Celtics get: Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson and 2018 first round pick

Cavaliers get: Isaiah Thomas and Al Horford

Celtics may be giving up too much but Irving and Thompson are younger with better contracts so it might work out well if they don't think they can contend with the Warriors for a championship in the next three years or so.

Celtics giving up too much? I think they are giving up too little. I think Thompson would be a better fit for the Celtics due to his rebounding, being younger and since they have talented forwards they could use a more conventional center. Even though Horford is the better player the gap in value between Irving and IT is big due to their contract situations and respective ages. This move would still allow Celtics to compete while improving their future.

For the Cavs it makes them older and not sure it makes them any better. I'd like this trade more if they dealt Love for a forward who could defend better and still be a decent shooter.

The Celtics are in a truly unique situation in terms of possibilities for their offseason starting this Saturday. They have, by far, the best mix of veteran talent, young talent, draft assets, and cap space to finesse into a super team if they so desire. Countless rumors have already floated around the Celtics, and big names such as Gordon Hayward, Paul George, and Blake Griffin have been linked to the Celtics. Here is a breakdown on how the Celtics can acquire all three of these names while also bringing over Guerschon Yabusele and Ante Zizic from overseas, all while hanging on to a good chuck of those aforementioned assets.

Transaction #1: Renounce the right to Jonas Jerebko, Amir Johnson, James Young, and Gerald Green as free agents, don't tender Kelly Olynyk a qualifying offer, and release Tyler Zeller, Jordan Mickey, and Demetrius Jackson before their contracts become guaranteed.

These moves would allow the Celtics to free up a decent amount of cap space since, all of them possess cap holds that would otherwise hinder the Celtics ability to sign Hayward. Here is a look at the Celtics' salary cap situation without any of those players as a part of their roster:

Al Horford: $27,734,405
Avery Bradley: $8,808,989
Jae Crowder: $6,796,117
Isaiah Thomas: $6,261,395
Jayson Tatum: $5,645,400
Jaylen Brown: $4,956,480
Marcus Smart: $4,538,020
Guerschon Yabusele: $2,247,480
Terry Rozier: $1,988,520
Ante Zizic: $1,645,200
Empty Roster Slot: $815,615
Empty Roster Slot: $815,615
Total Salary: $72,253,236

With an estimated salary cap of $99 million and Gordon Hayward expected to take nothing less than the maximum $29.7 million available to him, the Celtics will have to find a way to shed slightly less than $3 million off their current salary cap to be able to sign him. One man in this group who has trade value and an expiring contract (retaining him after this season would be a difficult choice for the Celtics to make since he will undoubtedly receive inflated offers from various teams due to his defensive skill set and young age) is Marcus Smart, and he should be the odd man out in my opinion should the Celtics get a verbal agreement from Hayward to sign with them. If this is the case, the Celtics should look around throughout the league for a defensive-minded big man who is on a cheap contract. Therefore:

Transaction #2: Celtics trade Marcus Smart to the Sacramento Kings for Skal Labissiere

Labissiere would provide the Celtics with a young center (something they are lacking) who could potentially start for this team immediately and not have to worry about the burden of providing anything on the offensive end, instead focusing strictly on the defensive end and rebounding. Although the Kings just drafted De'Aaron Fox, already have Buddy Hield, and just signed Bogdan Bogdanovic, they can use Smart off the bench to back up both starters and provide the team with a lot of energy and very strong defense off the bench. Shall he perform well for them, they will have more than enough money to retain him once he becomes a restricted free agent next year. Here is how the salary cap situation would look like for the Celtics following this trade:

Al Horford: $27,734,405
Avery Bradley: $8,808,989
Jae Crowder: $6,796,117
Isaiah Thomas: $6,261,395
Jayson Tatum: $5,645,400
Jaylen Brown: $4,956,480
Guerschon Yabusele: $2,247,480
Terry Rozier: $1,988,520
Ante Zizic: $1,645,200
Skal Labissiere: $1,242,240
Empty Roster Slot: $815,615
Empty Roster Slot: $815,615
Total Salary: $68,957,456

Transaction #3: Sign Gordon Hayward

The previous mentioned trade would leave the Celtics with enough money to sign Gordon Hayward, making their salary cap situation look like this:

