I've simply quoted my co-mod's original post from the previous thread as it is apparently closed / removed now.
 
So I guess I do not have to reiterate the reasons why thread closure or removal from the sub-forum is part of the SOP or a routine procedure especially if it is infested with violations / violators.   :rolleyes:

As I have zero idea what you guys are talking about in this thread, I removed the old one and started a new one, feel free to post and comment, but please no flaming.

News I read today...

Boston has decided to swap picks with Philadelphia in which includes a future round pick from the Sixers going to the Celtics... This would mean Markelle Fultz will still become the 1st pick but will be with Philly instead...

IMO, the only purpose for Ainge to trade down and trade the #1 pick for more future picks is to eventually use these as trade bait for a true blue superstar. Anthony Davis, won't you look good in Celtic green!  ;)

Word has it that Boston isn't sold on Fultz and is interested on another player to draft. The trade actually makes more sense since trading down to 3rd spot, they get a future pick and still get the player that they are intersted in.

 

Win-win for Boston imo.

 

As for Philly, they still trust the process and you are lookiang at a very good and young core. If they manage to stay healthy, the 76ers will be the team to contend with in the NBA in the near future.

uh no... it's likely Chicago's price for Butler was too high for Ainge's liking

 

for now, he can just copy Belichick and stockpile on draft picks... the team is probably just another go-to scorer and a solid defensive F/C away from being championship caliber

Ainge is keen on acquiring Porzingis but Phil Jackson's asking price is too steep. This year's #3 pick, next year's Brooklyn pick, Jae Crowder and Jaylen Brown. Jackson is asking for the moon and Ainge won't give it to him. I won't trade next year's pick because that pick may turn out to be Mo Bamba or Deandre Ayton, both long and athletic super centers who can post up, hit the long bomb and score off the dribble, not to mention block shots. Also, I won't trade Jaylen Brown who is a budding superstar. 

 

Can you blame Phil though? He's making the only player that should be untradeable, tradeable so he should ask for the moon and some stars too.

 

Maybe Ainge's next move will come midseason depending on how the roster turns out.

PG got traded...but not to the C's. BG will stay with the clippers. I guess dapat may bagong wish list na on how the C's can unseat the Cavs than hoping for these two to join forces in Boston. Lol

If Celts miss on Hayward, they would still be fine.  They would still have lots of picks next yr as assets for trading for another star if needed. 

 

They need to address their lack of rebounding in the season that just passed.

If they miss on GH after missing on PG earler and BG as well that only shows their plan A this offseason is a failure.
The east may have weakened but the question remains will these celtics equipt with their superstar clones be able to unseat king james and the Cavs next season?

Trading for Melo is surely a desperate move to try and win now ... Too desperate to even consider of thinking of it.

Am not a fan of Anthony's game so i hope Danny Ainge doesnt get him. Latest is he is willing to waive NT clause for Cleveland and Houston as destination.

 

I am not familiar with the top recruits for coming season...but i hope the Celts gets one of them

 

 

Yes, they would still be fine. I don't think Danny would trade those picks that the Cs have next year and, to me, this is an excellent decision. Take a look at a previous post of mine regarding these picks. These picks may turn out to be Michael Porter and Deandre Ayton. Porter reminds me of Durant and Ayton reminds me of Olajuwon with a three-point shot. These two would probably be part of the next Celtic dynasty together with Tatum and Brown. For the Cs, the present is bright and the future will be brighter. 

 

Besides, if they miss on Hayward, they still have the Anthony option.

Boston just waived Tyler Zeller. This could be a move for salary cap space for Hayward. The Cs made a qualifying offer to Olynyk but I don't think Olynyk will bite. He's probably gone. Ainge really wants Hayward and I think that the second star would be Anthony. 

 

Yes it is, and also a cost cutting move.  With Ante Zizic signed, Zeller was expendable and going to be expensive bec his contract would have beenf ull guarnteed for '17-18

Jayson Tatum scored 21 points, including the game winner ala Paul Pierce to win it for the Cs in a closely-fought contest against the Sixers in Summer League play. Jaylen Brown scored 29 points. These two are gonna be the SF and SG of the future. Or maybe the PF and SF of the future depending on the draft picks next year. 

 

Am not use of GH's rebounding figures, but i am sure his arrival together with lottery pick Jayson Tatum will help Boston on the boards, but most esp on offense.
