Boston trades 3 for 5&10...

Trades 5 for future 1st rd. and player and picks Markkanen At 10.


Thoughts?

Good luck.

I think Jackson is a smoke screen on the 22nd.. C's will trade that 3 pick for the 5&10 and offer NOLA these and all the #l's from Philly and next year's Nets and Boston's and player(s)s for AD, hey it's worth the gamble.. Either way they have assets to get extremely good to teams that want a change.. Vucevic, Butler, George, Drummond would all look good in GREEN..

Kings would be foolish to give up #5 and #10 in this draft to get #3. Don't think Pelicans are open to trading AD with Cousins in town now. I trading #1 for more picks signals they are gearing toward the future more than the present.

Why do all the Celts fans post the most ridiculous trades? Heard that LeBron may try for LA after '18. Why don't Celts offer #1 for him? Throw in another 1st rounder in '18. What do you think Celts fans? Deal?


 

 

16 Jun 2017 22:48:27
Reports now have Philly and C's in deep discussions #1 for #3 and future #1 from Philly..

Lakers offering # 2 and Randle for the #1..

I think celtics prefer the picks to be able to get a star with their assets. If you can get pg with 3 or 4 first rounder I would prefer that.

Thomas-hayward-pg-horford-FA
+ JJ, Bradley, Brown of the bench makes you a real contender.
With brown and bradley you have a great small ball lineup too.


2.) 17 Jun 2017 05:10:05
Fultz will go #1 but just not to the Celtics. We'll just have to wait and see if Magic wants to throw that wrench into the C's wheel. I'm sure there is a plan B with another team, maybe Orlando

Rumor has it that Ainge wants as many picks as possible to throw at NOLA for AD.

If they had a crystal ball and could see if Blake would stay healthy and it showed he could they would take him over Gordon, which they still might do.

Boston signs RFA A Williams 4/36-40 mil... Doubt Suns match if they sign Len.. He's undersized but plays like a big..

Sign Hayward or trade for Butler..

Or just sign Williams and draft Fultz and wait till the deadline and see where there at..

Warriors are going to be a force for the future... But will be over the cap when the new season starts unless they move Thompson and find a cheaper version of him..

Looking more and more like Boston will trade down to get the most out of this draft.

Boston Draft night..

Boston trades #1,2nd rd (37), Zeller to Kings for #'s 5 &10 and Hield or WCS.

#5, two 2nd rd (53+56) and Bradley to GS for Thompson..

#10 and Mickey To Orlando for Vucevic.

I could see it if Melo and Wade were in better shape, but Wade is a shell of himself, who knows what Melo can bring and Paul is injury prone. Lebron wants titles. This won't happen.


2.) 13 Jun 2017 20:25:03
What does Wade or Melo have to do with my post?


3.) 13 Jun 2017 22:44:18
Can't see Warriors breaking up this team intentionally. Don't think they'll mind going over the cap to retain one of the best teams ever. Also, Bradley will only be cheaper than Thompson for 1 year then he'll probably make considerable more as a FA.


4.) 14 Jun 2017 00:59:48
I agree on the 1 yr deal, just thru it out there, it would have to be Crowder or Brown.

Wade would be cheaper as Melo with the trade kicker would be 30 mil. If those where what you considered replacements.

All this talk in the next week is nothing more than posturing... Feeling out whose interested in who and gauging trade scenarios..

Celtics having the #1 pick has the biggest advantage.. They have the most to gain.. Take the pick and sign a max FA and be a #1 or 2 seed where as the rest of the lottery teams can't do that..

Trade the pick and get what they need (a big) and still have some flexibility.. Trade those 2nd rounder's for future picks or bundle then and 18 Boston pick for a good contract good player that can step in next year when one or two of their own are gone.. AB, IT.

If James goes another year and doesn't win he'll move on....

Where will he go??

I feel like Chicago makes sense as a place for the Banana boat crew. They could trade for Melo this offseason and sign CP3 (they already have Dwade) then sign Lebron in 2018.

Bulls get Melo and #1 pick
Knicks get #14 pick and Avery Bradley
Celtics get Jimmy Butler.


2.) 14 Jun 2017 09:06:30
If Lebron is serious about contending for a title I don't think a team of Melo, Lebron, CP3 and Wade two years from now is the way to go. All the money they'll make will make it prohibitive to add other talent plus defensively they wouldn't match up well against Golden State at pretty much any position. Wade and Melo are already bad defenders who give little effort on that end, Paul 2 years slower will regress defensively to the point he may no longer be the good defender he is and Lebron would likely be their best defender but being 2 years older won't help him and he'd still have a significant offensive load with that team.