Gordon Hayward: $29,700,000
Al Horford: $27,734,405
Avery Bradley: $8,808,989
Jae Crowder: $6,796,117
Isaiah Thomas: $6,261,395
Jayson Tatum: $5,645,400
Jaylen Brown: $4,956,480
Guerschon Yabusele: $2,247,480
Terry Rozier: $1,988,520
Ante Zizic: $1,645,200
Skal Labissiere: $1,242,240
Empty Roster Slot: $815,615
Total Salary: $97,841,841

Now that the Celtics have Hayward, let's move on to George, who the Celtics would have to acquire via trade by meeting salary cap rules since they'd be dangerously close to being over the salary cap after signing Hayward. Provided below is a trade that would work salary wise and the Pacers would have a very tough time turning down:

Transaction #4: Celtics trade Jae Crowder, Avery Bradley, 2018 Celtics first round pick, 2019 Boston Celtics, and 2019 Los Angeles Clippers first round pick to the Indiana Pacers for Paul George

With the packages teams have received for superstar players in the last few months (DeMarcus Cousins and Chris Paul), there is no way the Pacers would receive a better offer for George than this one. It's a hefty price to give up if you're the Celtics, but necessary since Crowder's and Bradley's salaries are the only two salaries that can be put together to legally, under salary cap rules, work out a trade for George, unless they'd be willing to give up Isaiah Thomas, Jaylen Brown, or Jayson Tatum, which is highly doubtful. The Celtics' pick next year and in 2019 will not be high picks at all (they would be allowed to trade both in consecutive years since they have another first round pick next year in the Brooklyn Nets' pick) and the Clippers' pick has no potential to be a lottery pick, taking the various protections into consideration. All those picks would be well worth giving up for a player of George's caliber. Here is a breakdown of how the Celtics salary cap situation would like following this trade:

Gordon Hayward: $29,700,000
Al Horford: $27,734,405
Paul George: $19,508,958
Isaiah Thomas: $6,261,395
Jayson Tatum: $5,645,400
Jaylen Brown: $4,956,480
Guerschon Yabusele: $2,247,480
Terry Rozier: $1,988,520
Ante Zizic: $1,645,200
Skal Labissiere: $1,242,240
Empty Roster Slot: $815,615
Empty Roster Slot: $815,615
Total Salary: $102,561,308

Now here is where things get interesting. The Celtics' interest in Griffin has also been well documented, as it should be. Despite suffering through some injuries this past season, Griffin is one of the most offensively gifted big men in the league. He is also only 28-years-old. The problem is that the Celtics wouldn't have anything close to enough money to sign him outright as a free agent. However, what if he were to inform the Clippers that he plans on leaving them in free agency regardless of who he signs with? Wouldn't the Clippers want to get some type of value in return for him? Wouldn't someone like Al Horford be more than they can ask for in a situation in which they lose Griffin?

Transaction #5: Celtics trade Al Horford to the Los Angeles Clippers for a sign-and-traded Blake Griffin

Although Horford may be a better defensive player than Griffin, there is no denying who the better overall player is out of the two. Taking into account the fact that Griffin is a few years younger than Horford, this trade would work out to be a good trade for the Celtics in both the short term and the long term. Here is a final breakdown of what the Celtics' salary cap situation and depth chart would look like following all of these transactions:

Gordon Hayward: $29,700,000
Blakr Griffin: $29,700,000
Paul George: $19,508,958
Isaiah Thomas: $6,261,395
Jayson Tatum: $5,645,400
Jaylen Brown: $4,956,480
Guerschon Yabusele: $2,247,480
Terry Rozier: $1,988,520
Ante Zizic: $1,645,200
Skal Labissiere: $1,242,240
Empty Roster Slot: $815,615
Empty Roster Slot: $815,615
Total Salary: $104,526,903

PG: Thomas/Rozier
SG: Hayward/Tatum
SF: George/Brown
PF: Griffin/Yabusele
C: Labissiere/Zizic

Through these various transactions, the Celtics would acquire three bona-fide superstars to add to another superstar in Thomas, all while keeping their salary cap payroll below the luxury tax limit (at least for one more year), bringing over their two young rookies from overseas that they selected last year (both who could play a crucial part on the team since it would be lacking experienced big men), keeping all of their important future first round draft picks that could all turn out to be high draft picks, and keep youngsters such as Brown, Tatum, and Rozier while acquiring another one in Labissiere (albeit at Smart's expense).

Finally, the team would then be free to go out and pursue free agents such as Ersan Ilyasova, Nene, Tony Allen, Vince Carter, Zaza Pachulia, Andrew Bogut, David Lee, or David West for the league minimum or sign some of their second round picks (Kadeem Allen, Jabari Bird, Abdel Nader, or Semi Ojeleye) for the league minimum.


