As a Celtics fan, I would not want to trade Jaylen Brown for a pick in this year’s draft. However, if Danny Ainge has his sights on Mo Bamba I would feel like he would test the waters. The problem is Ainge will not overpay, but await an opportunity of value. I would think that value would occur if Bamba fell out of the top 5. Therefore, I feel the following trade would be appropriate if Bamba was available at #6:

Boston trades Terry Rozier, #27, and the 2019 Kings/ Sixers pick

Orlando trades #6

I believe the trade works moneywise. Thoughts?

sac pick feels too valuable for this. it could end up higher than 6 given it’s unprotected, memphis pick makes more sense.


2.) 31 May 2018 05:24:53
I think bamba upped his stock at the combine 6 is definitely pushing the boundaries of his availability i'm guessing.


3.) 31 May 2018 05:54:47
If you want to move up that far, I think it's reasonable given the variables in that Kings and the lack of success players have had after leaving Boston.


4.) 31 May 2018 06:30:12
Too much of a overpay Bamba would be nice but come on Celtics don’t have to do much just try and resign current roster and get the players healthy ( Kyrie, Hayward, Theis)


5.) 31 May 2018 07:38:34
@rad23 wouldn't deal Rozier but tatum played so well along with Rozier, smart and Hayward seem expendable. Bamba could be a nice piece for the celts if those guys were involved and a pick or 2.

Swing for the fence trade...

Bos-Avery Bradley
Jaylen Brown
Jae Crowder
Terry Rozier
Jordan Mickey
2018 Nets pick
2019 Memphis pick

Utah-Rudy Gobert

Th numbers would be close to allow for the a Gordon H. signing as well. I am well aware that the likelihood is LOW, but I think this is a relatively equal trade for both teams.

Gobert is untouchable.


2.) 06 Jul 2017 10:54:20
Gobert would be a great fit in Boston as a defensive anchor that just turned 25, signed for next 4 years and is a much better rebounder than anyone they have. I wouldn't say Gobert is untouchable with Jazz losing Hayward and Gobert not quite the franchise caliber player who can fill his void due to his offensive limitations (Not to mention the loaded western conference) . that's pretty great value to me if I'm the Jazz especially since Favors could be slid back to center and could see if he could recoup his old form (and stay healthy) . Nets pick would enable them to get a replacement big man, Crowder can fill in some of void left by Hayward, Brown is a good young piece and that Memphis pick will probably be in lotto with that aging Memphis team in a loaded west.

Financially Celtics would have to do more to make it work but I think they should explore it.

Bos-Jae Crowder
NY-Kyle O'Quinn

This trade would save Boston a little less than $3mm (for Gordon H. signing) and would produce a replacement for Amir Johnson.

The Knicks would be receiving the better player on a team friendly contract and would turn their depth from the bigs into a wing.

I think Celtics could get better value on Crowder however Oquinn wouldn't be a bad backup big.

This is a question:

Kyrie Irving for Porzingis?

Which player has higher trade value?
Which team would say no?

Personally, I think Kyrie and the 9 for Porzingis is a fair eqully beneficial trade.

JedIII

1.) 12 Jun 2018 05:08:24
Don’t think this would ever happen only way the Knicks do it is if Kylie wants a career in NY and if he does they wait a year to get him and keep Porzingis


2.) 12 Jun 2018 09:21:51
Yeah Celtics got to know what Kyrie is doing if he wants to stay give him what he wants he is a superstar when you consider Chris Paul at his age is getting a super max Kyrie is super supermax guy.


3.) 12 Jun 2018 23:32:55
If the rumors are true and NY is really first on his short list, I agree with Shee, why trade for him? It's not like adding Irving makes them a contender next year. Plus, Porzingas might have more of an impact on games than Irving does.

He can be a great offensive player, a dominant defensive player and a force on the boards when he's at his best. Irving at his best is a dominant offensive player, but just average every where else and I think you can make a case that that makes more of an impact. I'd probably take KP though. The guy looks like he was built in a lab to play in today's game. Outside of wishing he was a little more assertive on the boards, he does everything you could want out of a modern day big man.

On defense, he can block shots, play post defense, get back in transition and isn't a liability if switched out on the perimeter. On offense, he can shoot the 3, run the floor, finish, go by slower guys off the dribble, he can shoot over most wings, and he has enough of a post game to punish smaller defenders. The only other guy in the league that can give you a similiar skill set is probably AD and maybe Myles Turner to a certain extent if you really want to just look at skill set. The guy is an absolute freak and I think you go forward with him as long as you think his rehab is going well.

I want to be clear that I don't believe this has a shred of hope, but with LeBron passively threatening to leave Cleveland and with Golden State having luxury tax issues in a couple of years, who would say no in this trade?