I think it would be tough for Lebron to leave Cleveland since Kyrie in his prime would be very good and Lebron going to a new team would likely create a major adjustment due to his playstyle that could take a year to figure out. That's also what I find so amazing about Durant going to GS he fit in from the beginning. However, I think GS freeflow style offense that was already built around a prolific scorer in Curry made it a rather easy adjustment to add in another great shooter/ scorer.

Memphis - Chandler parsons will turn into The next grant hill so lebron would easily slide into that team.

Maybe the Celtics should no sign a max player this summer..

Take Fultz next month, wait till the trade deadline and then make NOL an offer they can't refuse for Cousins. With both 18 1st rd. picks and IT as an appetizer to start...

Boogie would be a better max contract than IT .

billj

1.) 23 May 2017 01:47:38
I agree Cousins wouldn't be a bad target but I don't think Celtics are interested since they sure could've put together a better offer than Kings finally got and I'm sure the Kings called them since they are one of the teams with the most assets in the league.

This also is betting on Pelicans season not going well and Cousins wanting to leave which I don't think a wise bet especially if they could just sign someone like Hayward this offseason and not waste a season waiting to trade for a guy who may not even be available.

I can see Ainge playing a couple of teams here and making out bigtime by the time July comes to get what he needs.. We know he doesn't need a guard, he needs a big.. And because they will be flirting with cap problems if they sign Hayward to a max.. So he swaps picks with the Lakers for a "fee" and then trades Fultz in July for a big and he gets what he wants..

Some may disagree that Ainge is smart but honestly, he's a freaking genius guys..

Just sit back and watch....

billj

1.) 18 May 2017 04:17:37
I'm not so sure Ainge is a genius. I think too much credit is given to him for that one big trade with Billy King of the Nets where he got three unprotected firsts and a pick swap for aging Pierce and Garnett. If you look at some of the other moves Billy King made (trading a top 3 protected pick that ended up being Damian Lillard for Gerald Wallace who was an expiring contract that they subsequently went and overpaid) one can conclude it wasn't so much Ainge's genius in that trade but King's ignorance.

Ainge certainly isn't a bad GM and has made saavy moves such as getting IT, moving Rondo at the right time (Mavs got kinda screwed as it never worked out) and has a solid draft history (some misses such as James Young, Fab Melo and RJ Hunter but some good picks such as Avery Bradley and although none of higher picks have been great all are at least contributors) .

Ainge however has gotten a bit too worried about "winning" every trade and has probably held on to his chips too long and the team that was a star short of contending is getting older and soon more expensive as IT and Bradley's cheap deals expire. Ainge probably should've unloaded some assets to get a star a year or to ago. If they had Butler on this team right now (there were a lot of rumors of moves for him last offseason and even throughout this season) this series with the Cavs would look completely different and they may have a shot at a title.

Ainge still has a lot of chips to play with but he needs to start doing something with them or everything he built up to this point will be wasted.

Cleveland is about to become a dysfunctional team. Gilbert got his championship title, Blow it up now Dan. First move, trade the dude that has lied to you a few times and is about to do it again.

This trade would be good for Portland, they can get below the cap quicker. But think there are better options to do that.

For Cleveland, they don't need McCollum, nor Vonleh. They'll need picks if they decide to go in a different direction. No GM 2 days before the Draft, CRAZY!

Cleveland will pretty much have to take a different road. If Gilbert is smart he'll trade James to Lakers or Clippers. James might be the best now but he's about to screw the Cavs again. Wouldn't shock me if he tried to worm his way to GS. lol.

I can agree with 90% of this trade. Only thing I can't is Crowder being involved. They'll need Crowder, and picks to flip to the Bulls for Butler. George said again this weekend he wants a Southern CA destination, Boston is out of the picture.

Boston is still going to throw 5, that's right, 5 1st rd. picks and some seconds, Zeller and maybe even Crowder in this scenario, for AD. They have to at least throw it on the wall.

C's already executed plan A, I'm sure they have a plan BCDEFGHIJ etc.

C's would like to get the 5 too instead of Willy. 5 Could get them Jackson, or Isaac (who I'd prefer) and then the 10 and a second rder and Mickey for Vucevic.

Either way, pick they take will need time to develop. Any Center they get needs to be a starter though. Horford is best suited for the 4.
