CELTICS - O. Porter Jr, Oubre Jr
WIZARDS - Millsap, Rosier, Beasley
NUGGETS - Hayward

CELTICS - Porter helps an already robust defense and Oubre becomes a nice piece off the bench. Porter Jr's contract is high but arguably looks better than Haywards with his rough start.

WIZARDS - Millsap is still a useful piece and his contract has a team option for next year. This wouldn't be simply a salary dump though as the Wizards would also get a potential Wall replacement in Rozier. They'd need to have a taker for Wall (wink/ wink Phoenix) . Beasley was buried a bit in Denver but he's still on his rookie deal and could blossom with a new start. So Wizards get future salary relief, potential cheaper Wall replacement, and a flyer on a young dude.

NUGGETS - Obviously Denver would be betting that Hayward would do better in a different environment and they do have a need at SF even with a healthy Barton. Lyles, Plumlee, and Hernangomez can soak up Millsap's minutes. Denver has shown they want to be in the mix for big name stars (ie. rumors regarding potential Butler, George, and Love trades) but have yet to be able to attract any via free agency - Millsap being the exception. Trading is the only way they get it done. However, with Denver currently sitting at #1 in the west, hard to see them messing with the sauce right now. A fun idea nonetheless.

I don't think the nuggets need a SF with a healthy Barton that costs 31mil. Millsap is playing great for them, and will re-sign for less likely. Celtics should trade Hayward after the season. Hopefully he puts his game back together by then. Consistently.

The two players Boston gives up are both better than either player it gets in return. Hard no from Ainge on this one.

Agree with Supercollider this time.
