Boston trades Rozier

Suns trade Oubre and 2021 2nd rd. pick (from Nets via Suns)


1.) 19 Dec 2018 18:32:50
Boston could get more. Oubre? You really want to send Hayward or brown to the bench permanently.

2.) 20 Dec 2018 01:26:24
He's 6'7, has a 7'2 wingspan and when they trade Brown next year (AD) and Morris hits FA he'll be quite useful. They'll be needing a defensive minded player as they'll be short on the wing. Sounds crazy but I think it'll be worth the gamble. Plus he'll be cheaper than Morris and also Rozier.

Boston- Smart, Brown, 1st+2nd rd. pic

Washington- Beal.


1.) 24 Nov 2018 03:52:02
Wiz are asking a high price for him, if that's a good 1st, it's a competitive trade.

2.) 24 Nov 2018 14:26:00
As far as value goes, it's a pretty even trade. I'm not sure if it works out for Beal or for Boston though. Boston is losing two of the few guys that don't have to be ball dominant for another guy who wants the ball in his hands. I feel like Beal would run into the same issues with Kyrie that made it a tough relationship with Wall in Washington.

For Washington, if Wall is physically able to be himself, this could work out well. Sliding Smart and Brown in next to another Morris teammate would give them a lot of toughness. Brown is much better than he's shown this season, and this should help him blossom as an offensive focus. Smart will do Smart things wherever he is.

Rockets making moves to accommodate Melo by trading Chinanu Onuaku and cash to the Mav's for 2nd rd. swap to open up a roster spot.


1.) 02 Aug 2018 05:26:27
Melo to Houston is all but a done deal. Think he'll start?

2.) 02 Aug 2018 11:36:45
BTEC -- Anthony has made two things clear:
1. He will cause trouble if he doesn't start.
2. He plans to return to his old style of play -- hold the ball for a good portion of the shot clock, then try to create his own shot.
Toss in the usual matador defense where he doesn't bother getting past halfcourt some of the time, and that's a recipe for disaster for Houston. It looks like a step back for the team --stiff price to pay just to give Harden and Paul a buddy they can club with.

3.) 02 Aug 2018 13:32:58
I think Houston will see how starting will go, but then things will turn south and the marriage will sour and they'll trade/ release him.

4.) 02 Aug 2018 13:55:33
Welcome back Super, glad to see you on the Melo hate tour again.

Did Melo accidentally spill his Green beer on you at a St. Paddy’s day party in Boston once? Trying to figure out your blinding and enduring hate for the man.

5.) 02 Aug 2018 14:52:45
I actually agree with Super on this one. Melo has been a great scorer in the past, but he's no longer that guy. The unfortunate thing is he can't come to grips with it. If he ever could wrap his head around it, he still has the physical ability to be a contributor on a championship team, and if anyone can, Paul and Harden should be able to make him realize it. if not, he will be dumped. Those two aren't going to settle for moving backward at this point, especially where Paul is in his career.

6.) 02 Aug 2018 16:06:09
Waiving a minimum contract v. s. 25+ mil with a no trade clause is significantly easier with less debate.

Boston trades Brown, Nader, Larkin and Boston's 2019 1st rd. pick

Wolves trade Butler and A Jefferson


1.) 05 Jul 2018 11:03:55
Doubt the Celtics could take on that much salary at this point without making other moves first. Plus, Larkin is a free agent. Other than that, though, it's not far off.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 12:25:25
Three things wrong with this one:

1) Jefferson is not a Wolf

2) Larkin in an FA

3) Take those two out and the salaries still don’t work. Butler is at $21M, Brown and Nader are $7M. C’s don’t have $14M to spend against the cap.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 15:06:25
Your right Tri. I meant Amile but hit the l after the A instead of the .

But think that a couple of players and Brown plus the pick may get him.

Of course some other trades would have to be made to free up some space, like a S&T with Smart for future picks.

But if the rumors are true about Kyrie and Jimmy then the C's would have to explore that Idea. That would for sure get the C's to the finals.


4.) 05 Jul 2018 15:30:12
Wait! I didn't hit the l or the . And yes A Jefferson does play for the Wolves and C's could sign Larkin and then wait to make the trade or they could trow Yabusele in the deal

Trade does work also according to trade machine.

C's already said they would go over luxury tax for a title.



28 Jun 2018 02:38:19
Celtics trade Irving, Brown, Nader, 2019 C's 1st rd. pick, 2019 LAC 1st rd. pick..

Wolves trade KAT, Teague, Tyus jones


1.) 28 Jun 2018 04:39:29
Celts would not dismantle their squad in this way. It's way too many important pieces. The baynes re-signing report recently probably wouldn't be there if they were planning on something like this.

