Bos - Orl

Bradley for Vucevic

This would have made perfect sense on Friday. Now that they aren't getting Fultz, I'd have to see what the other shoe looks like when it drops. Vucevic brings exactly what they're looking for, but I need to know what their guard situation looks like before moving Bradley. If they bring in or draft a wing it might be better to move Crowder, especially if it's Hayward they bring in.

Bos / Sac
IT, Crowder and Zeller for WCS and #10.

Bos / NY
IT, Crowder and Zeller for OQuinn and #8.

Bos / NY
IT, Crowder and Zeller for Vucavic
and #6.

Which one would be better?

Send IT back to the dysfunctional Kings team that didn't believe he can be the player he is today? They can simply just draft Fultz and sign Hayward and trade Bradley and some picks for a Center. Vucevic is on Orlando btw.


2.) 20 May 2017 16:34:52
They're all really terrible for Boston to me. They're in win now mode, they shouldn't be trading for more picks and really young players.


3.) 20 May 2017 18:02:50
It's a bit of a buzzkill for fans seeing Celtics be #1 seed and get to Eastern Conference Finals and then basically blow up the team by trading their best player IT. However, as displayed thus far in series with Cavs they still have a long way to go so I think they should shop IT. Issue is I can't imagine any of those teams giving up that much for IT as they are all bad and would be better off keeping a lotto pick than adding IT who is in final year of his deal and probably wouldn't even make any of those teams playoff teams. Best case scenario Celtics keep Fultz and IT, trade Bradley for a big and/ or cap space then just sign Hayward which would enable them to keep talent to win now while maintaining a bright future with Fultz, Brown and 2018 Brooklyn pick which will most likely be a big.

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

Draft
#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.

Makes no sense all kinda awful for every team.


2.) 18 May 2017 15:06:59
This would make the celtics go from eastern finals to a non playoff team.


3.) 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.

Bos / UTA

Crowder, Jackson for Hood and the 13th, this would give Boston a young SG and free up minutes for J. Brown. Boston select a big at 13.

Utah would add a solid defensive player on a great contract. Along with a developing back up PG.

GRNBlood

1.) 04 May 2017 16:34:46
Crowder will be part of a bigger package for someone like a Butler or a big rather than a lesser package with Hood. They need an established big not a draft big. Plus they have Zizic to come in next year.
All depends on where the ping pong ball lands.


2.) 04 May 2017 17:55:01
Please don't mention zizic as someone to come and make any type of impact on a contender.

Agree with the rest of your comment though.


3.) 04 May 2017 21:58:13
I don't know why Zizic shouldn't be mentioned in that light. Nobody is saying he's going to be coming in and starting, but to come in and be a backup big shouldn't be a problem. He also should be in the same boat as a big they would be getting at 13, which is the comparison being made. The guys available there would be players like John Collins from Wake, Jarrett Allen from Texas, or going really early on Leaf. I think Zizic compares at least as the equal of those kind of players.


4.) 05 May 2017 04:31:05
In July when the C's sign this kid I believe he will make an impact. He's strong and that's what the Celtics need to compete with Cav's and the West. If they don't get a big then this kid will definitely get minutes.

Boston & Kings pre draft or draft day.

Draft day trade Thomas, Olynyk to Sac for WCS and McLemore and 2017 Pels pick, 2018 Kings pick.

GRNBlood

1.) 04 Mar 2017 12:00:49
Don't think s kings own their pick next year ( i could be mistaken but I think philly owns it), plus mclemore and Olynyk cannot be traded as they are pending FAs, so the deal I should now virtually IT for WCS and the pelicans pick.
I'm a Celtic fan I'd jump on this, but I know most boston fans wouldn't, and to be honest the kings shouldn't do that trade, but hey they've done worse.


2.) 04 Mar 2017 12:49:12
The Kings own that pick, but they can't trade for it, because Philly owns the 2019 pick.

I don't like this trade for Sacramento or Boston

Sacramento should rebuilt with young players, IT is already 28, no way sacramento can convince two top free agents to join them.

I like WCS going to Boston, but not for IT. They should keep him and go over the cap or they should trade him for another all star, not young players and more draft picks.


3.) 04 Mar 2017 17:39:36
Don't really like the trade for both sides. Boston unless they can get a younger top 15 pg in a deal including Thomas or Fultz completely kills it from the start I think they should pony up the money for him and Bradley since this team has a chance to compete for a championship with one big move (that they have pieces to make) and they'd "just" be going into luxury tax. WCS wouldn't be a bad acquisition for them (and someone they should go after) but I'd give up future picks and assets that wouldn't hurt the team now and which would probably be more appealing to Kings.

Kings are the complete opposite side of the spectrum. Probably the most talent-deprived team in the league and along with the Nets have one of the worst future outlooks for next few years. It makes no sense for them to trade for IT who would probably not want to resign there (his contract expires after next season) and the only thing he'd accomplish is make it more difficult for Kings to get a top lotto pick. This offer is more than they got for Cousins with WCS an underperforming, old for his class former lotto pick (similar to Hield), the same pelicans pick, AND Kings 2018 pick which based on Kings roster is basically a lock to be top 5. Kings can't even trade this pick since they already dealt 2019 pick stupidly. Kings need to just sit tight and get pg (Fox or Ntilikina) and a forward with their picks in this years draft then get the best available player with their pick in 2018 then barring the unforseen should have a solid core with Hield, WCS/ Papagiannis/ Labissiere, Richardson and their 2 2017 picks and 2018 pick.

What do you think Boston would have to give up to get Vucevic from Orlando?

GRNBlood

1.) 28 Dec 2016 13:12:15
My trade was Amir Johnson and the 2018 Brooklyn 1st for Vucevic and a 2nd.


2.) 28 Dec 2016 13:26:55
Simple really.

Brookyln pick in 2018 would get it done.

Marcus smart might get it done.

Both trades would need Amir Johnson involved to make the money work.


3.) 28 Dec 2016 21:50:21
I don't think a brooklyn pick needs to be included. Vuc is the odd man out in orlando and they clearly don't want him as they gave up major assets to bring in Ibaka and then signed Biyombo for top dollar after that. I don't think the market for offensive centers are great so I could see him going for some combo of Grizz and Clippers picks and young assets.

Not sure I like his fit in Boston. He would give them an upgrade in rebounding but not defensively. i do think he is talented tho and his price is attractive.

Boston says no I'm sure they could get a much better return the that.

Unfortunately Lavar has 2 more sons so he will be flapping his yap for several more years.

I would rather send Smart and keep Brown who may become a very good player in a couple years.

Boston could easily give 2 2nds this year maybe all three that it currently has to get it done.
