Being All-Star weekend and today being a Saturday with nothing happening in the league, it appears every radio show, tv talking head and NBA writer has decided to throw all sorts of trade ideas out there as "click bait" for their respective mediums.

Nance Jr, KAT, Grant, Porzingas, etc. Throw those trade ideas against a wall and see what sticks. It doesn't matter that their teams might have less than zero desire to trade them, but let's say the Celtics are hot for them and get fans clicking on sites or tuning into radio and television programs.

The Cavs aren't going to trade Nance unless they are absolutely blown away.  They really like him and being the local kid doesn't hurt.

PG - Tiny Archibald 73, Don Buse 77, Terrell Brandon 96
SG - Chet Walker 67, Michael Cooper 87, Raja Bell 06
SF - Predrag "Peja" Stojakovic 04, Kiki Vandeweghe 87, Robert Covington 18

Celtics FO keep showing interest in guys that are not on the block and are borderline untouchable ( though Nance is very touchable compared to J Grant).
Have to show the fans they are doing their due on the trade front

We shouldn't do a deal that doesn't put us over the top.

 With that said there are no moves that put us over the top. We don't have the chips to make a move that puts us over the top. I don't think we should mortgage the team to cripple ourselves even more.

The point is to add to what we do have(which isn't much at all), and what we have is brown and tatum. Everything else is moveable. But guys like pritchard, smart and williams shouldn't be moved for guys like grant, vuc or nance. That's a sideways move imo and a waste because it's a move that will ultimately equate to nothing.

The guys that need to go are nesmith, taco, edwards, ojeleye, green, langford and williams.

If we can package any number of those guys and any number of draft picks to get a serviceable back up SF and or PF then we'll be where we should be. We need to discard the waste of time and space.

Danny figures this out and gets us there it'll be a miracle.

Nance would be hard to pry away. He's a much-improved shooter and passer, is playing elite defence this year, and is on a team-friendly contract

Does he fit the Cavs timeline though? He is 28 and they have Allen at 22, Garland 21, Sexton 22, and Okoro at 20.

Did Kyle Kuzma and Anthony Davis fit LeBron's timeline?

Did Marc Gasol fit in Kawhi's and Siakam's timeline?

Did Andre Iguodala fit the Steph, Klay, Dray timeline?

Did Udonis Haslem with the Heat?

What about Rondo with the Big 3?

The idea of a timeline, sorry my friend, is MASSIVELY overblown and I am not sure it even exists with title winning clubs. Most title winners are experienced, meaning you probably aren't winning a title with an average team age of 24. Most consist of the top players in the league at that time. But they do have important members of the team from different age groups. No title winning team is made up of everyone on the same "timeline?

Does it matter? Every young team doesn't need just young guys. Actually a vet or three on young teams to show them how to be good NBA players is probably advisable. Otherwise you get teams stuck in the "We have tons of young talent but just can't seem to win" mode like Minnesota, Sacramento, Atlanta, Orlando and New Orleans has been in for like a decade.

The whole "timeline" theory is a complete and utter fallacy.

Sure and he is only in his 6th season and just turned 28.  He should have 5-6 years of prime left. They love Nance.  They aren't trading him unless some team is willing to pay far more than he is worth, so he isn't getting traded.

I think it does matter if there is the opportunity to sell high on veteran guys who likely won't age well, such as Nance.

When did Nance become so good? He's a role player.