1.) 30 Jun 2017 06:23:43
If I'm Celtics I'd probably prefer WCS (Kings may too since Labissiere can play some pf) . Probably should try and bring a 3rd team into the Clippers trade but I guess if they got Horford they could sign a point guard and still try and be half decent (although their best route would likely be a big rebuild where they get a draft pick or young asset instead of Horford) .

2.) 30 Jun 2017 13:14:33
I can't see the clippers wanting to take on the horford contract, a contract I consider to be a bad one.

Milwaukee Bucks/New York Knicks

Bucks receive: Krisptaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah
Knicks receive: Jabari Parker, Thon Maker, Malcolm Brogdon, and Greg Monroe

I'm surprised this trade hasn't been suggested yet! Pairing the soon to be 22-year-old Porzingis with the 22-year old Giannis Antetokounmpo would undoubtedly provide the Bucks with one of the most exciting duos in the league. The length and versatility of these two players would make them extremely hard to guard. The team would need some more talent around them but I'm sure the combination of age and talent these two possess would make playing in Milwaukee that much more bearable for for various soon to be free agents.


1.) 25 Jun 2017 06:42:53
Im a knicks fan and absolutely love zingas but if knicks were offered this trade it would be very hard to not atleast consider it.

2.) 25 Jun 2017 22:08:13
Trade Porzingis for Parker, Monroe, Vaughn or Henson,

Milwaukee keeps Brogdan, and Maker

NY keeps Noah!

Ideal offseason for the Philadelphia 76ers:

Move 1: Draft Markelle Fultz

Move 2: Trade Dario Saric, Jahlil Okafor, Jerryd Bayless, rights to 2016 first-round pick (26th overall) Furkan Korkmaz, Philadelphia 76ers 2018 first-round pick and 2018 Lakers/2019 Kings pick (whichever one is not traded to the Celtics) to the Indiana Pacers for Paul George

Move 3: Terminate Gerald Henderson's non-guaranteed contract

Move 4: Sign Gordon Hayward

Move 5: Sign Dion Waiters

Upon drafting Fultz (highly likely), the 76ers will be positioned wonderfully for the future with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Fultz amongst a handful of other young bodies who look primed to be solid role players in the future. Needless to say, they'll be an intriguing location for free agents to consider. In addition, they're in a unique position this offseason where they have a lot of young trade assets, future draft picks, and more cap space than any other team can imagine.

The trade package presented above would really hard for the Pacers to turn down. A combination of young players and solid picks might be better than any combination offered by another team. The combination of three extremely talents potential stars and George, in addition to the need of a shooter/scorer and maximum cap space, would have to, at minimum, intrigue Hayward to join the 76ers. Terminating Henderson's non-guaranteed contract would save the team about eight million dollars, leaving them with about 15 million dollars left to spend. A team could never have enough shooters on their roster in today's NBA, so spending that money on Waiters (a 25-year-old Philadelphia native coming off a breakout season) would only make logical sense.

These moves would leave the team's depth chart looking like this (age in parenthesis at the start of 2017-2018 season):

1. Fultz(19)/McConnell(25)
2. Hayward(27)/Waiters(25)/Stauskas(24)
3. George(27)/Covington(26)/Anderson(23)
4. Simmons(21)/Long(24)
5. Embiid(23)/Holmes(24)

That is a team with an average age of 24 years, solid depth, star talent, and unlimited potential.

And Paul george leaves you guys high and dry for LA after one season.

2.) 19 Jun 2017 17:20:23
This would be a hard situation to leave on top of the extra money.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 17:20:30
Slow down there sir. what's the need to do all this in one offseason? let's see what the Sixers have first before attempting to mortgage the future for a one year rental and a decent player in Hayward.

I also love all the Lakers fans acting as if George is already a Laker. It's comical. Common sense would tell you he doesn't leave a middle of the road team to end up on a.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 17:20:41
. much worse team.

5.) 19 Jun 2017 18:55:37
Paul George has very little trade value. He's bolting next year. Sixers pass on that huge return.

I'll give the pacer okafor and a few 2nd rounders and possibly a euro. That's literally max. He's a rent a player at best.

