Celtics two trades that must be made

Trade 1: "TRADING DOWN FOR TEAM NEEDS"

Celtics trade: #3 Brooklyn pick, 2018 Boston 1st rounder, 2019 Memphis 1st, 2020 boston 1st (top 20 protected) Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, #45 Memphis pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder, 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder, 2020 Miami 2nd rounder

Celtics receive: Willie Cauley-Stein, #6 Pelicans pick, and Alonzo Gee (cut)


Sactown trades: Willie Cauley-Stein, #8 Own pick, and Ben Mclemore

Sactown receives #3 Brooklyn pick, 2018 Boston 1st round pick, 2019 Memphis 1st, 2020 boston 1st (top 20 protected) Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder


New Orleans trades: #6 Own pick, Alonzo Gee

New Orleans receives:#8 Sactown pick, Ben Mclemore, #45 Memphis pick, 2020 Miami 2nd rounder

The Why? :

New Orleans: The Pelicans are able to trade down and pick two spots later along with a young SG with upside in Mclemore that can replace Eric Gordon. They can select Jakob Poeltl giving them a true center

Sactown: They would miss out on Kris Dunn staying at #8 but a strong move to move up to #3 gives them a player they want. They do have to give up some value WCS and Mclemore, but the Kings aren't impressed with Mclemore and were rumored to be shopping him at the deadline last year.

Boston: Boston trades down from #3 to #6 and is able to pick up WCS a defensive C which the C's need desperately, and a high potential SF in Brown.

Trade #2: "TRADING UP FOR NEEDS"

Boston trades: #16 Dallas pick and #23 Own pick, and #51 Miami pick

Utah trades:#12

The Why?
Utah: Trades down to pick up extra draft picks to continue to build team.

Boston: The C's move up to draft Denzel Valentine a need at SG.

Final draft pick #31 (3 possibilities) 1.Thon Maker 2.Zhou QI 3.Anti ZIzic Either as draft and stash or Developing big men.

Team after the draft:

PG: Thomas-Smart-Rozier
SG: Bradley-Valentine-Young
SF: Crowder-Brown
PF: Johnson-Jerebko-Mickey
C: WCS-Olynyk (#31 pick: see above)

Free agents to be
SG-Turner
C-Zeller and Sullinger.

24 May 2016 19:15:48
I love WCS coming here, thought he was the perfect fit. But we still need scoring and play making with the roster you provided. For me I think there is no way we let Turner go, he is our best play maker. And then we need to get another scorer. As you probably saw in the playoffs, once Atlanta locked up on Thomas we had no one else who could score. That is the first move we need to address this offseason, then we look for a shot blocking center.

24 May 2016 20:21:55
Wait am I reading this right? (I am seriously asking)

Celtics are giving up all these assets for WCS and the possibility of drafting Valentine? Why?

24 May 2016 21:02:43
Valentine is Turner just a better shooter, but a lesser defender.

24 May 2016 05:14:12
If the Cavs don't win the championship changes will happen, personally we all know Lebron runs the show in Cleveland and I'm starting to think that may be the problem. If it were ever possible I would consider a deal with the Clippers.

Lebron, Thompson and shump as well for Griffin, Jordan and Reddick.

Cavs I think would never do this but a fresh start and a young core with 4 all star caliber players and a great shooter. They won't trade Lebron but he controls the game to much and Kyrie and Love I feel isn't as productive as they could be because of it. Without Lebron the game would be in Kyries hands but he creates openings and he can learn to distrubute better if he was the main ball handler. With two great offense options in Love at PF and Griffin at SF. Yes I did say Griffin at SF he's size could be an advantage but problem as well but if a quick guard or forward gets by then D Jordan would be right there commanding the paint. Also Reddick would be there to help spread the floor and he fits well with those 4.

Why Clippers possibly do this. Jordan and Griffin are great young players but it hasn't worked in LA either and they need a change. Remember Lebrons super friends plan? Well this could be the start of it. Paul and Lebron would give the clippers a chemistry and a super duo which could become a trio and more. Also TT and shump are young defensive pieces to add to the youth or lack there of for the Clippers. Paul and Lebron would attract some great talent along with them as well. Overall I know this is more of fantasy but value wise so believe it's fair and can be beneficial for both teams.

