It doesn't look like the Lakers pick is going to convey to the Celtics. Assuming one of Jackson, Bamba or Ayton (most likely Jackson or Bamba), falls to the 5-7 area of the draft should the Celtics package together the Kings pick with the Clippers or Memphis pick and possibly their own or one of their lesser young players to go out and get their center?

It seems like the last piece of the puzzle for their team and it's probably better to get them sooner rather than later. Obviously, Bamba on paper looks like the perfect fit. He's an ultra long athletic shot blocker and rebounder that looks to be developing range to the 3 point line. He still has a ton of upside, but Jackson might be getting over looked. He already has great range, can guard multiple positions and block shots.

He may not have the potential of Bamba or Ayton, but he looks like the type of player Brad Stevens could immediately turn into a plus player on both sides and possibly develop into an elite defender that creates huge match up problems on the offensive end for opposing centers.

I think both the Celtics and Grizzlies are going to regret not making a Tyreke Evans trade.
I think the Celtics' weak bench scoring will still hurt them and be shown in the playoffs and cost them.
And for the Grizzlies I think Evans will continue playing well and hurt their draft position and walk away in the offseason.

Did Boston mess up by not going out and getting another scorer? How much could a guy like Lou Williams or Evans have helped the Celtics. Outside of Irving, it just doesn't seem like they have anyone that can go out and consistently get their own shot.

Where's USA to come on here, and defend another team that isn't the Lakers because of great concern someone has got it all wrong about another team? Enjoy the CLE win, I doubt BOS is in any troubled waters, or has great concern about their future. Heyward is rehabbing, and will be back soon enough. He ought to be a good enough scorer that isn't on an expiring deal, won't cost a 1st, and will be with the team next season.

12 Feb 2018 17:13:15
Jorga, I agree that long term the Celtics are in a great position, but they need help this year with Brown, Tatum, and Rozier being solid offensive players but not guys that can carry an offense yet or even be 2nd option. They have something like 5 1sts in the next 2 years and only 2 or 3 roster spots. It's not like their own 1st, which wouldn't be an important piece in any trade for a super star, isn't extremely expendable given all of their youth.

12 Feb 2018 19:49:07
You said it all in your reply rkenne_16. We are in great position long term. Just cause we are going to have a late first this year doesn't mean its expendable. Danny has built this team up by making smart moves over the last few years. By not making a move it showed that he was satisfied in, as Philly likes to say, "Trusting the process". There is no need to speed that up. We will be able to use the draft picks we have to go out and get more players that will help us in the off season, and that won't be on expiring deals.

No player out there, in my eyes, was worth throwing away a 1st round pick to MAYBE help us reach the finals this year. The plan has and always will be, to build for sustainable success.

13 Feb 2018 04:39:13
MArcus Smart gives the team energy and gives a bit of X factor he’ll be back soon the next draft appears deep so keep them picks Golden State still another level.

Cavs best case scenarios in the buyout market

Best-sign brook Lopez and Tyreke Evans

Most likely-brook or Tyreke and Kendrick Perkins

Worst-Kendrick Perkins and Jacorey Williams

Agree15 Disagree2

12 Feb 2018 02:13:48
Don't see B. Lopez getting waived. Zubac stinks, Bryant is alright. Evans would be a redundant position in CLE. Guys are going to sit. Smith, Calderon, Osman with an Evans signing. Kendrick is a possibility. He's faster than Bogut.

11 Feb 2018 00:27:53
Lakers have 62 to spend next year.

If they can dump Deng that will give them 80.

If they stretch him they will have 73.

So either way Lakers can add 2 stars, quality player and have mle. Plus have ball Ingram kuzma Hart Ennis and there some one else to who young. If ball Ingram and Kuzma turn out to be actually stars or borderline stars like snubs they be hard to beat. If can't add stars just take on bad contracts with one year left and get picks and develop youth. In 2019 there Thompson, Leonard whiteside plus others. Thompson and whiteside would fit good with Ingram kuzma and ball.

Agree17 Disagree1

11 Feb 2018 01:59:55
Why would anyone trade a contract with 1 year left and give up a pick? Expiring contracts have value. Look at what the Cavs just turned a bunch of expiring contracts into.

11 Feb 2018 04:23:00
This different. It's beginning of season and teams need cap. So give up your pick and Lakers will eat that last year up.

