Anyone interested in Hield  or Bagley. Could be a nice inexpensive additions or trade chips for the Celts , not having to give up too much for the acquisition.

With Horford returning & adding Moses, I doubt u will see anymore trades..Thompson be only one if they do..Evan Fournier is the key..will they resign him or he go somewhere else
C/PF-Horford, Baynes, Noel, Theis, Morris,
SF/SG- Tatum, Brown, Hayward, Smart, Semi, Clark
PG- Irving, Rozier, Larkin

Can’t say I would disagree. I would use Horford in this trade. He certainly isn’t a long term piece. Would trade him in a minute for a true long term upgrade.

I wonder if a team like the Clippers (or other capped playoff team) would be interested in Fournier in a sign and trade.  The C's would have to get picks and expiring contracts back but with Leonard out to start the season next year they may be looking for someone to help keep them afloat while he rehabs.

Denver and the Suns both have 1st round picks in this draft. They may want more immediate help than a newly drafted player could provide.

Trades don't happen in a vacuum. What do we give up for them? This is always the question. Personally speaking, I wouldn't be interested in any of them unless it were a bargain deal on our part (at which point why would the Kings do it?).

If I were the Bucks, I'd be very interested in Buddy. I reckon he'd be an amazing fit next to Giannis. For instance, BroLo+DDV for Buddy is a valid trade salary-wise. I'd then go hard after Olynyk in free agency. Assuming he's out of their price range (most likely), I'd move Giannis at the 5 and I'd replace BroLo with a 3+D swing (Otto Porter/ Ariza/ Batum/ Tucker).

Jrue - Buddy - Middleton - Otto Porter - Giannis

No way this happens in real life, just saying. The Bucks are about to win it all. Chances are they'll keep BroLo and run it back. Fwiw, I don't think they can keep Portis though. They only have his non-Bird rights.

Horford and Smart would probably get this done

Anyone interested in Hield  or Bagley. Could be a nice inexpensive additions or trade chips for the Celts , not having to give up too much for the acquisition.

If the celts are gonna go after any one on the kings, I hope it’s Barnes. I still think he’d be a tremendous fit here. The problem is matching salaries. Would Thompson + TPE + 1st rounder be enough to entice SAC? I wouldn’t give up Smart though…
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

You can’t combine the TPE with salaries.  The only way to get Barnes without giving up a bunch of prospects or Smart is to hope they really want Evan Fournier, and need to send out salary in a sign-and-trade.  (Or that a third team wants Fournier and would be willing to help facilitate a 3-way sign-and-trade).

I like Barnes also, however that probably is not the Pfwd the celts need. A litter bit of a tweeter for that position

Horford for Barnes straight up is a valid trade, salary-wise. We'd have to add pick(s) though.



Not sure whether I'd do it for the Kings. In any case, Horford would provide veteran leadership for them. If there's a team in need of a vet leader, it's probably the Kings.

They could also do with a stopgap big given Holmes will likely leave and Bagley seems to want out too

PG: Trae Young / Jamal Murray / Jordan Clarkson
SG: Bradley Beal / Terry Rozier

Everyone keeps talking about trading Smart and Thompson.

The Celtic will become one of the most pushed around, heartless teams in the NBA.