2.) 28 Jun 2018 05:07:52
Not knowing what Kyrie is going to do is a big? mark. They dismantled their squad last season and look how they ended up.

I have faith that whatever squad they have Brad Stevens will steer them to the Conference Finals again and then the Championship Finals.
Teague and Kat are just as good as Irving and Baynes/ Theis/ Williams.

Teague/ Rozier
Tatum/ Smart
Hayward/ Morris
Horford/ Theis
KAT/ Baynes.

3.) 28 Jun 2018 05:54:17
@billj there was a long interview listed today with Stevens. Irving has no plans on going anywhere as of yet. Neither did Leonard this time last year so things can change but Irving thinking about leaving is hype.

4.) 28 Jun 2018 06:09:59
I hear ya Btec, just my opinion. Then I hope they pick up Dwightmare for the year, he's worth the headache if a Championship is obtainable.

5.) 28 Jun 2018 06:25:25
I honestly don't see their need for a center. Kyrie and Hayward and Theiss if all are healthy is a significant roster improvement. Without, they handled the arguably best center in the league pretty well. (embid) . Drafted williams too.

6.) 30 Jun 2018 08:15:47
Bad for both teams.

Now that AD wants out it will be interesting to see if he is dealt this season.

If Lakers can't trade for him then I think NOLA will wait for the off season and do a deal with Boston.

Blake Griffin wants out also. Do you think the Lakers will go after him if they can't get Davis?


1.) 28 Jan 2019 21:58:10
If they don’t get AD, I think they’ll see what they can do with their cap space this summer rather than making a move before free agency.



15 Jan 2019 16:56:05
The C's are starting to fall apart at the seams.

I think the chance of trading Kyrie is much greater now than it was 2 months ago.

What deals do you think Boston would do at this point?


1.) 15 Jan 2019 21:34:24
The Celtics aren't really in much of a position as far as netting any serious assets. Unfortunately for them, their biggest trade piece is tatum and mayyyyybe brown. Otherwise, its over paid players, expiring contracts, or draft picks that seemed great and clearly aren't anymore. They don't even have much cap flexibility after this year anyways. Celtics future has taken quite a turn this season. Very odd.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 23:34:16
Trade Kyrie to knicks for Kanter, Frank Nik
Sign Rozier 5 year 75m
Put a package together for Beal will have to take Mahinmi with him = brown, Hayward, Yabusele + 2 first round picks
Boston’s team
Rozier, Wannamaker, Frank Nik
Beal, smart
Tatum Morris
Horford, Kanter, Williams
Baynes, Theis, (Mahinmi)
Trade Mahinmi and couple of second rounders to a tanking team with salary cap room.

3.) 16 Jan 2019 00:49:49
Heyward and a pick to memphis for Gasol. Celts get better he might resign cheap and they still have enough to get AD in summer.

4.) 16 Jan 2019 00:58:44
AD isn’t coming to Boston unfortunately.

5.) 16 Jan 2019 20:50:48
Given Memphis experience with good, not great, wings that get overpaid and then are injured and seem like a shell of their prior self. my assumption is some not great pick isn't going to woo them into giving up the franchises most lived player, for someone who is less productive, costs a lot more and has more years. just saying. besides that though, seems great!



10 Jan 2019 04:30:12
R. J. Hunter returns to the Celtics (avg 22 ppg in G-league. Could this mean that someone is going to exit?

Could Rozier be traded, or someone else be released?


1.) 10 Jan 2019 05:56:57
Quite a few teams are looking to make deals. The celtics especially. Wizards too. The Jazz and Pelicans are in trouble too.

2.) 10 Jan 2019 12:24:17
I don't think Rozier will be traded unless they can get another allstar player in return. Rozier is a backup plan for Kyrie in freeagency.

Its either they use their multiple picks to get a top 5 draft players or use them to get another allstar.

3.) 10 Jan 2019 13:31:39
He's not a terrible backup plan, but I think this move is more for organizational shooting depth. I think Terry will only be moved if it's for a big time piece coming back, or if he's not planning on returning (and Boston wouldn't want to match money) .

4.) 10 Jan 2019 15:07:34
Could Kyrie being going to knicks for Porzingis?

5.) 10 Jan 2019 16:49:33
C's wouldn't make a Kyrie for Zinger trade. Guy is always hurt and always will be.

6.) 10 Jan 2019 19:20:47
Billj- kyrie hurt since being a Celtic too.

7.) 10 Jan 2019 21:17:38
Minus the ACL, KP played like 80-85% of the teams games. How is that always hurt?

8.) 11 Jan 2019 06:17:00
1st year he played 87.8%.
2nd year he played 80.5%
3rd year he played 58.5%
4th year he played 0.0%
So leading up to the ACL he played in 75.6%

4yrs., 186 games, he played 56.7%. You do the math.

