"Celtics get: Kevin Love, Larry Nance Jr., Collin Sextonwe give up the 3 best players and a first? was that the Cavs' site?
Cavaliers get: Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart, Robert Williams, 2021 first-round pick"
I saw this proposal on another site. It totally changes both teams but I'm not sure if either gets better and I would hate to see TIMELORD go!
I've proposed something like Love and Sexton for Walker, Langford, 16. I think that trade might have some legs and merit from both teams. Potentially could send Walker to the Knicks, which makes even more sense.
BOS - Love, Sexton
NY - Walker, G. Williams
CLE - Knox, Langford, 16, 19
Boston would have to pay Sexton, which means a huge payroll for that 22-23 season until Love comes off the books, but that might be enough to avoid the tax this year and still keep Fournier.
I just think something like that has the chance to make Boston more cohesive next year and a lot better down the line if Sexton can learn how to reign it in a bit as he would have a chance to be a real legit 3rd star, plus Boston still keeps its two best young players in R. Williams and Nesmith as well as the veteran depth in Thompson, Smart, and Fournier.
Next year (bring back the 3 free agents, 1 open spot)
Smalls - Sexton, Pritchard, Edwards
Wings - Brown, Smart, Fournier, Nesmith
Swings - Tatum, Parker, Ojeleye
Bigs - Love, Williams, Thompson, Kornet
A lot of roster flexibility, where you can go bigger or smaller depending on matchups. Generally a more talented team, and if Sexton can figure out, a chance to be a real contender when Tatum and Brown hit their apexes.
