    16 Days in January—Determining Trade Deadline Activity

    Al Horford is not a good basketball player. Sacramento is desperately trying to make the playoffs/playin this year. Trading Hield for Al makes them a much worse team. No team is taking Horford without a pick stapled to him or BOS taking back a worse contract. Hield's descending contract is not...

    It was two years, not 1. 19/20 he shot 45% from three on 8.3 attempts 20/21 he shot 41% from thee on 8.5 attempts

    16 Days in January—Determining Trade Deadline Activity

    Unless the + in this deal is like 3 first round picks this is nowhere close to appropriate value for positive values players in Wood and Gordon

    CHA would be a great place for Turner to land. I would have to look more closely, but I think I would give up Oubre, a first, and filler for Turner.

    Myles Turner is not the stretch big that we all thought he could be, but he is perhaps the 2nd best defensive center in the league. With one year left after this at 18 million, Pritchard woudl for sure get one first round pick for him. Two may be a stretch, but depending on the protections, it...

    This makes no sense. He is exactly holding out for someone like Lillard. Why do you think he hasn't traded him yet?

    Not even close. Fox is not playing well, but there is still hope for him, even at his salary. Nesmith is viewed as a terrible bust.

    Obviously whiffing on the Reddish pick hurts, but this year Trae is having a much better year than Luka. Whether that continues going forward, who knows, but overweight and out of shape Luka could be a thing.

    Ben Taylor has done some great work on how Golden State runs their offense and what makes it work. He went into how and why their backups can run it too. The system has been in place and even when they were struggling and missing Curry and/or Klay and/or Green, they still ran the same stuf with...

    Tatum shouldn't be on front of Butler or Allen

    Portland seems like a nice logical fit for a trade. Their defense is atrocious and they have lost 14 of their past 18 games. Yet somehow are only 4 games back of the 8 seed. A Dame/Smart backcourt fits so much better than a Dame/CJ duo. Smart, Horford, Pritchard, 2023 1st for CJ, Nance Jr

    And looking at laast years trades, it seems that non-difference makers in last years of their deal don't net all that much Derrick Rose - 2021 2nd round pick and the complete bust Smith Jr Trevor Ariza - 2027 2nd round pick George Hill - two 2nd round picks Delon Wright - two 2nds Terence Davis...

    As a Celtics fan, I would be irate if we gave up a lottery protected first for 1/2 season of Dennis Shroder. Likewise, if I were a CLE fan I would be equally mad. We are not going to get a first round pick for a guy who was freely available to just about every team and is not a difference maker...

    Shams: Celtics "engaged in conversations" with 76ers for Ben Simmons

    I think you most assuredly would get something in addition to Simmons if you trade Brown.

    Analysis of Celtics Games, '21-'22 Season

    I can't imagine Shroder netting us a first round pick. He was freely available this offseason and the best offer he got was the mini mid level. He is what he is, which is not a difference maker.