24 May 2016 05:23:24
I'm thinking they trade Kyrie for CP3, Love for Carmelo and sign Wade to for the super team they all want.

24 May 2016 06:00:05
First off cavs knew exactly what they were getting themselves into with Lebron. It's the price of business, if you want the top player in the league to come to your team you need to have some concessions. As you concede in the opening sentence Lebron runs the show in Cleveland. A trade like this never happens since if Lebron wants to go make his super team there is nothing stopping him from leaving on his own in FA without the team he's going to giving up valuable assets (Teams like Clippers would need to make some moves to free up salary but it wouldn't be anything close to giving up Griffin Jordan and Reddick and even if they did they would get comparable value in return on cheaper contracts. )

I don't think Cleveland is better off without Lebron especially if your solution is to bring in Blake Griffin to play the 3. If Cleveland doesn't win the championship there will be changes but it won't be Lebron moving unless he wants to move and if that's the case he does so in FA. Cleveland would likely prefer moving Irving to bring Paul to Cleveland than to trade Lebron. I don't see a scenario where having Lebron on the team doesn't give them the best opportunity to win a championship and that is their only goal at this point.

24 May 2016 14:47:43
I agree that LeBron would rather draw CP3, Melo and D-Wade into Cleveland, but failing that, he won't stay whether they win or not. He's cryptically said many times that Cleveland may not be his last stop, and bringing A title home (not many, just one) is his ultimate goal. No 7 like he promised in Miami, one.

I can't stand him, and the organization would be better off if either he gets what he wants this offseason or he leaves. Having some semblance of this same team next year will show the world the worst of LeBron.

24 May 2016 14:56:17
Trading LeBron? Unless Kawahi, Curry or Durant are in the conversation I stop reading.

Even then, the PR nightmare for that city would be unbelievable.

24 May 2016 18:35:43
If you didn't realize I am a Cleveland fan. I am also a Lebron fan and grew up watching him in high school and followed him his whole career. With that being said I also supported Lebron because he was what's best for Cleveland but now that he is past his prime and isn't considered the best player in the NBA as much anymore, I don't think he could win the championship next year with this team even if they pull it off this year. He doesn't have the abilities to control the game as much like he used to because hit shooting hasn't improved. With that being said he still is top 3 player in the league and his trade value is highest now while he is still in the low 30s so the Cavs could get the most now. If it was a mutual split then it would work and PR wouldn't be as bad but even I know this won't happen but what's best for Cleveland long term and chances to win a championship would to make a deal like I said above with 4 all stars in the young 20s who could build as a core. Basketball is a team sport and I firmly believe the team is always better than one.

24 May 2016 20:25:31
Superstars win in this league. Proof?


Since 1982, there have been only 5 times where: Magic, MJ, Duncan, Kobe, or LeBron weren't in the finals. And two of those 5 were the years Jordan played baseball. You don't trade superstars.

23 May 2016 02:28:51
Suns get Thompson Calderon-exp O'Quinn
Cavs get Lopez Derrick-Will-ext. 4yr 36mil

23 May 2016 05:27:29
Suns laugh.

23 May 2016 13:45:08
Bledsoe value is always now in question with his his knee issues 3 injuries since college. Len is the future. O'Quinn contract is very valuable. Thompson healthy younger and more importantly over Chandler won't take minutes away from Len.

22 May 2016 18:02:14
The Celtics falling out of the top 3 hurt their chances at a superstar whether by trade or draft. Sitting at 3 the Celtics have quite a few options. In reality everyone knows Simmons and Ingram are going 1 and 2. Due to that fact the Celtics have "the number 1 pick" for the remainder of the draft. I believe in building through the draft and growing a young, yet high potential team. I propose trading down from 3 and trading up from 16 and drafting NBA ready players that can help. this team now and in the future. Here me out.

