76ers - Nets - Heat

76ers
Send: Okafor
Receive: Dragic and Donald Sloan

Nets
Send: Brook Lopez, Sloan
Receive: Okafor, Richardson

Miami
Send: Dragic and Richardson
Receive: Lopez

Obviously assuming Whiteside goes elsewhere. This puts Miami in play for Conley Jr while replacing their hole at center (not great to see Winslow playing there in that playoffs) . For Nets, obvious push to the future. After trading Young its obvious that's that what they are trying to do. Sixers need a PG and can take on Dragic's somewhat bad contract and even get a backup PG. Also need to clear up space down low.

24 Jun 2016 21:02:31
No way Nets can get Okafor and Richardson. Richardson is on an absolute bargain contract and he will be a very quality player (3&d guy)

24 Jun 2016 21:10:41
I feel like the Heat are the biggest movers and shakers here, but the deal just makes them worse. I'd rather have Whiteside and Dragic than B. Lopez and Conoley. Unless the point is that Whiteside is ditching Miami for the Lakers, but then why would he go when Miami can offer more money, more years, and similar weather, is he leaving for Hollywood? Trying to kick off that tv career.

25 Jun 2016 02:12:52
Don't think Nets can get that much and I think Miami's chances are better of retaining whiteside then signing conley.

25 Jun 2016 03:57:52
Sixers don't entertain this.

23 Jun 2016 22:15:00
heat : conley
grizzlies : dragic, mcroberts, pick.

24 Jun 2016 00:59:27
Pat Riley-esque saavy move but Grizzlies probably keep Conley. Two potential suitors of Conley (Pacers and Jazz) are likely out of it now so I kinda like Grizzlies chances of resigning Conley. Only way this happens is if Conley prefers Miami and threatens to leave for nothing to another team (I guess Heat could sign him outright but it would potentially screw up a lot of things) since if Conley wants to stay in Memphis I don't think this trade is enough to get them to trade him willingly.

24 Jun 2016 02:50:28
He could threaten to sign in Dallas.

20 Jun 2016 09:23:55
Durant, James, and whiteside sign with lakes.
Draft Ingram. Resign clarkson. I understand james just won but he struggled and this option better in long run for his career. Plus think he would like LA better then Cleveland and Miami.
Russell/ clarkson
Ingram/ Williams
Durant/ young
James/ randle
Whiteside/ pick 32.

20 Jun 2016 10:27:13
And then kobe will go back into his prime and join them. Smh, straight up delusional.

20 Jun 2016 12:38:44
He would like LA better than Cleveland? You do realize that in the history of professional sport no superstar has wanted to go to Cleveland as an FA until LBJ re-signed there two years ago. LA doesn't impress anybody anymore, and especially not James.

20 Jun 2016 13:57:02
Why not. Dare to dream.

21 Jun 2016 03:13:28
Only reason i say this because lakers have cap to sign and everyone would be happy. James and Durant couldn't be stopped together. Like Kobe and Jordan teaming up, would been unstoppable!

17 Jun 2016 16:28:15
Twolves-Grizzlies

Twolves get Tony Allen, Jordan Adams, and Miami 2017 2nd rd pick

Grizzlies get Shabazz Muhammad.

17 Jun 2016 18:37:31
I don't think Shabazz has that much value.

17 Jun 2016 19:34:29
Shabazz is still 23 years old.

17 Jun 2016 20:21:16
MCW is only 24. Mo Harkless is only 23. Age doesn't matter if someone shows they're not a difference maker.

Shabazz is nice, but his destiny is to be the next Jamal Crawford/ JR Smith/ Nick Young kind of guy. Crawford is probably his ceiling, best case scenario.

17 Jun 2016 20:58:58
Ben, and what exactly is Adams ceiling? He has done jack in the NBA. And Allen is old.

Not sure why Minnesota does this.

17 Jun 2016 21:05:00
Age does matter because if you have 2 players with similar stats and produce about the same production. Would you rather have the one who is 23 or the one who is 35? The one with 23 has plenty of time to improve while the 35 one will only continue to decline.

17 Jun 2016 21:57:15
Tony Allen is also a lock down defender while shabazz is a bad defender. Just saying that shabazz being somewhat young doesn't mean is value is through the roof. You know what you're getting with him. This is probably a fair trade. A short term help in Allen, a low quality prospect, and a second round pick.

What is shabazz worth? Maybe a late first. Definitely not a first in the lottery.

18 Jun 2016 00:27:36
Ben and what is Memphis actually giving up in this trade? A huge bust. A late 2nd round pick. And a rapidly declining defender.

Minnesota would be better off sending Bazz to Philly for one of their late 1st round picks.

