What if Portland decides to blow it up, and Boston decides to go all-in?

Celtics get Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum

Thunder get Jaylen Brown

Trailblazers get Josh Giddey, Al Horford, Dennis Schroeder, 2 unprotected firsts from Boston, 2 first round pick swaps from Boston, the Thunder's unprotected 2024 first, and the Clippers' unprotected firsts in 2024 and 2026 from OKC.

The Celtics form a lethal big 3 in a wide open east, the Thunder get a young star to complement SGA, and the Trailblazers get a new point guard to build around in Giddey, an expiring contract in Schroeder, a valuable big whose contract expires next year in Horford, $31.3 million in cap space, and at least 5 unprotected firsts (possibly 7 with swaps).

Meant to say that this trade would take $31.3 million off the books for Portland, not $31.3 million in cap space. This trade would put Portland $5.8 million under the salary cap, whereas they're currently $1.3 million into the luxury tax ($25.5 million over the salary cap) .

Take McCollum off the deal and lessen the burden for Boston. Then maybe. There’s no point in trading half your team to become the Blazers.


3.) 14 Dec 2021 02:17:39
I think OKC is really happy with Giddey as their prize pick and wouldn't want to part with him and 3 other upcoming 1st rounders even if its for Brown. (Maybe he's worth that much, but I don't see OKC valuing him that much) . It would take a huge gulp for Celtics with the health status of both their acquisitions here. I think I'd love it if I'm Portland's GM because they can easily cut Horford and be done with Schroeder next year and clean up the cap.


4.) 14 Dec 2021 02:19:50
I don't see this as the direction Boston wants to go in at all.


5.) 14 Dec 2021 06:06:47
BHC, trading 3 players equates to trading half the team? Also, if the Celtics become the Blazers after this deal, then would you mind telling me who Jayson Tatum is on the Blazers? With him, Williams, and Smart still on the roster, this becomes a far better team than what they have in Portland.


6.) 14 Dec 2021 11:28:05
The thing is Boston just isn't going to trade Brown for Dame. I know he's a top whatever player and all that good stuff but he's a little gaurd on the wrong side of 30 who's going to be making insane money and may already be declining. I said here no to Brown for Vucevic and people said but they need a big man. I said no to Brown for Harden and people thought I was nuts. It's also a no for Dame even if Brown were to hit the trade market which is unrealistic anyway. As far as CJ, poor defender and this injury is concerning. Not much interest there.


7.) 14 Dec 2021 11:57:40
Boston haven't been significant in many years. They've been in mediocrity mostly when they had Paul Pierce. Then they traded for 2 star players in their 30's and finally won a championship. Same thing will happen with Tatum or Brown if Boston doesn't make a move in the near future. Trading assets for all stars to compliment their best player will be a good direction imo. Just saying.


8.) 14 Dec 2021 13:12:12
Paul Pierce was late in his career. Tatum and Brown are not. I bet there are a lot of teams who don't have interest in Dame. The dude is going to be making over 50 million when he's 35. No thanks. Btw Tatum and Brown, as young as they are, have been to 2 Eastern Conference finals. They are not far off now despite what it may seem to some.


9.) 14 Dec 2021 16:49:17
Tatum and Brown won't get past Durant and Harden for years. Also won't get pass Giannis and his Bucks. Maybe if injuries come, they'll be lucky.


10.) 14 Dec 2021 18:14:12
I think that's far from a given, but if you believe that then I guess you believe all of the other teams should trade away one of their best players.

This is a trade I'd like to see happen, and I think it makes sense for both sides.

Hornets get Lonzo Ball and a second round pick

Bulls get Terry Rozier and PJ Washington

I think it'd be fascinating to watch the Ball brothers play together. Lonzo would make LaMelo's life a lot easier: spread the floor for him, take playmaking pressure off him, and defend the opposing team's best perimeter player for him. Plus, Lonzo is already locked up contractually.

The Bulls address their front court needs by getting an excellent 3-and-D player at the 4. Rozier is a downgrade at point guard, but he's still an offensive threat who should thrive with all of the attention going to LaVine and DeRozan.