Trade 1: "TRADING DOWN FOR TEAM NEEDS"

Celtics trade: #3 Brooklyn pick, 2018 Boston 1st rounder, Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, #45 Memphis pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder, 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder, 2020 Miami 2nd rounder

Celtics receive: Willie Cauley-Stein, #6 Pelicans pick, and Alonzo Gee (cut)


Sactown trades: Willie Cauley-Stein, #8 Own pick, and Ben Mclemore

Sactown receives #3 Brooklyn pick, 2018 Boston 1st round pick, Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder


New Orleans trades: #6 Own pick, Alonzo Gee

New Orleans receives:#8 Sactown pick, Ben Mclemore, #45 Memphis pick, 2020 Miami 2nd rounder

The Why? :

New Orleans: The Pelicans are able to trade down and give up a backup SF in Gee and receive a pick two spots later along with a young SG with upside in Mclemore that can replace Eric Gordon, along with extra draft selections. They can select Jakob Poeltl giving them a true center allowing Davis to play PF. They get great value by trading down just two spots.

Sactown: They would miss out on Kris Dunn staying at #8 but a strong move to move up to #3 gives them a player they want. They do have to give up some value WCS and Mclemore, but the Kings aren't impressed with Mclemore and were rumored to be shopping him at the deadline last year. WCS is the only real value i see them pausing on before this trade. Although after Danny sweetens the pot by adding the 2018 Boston 1st rounder, Kings can't say no. They also pick up Hunter a SG project along with more draft selections. Overall they get #3 and good value in return.

Boston: Boston trades down from #3 to #6 and is able to pick up WCS a defensive C which the C's need desperately. They are able to cash in some of the numerous 2nd rounders they have. Giving up the 2018 1st sounds like a lot to give up but in two years i see the Celtics as a contender and that pick at worst will be in the 22-30 range. With the #6 pick the Celtics draft Jaylen Brown. He is perfect for our SF position behind Crowder and he has All Star potential . I project him as a taller more athletic Marcus Smart. I like to imagine Smart, Bradley, Brown, Crowder, WCS, all on the court at the same time, granted we wouldn't score but neither would the opposing team. Overall the C's get a need at both SF and the rim protecting Center they always needed without giving up the higher priced assets.


Trade #2: "TRADING UP FOR NEEDS"

Boston trades: #16 Dallas pick and #23 Own pick, and #51 Miami pick

Boson receives: #12


Utah trades:#12

Utah receives:#16 Dallas pick, #23 Own pick, and # 51 Miami pick

The Why? :

Utah: Trades down to pick up extra draft picks to continue to build team.

Boston: The C's move up to draft Denzel Valentine a need at SG. He plays almost identical to Evan Turner with the main trade off of Valentine being a better shooter but a worse defender. The Celtics option for a younger, cheaper, better shooting option, as they can now let Evan Turner go in free agency and not have to pay upwards of 10 million a year. The one variant in all of this is that Valentine could be available at #16. I just can't see that happening but it is a possibility.


Final draft pick #31 (3 possibilities) 1.Thon Maker 2.Zhou QI 3.Anti ZIzic Either as draft and stash or Developing big men.

Team after the draft:

PG: Thomas-Smart-Rozier
SG: Bradley-Valentine-Young
SF: Crowder-Brown
PF: Johnson-Jerebko-Mickey
C: WCS-Olynyk (#31 pick: see above)

Free agents to be
SG-Turner
C's Zeller and Sullinger

Celtics are in prime position to attack free agency. With no Glaring needs (maybe PF) and still with numerous assets the Celtics can do whatever Danny wants. This team is better than last year and has amazing potential for this year and definitely the future. This is the best smartest option for the Celtics this upcoming draft. Still armed with all the future Nets picks the Celtics can stay the course and develop into a powerhouse or flip any of these prospects and make a power move.

22 May 2016 18:27:43
Sorry I know it's long.

23 May 2016 00:42:23
You don't really expect people to read that novel right?

23 May 2016 01:32:23
Kings say no. WCS is worth more or equal to three this year IMHO. Two would be different. Sac 8 pick is worth more than 2018 Boston 1st round pick, Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder. McLemore is better than nothing. Sorry pass.