Jazz in: Chris Paul, T. Gibson, and B. Bass

The Celtics undoubtedly have the best mix of veteran talent and young prospects/draft picks in the entire NBA. The problems lies in the justified opinion that the team simply doesn't have the talent to compete with the Cleveland Cavaliers over the next few years. Up to this point, the team has been unwilling to part with their young talents and draft picks in return for a superstar or a few stars. If this trend continues this offseason and the team is unable to nab one of the top free agents off the open market, a better route for the team may be a full on rebuild, taking advantage of their still youthful veteran talent and turning them into the best young team and potential-filled team in the NBA by a country mile.

Note: I'm not saying that a Celtics rebuild is the best route for the team to take by any stretch of the imagination. What I am saying is that if the Celtics don't decide to at least consolidate some of their assets this offseason and miss out on top free agents, this is simply a route the team should consider taking.

Move 1: Draft Markelle Fultz

This is the most obvious and easiest move for the Celtics to make. Fultz would give the team their point guard of the future who can do a little bit of some things and a lot of many things for the Celtics for years to come.

Move 2: Let Amir Johnson, Jonas Jerebko, Gerald Green, and James Young walk in free agency

While solid role players for the Celtics this past season, none of these players (besides Young) would fit on a rebuilding team trying to accumulate as much young talent as possible.

Move 3: Let go of the non-guaranteed contracts of Tyler Zeller, Demetrius Jackson, and Jordan Mickey

Mickey and Jackson are both still young but both of them don't project to do much in the league at this point. Zeller is a smart player, however, he doesn't possess much upside at all and had a hard time cracking the rotation for the Celtics all year.

Move 4: Sign Guerschon Yabusele and Ante Zizic

Both players were draft by the Celtics last year and stashed overseas, and both proceeded to impress overseas in their respective leagues. Both players are still very young and will look to make a quick impression on the team and the league early on in their careers.

Trade 1:
Boston Celtics receive: Kristaps Porzingis, Willy Hernangomez, and Lance Thomas

New York Knicks receive: Isaiah Thomas

No one is more desperate to return to prominence on an annual basis than the Knicks. Well this would be their way back up there. Picking up an all-star in Thomas, along with ridding themselves of L. Thomas' contract (hence, the inclusion of Hernangomez) would provide them with the talent they have been hoping to acquire for years now to pair with Anthony. Sacrificing a future first-round pick to a team like the Nets would potentially rid them of Courtney Lee's or Joakim Noah's contract, allowing them to pursue big free agent names either this year or next to pair alongside Anthony and Thomas.

Acquiring Porzingis would give the Celtics another potential future all-star to play alongside Fultz, hopefully for years to come. A stretch-four who can shoot, rebound and block shots would be more than enough for the team to be excited about for the future. Adding a solid future role player like Hernangomez wouldn't hurt either, while adding Thomas and his contract wouldn't stifle their future, as the two years remaining on his contract following this season would expire before most of the players on this team would be up for contract renewals.

Trade 2:
Boston Celtics receive: Zach LaVine

Minnesota Timberwolves receive: Jae Crowder

Another trade that would make perfect sense for both teams involved in the case of a Celtics' rebuild. Crowder would give Tom Thibodeau the veteran leader and hard-working, defensive presence he desperately desired in his first year as the Timberwolves coach. The fact that he is still young and on a very team-friendly contract would only make Thibodeau and the Timberwolves happier.

LaVine would provide the Celtics with an extremely athletic and young shooting guard who can attack the rim very well and knock down three pointers consistently, although his mid-range game needs some improvement. If necessary, he could also split point guard duties with Fultz.

Trade 3:
Boston Celtics receive: Aaron Gordon

Orlando Magic receive: Avery Bradley

The Magic are in desperate need of some consistency and stability. Enter Avery Bradley! His defense prowess and shooting ability would give the Magic another wing alongside Evan Fournier who can knock down shots while providing leadership in the locker room. More importantly, he would provide the Magic with some sense of direction for the future.

Although not a good shooter by any stretch of the imagination, Gordon is extremely athletic and has the potential to be a very good all-around player who can rebound, pass, and defend at an above average level, making him the perfect complementary player to play alongside shooters Fultz, LaVine, and Porzingis.

Trade 4:
Boston Celtics receive: Jahlil Okafor

Philadelphia 76ers receive: Terry Rozier and Los Angeles Clippers' 2019 first-round pick

Rozier showed a lot of growth in his second year as a back-up point guard for the Celtics, which earned him a consistent spot in the rotation throughout the Celtics' playoff run. Packaging him alongside a first-round pick would be more than the 76ers could ask for in exchange for Okafor, who does not possess much trade value at all.