18 Jun 2016 15:38:55
Allen > Muhammad. not even close.

18 Jun 2016 15:39:29
. I would also hope Philly doesn't want him.

16 Jun 2016 05:16:38
Cavs/ Heat

Cavs get: Chris Bosh
Heat get: Kevin Love.

16 Jun 2016 05:45:41
1. Bosh isn't cleared to play.
2. Cleveland wouldn't do this deal.
3. Bosh didn't enjoy playing with LBJ.

16 Jun 2016 07:21:32
Yeah I really think bosh didn't like winning those two rings.

16 Jun 2016 12:36:01
Cleveland makes this deal in a second if Bosh is healthy and cleared to play.

15 Jun 2016 20:52:13
Suns Get: James Harden

Rockets Get: Devin Booker, #4. #10, 2018 Suns 1st, 2018 Heat 1st (via Suns), 2019 Cavs 1st (via Suns)

Bucks Get: Brandon Knight


Suns get a lethal combo of Bledsoe and Harden, can realistically pursue top tier free agent (nearly got LMA last summer) .

James Harden isn't enough to single handedly carry the Rockets in a stacked Western Conference, can cash in on him and tank for Harry Giles.

Bucks can get back the PG that they never should of traded.

15 Jun 2016 23:58:39
Giannis is going to play the one next year. Jason Kidd said that is what he will do with him.

16 Jun 2016 01:36:10
The bucks traded knight cause they didn't want to pay both knight and Middleton they're not going to take him back especially for a lottery pick.

16 Jun 2016 03:58:39
Brandon Knight can easily run the 2.

13 Jun 2016 06:23:20
76ers off season moves

1. Draft Ben Simmons to play pg, Ala magic Johnson.

2. Trade Noel to Orlando for Hezonja

3. package #24 and #26, move up to pick denzel Valentine (DX has him going #23, I think he's more in the 18-19 range)

4. convince Dario to bring is game to the NBA

5. Sign dj Augustin as vet back up pg

6. Sign loul Deng, vet to play sf. I think if Miami has toax out whiteside, Deng is not resigned. perfect vet for philly.

pg: Simmons, Augustin, McConnell
Sg: Hezonja, Valentine, Stauskas
Sf: Deng, Covington, Grant
pf: Okafor, Saric, Landry
C : Embiid, Okafor, Holmes.

13 Jun 2016 07:36:51
What's the unbelievable part to my post? . I'm not saying Simmons is magic Johnson, just that the sixers could use him that way. is Noel for Hezonja that off in value? Are Augustin and Deng untouchable? Could Valentine be there at #19? All these things may not happen, put they don't seem completely "unbelievable ".

13 Jun 2016 11:47:27
Ben Simmons isn't able to be a true pg in the league. There is a difference between running him as a point forward and lining up as a pg like you suggested. That's not how you develop talent. It's how you crush it.

13 Jun 2016 12:34:50
Simmons maybe could run the point but he won't be able to guard it on the other side you need someone else to guard pgs.

13 Jun 2016 13:19:24
Simmons can't shoot from the outside either, which is almost a prerequisite of the modern PG.

13 Jun 2016 13:36:26
Simmons has great star potential but he should be no lower then a sf, the Hezonja deal is a tough one he didn't get mins last year so big risk here as Noel is a proven Defender is easily comparable to Chandler with possibly a better offensive skill set if he continues to develop.
Hezonja has a high ceiling but could also drop as well his size, athleticism, range and scoring all could lead to great things which would be a great steal for Philly but if he doesn't then he maybe a bust.
Embiid and Okafor again is a risk if Embiid ain't healthy.

13 Jun 2016 14:11:43
Orlando would have to add to the Noel trade.

08 Jun 2016 21:00:45
If Lebron goes back to the Heat

Mia - Sac - Was

Trade Whiteside and get back at least another prospect

Mia gets - WCS and Oubre Jr

Sac gets - Winslow

Was gets - Whiteside (s&t) *Trades Gortat*

Dragic - Johnson
Wade - Richardson
James - Oubre
Bosh - McRoberts
WCS - Stat

Rondo - Collison
Murray - McClemore
Gay - Casspi
Winslow - Acy
Cousins - Koufos

Wall - Sessions
Beal - Neal
Porter - Dudley
Morris - FA
Whiteside - Nene.

09 Jun 2016 01:22:15
Damn Wizards are getting a value but they can sign Whiteside out right if they really wanted to the sign and trade would just be so Whiteside can get more money and 5th year (he hasn't made much in his career so I could see him wanting to maximize his guaranteed money instead of shorter deal and risking injury) so I guess Heat would take whatever they can get if he's leaving anyway. I thought Kings should've drafted Winslow instead of WCS in first place (idk if they would be willing to swap since they did choose WCS over Winslow in draft) . That team could be attractive to Lebron pending the health of Bosh which is a big unknown.