23 May 2016 14:47:49
Pels would pounce at that deal.

Celtics-76ers-Grizzlies

Celtics get Marc Gasol
Celtics give: Marcus Smart, #16 pick, #35 pick, Cavs 2017 2nd rd pick, and Grizzlies 2019 1st rd pick

76ers get Marcus Smart, #16 pick
76ers give: Jahlil Okafor

Grizzlies get Jahlil Okafor, #35 pick, Cavs 2017 2nd rd pick, and own 2019 1st rd pick back
Grizzlies give: Marc Gasol.

20 May 2016 04:51:40
Okafor is worth a lot more than that.

20 May 2016 04:57:43
Y'all undervalue Smart and overvalue Okafor. Okafor is not a modern or future day center because he can't shoot or play defense or block shots. I know he is still young and has room to improve but until then, this is his value.
Smart is still just 22 years old and he could bring toughness to the 76ers and he could thrive as a starter with plenty of minutes there.

20 May 2016 05:03:51
Haven't seen any Gasol trades but if Conley leaves it would be mutually beneficial for them to deal him. I don't think they trade him before draft unless Conley indicates there is 0% chance of him returning.

20 May 2016 11:52:21
I always like when the comments are so strong about what one 20 year old apparently can't do and will never do but projects what another 20 year projects to bring.

20 May 2016 13:50:59
Phillys say hell no. Okafor is vastly better then smart.

Phili/ Cleveland/ Chicago



Phili: Jimmy Butler, Kyrie Irving

Cleveland: Nerlens Noel, #1 pick from Phili, #24 from Phili, Avery Bradley, Rovert Covington

Chicago: Jahlil Okafor, #3 pick from Boston, #26 pick from Phili

Boston: Kevin Love, Nik Stauskas.

18 May 2016 20:36:17
Hate the trade for Cleveland. They'd never break up their contender especially if they aren't getting ready to contribute pieces in return. If Cleveland pulls this trade you're basically guaranteeing that Lebron bolts in free agency.

Don't think it makes sense from a value perspective either. Considering the return Jimmy Butler is getting the Cavs aren't getting much more for both Love and Irving even though Irving > Butler and Love isn't far off. Celtics I think get relatively fair value but Philly is pulling a heist.

18 May 2016 14:25:35
Phili/ Cleveland/ Chicago



Phili: Jimmy Butler, Kyrie Irving

Cleveland: Nerlens Noel, #3 pick from Boston, #24 and #26 pick from Phili, Rovert Covington

Chicago: Jahlil Okafor, #1 pick from Phili, Avery Bradley

Boston: Kevin Love, Nik Stauskas.

18 May 2016 15:14:00
I don't think Lebron wants draft pics for Irving and Love.

18 May 2016 16:10:48
I don't think that Cleveland is getting enough back. They are trading 2 all-star players.

18 May 2016 16:10:56
send braley to cavs and 24th to bulls.

18 May 2016 16:38:03
Cavs defs don't do this and if they did the will get number 1 not Chicago.

18 May 2016 19:10:46
@Gasupo Lebron doesn't get along with Kyrie, and Love is worth more than he plays. Getting Nerlens Noel is far from a downside, and they can also select Ben Simmons, who draws Lebron comparisons.

18 May 2016 09:09:18
Cavs-Celtics-Knicks

Cavs gets: Anthony

Celtics gets: Love, Lopez, Calderon

Knicks gets: 3rd pick from Celitcs (via BKN), Johnson (Unguarteed), Jerebko (Unguarteed)

Cavs gets LeBrons friend Melo and can play him as a stretch four. They upgrade from Love and gives Melo a chance to get a ring.

Celitcs won't get Simmons or Ingram and trade the pick for a star in Love, a defensive center that they have lacked and take on the final year of Calderons contract.

Knicks free up cap space and can pick a player they can build around together with Porzingis. They cut both Johnson and Jerebko and chase Whiteside and Conley in free agency.