Giving up these two assets for Okafor, who comes with a history of injuries and attitude problems, would definitely be a gamble for the Celtics. However, with so many assets readily available for consolidation, the risk would be worth for the Celtics to take. Okafor does not stretch the floor in any way, but the Celtics would have Porzingis to do that. Therefore, the post would be wide open for Okafor to use his strong offensive post skills to score whenever necessary. His rebounding and shot blocking abilities would be a welcomed addition as well.

Trade 5:
Boston Celtics receive: Jamal Murray, Juan Hernangomez, and Tyus Jones

Denver Nuggets receive: Al Horford and resigned Shabazz Muhammad

Minnesota Timberwolves receive: Kenneth Faried and Lance Thomas

The Nuggets have been looking to consolidate their assets into a star player for a few years now. This would be their chance to do so. Horford would not only provide them with a solid option to play alongside Nikola Jokic in the frontcourt, forming potentially the best passing frontcourt in the league, he would hopefully convince Danilo Gallinari to come back to Denver to make a run at the playoffs over the picking years. Muhammad would provide Denver with another solid wing to improve their chances at a solid playoff run.

A hard-working, gritty player like Faried would be exactly the type of player who could provide an energy boost off of Thibodeau's bench. Thomas' veteran presence would also help in making a push for the playoffs.

Combo guard Murray has the most upside out of the three players the Celtics are receiving in this deal, but each of the three men has potential to develop into a solid role player in the league, and hopefully more than a role player in Murray's case. Pairing Hernangomez with his brother in the frontcourt would also be fun to watch, if anything, for their family.

Trade 6:
Boston Celtics receive: Kelly Oubre and Sam Dekker

Washington Wizards receive: resigned Kelly Olynyk and Montrezi Harrell

Houston Rockets receive: Marcin Gortat

It looks like the Wizards and Gortat might be ready for a divorce this offseason, so replacing him with two younger centers who are both very solid players would be ideal for the Wizards this offseason. Losing Oubre would hurt, but he is replaceable since it's almost a virtual guarantee that Otto Porter Jr. is resigned by the Wizards.

The Rockets are all set on the offensive side of the basketball, but they can definitely use some toughness and stability in the middle. Forget has never been the best player on a basketball court, however, he rebounds the ball very well and is a tough defender who could add extra toughness to the Rockets' frontcourt.

Oubre and Dekker would simply add additional youth, athleticism, and potential to a team already full of each of those characteristics. Oubre us more potential than Dekker, and the Celtics would hope to watch him blossom into a very solid starter in the league.

The final depth chart for this team would look like this:

PG: Fultz/Murray/Jones
SG: LaVine/Smart/Dekker
SF: Gordon/Brown/Oubre
PF: Porzingis/Yabusele/J. Hernangomez
C: Okafor/Zizic/W. Hernangomez

The potential of this team would be through the roof! Again, I don't think this would ever happen nor do I think it would be the best course of action for the team to take, however, the team was the choose the rebuilding route, this would be the ideal way to go.


1.) 25 May 2017 22:10:09
The Knicks wouldn't trade Porzingis for IT. IT is on an expiring contract and can't defend at all. While there aren't a ton of guys on his level, there are a lot of players with similar skill sets and Porzingis's skill set is almost impossible to find and he's locked up for the foreseeable future.
The second isn't terrible, but I don't think it's worth the risk for the Celtics or the Timberwolves. One team would end up looking bad at the end of that trade.
3rd trade is bad for both teams. Bradley is close to free agency, the Magic have little hope of being a playoff team, and they just got burned on a win now move. Gordon is a guy who has the talent to become a star but it's still up in the air. If you're trading Bradley you want a sure thing and the magic are better off with high upside guys while trying to rebuild.
4th Not terrible, but maybe to much for okafor.
5th not enough for horford
6th Washington is getting fleeced.

2.) 25 May 2017 22:12:02
So you think that IT can get you Porzingis AND Hernangomez? LAC pick in Okafor trade? That pick looks like it's going to be top 5. Also, out of those 3 centers, Okafor would be 3rd in depth chart. Rest is pretty good if they want to rebuild, but Celtics would have to give much more assets in Porzingis trade so it makes all other trades pretty impossible.

3.) 26 May 2017 01:19:30
Only 2 current players return lmao hahahahahhahaha.

4.) 26 May 2017 19:40:52
Most of those trades are heavily skewed in Bostons favor. Part of the reason Boston hasn't traded for a star is cause they overvalue their assets.
