Davis or some other cheap, efficient rebounder to address their rebounding need.

I also believe Bud is a great coach and he will clean up a lot of the problems that plagued the Bucks last year. I expect a top 4 finish for them this year.

@1088jonesp, I would go with Jordan, I didn't hear of to many back to back 20 RPG with Horford? Plus, he's to small by todays standards, If Horford is such a great leader, Why was he traded? As far as adding Ed Davis or? for rebounding, Why get 2 players to do the job that one should be doing? I do agree about Budenholzer, Hopefully he can start by moving "Henson, Parker, Dellevedova, Maker, Bledsoe, and J. Terry! " No one knows what D. J. Wilson can do, he spent more time in their "G" league, than on the floor with the Buck's. Milwaukee needs a legit Center, a decent PG (Put Brogdan back there) a decent backup SF, Muhhamad?

@torque so why’s Horford still in the playoffs fighting for a championship? Everything you say is just so stupid!

Why would the celtics trade horford you ask? Well if you had to choose between a soon to be 32 year old and a 22 year old potential MVP then it's a pretty easy choice. The Bucks don't have enough assets to get Towns without decimating the rest of the squad so Horford is a good cheaper option.

I'm going to have to disagree with you on Jordan in Milwaukee. Teams can nullify Jordan's impact by going under all of his screens knowing the fact that neither Bledsoe nor Giannis is an outside threat. Also, Jordan is an overrrated rim protector. He had less than a block a game last year. Horford's outside shooting and playmaking skills could give the Bucks another dimension.

I agree with you in that the Bucks need to get rid of the deadweight. Too much wasted cap in dellavedova and Henson. I don't like Muhammad though. He's a defensive liability and isn't a legit 3pt threat. Bucks need to cut their ties with him.