Valuewise, yeah good. But I believe Chicago will hold on to Ball. He's been playing pretty great for them. He facilitates, Rozier will probably takes some shots from Derozan and Lavine.

If things haven't drastically improved for the Celtics by the trade deadline, then who says no?

Warriors get Robert Williams III

Celtics get James Wiseman

Warriors get a young stud center who realistically could shoot 80% from the field with the spacing in GSW. The Celtics get a younger big with more height and upside as they look to the future rather than winning right now.

Casual

1.) 06 Dec 2021 06:01:54
I believe things have already drastically improved for Boston who are 13 - 11 after starting 2 - 5 and haven't had a healthy Brown yet.

As far as the trade, I love Williams but there are injury concerns. Wiseman seems to have injury concerns as well so far so I don't know. Seems like a risk from both sides.

Warriors get Myles Turner and a second round pick

Pacers get James Wiseman and Jonathan Kuminga

The Warriors get a big who can spread the floor and defend Ayton, the Pacers go young with two high upside prospects.

Casual

1.) 05 Dec 2021 16:15:07
I trow in a pick if GS does this trade.


2.) 05 Dec 2021 19:11:00
Gasupo, a pick to the Warriors?


3.) 06 Dec 2021 02:31:14
Wiseman was the number two pick in the 2020 draft. If there was a re-draft, what would he be, about 3 to 5? I don't think Turner is worth a pick that high, much less adding in another good prospect.


4.) 06 Dec 2021 04:14:25
Nightcap: Wiseman had an unimpressive rookie season and hasn't played at all this year, not to mention pre-draft concerns about his commitment. His value isn't that high. Kuminga had to be included for salary purposes, although Looney would work too. I think you're undervaluing Turner; at 25 years old he's leading the NBA in blocks per game and shooting 40% from 3 on nearly 5 attempts. He would instantly make GSW downright terrifying.


5.) 06 Dec 2021 04:18:31
And to your re-draft point: I think Melo, Ant, Haliburton, Cole Anthony, Saddiq Bey, and maybe even Patrick Williams would all go ahead of him in a re-draft.


6.) 06 Dec 2021 05:56:26
I see the argument for Cole and Williams but I don't think quite that highly of Bey. Still, I see Turner's value as more of a late lottery pick. maybe I'm wrong.


7.) 06 Dec 2021 06:32:12
I think Turner doesn't get a lot of love due to his unimpressive rebounding numbers but he's pretty much the perfect complementary big to have on a championship team. Elite rim-protection, elite shooting, and still only 25. I'd be surprised if you can get that for a late lottery pick.


8.) 06 Dec 2021 12:08:24
Elite shooting?


9.) 06 Dec 2021 16:13:15
40% from 3 on almost 5 attempts as a big man isn't elite to you? Seems pretty damn good to me. KAT is the only big shooting a higher % on more attempts.


10.) 06 Dec 2021 16:21:16
Turner hitting over 40% from 3 on almost 5 attempts per game this year.


11.) 06 Dec 2021 16:53:15
A good 20 games and he's an elite shooter now? He's likely to fall back to his norm. All I'll say is if he's on Golden State and I'm an opposing coach, I want him to shoot a lot.


12.) 06 Dec 2021 17:25:52
On Golden State he'll get way better looks than he's getting right now, which would only serve to raise that %.


13.) 06 Dec 2021 18:03:56
He's a catch and shoot guy now. An opposing team would certainly want him taking shots from Curry and co.

Warriors get Christian Wood and a second round pick

Rockets get James Wiseman and Moses Moody

The Warriors get a stretch big who would make their offense even more lethal. The Rockets get a high upside big in Wiseman and a potential future 6th man in Moody.

It's a good deal for the 76ers but I don't think it's the no-brainer that everyone thinks it is. The 6ers perimeter defense is gone after this trade, and 2/ 3 of their 3 best players are gone with no current star incoming. The cap relief would be nice, but this trade doesn't even work financially.

Love it as a Pistons fan. I'd be all in on trading Olynyk and giving all the minutes at the 5 to Stewart and Bol.