18 May 2016 04:17:21
Boston offseason
sign derozan max offer
sign whiteside max offer
Draft hield with # 3
Trade smart, crowder, jerebko, hunter, rozier plus brooklyn 2018, dallas pick, boston pick, Memphis 2019
for Chicago's butler

thomas/ hield
derozan/ bradley
butler/ turner
Johnson/ olynyk
whiteside/ mickey

scratch derozan if durant for some reason decides he wants to come over. Not the greatest team for sure, not close to banner 18 but will take some pressure off of Isaiah and can give Cleveland a run for their money I think.

any ideas for big men btw? Free agents? Maybe Ezeli as well.

18 May 2016 05:12:41
Not crazy about drafting Hield although I guess he's more ready to contribute than other prospects, although Dunn may be another good option especially as a backup pg (personally I like Murray at 3). I'd see if Pacers will bite with a similar offer for George (maybe incorporate 3rd pick) also. I guess while your at it due your due diligence and check-in with Kings on Cousins (he could co-exist even with whiteside although I don't think that's ideal) .

As far as big men I think retaining Sullinger is something to explore depending on the cost. At the 4 I also like terence jones and Leur who both are relatively young athletic and can stretch the floor and I think undervalued. At center Ezeli is an option. I also like Mahinmi who put together solid season in Indy. Mozgov may be able to be stolen after a quite year as well.

18 May 2016 05:36:24
hield is a sg bro.

18 May 2016 17:53:21
Willy I know he's a sg. He will be able to play both man.

Don't want sullinger. Not worth the price. If we can grab george I would do it. George + whiteside will be enough to get Durant I think.

17 May 2016 22:02:46
Build the next Mavs contender.

It looks like Mavs should be able to sign Howard or Whiteside. This is what they need. Both want money but both want to win!

I learned Leuer is available! He is good alrounder on both sides of the floor. He can join a contender and maybe he can develop a starting role when Dirk retires in two years.

O. J. Mayo works in Dallas. It makes no sense for me to see him at Bucks. He do not have the Starters role and they will not grant him that amount of salary he had. So FA Mayo to Mavs would fit well for everybody.

Sign FA Howard (Whiteside) 4y / 100m

Sign FA Leuer 1+1y / 11m

Sign FA Mayo 1+1y / 11m

Trade with Kings:
-Evans
Mavs get:
-Caron Butler

Zaza need to go to an athletic team! Maybe he can hire at Cleveland? Let Villa and Lee go as well and resign the others!

Howard, Mejri, McGee
Nowitzki, Leuer, Powell
Parsons, Anderson, Butler
Wes, Mayo, Harris
DWil, Barea, Felton.

17 May 2016 22:24:04
Decent but I think Leur will get a 3yr deal and Mayo will get something around 2yr 12m.

17 May 2016 23:46:03
It's not bad. These moves may make them a playoff team but I don't think it really makes them a contender either now or in the future. I think Leur is a good dark horse player and under rated but I don't think he comes close to stepping in for DIrk ever.

Mavericks aren't in a good place after the Rondo disaster and then the DeAndre Jordan fiasco. I think they need a youth movement and need to try and get some draft picks but Cuban won't even consider that while Dirk is still playing.

even the suns aren't dumb enough to make that trade.

17 May 2016 15:18:38
Philly is giving up way too little and Suns giving up way too much. Philly giving up just their top pick for Booker who has already shown flashes of greatness and is younger than a lot of will be rookies AND Bledsoe who is top 10 pg still relatively young and signed for a few years on manageable contract AND their draft pick this year. All this for Kevin Love I don't see Suns entertaining this.

Suns gave up the laker pick for just Brandon knight only last year so that gives you an idea of value.

17 May 2016 18:16:16
Love is a top five pf. Davis, LA griffin, love, and green who naturally play of are the best in my opinion, booker and bledsoe plus pic equal love. But the suns don't need love so they pass.

Lakers can just sign derozan and Whiteside without giving up randle.

16 May 2016 15:08:31
In this post they gave up Randle and Russell and Lou Will to get love and signed Derozan and Whiteside. They didn't trade for Derozan and Whiteside.