07 Jun 2016 15:05:54
Knick sixers.

Knick want to get into the first rounder this year.

Sixers trade Miami and okc pick

Knicks trade Arron affalo (38percent three point shooter and a vet) and jerian grant

Sixers get a nice vet and a young pg who is the brother of Jerami grant.

Knicks get a chance to draft some younger guys. If I was them if also trade melo immediately but that's aside from This trade.

07 Jun 2016 15:23:01
Id be all on this for the knicks. Afflalo, eh. and grant has been underwhelming when he was given a chance.

07 Jun 2016 16:30:31
They may get 1 of the Sixers picks. Not both.

07 Jun 2016 16:41:30
no from a sixers fan.

07 Jun 2016 15:39:08
Afflalo would have to opt in for this trade to happen.

07 Jun 2016 15:39:08
Afflalo would have to opt in for this trade to happen.

07 Jun 2016 22:14:53
Afflalo is not opting in to his deal, and I don't see interest from either him or the Sixers in him landing in Philly.

Giannis is going to run the pg.

31 May 2016 18:19:28
Another okafor trade. but with a twist!

Cleveland (after the lose to the warriors. ) NY
Philly.

Phi gives
-okafor
-Miami pick
-Okc pick
-saric

Get
-Kevin love


Cleveland gives
-Kevin love

Get
-Carmelo


NY gives
-Carmelo

Get
Okafor
Miami pick
Okc pick
Saric

Not sure if Philly give enough up but it would help Philly on the path to become a real NBA team again. Carmelo and LeBron always want to play together and NY would get okafor to put next to Porzingis and some picks to build.

31 May 2016 22:23:25
Way to much for melo. The guy is a old bust now on a bad contract.

Just do melo for love straight up. Lebron is the only one who wou do over pay for melo since he runs the Cavs now.

31 May 2016 22:27:35
I disagree, I think philly gives up too much. Take saric out of the deal and I think it's a fair deal.

31 May 2016 23:09:36
Philly says no.

01 Jun 2016 00:10:40
Carmelo is not worth all of that.

01 Jun 2016 01:52:58
thate really unbalanced.

01 Jun 2016 02:09:33
Melo being worth all of that or not is inconsequential. If it were a Philly/ Knicks only deal, then I woul suggest Philly doesn't do it, but all Philly fans have to think about is it's that package for Love, which is who they get in this deal.

Love for Melo doesn't work, what do the Knicks need with another PF when they have Zinger. Adding Okafor means flipping Lopez somewhere else, which I cou see them doing. Zinger could play Center, but I see him staying at the four more likely.

02 Jun 2016 08:42:00
How would Philly be giving up too much? Saric has never played in the NBA and is unproven, and Okafor is good but not great so far, and you get a player who fits next to Noel perfectly. And honestly Melo isn't worth is but LeBron loves him.

31 May 2016 18:16:22
Clippers rebuilding:

1) Clippers- NY
Knicks: C Paul
Clippers: Porzingis+ Calderon+ future 1rnd Knicks

2) Clippers -Boston
Boston: B Griffin
Clippers: #3 (draft Dunn) + 1rnd pick Bost 17 (swap Nets) + 1rnd pick Nets 18

3) Clippers- Phoenix
Phoenix: D Jordan
Clippers: T Chandler+
#4 Hield+ 1rnd pick Miami 18 and 21+ 1rnd pick Detroint 2020


Clippers:
C: T Chandler
PF: Porzingis
SF: free agent
SG: Hield
PG: Dunn

2017 (aim high in the draft)
Nets pick: Draft Jackson
Clippers pick (to Toronto top 14 protected) : Draft: H Giles

C: Porzingis
PF: Giles
SF Jackson
SG: Hield
PG: Dunn.

31 May 2016 22:25:11
Clippers will not rebuild that way.

31 May 2016 23:20:56
Knicks will never trade Porzingis. Especially for a PG who is in his 30s and has been open about early retirement to spend time with his kids.

01 Jun 2016 02:10:36
Knicks would trade Zinger, just not for Paul.

28 May 2016 15:34:30
Kings - Heat

Kings get Winslow, McRoberts

Heat get WCS, McLemore.

28 May 2016 17:35:28
This could benefit both teams
I would like to see Winslow in a Kings uniform.

27 May 2016 03:49:41
76ers 7 trades, signings, and picks

1. Sixers/ Magic.

Noel and #26 for Hezonja


2. Sixers/ Suns

Lakers #1 2017 (1-3 protected), 2018 unprotected, #24 Miami pick and Grant for Bledsoe and #13. Next year's draft is loaded with talent. Lakers pick will most likely be 4-8.) range.