Cle-LeBron James
GS-Klay Thompson
Draymond Green

I think both say no but Golden State louder. The two are bitter rivals so I think a trade between the two is heavily unlikely. Trading Lebron sounds taboo but looking at Cavs situation where they don't have many avenues to improve and Lebron leaving for nothing, adding two younger all-stars to their two remaining all-stars of Kyrie and Love doesn't sound bad at all but then you look at Golden State and you realize you just helped put the top 2 players in the NBA together along with Curry who is probably top 5 and I don't think you beat them in a series of 7 with all 3 able to take over a game. Also, with a big 4 of their own the Cavs would encounter the very same salary cap issues the Warriors would be trying to avoid in the future when they may have the best chance to beat Warriors as Lebron ages past 35.

On Golden States end I think they've made it clear they don't care much about the luxury tax issues as evident by their aggressive offseason. If this is the case the only thing stopping them from keeping this core together is if one of them wants out (although they could be a part of a historic dynasty and one of the most dominant teams ever so I doubt they would) since with their Bird rights GS can give them more money than any other team. Lebron is great and likely talented enough to make it work between him, Durant and Curry but I don't think anyone would argue he wouldn't be as good a fit as Klay and Draymond who both don't need the ball as much and are elite defenders (Lebron's effort on the defense end has waned over past few years) . They are also both 5 years younger than Lebron which enables this team to compete at the highest level for longer.

The cost to retain both is significant but I think if Warriors were to trade one of them it wouldn't happen for at least another year and they'd want a high draft pick/ promising prospect (s) still on rookie deal and a veteran that can hold them over in the meantime (or a trade exception so they can get one via FA) . If Warriors want to continue the dynasty they'll have to add some higher level young talent and they aren't going to get good draft picks anytime soon.

I know 'tis the season for trade proposals, free agent signings, and other fantasy ideas for changing our favorite teams into title contenders, but I want to change my favorite sport. The NBA is set up very poorly; business wise and basketball wise.

There are many things we all would change, but what is one thing you would change on the court and or one thing you would change off the court?

Off the Court: I would eliminate max contracts; cost certainty for elite players hinders competitive balance in the league and makes the top 10 or so players bargains, which gives those teams a HUGE advantage in a sport so affected by having the best player on the floor.

On the Court: When teams are in the bonus, give the fouled team the choice of free throws or possession. The idea of bonus free throws after so many team fouls was designed to give the team being fouled an advantage. The way the game is played today makes that the opposite. It also slows the game down terribly and sometimes becomes a FT contest.

I'd say max contracts hurt teams more than helping them. There are probably 10 to 15 players in the league worth the max and far more with the max.


2.) 18 Jun 2017 05:25:37
I agree a change should be done around max contracts but I don't think eliminating them is the right thing to do. The player's association would never allow it since what would end up happening is the top 1% of NBA players would make like 90% of all the money. Similar to how the new super-max contracts are I think there should be more explicit criteria that allows a player to get different levels of max contracts. This would not only help reward the best players more but not allow teams to foolishly give max contracts to guys underserving of them. For example hitting certain accolades such as making an all-nba team, starting over 60 games, finishing top 10 in assists and things like that should be able to boost the amount of money you can get from some baseline max which is lower than current numbers. I also, don't like how max contracts are currently tied to how long you've been in the NBA since players typically become less valuable the longer they've been in the NBA and nobody wants to be paying 30+ year olds 30+ mill per year.

I appreciate what you are trying to do, but some flaws:

1) The Lakers could not make this trade until after they draft at #25, because of the stupid Stepien rule. Although, I believe changing the ‘19 LAL pick to ‘20 would be fine.
2) The Celtics have pick #27, not #26.
3) This trade would not clear enough cap space to sign LeBron, and I don’t relinquishing all claims would change that, but I haven’t done the math.
4) Trevor Ariza will not sign for 1 year $8mm. He has stated he wants 3-4 years for $50-$60mm. I’m not saying he will get what he wants, but your scenario is so different from his expectations that I doubt it will happen.
5) DeAndre Jordan is not taking a paycut, and he made $22.6 mm last year, so $15mm is not cutting it.
6) The Timberwolves are getting hosed in this deal.
7) How does Brandon Ingram, the crippling contract known as Luol Deng, #25, and a future draft pick that would most likely be in the 20’s turn into Andrew Wiggins and Al Horford?

Maybe I overrate him, but Jaylen Brown is one of the most valuable young players in the league:

21 year old SG with excellent size (6-7), athleticism, almost 40% from 3-point, excellent current defense with elite future potential, and a player who raised his scoring in the playoffs. Yes, I know Irving going down would give him more scoring opportunities, but as a young player he didn’t shrivel in the spotlight.

Therefore, I wouldn’t want to give him up for a pick unless I thought he has maxed out as a player, which he has not.

The argument that a team has plenty of assets, therefore they will/ can overpay is one of the dumbest arguments out there.

What offer would the Celtics be competing against for them to make such an aggressive offer?

If the Spurs initiated this offer, I don’t think Ainge would even counter it.

The Celtics give up two all-stars, receive zero starter and two players who will receive no playing time in the playoffs? The two draft picks, 9 and 14 are outside the quality prospects in the draft, but my favorite part.? The Celtics still have to give up their first round pick.