16 May 2016 16:26:26
I think this trade make sense for all three teams.

16 May 2016 19:43:16
I agree it makes sense but the Cavs won't do it because they wouldn't trade Love if they win the championship but if they don't they would. They are also high on TT so I don't know if they would trade him for Lopez and Randle even though it's fair. He compliments the big 3 so only another star would persuade the Cavs to trade Thompson.

16 May 2016 21:40:33
Doesn't make sense for the Knicks. Thompson is way over pod and a 1 way player. Lou Williams played horrible this year. And Russell. Well he has potential but not sure that's the route the Knicks decide to go. Especially not for Melo AND Lopez.

16 May 2016 22:37:02
I tink NY gets the better deal in this trade. They trade an old star for two young talents.

17 May 2016 01:00:14
Gasupo makes up they ideas to irritate Knicks fans, should he be Knicks fan, he should be banned.

Philly get Irving, shumpert, and Thompson
Irving
Shumpert
Covington
Thompson
Okafor
Philly would still have cap to build a great bench. Plus upgrade at sf.

Cavs get noel and number one pick. Draft ingram, Kevin Durant joins the cavs since his team can't beat the warriors. Cavs resign delly and mozgov. Trade love and Smith to Celtics for Bradley and pick 3.
Delly/ mo
Bradley/ Murray
Durant/ Ingram
James/ frye
Noel/ mozgov
Gives cavs more defense and strong bench. Plus James can lure durant to help win ring. Cavs hire new coach. Just think cavs need to dump tan and get something in return and chance to sign Durant. Then lbj can play pf and be at his Best. Delly and Bradley would play good defense on curry and Thompson while James and Durant can't be stopped. James would kill green in the post. Then they would have no answer for Durant especially if Barnes leaves. This would just be better option for doesn't and cavs can easily dump team, I just like this trade option for them. Plus Boston and philly get better. Especially Philly. Highly unlikely like most trades but this team be great durant would love to join and get max money.

CLE: 76ers #1 Pick, future 2nd Rd.

14 May 2016 18:12:18
Why does CLE want picks right now?

14 May 2016 18:39:15
What would a top pick do for a contending team like the Cavs?

14 May 2016 19:47:35
Absolutely terrible. Okafor will destroy booker over his career.

15 May 2016 02:21:54
Not about what Okafor will do out west . Okafor and Embid will not be together for 76ers

Sixers like Nerlen Noel with Embid, making Okafor available for a team needing frontcourt help, and the 76ers getting a young talented shooter to open things up for Embid/ Nerlen .

Why Cavs on top pick? Cavs not winning title. LeBron rather have Chris Paul than Kyrie, or Carmelo, making the top pick tradeable in a package to a team with a veteran player the Cavs may want . while 76ers get an all star caliber Irving/ guard to run w/ Booker, a young Ray Allen clone.

15 May 2016 05:05:52
Or cavs trade kyrie straight up for Paul? Why complicate it? And if Cavs are healthy and keep up the shooting they have a real shot.

16 May 2016 02:35:27
Cavs may want Carmelo, or another frontline scorer instead of Love . and Kyrie may not be what another team wants . What if LeBron leaves? Ben Simmons/ B. Ingram available . Cavs not beating GSW, so having the #1-3 pick w/ Love can make nice trade package for Cleveland .

anything possible with #1 pick, while Cavs reduce team salary cap for moves . Kyrie wants to lead his own team . Young talent in Philly can make that happen for him, especially with all the cap $$$ money the 76ers have . If Cavs lose, Bron will want changes, Love, #1-3 pick is a good start to get a NBA star player, and B. Simmons @ PF . IF Bron goes, they have a top pick to wipe the Cavs fans tears away.

Ben, I feel like you must be a Magic fan, and that you need to be much more realistic. You truly only have one player that would be really attractive in trades, and that's Oladipo.

Payton can't shoot, a prerequisite for PG's nowadays, Hezonja didn't prove much his rookie year, Vecevic can't play defense, and none of those pick are going to be top 5.

Some combination of them may get you a very good/ borderline star, but not a Butler, Kyrie or George.
