Bleacher Report just reported Avery Bradley to Detroit for Marcus Morris.

Maybe Crowder is part of a bigger deal for Gasol or another Big.. Either way C's need a paint clogger..

Initially I didn't like it for both teams but I guess it works for both. Celtics don't get the big man they needed but they get a solid all-around, cheap pf/ sf that could start for them.

For Pistons Bradley gives them the player they hoped KCP would eventually become. Since Bradley is due an extension next season and Pistons already over the cap I assume they don't plan on keeping both so this is likely mean they won't resign KCP. An interesting turn of events since they seemed to be very high on him but I'd be wary about giving him the 20+ mill per year he likely wants too. Moving Morris also opens up some minutes for guys like Stanley Johnson who looked promising in his rookie year.

Maybe Monroe from Milwaukee for Smart?


3.) 07 Jul 2017 16:36:26
Might want to call Minnesota. Dieng is probably available.


4.) 07 Jul 2017 16:45:16
Monroe for Smart doesn't work after the Hayward signing and with Delly and Smart both being on the roster seems redundant for the Bucks.


5.) 07 Jul 2017 17:51:17
Bucks are looking for another PG, Dellavedova has been playing PG/ SG as has Brogdan Also PG/ SG. GPll will soon be gone, as will Vaughn. Milwaukee is pretty much a "Position less" team. Smart could also be the PG/ SG they are looking for. Boston still needs a center that can take up space. Monroe does that, plus he is also a scorer. But, Boston would also have to give up either another player, or one of many draft picks they hold. to even out the trade.

Orlando-Boston

Vucevic

Crowder and Smart

Celtics can't afford Vucevic. They have to trade Crowder or Smart to make room to sign Hayward.


2.) 05 Jul 2017 05:25:59
Sure they can.


3.) 05 Jul 2017 06:38:54
for me i want to unload bradley bec his contract is expirkng crowder have a very good cheap contract.


4.) 05 Jul 2017 11:51:59
Needs to be Crowder, because with Brown, Tatum aND Hayward, he is redundant. Plus, with his contact, he is very desirable to other teams. Of course, that doesn't mean that try won't trade Bradley or Smart as well.


5.) 05 Jul 2017 17:37:28
Crowder and Bradley for Vucevic is the move I was looking at as well. Crowder is the odd man out as far as the rotation is concerned, and he's the contract people will want. Both Smart and Bradley are up after the coming season, but Bradley is the one you'd have to move in this trade as he's the one who's contract makes the money work in this scenario. At that point, I think you move Brown into the starting lineup, and keep Smart in his role off the bench. Rozier gets more minutes, and Horford and Vucevic are your primary bigs with Zizic coming off the bench.

Suns-Celtics

Boston- Chandler

Suns- Mickey, Zeller, Rozier

Zeller just got waived.


2.) 03 Jul 2017 17:23:28
But he can easily be brought back.

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..

billj

1.) 18 Jun 2017 05:39:44
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.


2.) 18 Jun 2017 22:42:04
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?

Now that George and Griffin are of the table the only way Hayward is going to Boston is if AINGE offers everything, all picks and what ever NOLA wants for AD, and hopes they bite...

Monty Williams getting The Craig Sager Award was so powerful..

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.

I doubt Boston would trade Horford unless he's part of a deal for AD to make #'s work.

I don't think trading IT at the deadline is unrealistic. If DA can find a deal that will benefit the C's this year at the deadline and in the future he wouldn't think twice about moving him. And on the flip side I think that at the deadline Jae Crowder could be flipped, he contract is a bargain and appealing to other teams, probably the reason why they kept him instead of AB.

#1 can't happen now. Raptors traded D Carrol. future 1 and 2nd rounder's for Hamilton. Brooklyn hasn't learned about not trading 1st rounder's yet.

I think after signing Crawford the Wolves are going to cool it for a bit, they've been very busy this off season.

Vucevic makes 12,250, Crowder makes 6,796 unless these guys have a trade kicker.

Boston is the only team that is at the cap. But IMO Boston needs to get Vucevic. Zizic is going to be a work in progress and Horford really wants to be at the 4 so getting a 7 footer that will block the lane and get boards is essential.

Boston sais they won't trade Crowder, but that was yesterday and when you look at the future they will need an aggressive 7 footer to clog the lane when LBJ is coming through.

They say that Marcus Morris was the best defender against James last year, but they still need someone there for other palyers. Zizic can't and won't play 30 minutes at the 5 so someone needs to be brought in. Losing KO will hurt the C's.
