C's trade: Galo, PP, Hauser, Kornet, Jackson, two 1st and two highest 2nds.

Jazz trade: Markkanen, NAW (fits Schroeder TPE), Azuibke (fits Bol TPE).

C's end up with main squad of,
Smart/White
JB/Brog
JT/NAW
Markkanen/Grant
TL/Al/Blake

Is Markkanen worth four picks? Does he put C's on top? Would DA even consider it?

Let me put the question back to you. If youíre Danny Ainge, would you trade a young all-star wing for that collection of players/picks? I donít think Utah wants to move off Markkanen, but if they did I think other teams could offer them more.

 The Lauri ship has sailed. I asked In the off season if we should trade D White for Lauri and that was shot down hard here. That didn't age well at all.

Why in the world would Utah trade their best player for all of our junk?

Thatís fair - I remember it and I was one who preferred White. I was wrong. In fairness, LM has played much much better this year than heíd ever shown before. I thought he was basically Kelly Olynik. So hat tip to you and Utah for seeing his potential.

I mean, considering that Cleveland turned him into Donovan Mitchell and Utah was sitting on Conley, Clarkson, and Sexton after the trade the idea that Boston could have swung that trade hasn't aged well at all either.

I wouldn't hamstring the future tade possibilities for Lauri as I don't think he will make much difference in a playoff series.
I was finally wrong. Boston not only didn't win in 5, but didn't win at all.

You realize you trading with Danny Ainge?

He would've been a good buy low candidate but now his value is high and it remains to be seen if he can put together more than half a year of solid play.

Yep. Certainly wanted him before Danny snagged him. Now it looks like it will take an overpay to get him.