3. Draft Simmons #1

4. Draft Korkmaz #13

5. Sign Bismarck Biyumbo, C

6. Sign Jonas Jerebeko, sf

7. Bring over Saric

Pg: Bledsoe, Ish, McConnell
Sg: Hezonja, Korkmaz, Stauskas
Sf: Simmons, Covington, Jerebeko
Pf: Okafor, Saric, Landry
C: Embiid, Biyumbo, Holmes.

27 May 2016 06:05:33
First deal may work although I think Orlando is real high on Hezonja. Also I think they use #11 to get Kormaz if they make this trade or just get Deyonta Davis if they don't. Second trade I is the 2018 the Sixers pick? If so then deal maybe fair. I think Lakers pick is risky cause it could not even be a lottery pick if Lakers sign a major FA or decide to swing a deal for a superstar although most likely its in 4-8 range you predict. Not sure if PHx will want to include #13 maybe their later pick (I think 27).

27 May 2016 13:34:08
I don't think a late 1st is enough to make up the difference for the Magic. Hezonja is under a rookie contract for 2 more years and has a higher ceiling. He's probably the team's 2nd most valuable piece.

27 May 2016 13:59:15
No way I'm giving Noel and a pick for a back up IN henjoza. Not a chance.

27 May 2016 14:27:41
Come on Tre. You undervalue Hezonja. He scored 6 a game last year. Kobe only got 7 his first year so there you have it.

(I think Hezonja's going to be a pretty good player in the right situation. But sometimes you need to move the wing player for the big man. )

27 May 2016 14:27:45
Sixers say no to the first trade. Suns say no to the second trade.

I'm seeing too many trades where people are thinking that the Sixers are going to be giving big guys away just because they need to upgrade at guard. A Herzonja for Noel swap is closer, but I still think Sixers say no.

27 May 2016 14:47:20
Biyombo will get paid this year ($15M per minimum) . You're going to sign him for that kind of money to be a backup?

You trade Noel (I'd rather trade Okafor personally if I were the 76ers), but sign another starting quality center. You create another log jam.

28 May 2016 14:41:19
Noel >>>>>>Hezonja.

26 May 2016 02:28:49
Things are heating up between Paul George and the reunion with ex- head coach Frank Vogel

Magic-Pacers

Pacers get: Vucevic, Fournier, Hezonja, Payton,2016 1st,2018 Lakers Pick, 2018 1st

Magic get: Paul George.

26 May 2016 05:02:37
Where tf did you read that? LOLOLOLOLOL.

26 May 2016 09:15:10
Their have been rumours but I think it's media led as theirs rumours Lakers to trade for George and with Vogel at the Magic I think the media jus making a story as a Magic fan it would be great but unfortunately it will be really hard to do their best chance was with Harris to replace George plus players and pieces but he's gone now.
BENSIMMONS you can't sign and trade with picks included so Fournier is a no go.
Magic would need to offer way more and the Lakers pick will be 2 2nds now the only way you get this is with another team included and with Lakers, Celtics and Sixers all with some better picks and some trade assets it would be tough to get Pacers interested as those teams could attract more interest.

25 May 2016 01:38:19
Suns offseason

-Trade Brandon Knight, #13 pick, Miami 2018 1st, to 76ers for Jahlil Okafor, Carl Landry, and a future 2nd

-Trade Tyson Chandler, #28 pick, to Rockets for Corey Brewer, #37 pick

Draft:
4- Dragan Bender
34-Jaron Blossomgame
37-Kahlil Felder

Free agency:
-Sign Kent Bazemore 4yr 67m
-Sign Jerryd Bayless 2yr 16m
-Sign Chris Kaman 1yr 4m
-Sign Jeff Ayres 1yr 2m

Lineup:
Bledsoe/ Bayless/ Felder
Booker/ Brewer/ Goodwin
Bazemore/ Tucker/ Blossomgame
Bender/ Warren/ Ayres
Okafor/ Len/ Kaman.

25 May 2016 13:52:27
Knight isn't worth Okafor. Sixer would want the fourth pick or Bledsoe plus 13.

24 May 2016 17:12:38
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.

23 May 2016 17:55:04
Miami Heat offseason

Trade Dragic and Mcroberts for Chris Paul

Trade Bosh for Melo


Resign Wade
Resign Whiteside
Sign Lebron takes a pay cut becuase of the dream team he wants

Paul
Wade
Lebron
Melo
Whiteside.

23 May 2016 18:11:39
No way the Knicks go for that.

23 May 2016 18:37:52
Dragic and mcbob aren't enough for Paul

NY wouldn't trade Melo for someone that might never play again.

Whiteside wouldn't stay to be the odd man out of the super friends, and Miami couldn't afford him.

Dreams only man. Dreams.

Only part of this I give a chance of coming true are resigning Wade and resigning Whiteside.

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.

Sorry I know it's long.

You don't really expect people to read that novel right?

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.

Pels would pounce at that deal.
