The Celtics being in win now mode and not afraid to spend money can go all in with a couple moves. The trade I'm looking at is doable but also not likely. But with it being that type of board figured it would be an interesting time. Come up with a legit trade, that's doable and not completely one sided. Like trading our bench for KAT, lets see if people can actually listen and have a discussion.
Celtics - Gallinari, Jackson, Kornet, Grant Williams, Pritchard and one of the 2023 2nd round picks.
Pacers - Buddy Hield, Jalen Smith
Celtics get the scorer off the bench we need with Buddy Hield. Jalen Smith gives us a the big man we're needing for this year, next and player option for the 3rd year. Pacers do this for a couple reasons. Pritchard gets a bigger role for them being the second point guard behind Haliburton. Grant Williams becomes a better fit for the Pacers with now keeping Myles Turner. William is able to be the shooting big next to Turner and Haliburton would be a good fit with as well. Williams would be able to get a pay day in the offseason with Hield off there books. Gallinari becomes a piece they can trade in the offseason if they'd like or keep him for the year.
Knicks - Cam Reddish
Celtics - 2nd round 2023
Celtics take a flyer on Cam for the rest of the year. Plays a wing position that is always in need plus can spell Brown and Tatum during the regular season at least for less minutes. Knicks get the second rounder they're looking for.
With doing this trade the buy out market would be great to fill in the roster. Will Barton is looking to get bought out and could come cheap also being linked to Boston it seems. A Josh Richardson and Nerlens Noel are two other players in the buy out market I'd be interested in. Granted Noel would be 3rd on the depth chart behind Williams and Smith but Smith can also play the 4 and moving Noel to the center at this point. The tantum of getting both Noel and Smith gives Horford and Williams plenty of time to rest for the post season.
