Celtics: Valenciunas, Melton and Winslow

Grizzlies: Smart, Theis, Thompson and Neismith

Celtics get a starting center in Valenciunas, and 2 strong defenders. Besides, Melton can steep into the starting lineup whenever Kemba rests or is injured. And we all how Danny loves Winslow and wanted to trade 4 draft picks to get him on draft night.

Smart and Theis are great fits next to Morant and JJJ, once he comes back. Thompson is a good backup and provides leadership and championship experience. Neismith can be a valuable player down the line, but it’s too soon to tell.

Boston wouldn't give up Smart in a package with those players coming back.

I wouldn’t be so sure about that. You’re looking at at least 2 valuable defenders to replace him, and Valenciunas is very good himself. Actually one of the most underrated centers in the league (if not the single most) .

I’m a Celtics fan and would love that trade for Boston.

Besides, even though Winslow is not that young, he still has untapped potential.

I don't think trade makes sense for either team. Boston has other options.

Cs get Drummond Love Toppin Bucks 1st Cavs 2nd
Knicks get Walker R. Williams Ojeleye Dotson Stevens Cook Dellavedova
Cavs get Payton Noah Ntilikina Rivers Knox Pinson-cut

I don't see Boston's big need for a center like that and while I like Winslow, he's always hurt.

What was Boston lacking last year during the playoffs? A big man!

I still think Vuc is their main choice this year but Jonas would do. I like this trade.

Jonas is not that good to trade Smart for.

And keep in mind, the biggest bright spot for Boston this year is the emergence of Robert Williams. They're not bringing someone in to cut into his minutes, especially when there's other positions of much greater need.