10 Feb 2018 14:27:21
i think LeBron James is going to stay in cleveland

i don't see him leaving because the front office done great team

bringing young fresh legs players who move the ball faster defend these players and scores the ball also coach cut lebron james minutes and give him some rest

Agree8 Disagree15

It truly depends on how well the team does in the playoffs and fits together. If they lose in conference finals or earlier, I'm betting on him leaving. If they make the finals and can at least take a couple games from the Rockets or Warriors, I think he'll stay for at least 1 more year.

11 Feb 2018 00:32:47
I think he picks best opportunity to win.

Like say he can join Paul Harden Capella and ariza. Gordon and Anderson would have to go though.

Build a team in clippers or Lakers with George joining him.

Or to the wolves with Butler Wiggins and towns.

11 Feb 2018 13:28:11
I can't see the Clippers being on his short list. They would have to let their best player walk to even sign Lebron and there isn't any elite young talent on the roster. I think the most likely teams would be Houston, Cleveland, the Lakers, San Antonio, Philly, Minnesota, New York, Miami, Portland, Pheonix, and Toronto in that order. The top 5 probably have a 99.99 percent chance of landing him and the top 3 probably have a 95 percent chance of landing him.

15 Feb 2018 08:27:45
I think if james plays with a player like Paul, Harden or Westbrook he gone have to turn more into a scorer to be more effective. I think with James being a ball handler Bradley with his ability to play defense be better option at point guard. Especially with George at the two. Ingram and James be forwards.

09 Feb 2018 20:32:22
What's the biggest surprise of the deadline?

Personally, I think it's how little the Jazz ended up with for Hood, but a 2nd for Elfrid Peyton, who's been solid this year seems pretty surprising. I also expected Boston to make atleast a minor deal.

Agree20 Disagree1

10 Feb 2018 16:03:15
can tyson chandler get a buyout phx suns or brook lopez from lakers because cavs needed to sign a big man centers.

10 Feb 2018 20:28:32
1. Hood
2. Mudiay (DEN payed a 2nd)
3. E. Peyton.

11 Feb 2018 00:49:45
Dawg, I've seen those 2 as potential buyouts and Brandon Wright. They all would be solid additions. I think Wright would be the most likely of the 3 though. The Lakers have no reason to intentionally tank. So buying out Lopez might be kind of pointless. Chandler has 2 years left on his contract, which makes it more difficult given the money left.

09 Feb 2018 20:29:27
cavs needed to sign a big man

Agree19 Disagree1

09 Feb 2018 16:42:15
Im very sad that they trade Wade.. How I wish also, they kept Crowder..

And Top 2 guys I wanted to be traded are still wearing Cavs uniform.. JR and TT.. SMH..

If only Kyrie wasnt traded, Wade, Rose, Frye and RJ will be still wearing the Cavs uniform with LeBron..

Agree2 Disagree21

09 Feb 2018 18:05:23
Crowder hasn't been the player he was last year and has had 50 games to get acclimated. It's a loss since he could guard players that no one else on the roster could, but it's extremely questionable if he wouldn't have ever fit.

Wade is a loss as he's one of the few Cavs who played defense consistently, but outside of him the Cavs really
ended up with better younger players that fit the offense better and are capable of playing defense.

If Lebron leaves, the Cavs are in a decent position to rebuild and if Lebron stays, the Cavs have a ton of different ways to improve the roster even more given the Brooklyn pick, the younger talent, and George's contract which is huge and essentially expiring since the last year only has 1 million guaranteed.

09 Feb 2018 03:20:29
LeBron James is leaving cavs this summer

Agree26 Disagree1

09 Feb 2018 05:09:35
Hopefully to 76ers or Spurs.

09 Feb 2018 11:15:02

09 Feb 2018 15:13:53
I don't think the moves that the Cavs made make it more likely he leaves. The team is better, younger and has more upside. The lineup is no longer a whose who of players that will be out of the league in the next 3 years. He probably has more reason to stay today than yesterday. Not saying he's staying, but the odds may have gotten better.

09 Feb 2018 19:38:22
The team is definitely better but I think his relationship with ownership and management is just beyond repair at this point.

09 Feb 2018 20:54:16
he might stay if cavs win champion.