9.) 11 Jan 2019 07:08:33
Porzingis is having one big injury. Those statistics are influenced by one big outlyer.

I believe Porzingis is young enough to recover from that ACL injury.

I think the Celtics believe they can win this year, so they won't do this. But personaly, i prefer Porzingis over Irving (i don't trust a guy that think the world is flat :-) )

10.) 11 Jan 2019 07:37:17
I just don't think he ever be same and ny should dump him and all long contracts.

11.) 11 Jan 2019 20:43:58
No team is going to give much for KP. His best bet is to stay with the Knicks, sign an extension with a injury clause and hope that he recovers. But my opinion is that he'll always be an accident waiting to happen. His QO has dropped to 4.5m from 7.5m.

12.) 12 Jan 2019 16:27:34
Billj. He has 58% that year because of the ACL. Was that a joke? He played over 87% of the games prior to the injury. Thus he played about 85% of the games outside an ACL. I can’t tell if you were kidding or just dumb on that lol. Outside the ACL he is among the least injury prone big men. You really are a fool. Especially because you are trying to argue one of the lesser injury prone big men is more injury prone than one of the most injury prone guards.

Knicks would never make that trade. Kyrie is actually a constant injury waiting to happen.

13.) 12 Jan 2019 16:28:03
Facts don’t lie billj. Homer fans do 😉.

14.) 12 Jan 2019 19:48:55
Progressively going down hill. Kepp dreaming burger.

15.) 13 Jan 2019 21:41:34
Don’t really understand what that even relates to. Porzingis. 85% played with exception to ACL. Yet you say that’s a downward slide? Care to explain or just accept you clearly didn’t get the math right?

16.) 13 Jan 2019 21:43:30
Oh wait. I got it. It was your prediction based off nothing. Just like you trying to claim Irving isn’t an injury risk. How’d he do in the playoffs last year? Or those season when he played over 70 games? Oh well. I’m sure he’ll start being non injury prone soon enough.

17.) 13 Jan 2019 21:50:56
Oh nevermind bill. I read your past posts. No point in discussing with someone that thinks brown gets An all nba player in butler. Go on homer lol

Say what you want about my old handle based on my lunch (should I show equal maturity with a you’re glue comeback? ) fact is at least I don’t do the homer route. But hey. I’m sure in your eyes Hayward will be amazing!



17 Dec 2018 23:03:37
What's the 76er's going to do with Fultz?

There's no way anyone is going to a 1st rd. pick for him, unless they get 1st rd. back or.

People can say all they want about Ainge, but let me tell ya, he was a freaking genius making that deal. He didn't screw Philly, Philly screwed themselves.


1.) 17 Dec 2018 23:32:22
Dallas made a good move for Doncic too, in reverse fashion, so to speak. Especially of they make the playoffs.

2.) 18 Dec 2018 00:04:47
I think Terrance ross for fultz is perfect. If he works out they sign him if not he is gone. Fultz gets a fresh start.



10 Dec 2018 15:05:20
With Whiteside missing a 3rd game (birth of his child), do you guys think because of him leaving the bench a couple games ago they are trying to find a trade partner?

What team would benefit the most by trading for him and what player (s) would be involved?


1.) 10 Dec 2018 15:48:21
At this point Whiteside would be hard to give away.

The Sixers might try to work something out where they offload Fultz and another asset, then bring on Whiteside in case Embiid's feet swell up like a Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade balloon.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 15:59:24
I don't know if Spoelstra is messing with him or what the deal is but they need to part ways. They wouldn't trade him or didn't like the offers or both last summer. He was definitely available.

Mirotic, Hill
Whiteside, 2nd.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 18:23:34
He's been on the block for a while hasn't he?

4.) 10 Dec 2018 22:36:39
Miami signed him then he stopped being good. can't shoot from line to finish games. His defense isn't good.

Spurs trade doesn't work.
Boston wouldn't do that trade, maybe a TD move if the need is there.
Don't think Portland would do it either.

If there is no sure commitment from AD as well as KI Than I can see DA paying his young core and going after the likes of an Andre Drummond or KAT.

Getting rid of Hayward is on the top of Boston's list, to include him and a few 1st rd. picks in any deal will be a +.

Yeah, you can't trade for 2 players that signed rookie contract extensions in a 1 year span.

#'s have to match up, so a Hayward deal or a Irving deal would have to happen. And rk is right, if AD were to be traded NOLA would not want Haywards 2 yr. contract in a rebuilding process. Irving would be of some interest for the remainder of the season though.

James wanted out of Miami, Riley pleaded with him to stay and win more titles.

If Lakers don't land AD someone's head should role, and not Walton's.

I hope he crashes and burns in LA LA land.
